I know this isn't related to Havs but my family really needs your prayers. My oldest daughter, Julie who is 36, married and the mother of 3 has had alot of pain around her right eye and the pain goes around to her temple to the back of her head and down her neck. This started about 2 weeks ago. She went to the eye doctor right before Thanksgiving and her sight was 20/20 and they dilated her eyes and everything looked fine. she then went to the general practitioner and they put her on a z pac incase it was an infection. Didn't phase it. A couple of days ago her sight in her right eye started getting bad. Focus was off and things looked dimmer. She has been living on pain killers. Today she went to my internal medicine doctor who orderd an MRI for tomorrow afternoon. He said he didn't like the fact that her sight in that eye had gone from 20/20 to 20/40 in one week. He said it could be an optical tumor. Of course this news is scary to all of us, especially Julie. As her mother I am endeavoring to remain calm and reassuring but it is difficult. She has always been a wonderful child...never was a problem or rebellious.....always a joy. Please keep her and her hubby and children, Madison, Allyson & Hudson in your prayers. Times like these are the ones you pray will never come your way. Unfortunately none of us are exempt. Thank you!

Sending prayers out to you, your daughter and her family. I'm also sending healing vibes in her direction. I know how frightening this is for all of you. God bless.

My best friend's son had eye issues and she took him right to Will's Eye Institute, which is world famous..

I will definitely be praying for your daughter!

I will be thinking of you and your daughter and praying for good news tomorrow, and that they find the cause of the pain and it is easy to correct. I have had a silent migrane that took my vision completely in one eye, it took a while for it to come back so I know how scary it can be. The power of Havanese owners is very strong, as we have all seen in the past. Know that you and your family are not alone. Get some rest, you will need it.
