So Sad

Olivia is doing better today and is sort of acting like herself again. . .minus the smiles. Poor thing just seems so very sad. I can't tell you how many times my heart has broken. Olivia woke me up about every hour with crying and moaning. She still needs constant attention and reassurance from us. Thankfully, Ryan went ahead and took another day off work to help us out and because he didn't sleep all that well either. He is also struggling with a sore throat.

We are really hoping this surgery is successful. Because her eyes were not moving well together, it affected her depth perception. We are hoping that by correcting it, we will see an increase in her reaching for objects and a positive effect on her development overall. Please continue to pray for her.

Wow! Her eyes look so much better, but I know that continued prayers are always wanted. Her pictures make me want to cry. She's not her normal spunky self. :(
I miss it. I hope she's back to her young self soon.
