Not the News we'd hope for...

Wayne's eye is not doing as well as expected.  The doctor saw scar tissue on the nerves, which cannot be repaired.  He said he was very disappointed to see that today.  It was not from the first surgery, it was from the accident. There is inflammation going on and he has to start taking the steroidal eye drops again (which dialate his eyes, so he will have to wear his eye patch more/almost always).  The drops cause great sensitivity to light.  He is still having sensitivity to noise too? Which doesn't help when you have 3 very LOUD children, that don't quiet down when asked.  The doctor wants us to wait...Our next check up will be in about 2 months.  He also wants us to try corrective lenses (glasses), but maybe 4-6 months down the road.  The sight has not improved.  It has black spots, which they thing from the OCT scan today, is from the scar tissue.  The glasses are the last attempt at more vision, but we have to wait until it stabilizes. 

I ask you to continue to pray for our family, however God and you see fit.
