Update and Buttons

Thanks for the comments asking about my eye situation. It's improving, and I'm definitely out of the woods as far as the Uveitis goes. There is no active inflammation going on, but I still have some blurriness that fluctuates from day to day, due to damage from the Uveitis. The Dr. thinks that will continue to clear up over time though. I'm not supposed to see him for 3 or 4 months!

Sometimes it's discouraging because I can't see as good as I know that I should be able to see. I want to have perfect vision.

A few weeks ago I was talking to a friend who is dealing with a less then perfect health situation with her baby, and she said that she had been reminded that we are not perfectly whole here, because we are not supposed to be. We are fragile humans beings, and none of us is perfectly whole her on earth. And that is ok. Complete wholeness will only be experienced in Heaven, and the trials here should make me long for Heaven all the more.

She was an encouragement to me. Maybe my vision will get back to normal, or maybe there may be something that can be done for it in the future, but if there isn't, and if it's always a little fuzzy in my left eye, I can rest assured that God is in control and know that someday he will restore it completely, if now here, then in Heaven.

Aren't my new buttons pretty? I won them on e-bay as sort of a treat for myself after selling some stuff on e-bay and etsy. =) They are not earmarked for anything in particular, and but I fell in love with the bright colors and whimsical designs.



  1. Hi Jessica, Thank you for posting the eye update; I've wondered about you and will continue to pray for your complete recovery. I love the picture of the buttons; it reminds me of a kaleidoscope. ~Karen
