    As some of you may know, I have been absent from the boards for quite awhile. I have shared part of that reason on other posts (part of the bargining committee for our union) but the real reason is a serious medical crisis my youngest daughter is facing.

    Without going into a lot of detail, she is facing 3 procedures this summer to try to correct a serious malformation in her brain. These procedures are neccessary to stop blood flow to the malformation. She has the potential to partially lose her eyesight. Eventually she will need surgery to remove the malformation.

    We would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

    Oh no I am so sorry to hear that, INteacher. You are in my prayers! If your daughter does end up losing some or all of her eyesight, please let me know. I will be happy to point you in the right direction in terms of how to deal with vision loss. Again my prayers and I hope that her procedures go well!

    INteacher, hang in there, this will pass and I'm speaking from the point of view of someone who's been there. My daughter had to have 4 heart procedures spanning over 3 years. She became anorexic because of meds. She's 5'6" and got down to 96 lbs., I was afraid she was going to die. We made a lot of trips to the ER because she having life-threatening panic attacks. It was 3 years of hell. Finally, and in God's time, she's happily married and gave birth to a precious baby boy. A year ago I would never have believed her life would be so complete. She's found a thankful place for her trials and she says she's a much stronger and better person because of them.

    Hold on to your precious daughter, pray with her, and we'll all pray for her and you, too.

    I pray that you will all be comforted knowing that God works through us. I pray for the doctors who will operate on her and everyone who will take care of her. Take care of yourself so you can help her through this time.
