Going Blind

Above is a photo of my sister and my second daughter Natasha

Last week I heard some upsetting news my sister who is 6 years younger then me will be blind in one eye in 3 months and blind in the other eye in 6 months time without to fix the cataracts in both eyes.

In order to fix the bad eye she needs to have the operation next month the out of pocket expense for the operation is around $2000. The operation will have to be done at the private day stay hospital because if she waits to get into a public hospital she will already be blind in one eye.

Now she doesn't have the money for the operation and mum and dad has asked the family to chip in to help raise the money, but as day said that really means him, my hubby and maybe my brother although I know bro doesn't have much money either at this time.

When I told my youngest daughter she said she wanted to help even though she doesn't have much money she did give my mum $50 this morning and mum has said she is so proud of her for chipping in and so am I she is a wonderful girl

Only the wealthy can be healthy. Isn't that just the pits? We're in the same boat.

Hi Fran & Barb

Thanks for the support we will get the money together somehow. So far 2 of my daughters have chiped in and I am so proud of them for that.

Update on mum
