One step back but hopefully more than 100 forward


Since it had been less than a week at St. Luke's for Andrea's left eye cataract surgery, she had to bandage up her left eye. Then after surgery for her right eye Tuesday, she was a 'sight to be seen'! Everything is blurry for her now since it took the doctor nearly 2 hours to peel off scar tissue and put in a steroid injection to try to minimize swelling that has persisted for a year. He said it would be a week for the steroid to absorb and even longer for the retina to settle down. Nonetheless, we are prayful and hopeful. We take tasks day by day, and Andrea has a great attitude attempting to deal with everything. It is a great comfort to know you are praying. Thank you!
She sees the doctor Monday for an interim assessment.

Dear Andrea, you have come so far. There are bound to be a few set backs and frustrations, but you have shown amazing grace under all the circumstances that have come your way. You are a very strong young lady and you are constantly proving how strong you are time and again. We keep you in our prayers always.
