Make sure you read last night's post if you have not read it yet.
Odie's insurance finally found a neurologist that could get Odie in on ... June 23rd. Huh? What's up with that? So much for an emergency appointment, right? Actually it turns out it was not a neurologist at all. It was a neuro ophthalmologist which is an entirely different animal. Not exactly what Odie needed but it worked out in her favor anyway.
Odie called the office and they were able to move the June 23rd to 2:30 TODAY. Now that is more like it! However not only was the doctor not a neurologist but Odie did not even see the neuro ophthalmologist. She saw a regular ophthalmologist but she will officially be under the care of the neuro ophthalmologist guy. Got it straight? I know, we need to draw a chart.
Anyway, these folks were super nice and super helpful although we do not know a whole bunch more than we did before. They ran a bunch of test to establish a baseline of where her vision is and they would like to have her back in several weeks to do it all over again. We KNOW they are going to see a huge improvement when she goes back.
Speaking of improvement, although Odie's vision in her left eye is nothing close to what it is suppose to be, it is improving and we give God the glory for that!
The doctor today suggested a little expanded treatment for the Optic Neuritis and the office staff is going to do their best to get Odie into a neurologist as soon as possible. That is a positive development and we should know something about the neurologist appointment in a couple of days.
We are still on hold as to whether or not we will be able to make our next revival in Lawton, Oklahoma starting Sunday. I told Pastor Brandon Murray that I would try to let him know one way or the other by tomorrow evening before church. He has been so gracious to us as have all the Pastors we have scheduled over the next several weeks. I have been asked to preach the last two nights of a revival in Hillsboro, which is local, later this week. We are thankful for that.
Thanks again for praying for us. I know I say thank you over and over but interceding to God on Odie's behalf is really the very best thing you can do for us. May God bless you for taking this fight on for us. We KNOW that God is faithful to hear the prayers of His people and we counting on and experiencing His help every day.
May God bless you all.
