Let's see :)

One last cross eyed shot :)

After having his happy juice and getting ready to be carried into surgery

Little Eliseo with the big blue eyes :)

Eliseo's surgery went just wonderfully! We got to the hospital at 6 am and were home by noon. He had a bit of a time coming out of the anesthesia, but other than being very tired and a bit more fussy than usual, he did great once we got home.
And his eyes are so straight! It looks so different to me and honestly, I even kind of miss his sweet cross eyed look, but we are just so happy that all went so well, and I am looking forward to seeing the doctor tomorrow to "see" how everything "looks". :) Today, the whites of the corners of his eyes are all red and he has some red tears, but is acting like nothing ever happened.
I don't have internet at the house where I'm staying, and so I couldn't update yesterday. But know we appreciate all your prayers for us so much. I wasn't a bit nervous until we actually got into his room and they gave him the "happy juice", but my father in law put his hands on him and prayed over him and what a peace there is to give our every care to the One who cares like none other and how wonderful to have Him fill our hearts with the peace only He can give.
Pray for our trip home Friday. Thank you again for all your suggestions! At least now I can say that he just had eye surgery...maybe I'll get more sympathy? :) Lord willing, Friday afternoon, I'll be right back where I belong :)


  1. Just look at that beautiful boy. Amazing what can be done.

  2. What a beautiful little one you have- both before and after! I wonder what he is seeing differently now? I'll be thinking of you on your way home and wish you an easy trip. It could happen :)

  9. I love all the pictures! It was odd for me too when Grace had her eyes done. You get so use to seeing them and feeling for them. I'm so glad his recovery is going well. Aren't those red tear drops kinda gross :-p

    I'll be praying for you return flight home~


  10. Wow, what a difference! Hope your trip home is less eventful. :)

  11. Praise the Lord all went well! He does look very handsome...but he looked so sweet before, too!
    Praying that your trip home will go smoothly. I am hoping that Eliseo will be more accustomed to strangers by then. :)

  12. I almost cried when I saw his "after" picture. So beautiful. He was adorable before . . . and now to see his eyes fixed . . . wow. I am thanking God for a successful surgery. I pray that all goes well at his follow-up appointment and for your travel home.

  20. Our family has been praying for Eliseo's surgery. I was so pleased to be able to share the "After" photo with my children. They were so happy to see his eyes so straight and so blue!!! (and their prayers answered).

  21. Oh, he was adorable before, but he is adorable now too -- and I think he looks so much like his Daddy now! Very cool. I'm so glad it all went well! It is difficult to hand over a little one to the surgeon. I've done it twice, but both times, everything went great. Hooray for skillful and caring doctors and nurses!

  22. Jaynee, He looks so much like his daddy!!! Praying that your trip home is much easier! So glad to hear that he is doing well!

  24. Hi Jaynee,

    I saw you and your little guy visiting the Maxwells. They posted a photo of that. You are amazing to fit that in your busy schedule. Did you get to shop for the US treats for your family?


  25. Easily I acquiesce in but I contemplate the post should prepare more info then it has.
