He had his first eye exam today and it went OK. He's not in the "normal" range, but they're going to keep doing the tests frequently to watch his progress. They are checking to see if the blood vessels in his eyes have attached all the way through. His haven't yet, they're still immature. We'll keep praying for them to grow and mature.
They did another spinal tap thing and didn't get much fluid. They were hoping to get more, but like I said last night, this process will take at least a week or two. We are praying that GOD will heal this and dissolve that clot and allow this to fix itself. We ask that you all pray that same prayer. Tonight with our youth group we talked about the story in Acts of GOD delivering Peter from jail by sending the angel and breaking the chains that were holding him down. It mentioned how while he was in jail "the church was earnestly praying to GOD for him". And while they were praying, Peter came to them to tell them he was out of jail and tell them how GOD saved him. I loved that story tonight because it reminded me of our situation and how we have so many people praying earnestly to GOD for Kanyon. It reminds us of the hope of deliverance from this and the confidence that GOD can do it. Thank you for praying for all of these little battles we face daily as well as the situation as a whole. We can't wait to come to you and show you our healthy boy and tell people how GOD saved him!
I have decided to post some pictures! I am still waiting on the ones of Kory holding him..the hospital has to email them to me. But I had some others I thought I would share. Enjoy!
Here he is in his big boy bed. The fun nurses hung his little turtle up in there like a mobile!
Precious little face!
This is one of his nurses Melissa. We're putting him back in his bed after being held. You have to look at his mouth..he's in the middle of a huge yawn!! If I was Rachel I would know how to zoom this in to see his mouth better, but you'll just have to get a magnifying glass out!
I think this might be a wink...maybe for some of his future girlfriends...like Reese and Ava who are only days younger than him! I've told him about these pretty girls, so he wanted me to send this wink their way!
