Last week Baby John Lester along with his whole family blessed the Abundant staff with a Thanksgiving meal. It was their way to thank us and God for the successful glaucoma operation.
As you can see in the pictures, the road to healing will be a long one with many follow-up check-ups in Manila and possibly another procedure. As compared to the last picture I posted of John Lester his eye looks much bigger – but that was because from the time that was taken until he could actually have the procedure his eye grew so much that he couldn’t even close his eyelid around it anymore.
The operation improved his quality of life so much that he actually smiles and laughs now!! Before he would only sleep and cry because of the pain. The operation also saved his other eye which would have lost it’s sight as well if the operation hadn’t been done. I keep praying for a complete healing for John Lester but for now he is doing really well and enjoying life.
