Joe got his MRI results yesterday and they came back clear! We are very relieved even if we don't have any answers. The eye doctor thinks that it was caused by a really bad headache Joe had this week. Apparently, severe migraines can cause a similar effect. Anyhow, we can rule out the major causes that would have shown up in an MRI. At least one good thing came of all this...

Jay loves the eye protectors the doctor gave Joe! And in case your wondering, the "no milk" on Jay's shirt is for a purpose. We went to a family reunion on Joe's side that was camping with a ton of other people. We made him enough shirts to last the whole time.
We announced that he was allergic to milk the first night but it was a good reminder to people to be careful. It also took a little bit of pressure off to know that people would see his shirt and then come ask me questions about it.

Anyhow, thanks again everybody for your thoughts, prayers, phone calls, comments, fasting, etc. in our behalf. We are blessed to have such a great support system.

Creepy... and Worrisome

So what would you do if your husband walked up to you and his eyes looked like this?.. Freak out? Good, cuz that's what I did. Actually, his eyes were much worse than this when I first noticed how uneven his pupils were. We took him to an Opthamologist who didn't offer much more than what I researched on Google. Basically it could be a random, unexplainable medical mystery that will clear up on it's own, or it could be really bad. We are going to get an MRI tomorrow to test for the worst case scenarios... aka tumor, abscess, aneurysm. I'm hoping this will all end with us laughing about how we had to spend $3,000 to find out nothing was ever wrong and he's just weird like we always thought.
