Return to Rochester


Those of you who have read my blog for awhile, are familiar with the above photograph.
I originally posted it here, when I first learned of serious problems with my vision, and later in several follow-up posts.

Well, here it is again.

My husband and I will be returning to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota this week.
Recently, periods of double vision have been creeping back.

While not as severe as previously, it is enough to be bothersome.
Before it worsens, we are visiting my wonderful surgeon to seek his opinion and advice.

We were relieved that Minnesota was experiencing a mild winter this year.
As usual, just as we are to arrive, winter storms and winds are beginning to howl!
Coats, sweaters, gloves and boots are now packed.

Once again, my prayer is to gracefully accept any limitations and the path my life follows. 
Even with wonky eyes, I will be OK!
I truly believe that.

I hope you receive great news from the doctors. I will be thinking of you this week while I complete a few dresses for Harper-- look for a new order from me when you get home!

I have to say, as soon as I saw that photo come up on my blog roll, Jan, my heart sank. I'm sorry to hear that your vision isn't improving & may even be worsening.

You pray for acceptance...I'll pray for guidance... of the doctors & nurses who will care for you.

Sending knee mails & safe traveling mercies!
Hugs,
Rett (who gave up BOTH Diet Coke AND candy/sweets for Lent!!) I loved your Ash Wed. post.

Jan, I know so well how things go up and down. I'm looking at my 1 year checkup for the colon cancer and can only pray that God blesses me again. Only prayers will work. I'm praying.
