Last week, during the little bird’s dressing change the ophthalmologist/eye surgeon came to examine the remaining small opening in her skin graft, just under her eye. He believes that rather than try to close this area with a stitch, it should be left to close on its own, thereby decreasing the scar tissue formation and the pull on the lower eyelid.
In addition, he thinks that her cornea is out of danger. While her eye still does not fully close, the lid does cover the cornea and he states that the small cloudy spot currently present is old, and not actively threatening her vision.
This week I will attempt to speak with Aissa’s medical team to decide when we might return to Cameroon. We may need to make arrangements to continue wound care after arriving home, please pray that we have God’s wisdom.
