*First off, thank you katie for the guest blogging and loving my kiddos!
*Betsy’s surgery did go well. Now that most of the stitches are out, she is opening her eye wider. We are still playing a waiting game to see if the pressure in her eye will hold. If the eye pressure stabilizes, the next step is a cornea transplant.

*If the eye pressure drops, the eye itself will shrink causing severe pain. If the dr’s determine that she has pain, they will promptly remove the entire eye and put in a prosthetic eye.

*But no matter what happens with the eye pressure, Betsy will have another surgery in a couple of weeks to put spacers in her eye. This will ensure that the bones around her left eye will grow evenly with the right, making sure her face will be asymmetrical.

* in all honesty, everything is overwhelming. I have been trying to keep it in perspective, but still have major bouts of guilt and woes. This is when God makes me laugh....A nurse in the hallway (not our nurse) commented on betsy’s cute eye patch. then stated “there’s not really anything wrong with her eye, is there?” uhhh..excuse me? Do you seriously think we got tired of hairband accessories and decided to branch out to eye patches? YIkes.
*Betsy also continues to add to her cute sunglasses collection
thanks for the shades, aunt katie! (betsy's duck face)

*THANK YOU for all your prayers for betsy. I hope that you will continue to pray for her eye pressure to not drop...and that her momma will stop buying her sunglasses :)
