Bella's eye appointment.....



As some of you know from seeing her pictures, She has wondering eyes.....
She had a Doctors appointment yesterday at Nemours in Jacksonville, They are supposed to be one of the best places for Children here in the south. Even so it was not good news on her eyes . They are 95 % sure they will do surgery. They are doing a MRI on her entire brain next month to see why her muscles in her eyes didn't grow. Also, they said that usually its only in one eye, but Bella has it in both eyes. They told My Daughter that is happens primarily in retardation(sorry if that word hurts anyone ) BUT since Bella has no tests results that indicate that, They don't feel thats what caused it, but the Doctor also said that at some point she may have some handicaps that develop later, not now....
Either way Jessica had to sign paperwork for the MRI because they have to sedate her for that. Shes also looking at surgery on both eyes and soon. They say that it will not get better on its own so its a necessity. They did give them some sporty little patches to put on her left eye, The one with the worst laziness. She looks cute with the patch and is only a little irritated by them. Bella is a trooper and she handles things pretty well for almost 7 months....
As you can imagine we are ALL devastated by this! I will keep you all updated with this, as I don't think I can go without talking about it. Our Littlest member of the clan is precious to each and everyone of us and we will do whatever it takes to give her a blessed and safe life....
Until next time,
Peace!

Oh Judy hun...this has been such a bad year for your family and mine hasn't it? Please know you,Bella, and all of your family are always in my thoughts and prayers...and as a step-mother to 2 children who suffer from mental retardation...I am not in the least offended...because Mark who only has an IQ of about 70 somethiing is the greatest joy in our life...he is always happy and always making you laugh...sometimes I think he is the blessed one...he doesn't have a worry in the world. As for me Pamela had to have our precious Misty put down this morning...we have all been crying all day...she can't have children and Misty was her child to her....and, Bill is in Kuwait...so it's just been tough for both of us this year hasn't it? I posted a picture of Misty...I do so hope you will drop by and see her and listen to her song....I have prayed for Bella and I know God will bless you. Love you~Jackie
