My mom had a stroke in her eye and has some permanent vision loss now in her left eye. We are all worried sick about her.
She thought that she had a migraine and that the migraine was affecting her vision. She was planning on just staying in bed all day. It just so happened that my brother (an emergency room doctor) was in town for the day and when he saw her he knew that it was something more serious than a migraine and got her in right away. They are doing a bunch of tests now to figure out what caused this.
She could really use your prayers right about now. She is my very best friend and I just want her to be feeling good and for her health problems to be solved. Every second of my mom’s life is dedicated to helping everyone around her and doing anything she can to make us all happy… she is by far the best person I know.
I’m sure she would love some virtual hugs today and positive thoughts sent her way.
Thanks guys and I hope you have a great Thursday.
My thoughts and prayers are with your beloved mama. May God wrap his healing arms around her and your whole family.

Huge prayers for your mom.
My 95 year old grandfather had a stroke this week too…he has lost vision in the top half of each eye – it’s called “curtain vision”. They have put him on powerful blood thinners and hope that some (or all) of his vision will return.
Big prayers for them both.
Praying for your mom. My mom had the same thing happen. She had to get several eye injections from an ophthalmologist but she was able to regain most of her vision.
Oh no! I’m so sorry. Prayers for all of you!

It is evident through your posts that your mom is a sweet and absolutely lovely human. Sending big prayers!!
Keeping your mom in my thoughts and prayers!
Positive thoughts all around. She is certainly the sweetest; pictures are worth a thousand words!
My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
My mom had this happen. It was so scary and upsetting in the beginning, especially because my mom loves to do handwork and quilting more than anything, and she was afraid this would take that away from her. In the beginning it was really tough, but now 2 years later she still has her blind spot, but it doesn’t affect what she can do. I think it’s hard for her to live with the fear that it could happen again, and with your mom’s hearing loss it may be even scarier for her. I bet your mom is getting great care whatever you choose, but my mom really appreciated the input of the neuro-ophthomologist (there’s probably one in SLC). Not to butt in on your decisions. Sending prayers.
Janae, so sorry for your mom! Praying she heals quickly. It was providential that your brother was there.
Sending prayers to your sweet mom and family!
Prayers and positive energy to your mom, you, and the rest of your family. <3
