We went to Dr. Blair's office on Monday, he was so excited about how well Skylers eye was looking! He said that things were right on track, and that he should heal up quickly. So last night about 10:00 pm Skyler came to me and said he couldn't see anything but darkness. I raised my fingers to see if he could see any of them, but all he could see was a slit of light. He told me that since he got home from school at 3:30 his eye was starting to darken, by 6:00 it was totally dark. I knew we had a very early appointment to see Dr. Graff today in Show Low so I didn't call the office last night. We went in and sure enough the retina detached AGAIN! We are going to Mesa, AGAIN, tomorrow and having surgery. He will have another oil bubble put in and it will probably stay in for at least 4 months.
Sky is disappointed, but is happy to miss more school. He is still a trooper about things and just goes with the flow. Not sure how this will effect next years basketball season. Only time will tell.

We took Sky down to Mesa yesterday and they were able to remove the oil bubble!!!! He is in pain, but is handling it pretty well. At one point the dr. came out and told me that he thought he would have to remove Sky's lens. I was freakin out to say the least, but once in there the lens was okay and they were able to leave it alone!!! Dr. Graff told us that we are doing something right, because he should have taken it out. Dr. Graff is AWESOME!! He is LDS and really likes Skyler, so we are getting the best care for him!!!!!!
On another note, my dad is fighting cancer right now and it has gotten worse. My sister Kandra wrote about the cancer and treatments they are going to do on him on her blog---  She really did a good job explaining it. Please keep him in your prayers.

I don't think Skyler thinks that this eye problem will ever end:(  He has been such a trooper tho. Last Friday night he came in to our room with his hand over his eye and in so much pain. I text his doctor in Snowflake, but he didn't answer, so I called the Phoenix office trying to get his surgeon. He wasn't on call so they told me that they couldn't do anything anyways because they were in Phoenix. So they told me that they would try to get a hold of the doctor on call in Show Low. Dr. Stewart calls me and tells me that he is in Phoenix, but that he would get a hold of his son, who is also a dr. He calls and wants to see Skyler right away! SO we go to Snowflake at 10:30 at night. Get to the dr's. office and looks at Sky. His eye is pretty irratated and suggests we use more drops and to call him the next day. By the next day, Sky is feeling much better finally!
His dr. in Phoenix called us personally Saturday night and wants him to get the oil bubble out right away. We are going to Mesa on Wednesday to get it out! WOOOOHOOOO- Sky is so excited. Hopefully, he will recover fast from that. He may need contacts in the near future, but thats better than no sight at all!!!
Skyler has had the best doctors, I know he has been watched over through this whole ordeal. We have been so blessed!
I have been going over to my awesome friend, Sandi's house to make homemade wheat bread!! She has a Kitchen Aide mixer, which mixes it so much better than doing it by hand. I love making bread! It makes me feel somewhat like Molly Mormon:) My kids really like it too, so that is great because they may have to eat wheat a lot more! Thank you Sandi for putting up with me all the time, your the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hunter finished his basketball season, they ended up even on wins and losses. He really improved through the season, which is great and hopefully he will get to play next season! He is such an athelete, and we are very proud of him!
