Sunday, July 13, 2008 - Update

I hope you all had a great weekend.

I was able to spend time with all of my grandparents.

We had family pictures and I smiled really big.

And, tomorrow is my Aunt Shelley's birthday. Happy Birthday!
My family has a lot of summer birthdays.

Here I am with my mom and dad. I love when we all spend time together.
From Shea's post, I thought I would post a little update on Olivia's eyes. She goes back into the eye doctor on the 22nd and we continue to patch her for 4 hours each day. She is still crossing her eyes, but we're seeing some improvement. The BIG news is. . .we think that, after 10 1/2 months, her tear ducts may have opened! For many babies, they do open on their own, but all of her doctors have said that hers most likely would not. We have had to wipe her eyes at least 5-10 times every day to keep them from matting shut. We have not, however, had to clean them for the last three days and they've been amazingly clear. We are not quite ready to call it a victory yet, but if they did indeed open on their own. . .she would not need surgery to open them. That would be an amazing blessing and one we will continue praying for!!

Olivia looks so happy that her parents are down on the floor getting "tummy time" with her. That is a really good family picture! Probably just as good as the professional ones! Can't wait to see those for sure.

Good news about the tear ducts. I will be keeping my fingers crossed that they did open. That's amazing.
