Billy Nelson is doing better every day and we are patiently waiting still on his kidney and after seeing the doctor today he said it definitely will be waking up & we just have to wait until it does! That was really good news we thought. No needle biopsy today not really sure why I thought there was going to be but there wasn’t. We will be doing an ultrasound on Monday but I don’t think much concern from the doctors on that either. Just something they do after this length of time.

I am in my last semester of college before getting my bachelor’s, and I’m applying for a law enforcement job which requires me to have good vision. When I was a medic in the Army, I received a surgery which corrected my right vision, but damaged my left eye, leading to having a cataract. I’m working through VA healthcare, which tends to be slow. Please pray that the Lord will accelerate each appointment. Pray that I will get the ophthalmologist appointment very soon, and then get the cataract surgery appointment set up back to back. I need everything to happen quickly, so it doesn’t jam up the employment application process. Also, please pray for the highest quality cataract surgery, and pray that they insert the highest quality lens into my eye, so that I will have perfect vision, far and near.
