Almost two years ago Bob woke up pretty much blind. With no medical insurance and losing his job with little hope of finding a new one due to his eye problems the last two years have not always been easy. We have continued to believe that it’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters and have tried to look on the positive side of things.
Once Bob qualified for Medicare in November doctors stopped not being interested because it was “just his eyes” and a whirlwind of referrals and diagnoses began. Just before Christmas we were told he had glaucoma, then a week later a pituitary tumor. Three doctors now agree that there is a pituitary tumor. Whether any of the other things we were told were accurate, we have no way of knowing. The large tumor is pressing on the optic chiasma presumably causing the vision problems. We are being given no options but surgery and are being pressured to have this done right away. This is a serious surgery with serious risks.
So let’s just say we need your prayers. A church prayer chain that reached around the world saved my life years ago as doctors were encouraging my family to end life support, so I know the power of prayer. Please join me in prayer and if anyone knows of alternative treatments for this type of tumor please let us know. You may use the contact form on the About page to contact us.
