The last couple of days the girls have had some ups and downs. Haley had to go back on the nasal cannula for a little bit of extra oxygen. Haley's abdomen also got really distended. She had some x-rays to determine the cause and the x-rays showed a lot of gas/air in her intestines. The doctor was concerned that she had another obstruction. Dr. Bloss (surgeon) looked at the x-rays as well and he said that there was some swelling where he re-connected her bowels and that swelling was preventing the air from moving through the intestines. Today her abdomen looked better and she was more comfortable. We were pleased with that. We are also happy to announce that she pooped! This means things are starting to move along in her bowels. Haley also had a follow up eye exam this evening and unfortunately the Doctor is concerned about her right eye and there fore she will have to go under general anesthesia again for a more in depth look into her right eye. She will also most likely have some surgery done on that eye, but we will see what tomorrow brings. We pray that her right eye will be ok and she will be able to have some vision. I feel terrible that she has to go through another surgery and especially on Christmas eve. Rachel had her gastric emptying scan this afternoon. We don't have the results of this scan yet, but Rachel tolerated the procedure well. Rachel had her follow up eye exam on Tuesday and her eyes are doing well. She now doesn't have to have another exam for a month. We continue to trust in the Lord for our two little girls. We know that He has taken care of them, and will continue to. We hope more than anything that Haley will have some sight, but if not we will except what happens and move forward in life. We know with surety God can perform miracles, our two beautiful little girls are living proof of that. The Lord can heal Haley's eyes if He sees that that is what is best for her. We only can see a piece of the picture but God sees the whole picture. He will do what is best for Haley, there is no question in my mind that He will. We are trying to except his will with out questioning or resistance. Thanks be to God for all that he has done for Rachel, Haley, Thomas and I. We truly have been blessed. We owe all that we have to our Heavenly Father, for through him and our Savior all things are possible.
