Emotional Week

Sky had his latest surgery last Wednesday. Didn't go as well as we had hoped for. They went in and removed both bubbles and the buckle around his eye. Then worked around the retina, but there is so much scar tissue around it that Dr. Sipperley said that there was no hope of Sky seeing out of it again. I wasn't able to be there because I was at Stake Young Women's camp. Dave said the Dr. came in told him he wouldn't be able to help him and pretty much left the room. I am so ticked, this is a 15 year old boy your telling he won't see out of his eye again and you walk out of the room? What kind of dr. are you? I don't care if your nation renowned. You take the time to have compassion and help Sky out with this devastating news. Barnet/ Delany will get an earful from me on Thursday!!!! He is handling it really well though. We are sending his file to St. George and seeing if there is anything the Dr's. can do up there. Lance knows some of the Opthamologists there. I'll keep you posted on this.
I was able to go to girl's camp this year, it was the most awesome experience I've had in a long time!! Before I left, my bishop called me into his office and told me I was being released from the YW. I was so upset, I love my Beehives. They are so amazing and great girls. I cried, threw tantrums,  and screamed but to no avail. The Lord needs me to be a Sunbeam teacher! I'm still not sure this is where I truly am needed but I'm not going to argue with Him:) I will miss my girls soooooooo much, they have taught me so much these last 2 1/2 years. Change is something that is really hard for me, especially since I'm a nervous wreck when I even walk by the Primary room!!! I may never know the reason why this is happening right now, but I just have to trust in the Lord.
Bishop gave me 3 weeks to mourn this change, so I actually have 2 weeks left. This will be a great challenge but I will learn to love those special 3/4 year olds.  Plus I will be in the class with Autumn!!!
Well until next time-----

Wendy,
I know this has been a very emotional week for you but just remember how many people love you. I believe you are strong woman, and with the love and support of your family and friends the sun will shine again.

Aww, such a disappointment for his eye. So sorry about that.

The Lord must see something special in you to have you teach sunbeams! They are a tough crowd. I'm sure you'll love them as much as the beehives soon enough.

Hang in there!

I pray that a miracle can happen with Sky and I hope that the pain will go away for him:(( What a strong kid. Seriously. Tell him we are thinking about him. And tell Clay a happy late birthday.

And I will pray for you in your new calling...oh and they are 4 years old...it does make a difference:)) Good luck!

Those little 'Sunbeans' are even better than chocolate ice cream! They love you no matter what, they'll tell you whatever is on their minds (even Family Secrets), they love to hear stories about Jesus, they are good huggers, they like to hold your hand, they carry strange things in their pockets.... if you aren't careful, you'll cry when you get released from Sunbeams, too. :) Relax and enjoy them.

I'm with Grandma Turtle.....sunbeams can be great! And like Shawn once said....just "put on your big girl panties" and get to it! If you were called to that then you are meant to be there and the Lord qualifies who he calls.
I am so sorry about Skyler. My heart just aches thinking about all of the misery he has been put through the last year. Tell him that Regan prays for him every time we pray because she "loves him so much and wants his eye to get better". Love you!
