*here's a note from betsy and my husband.
To my friends, family, and those I have yet to spit up on:
Last Friday, I had a little accident. I had to go to Kansas City and get my eye fixed, but the surgical team was great and I’m going to be fine. I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who prayed for me. I’m not out the woods yet, so please continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I have 31 stitches in my left eye, but I’m able to move it. That’s how cool I am. I probably won’t be able to see with it, but no one knows for sure. The doctors tell my parents that I have a long road ahead of me, but I’m not scared. This is a little speed bump, not a roadblock. Don’t feel sorry for me or I will bite you, then poop my pants and make you change me. Look me in the eye and ask yourself if you think I’m joking…
I love you all. Pass this on to everyone. Remember that there are others with much bigger challenges. Pray for them too.
