My going blind and regaining some of my vision has been a wild ride to say the least. It's highlighted the power of God and his mercy here at our house and quite honestly around the world. I'm a dog with an extensive social media range. I have friends on Twitter, FB and am a member of Blogville. Dear and Special friends kept me in their thoughts and prayers all across the Twitter community, Tweeting and RTing request for prayers for the restoration of my eyesight. Pup's and their hoomans far and wide in the Blogville neighborhood prayed that my vision would be restored. My FaceBook and Tanner Brigade furiends adding their prayers along with those of my Mom and Dad's that I might see, so I could once again be able to chase my soccer ball and enjoy the beauty that's all around me here in my part of rural North Carolina.
Bunny (on Twitter) thank you for keeping us on your prayer list for so very long, as well as everyone who kept the list going with all the RT's. Blogville Power of the Paw, thank you for your eloquent blog requesting prayer for my vision. All our fruiends and friends on FaceBook and Tanner Brigade, thank you for your prayers. We thank everyone in our social media circle for the incredible support you've shown us. We know you Twitter Pups must have blown up Twitter a couple of days.
We're deeply touched, and each and every sign of support is seared into Mom and I's memories and hearts. My family and I have been through some dark days, and you all were the bright light. The times our spirits were at their lowest, you were there encouraging us to have faith and believe. Thank you.
We'd like to extend our very deepest thanks to the kind pups that offered to pay my vets bills and the terribly expensive medication I'll be on for the remainder of my life. You two will never know what these kind gestures meant to my family and I. Our most sincerest thanks to you and your families. (My family and I are very thankful I have pup insurance that covers my medical bills and medications). Mom called and checked the day before my visit to the Ophthalmology Center. So we are thankful to say we don't need financial assistance. We truly do appreciate the kind and generous offers as they are a first for my family and I.
SARDS is an autoimmune disease. My body is attacking and destroying the cells in my eyes thinking they are foreign cells. I'm currently transitioning over to my lifetime medications now. (I'm on a human grade anti-rejection drug) Monday I'll be going for a blood draw and a panel done to check the medication levels in my system. Everything needs to be just so with this treatment.
We'd appreciate your continued prayers as there are more hard times ahead but we know with your love, support and the grace of God we'll make it through to the other side.
Thank you each and every one,
Molly and my Mom
