Haley had her eye surgery today by Dr. Coats. He's a fantastic doctor and does a great job with laser surgery. Haley's surgery went "smooth" according to Dr. Coats. He will check back in a week to see exactly how well it went. We are hoping for the very best for her eyes. Rachel had her first eye exam since her eye surgery last week, and Dr. Coats said it looked really good. He said usually if the eyes start to do better after the surgery it will continue to improve. He said almost always, but there are a few instances that proved untrue. So we were encouraged by that news. Dr. Coats will exam both girls eyes in a week to see how they are doing. He will do weekly eye exams at first to make sure they are OK. Then He will decided how often to check them if they are doing well. So the big news of the day is Haley's surgery and Rachel's eye exam and both seemed to go very well according to the doctor. We are grateful for the many prayers by so many people. We really appreciate them and we do know that they are heard and answered.
