Prayer and Oh So Much Fun!


Okay, I'll start out with the not-so-good news.... Yesterday I took Wilson (along with Henderson and Emma Claire) to his eye appointment. You see, Emma Claire's diagnosis with Amblyopia (lazy eye) came about by sheer accident (or God's providence) when I poked her in the eye one night. Wilson, on the other hand, has an eye that "wanders" when he looks at things at a distance. This was his second appointment after the first one where the doc said we would just wait and see. Well, the news we got yesterday was to come back and see his partner to evaluate for surgery...SURGERY????? On my just turned 2 year old, 21 pound, fiesty red head's EYES???? I thought, maybe an eye patch, maybe glasses (though he would never keep them on), but SURGERY??? We go back for the evaluation on his eye muscles Wed. Oct 22, so please keep him in your prayers....





NOW for the GREAT news!!!!! Tomorrow I will be going with....

I am headed out too. Can't wait! Loved how you did this post. So creative.!!!! Have a wonderful trip! Let u know more on the eye!

hey girl - I am sorry to hear about your babies eye...but I would be wary about doctors recommending surgery. Alot of different healthcare pros make judgements to encourage invasive action for the sole purpose of making money. Make sure you get a 2nd and 3rd opinion. GL and I will pray for you guys!

I am so SO happy for you. Can you take a couple of babysitters :)?? I'm just teasing...sort of.

I am saying a prayer right now about the SURGERY. That's a really scary word when you're talking about a 2 year old!

Hey! I have seen your blog before too and I have no idea how I came across it either. Love reading about your sweet children and will be praying for the eye situation. We do have two little ones but are stopping there (though in some clothes I look like I am having twins--hahahha). Love the Alabama smcoked as we wear Southern Miss smocked every weekend!
Have a great day!
