Eye Clinic and Celebration Dinner

Steven has really droopy eyes, with a pronounced droop on the left side. The droopiness has been getting increasingly worse over time.

During his opthalmologist visit, they noted a decrease in his peripheral vision on the visual field exam. The doctor who saw him on Tuesday recommended we see the oculoplastic surgeon who would be in the eye clinic on Thursday.

So we rescheduled our return flight from Wednesday to Thursday so we could see the eye surgeon. The tentative plan was for him to examine Steven, then do the surgery when we return for our August visit.

The surgeon determined that fixing Steven's droopy eyelid would be more involved than a single outpatient procedure, so we will pursue treatment in San Diego and hope that we can get our insurance to cover it.

We celebrated the clear MRI by taking the trolley downtown and eating some very excellent barbeque at Rendezvous.

After dinner we went up to the top of the Peabody Hotel and enjoyed the nighttime view.

We then sought out our duck friends in their Duck Palace on the hotel roof.

We are ever so grateful to be home again with good scans.

And many thanks to all of you who think of and pray for us-- we appreciate it more than we can show.
