This is a short note from the mom since even using this font is a struggle.  First of all-Shiloh'n Shasta are fine - loving the extra mom time.  Yes, the vision problems have reared their nasty head again.  In a way it is ahmost like a deja vous of last year,  The problem this time started out as   usual this past Sunday but by Monday afternoon when  I saw the specialist in Overland Park, Kansas -  I had developed a small defect on the surface of my eye - solution was to increase the steroid eyedrop.  Nothing new about that - or so I thought - I thought I knew all of the adverse effects of it.  By Tuesday morning I was noticing more vision problems.  By the way, I HAVE to use the steroid eyedrop to prevent rejection. So, bak to the local eye doc who didn't like what he was seeing when he looked at my eye - he was concerned another fungal infection had started. Luckily for me, this was the week my specialist would be in the office that afternoon and my local doc wanted  him to see me first thing.  No big surprise that when he saw me, he confimed that diagnosis.  So ecxept for Monday morning I have been home and the dogs having a great time.

Ok, that  was the physical aspects of what is happening - I don't have time to go into the emotional aspects - and I am not sure I want to go into it anyway.  I try to stay positive and the dogs are a HUGE help for that but  there are times I struggle with that too.  Anyway I gotta go for now - have another eye doc appt,

Kim, Shiloh'n Shasta
