Logan's issues


So we found out about 3 weeks ago that Logan has congenital glaucoma (it is an eye disease). We thought that glaucoma only happened to old people, but we were obviously wrong. Logan had his first surgery on Nov 6th. That surgery didn't work (sucess rate of this type of surgery is only 50%) the way the doctor hoped it would so he had surgery again on Friday 21st. Since we didn't get picture the first time around we made sure we got it this time. He is a bit cranky about the whole thing, but the doctor says he seems to be doing fine. He will have to have very regular checkups and maybe more surgery to make sure he keeps his eyesight. We are blessed to have caught it early. If we would have been a bit later there is a good chance he could have gone blind.
