Quick Prayer, Please

Just a quick post to ask for some quick prayer. Jon's eye has gotten progressively worse as time has gone on and today the pain level has hit an all time high. We have been referred to a neuro-opthemologist, but it will take a few days for that referral to go through. Please pray for his pain in the meantime. He does ok, and then he hits a "wall" and he can't function. It's heartbreaking. Oh, and while you're at it, pray that neuro-opthemology falls under medical insurance and not optical. Because, well, we've never needed optical so we eliminated it from our plan last year. ;) Thanks friends...


  1. Deanna, as Jon's brain heals it is normal for him to experience some pain. You have to think about the fact that where the tumor in Jon's brain once was there is something that has to fill the space where the tumor once was. This is most likely air or fluid. Either one could be causing the pain and the issues with his eye. Hang in there. I've had the pleasure of working with some of the best Neurosurgeons in the world. The ones I worked with specialized in Spine, but I also had a best friend who had an arachnoid cyst the size of a fist in her brain. She came through the surgery and had the same type of set back later as air and the CF fluid filled the empty space. She is doing beautifully now. I have every confidence that Jon will do the same. We have a God that is sovereign. No matter what all will be perfect. I will continue to pray for an ease to the pain and I'm grateful you are living all of this out loud to God's glory.
