Greetings and I hope that your are all doing well. I write this email to give you some more information on Goodwin. This afternoon (your alls evening) we went back to the hospital for the doctors to perform the same procedure on Goodwin’s left eye.
I am happy to inform you that the procedure was successful and Goodwin does not seem to be in any pain at all. This means that we have now completed the C3R (Cross-Linking) procedure.Tomorrow morning, we will go back to the hospital for a review of both the right and left eyes.
On Saturday March 15, 2014, the doctors that performed the C3R procedure on Goodwin, Dr. Surbhi Suden the doctor that recommended Sharp Eye Hospital and ourselves will meet to review what has been done and to have a discussion while we wait for the Corneas to settle in.
For some of you who may not be familiar with Cross-Linking, it is a process where protein is added on the Cornea to strengthen the Cornea so the it maitains it oval shap instead of a conical shape like was the case in Goodwin’s case. The doctors are suprised that his eyes have responded so well that they have been able to do the Cross-Linking procedure on both eyes within three days. They have told us that in most cases, they have had to wait for a week or ten days to be able to carry out this procedure in both eyes of some patients.
We continue to thank God for your prayers and financial supprt that you have given us to be able to bring Goodwin here for treatment. Last night as Ireen and I were prepairing to go to bed, I prayed to God and asked the question,” What shall I give in return for what He and your all have done for Ireen and I?
