Mom day Monday bummed out - SECOND POST TODAY

I'm not good at asking for
prayers -
I feel like 
I'm a broken record

A while back I said 
I wasn't going to post anymore about my 
eye and vision unless 
there was a drastic change.
A few days later there was a 
second outbreak of the 
Herpes Keratitis virus but 
it was also off to the side and
wasn't causing any vision problem so
I figured no big deal and didn't say anything.
Well the last couple of days I began
noticing a change in my vision-
not as good as it had been.
Just slight at first but
today, at a scheduled follow-up,
it was discovered that the virus had
indeed spread into the path of central vision.
At least I was able to work today and
hopefully tomorrow too.

Ok, so I'm bummed out a little BUT
I don't think it affected my appetite.
Yesterday I had slow-cooked a small pork roast in
a bath of the salsa I LOVE along with
about a fourth cup of Olive Oil and
extra onions and maybe a 
teaspoon of garlic -
of course the meat just fell apart.
That was yesterday BUT
then for MY dinner earlier,
I had purchased a twice-baked potato
from the deli 
(see where I'm going with this?)
Yep, after heating up a little meat that 
I had torn in smaller pieces-
I apooned it over the potato along with the salsa then
sprinkled it with a handful of grated Mexican cheese then
nuked it all for about 30 seconds.
(No, the Beaglebratz did not get any but
they do have their own package of
grated Cheddar cheese which 

they did get some of that)
If I can fix that good of stuff when
I'm bummed out, just think what I can make
when I'm not.

Anyway, time for bed-
I do need to get more sleep than
I have been.
Shiloh'n Shasta are doing their part (kinda)
to help mom out.

Please let us know how you are really doing! You know I understand. I've been through blindness several times and healed with my eye disease and all I can do is pray it stays in remission. I pray that yours will back off, too.
