Paige from Homestay has been sick
« on: September 26, 2014, 06:14:38 PM »
I haven't posted anything here, because we keep waiting for good news or the healing to begin.  But since 2 people today posted and was asking about her, I will try to bring you up to date..  Going to keep it pretty short and simple, (although her problem is not simple)
August 8, we went to shows and she was complaining about a side ache that she thought was from moving into the new apartment, the next day she called me and cancelled the rest of the weekend plans...felt sick and was tired.......
4 or 5 days later, we were talking to her and she said she was having problems seeing out of 1 of her eyes..
august 18th, her husband called me and told me she had lost complete vision in BOTH eyes!!
Went to eye doctor on or around august 20th, cat scan. Dr. said she had scar tisuue pressing against both optical nerves..
aug, 25th, went to a "specialist" he said NOT scar tissue, but in fact a virus...took blood samples.... at this point she is seeing light...BUT no objects and no side vision
aug 27..  Dr. said B12 defiency, so started shots today.... seeing more light, but still no objects, no perifial vision
9-1.  we saw her and she went to a show with us, BUT it tuckered her out and she stayed home sunday.. looked very puny, no improvement on eyesight.
9-7, seeing some shapes out of right eye.  have another Dr apt next week
Ran some tests and then scheduled another appointment next week
9-18, after cat scans and MRI, she has a consultation visit with surgeon,, they found a cyst on her liver, going to remove it and a couple of other "spots" in that area,,,
9-22, went to dr. today cyst is VERY LARGE. She is schedeled, for ANOTHER mri on tues. 30th, and then a biopsy later that week..maybe..surgury consult on oct. 6th. and surgury sched. for the 7th...................
AND still NO answer on why the eyesight situation!!!!
OK.. this is what our friend Paige has being going through the last 6-8 weeks......
I know there a lot more details, but this is a pretty accurate summation ..
Lots of prayers would be appreciated and well received.!!
I hadn't posted anything because, we kept hoping it would be cured and in the history books!!!!!!.
If you have any specific questions, post them, I will try to answer them.. we are talking to her or her sister every day or 2... :(
Nothing else to say.

Talked to Paige on the phone sat night,she didn't feel like coming over to our after hours gathering....  there were about 15-18 of us, we passed the phone around the circle until she talked to everyone!!.  she was pretty winded by then, so we let her go back to bed..  no word yet on doctors visit today, will update when I hear something..

mon. Oct. 6th update on Paige.
 Talked to Paige on the phone this morning.She goes in for her surgical consult this afternoon, hopefully all goes well and they can remove the cyst as planned tomorrow. Her voice sounded good and strong. She was a little nervous, very understandibly. Wished her well from all of us, told her to give the Dr.'s hell and keep her spunkiness going. She said she would have Deena update us later. We are hoping for a miracle and when she comes out of the surgury she can complain about the light shining in her eyes.
Love you Paige!!!!
