Another Trip to Los Angeles

We got up early, very early this morning and headed down south for Noah's eye procedure. We arrived at Children's Hospital Los Angeles at 5:45 a.m. and Noah was prepped for the procedure. He was NOT happy with his choice of hospital gown...it was way too big and had funny ties on the back.
The nurses took Noah back to the operating room and Dr. Song hooked electrodes to his head while lights flashed over his right eye. Dr. Song was able to determine that Noah's right eye is non-functioning. The doctor will be consulting plastic surgeons over the next few weeks to make a decision about the next course of action. We were relieved to learn, however, that Noah's left eye is doing well. Dr. Song has advised us to slowly discontinue the use of his eye drops - what a joy.
When Noah was in recovery, Kc and I were allowed to see him. He was quite sleepy but VERY happy to see us. After about an hour of waking up we were allowed to leave. We met up with my dear friend Robyn (of Team Noah shirt fame) and had a wonderful lunch full of great conversation. It was the fuel we needed for the long trip home.

    It's so good to see that you are all home safe and sound! Now, Noah, you can sleep in comfy P.J.s that fit :-) We are full of praises for the good news about Noah's left eye and will be praying for wisdom for the doctors concerning Noah's right eye. Go Team Noah!!

  3. There's a fortune to be made by the person who designs a comfortable, efficient, (dare I add "flattering" ) gown! Such good news about your left eye! Way to go, kiddo!

  5. and right eye, too! Now just cosmetic surgery, and not the concern of recovering eyesight from the right. The body God creates for each of us is amazing! I'm sure Noah is equipped to be independent and well-functioning as he continues to grow strong under God's sustaining power! Any more trips to LA or are you guys able to stay home for a while? I'd imagine some sort of "regular routine" sounds dreamy right about now?
