Ollie had his surgery , having a shunt put into his brain, and into his tummy to drain the fluid that his first surgery didn't correct. He will have this permanantly, and baring no complications for plugging up with fluids, or other things, he can do whatever he is able given his abilitiies with being sightless.

He tolerated the surgery ok, but they had to medicate him before he was taken to recovery for some reason, adding to the worry of those of us who were in the waiting room.. Finally got the news he was ok, and we would be able to see him later in the afternoon.. phew, was that a scary wait not knowing..

Anyway, very draining few days, but did want to update as I know many of Ollie's Angels here have asked how he is doing .. here are 2 photos of him once he was in his own room yesterday(Friday).. Happily drinking his water at this time of photo, though he is having a hard time holding down formula, or any food.. Post op meds are making him struggle with keeping anything down right now..

    So glad to hear the surgery went well. It must have been so frightening waiting to hear that he is okay. Hugs to you and to our boy!

    How awful for this little one to have to go through so much at a young age, praying for speedy recovery! God Bless Donna

    Reading about Ollie just breaks my heart and brings tears to my eyes as I try to write you. We have a 3 mo old in the swing and when I think it could be him it is frightening. Ollie is so beautiful and lays there like he is in the best of health. You say he is sightless so what can I say other than he is in God's hands and this too will work out. I hope you will include me among his angels as I will include him and his moma in my praysers.

    Little Ollie has been in my heart and prayers so much recently. I even find myself telling my family and friends all about him and what a wonderful little man he is turning out to be. I found myself over the holidays actually saying I hope little man and his family are having a good holiday season. I truly do care about him as if he was one of my grandchildren, Here is hoping all is going well with the whole family and may this new year bring more mericals to his life

    Thank you, Gayle.. I haven't been able to see him all this week as I have a HORRIBLE case of bronchitis, with broken rib from coughing . Hard to take breaths, which is not good for me due to needing that for my asthma. I am having Ollie withdrawls for sure..

    Ouch!!!! I hope you get to feeling better really soon. I am still coughing from when I got sick on the first of November. Started with a Flu then turned into Bronchitis, now just a cough occasionally (couple times a day and night) But I never broke a rib from it!!!!!
    I have a new granddaughter. Naomi Grace is such a beautiful little girl. It is wonderful that she lives here in town and I can see her quite often (almost daily!!!) Have you been able to get a sewing machine yet? I have a box I am putting together for you!!!

    Gayle, I have thought about you lately, and wondered how you are.. I am still struggling with this crud, but now, on top of the other stuff, have a case of shingles on the same side as the hurting ribs..Talk about not feeling good.. its me.

    I am borrowing a machine for a week or two more while my friend is gone. So the answer is yes, and no.. Not mine but at least I can sew for a little while..

    I am so excited for your newest grandaughter. What a beuaituful name - so. so special.. Hope to see her photo sometime! Ollie is doing good from all reports. I still cant see him , especially now with the shingles. But he is making strides in his development, so thats the best news..

    Thank you for seeing how we are doing. I am going on to bed now, its been a long day, and just took my last meds for the night for the breathing..
