Update from Eye Specialist

Leila is coming along in her therapy. Each week we go they seem excited by her progress. We work really hard at therapy and at home to ensure she has the best chance possible.

Last Thursday we went back to the eye specialist. When Leila gets tired her eyes still wander a bit. By our last conversation I was expecting glasses. Instead, he wants to do surgery to strengthen the eye muscles.  If at all possible we would like to avoid our little girl going through another surgery. Yesterday, I spoke to her therapists to see if there was anything we could do therapy wise to work on strengthening the eye muscles without surgery. The therapists told me they do not like this surgery and why. They feel it is unnecessary and have seen cases where the surgery does more harm than good.  They said there are things to do besides surgery. Now, Brian and I need prayers. We have another hard decision to make. We pray there will be enough improvement by the time we see the eye doctor again that he won't want to do surgery anymore.

I think we need a padded house for Logan! He is everywhere and into everything. He has no fear and tries to climb up on and just let go of things. The poor guy falls A LOT! He has his first tooth pushing through. He's been a pretty cranky little thing the last couple of days. Hopefully it comes on through quickly :)

If you haven't seen these yet, here are a few of the twins 12 month pics.

and some random ones...

  1. OMG they are so precious! I love their huge smiles. Miracle babies is what they both are. My beautiful Leila, I can't wait to see her again and I hope she remembers me and lets me hold her again. I so enjoyed that.

    I knew for some reason from the beginning that Logan was going to be the go getter/into everything child. What a stinker he is. Watch out he will be turning loose and walking before you know it.

    Love you all!
