HERE WE GO AGAIN:(

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.

What a crazy life! Can't believe Skyler's luck. Tell him not ever to gamble, he just can't win. Bless his heart, what a bad break. I am sure there is something we can learn from each of our trials--hopefully sooner rather than later so we don't have to keep repeating. . . see you Monday :)

Oh my poor Sky, Hopefully this will be the last time. I can't imagine losing sight that has to be nerve wreaking for him. You are in our prayers Sky. Good Luck.
