Not so good news...

We are feeling a bit down right now. Rebekah went to the eye doctor for an intensive exam of her left eye (the one that suffered the worst of the radiation) on Friday. We had been told that she would definately have cataracts in that eye and more likely would be blind in that eye. Until now her vision in that eye had roughly been 20/40 and we thought it pretty miraculous that we had avoided the "guaranteed" problems. Until now. She is deteriorating pretty bad in both vision and clarity. She did not do as well on the vision testing and her eye is pretty much clouding over. We are just not sure where this well end.
