To All of My Wonderful Family and Friends...

I haven't been keeping up on the blog very well lately. I apologize for that. This has been a crazy past couple of weeks and does not seem to be over yet. A couple of weeks ago, I went in for my yearly eye exam. Much to my surprise it came up abnormal. My eye doctor didn't think it was serious, but just wanted to be sure so he scheduled me to go up to a specialty clinic in Tucson.

I wasn't supposed to go up for a couple of weeks, but started having some abnormal symptoms in my right eye and a lot of pressure in my head on the right side. I called and they moved up my appointment immediately. They .did some tests and basically confirmed what the other eye doctor had said. Plus, they discovered that I am experiencing some peripheral vision loss in my right eye. They want to send me to get a brain scan next week. I don't know the exact date yet. They are supposed to call me. I already called them today to bug them about it. I do not want to waste time. This is a really scary thing for not just me, but my whole family.

I did get a blessing from Jon and it said that as long as I act on it and don't delay, I will be able to overcome whatever it is. I have been trying set my own anxieties aside and just go for it. I know Heavenly Father is helping me. Even though this is the biggest trial I have ever had to face in my life, I have faith that I can get through this. I hope you all will keep me and my family in your prayers.

I will keep everyone posted whenever I get more information.

I hope things go well for you. I also hope its not something like glacoma, which effects the eyes that is one thing my grandmother had later in her life. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Much love
