Overdue update!

I can't believe that it has almost been a month since I have updated the blog :(  I am so sorry!  Well it has a been busy so let me get to things!

We have seen 2 other eye MD's since the last update. Dr. Bradley & Dr. Timmoney. I must say we fell in love with these two right from the beginning also!  I can't say we love the wait to see them but it is worth it!  LOL  Dr. Bradley would be the MD operating on the actual eye muscle if we need to do that in the future.  Dr. Timmoney would be the MD operating on the eye to help it close properly.  Both were please with her eye health and are going to just follow her for now. YEAH!  Jordan does have to use eye drops frequently and she has to patch her left eye at night to protect it.  Not bad news from either of them & Jordan was just glad that there is NO surgery for now!
Therapy seems to be going well and Jordan loves the CLIMB program.  I think it helps her in so many ways and she looks forward to going!  Vision therapy has begun and she is diligently doing her eye exercises every day!  I must say that it has only been 3 weeks but I can already see some improvement when I help her do her eye stretches! YEAH!  Her resilience and strength continue to amaze me! 
The worst thing that has happened since my last post was the death of Jordan's 17yr old cat Oliver :(  This was her baby and was a huge loss after all that she has been through.
As always we thank you for the thoughts/prayers for Jordan & our family!  PRAY FOR JORDAN!


  1. Hello Jordan,I'm glad things are going in the right direction. We've been thinking about you and hoping when news came it would be good. Sorry to hear about the kitty. Our 2 boys are getting up there and we know it won't be long for them but they are still kicking for now. Take Care, You, Taylor and your Mom, along with Derrick and Trevor are in our prayers. Love, Uncle Jack and Mary Ann
