From Shanghai to Hong Kong and back again several times (once by train!) and then that little stop over in hospital and now, the latest stop on our magical mystery medical tour is London, England. I'm here with Lyra for the next several weeks as we try to get a handle on her health issues. Right now we're focusing on her glaucoma. We saw a specialist who is much more hopeful about her eyes than any we've seen before. He's going to preform a surgery using a newer technique that has much better outcomes. We're waiting to get the all clear from a pediatrician making sure that Lyra is fit for surgery, and then next week, or possibly the week after she'll undergo the procedure.
It's been really difficult being away from my big kids, but after meeting our London doctor, I'm absolutely certain that this was the best thing we could do. Lyra will get a real fighting chance to keep her vision, and I'm so beyond thankful that we are able to do this for our girl. #lyrambird
