My general philosophy about Eli's blog is not to post when I'm feeling defeated. Today, I write to you in my despair. Elijah's optometrist told us that he sees signs of retinitis-pigmentosa in his eyes. RP runs in my family. My kids have a 50/50 chance of inheritance. I was sure Eli wouldn’t have to deal with that too. RP can cause blindness in men. I know that the concept of fair really is a figment of our imagination. Life is not fair. Should Eli really have to deal with anything more?
DON'T TELL MY GRANDMOTHER, please. I've decided that I'd prefer she not know. So, blog world, let's keep this to ourselves.
I have to put on a really brave face tonight as Sophia is having 13 of her closest friends over for her sleep over birthday party. I’d prefer to go hide and cry.
Please pray that Dr. Groves was wrong. Pray that Eli doesn’t have RP. That is my fervent prayer and request of you, my friends.
Thanks for going through this with us....the ups and the downs....there are plenty of both. We trust in our Lord to bring us through this, too.
