Eye Surgery Update 6/14/13

One more part of Jordan's Journey started today and I can sum it up in one word....GREAT!!!  Of course the trip there was a little rushed because they called us to come in 1hr early. So coordinating Jordan's posse that goes to all surgery's was CRAZY!  LOL  The surgery today moved 2 eye muscles to the side to help pull Jordan's left eye to be straight. She also has a permanent stitch in those muscles to help pull them tighter to hold that eye straight. Dr. Bradley chose not to do the Botox injection due possibly causing "too much" of a correction this time that could not be corrected later on.  The procedure only took 1 1/2 hours & Jordan did wonderful! She will have some bloody drainage for the next few days and will have lots of irritation from the 8 stitches in her eye...OUCH!  Dr. Bradley was very pleased with the immediate results and said in 2 wks we would have a good idea of what today's result one be and that changes could continue for 3 months.  So, if a second surgery is needed it would not occur until September or later. Below I have posted a picture of before & after today's surgery.  The pictures show what a great success today was & I am sorry if the after picture makes anyone squeamish.  
Overall today was a complete success & we have the man upstairs to thank for that!  We have been blessed with wonderful doctor's and I can't thank them enough for all they have done for Jordan!  Thanks for all the support & prayers for Jordan & our family.........PRAY FOR JORDAN

  2. I am getting older every day and in this age surgery is not possible and suitable for me. I doesn’t want to be a burden on my family. So, I’ve taken a decision to try sleepSEE. Hope, it will work effectively. Best alternative vision correction

  3. Plastic surgery won't enhance the spirit, regardless of how much cash one spends. Nonetheless, with a little work done via prepared experts, those windows into your spirit can be cleaned, cleaned, and reestablished to give the general population you experience a look into the magnificence you know lies profound inside you.Eye Lid Tightening
