This e-mail from Jacquie re Eva’s eye appointment:

We took Eva and Dale to Hastings Tuesday to see Dr. Welch at the Retina Center of Nebr.  She has wet macular degeneration in her right eye which Dr. Welch treated by giving her an injection in her eyeball.  She also has some drops to use for a few days.  The injection will need to be repeated once monthly for 5-6 months but she can see Dr. Welch at his satellite clinic in North Platte for those.  Dr. Welch feels that the degeneration was caught soon enough to save the sight in Eva’s right eye.  Please continue to keep her in your prayers; this was a very painful procedure and she was still very uncomfortable when we dropped her off at home late Tuesday afternoon.
