At the very bottom of the site you'll notice I've added a "Donate" button for Paypal. Now, normally I wouldn't do this for the money because I really do enjoy blogging. It gives me a way to express ideas in ways I never thought possible. And to share those ideas with people all around the world. Anyway. two weeks ago my mother went to the emergency room and the doctor told her she had pink eye in both eyes. This was not the case. He gave her some drops and told her it would get better in time. Day after day she put drops in but the eye only got worse. She finally went to a specialist and he rushed her right to Jackson (the state) capitol. The doctor there said that the emergency room doctor had given her drops that had actually melted her contacts on to her eye balls. Now, she thought she had flushed her contacts out days ago. But since she was unable to see, she wasn't sure. So the doctor had to scrape the contacts out of her swollen eye. And then came the bad news.He would give her four different drops to put in every hour for three weeks. And if those drops didn't improve or didn't improve well enough then she would lose her eye. The drops are $200 each for three bottles. My sister was kind enough to buy the first three, but now my entire family is broke and terrified that my mother will lose her eye. My dad has already had two strokes and is unable to work. I myself am away at college and sending all the money I can spare. I'm not asking anyone for any large donation. However, if you would like to help a family in need we would be forever grateful, and somehow we could repay you. Thank you everyone and keep my mother in your prayers
-Note, Picture above his her eye after two weeks of putting drops in it and it still looks that bad. Without more drops she'll have to undergo surgery that could cause blindness.
