Many Thanks

Thank you to everyone who commented and who have been and who are continuing to pray for Wes. We still have a long way to go to get him better. If anyone likes specifics to pray about, we are asking that you pray for Wes' right eye. He has a form of Ankylosing Spondilitis. I know that is a long word but what it boils down to is an auto-immune disease that can manifest itself and flair up in other parts of your body. Right now it is in Wes' right eye. It has caused Iritis (yes all these big words) - which is severe inflamation in the eye. People have lost their vision from this disease. He has been battling this for about 3 weeks now. The doctors are keeping it dialted and he is using drops several times a day. The inflamation has caused a cataract type plaque to form on his lens which means the only to correct his vision will be through sugery. He is very frustrated because he cannot see out of that eye and it is very sensitive to the light. We do go back to the specialist this Friday, we are praying for great news!
Sorry for the medical run-down of Wes, but I am sure you will pray specifically for the eye!
Thanks to everyone! We love all of you! We pray many blessings come your way!

Hey girl,
Wow! So sorry to hear that you and Wes are going through this. I am definitely prayer for you. I will put you and Wes on the prayer list in our Sunday School class and I will tell mom and dad to do the same back at home. Love you and let me know if there is anything else Scott and I can do.

Sorry to hear about all this Meg. I am sure this is tough. We are saying lots of prayers. I will get you both on the prayer list at my church, and have Mom get you on their prayer chain for the Orlando area. I love you and if you need to talk just give me a call. Miss you!
