Hubby and I have been working to get Ben put on leave of absence from law school. We were extremely happy to hear that this was granted and that the loan was forgiven. They made it retroactive to the beginning of the semester, so that really was excellent news.
Ben seems to be better, but he is in a protective environment. We still don't know when he will be released or what the doctors have to say about the situation. Hopefully, tomorrow we will get a hold of someone. We still have an uphill battle. They need a place to live as living with his father is unacceptable.
Thankfully, I have had a couple of days of rest and I am feeling a little less scattered and panicked.
I still haven't found a place to stay other than the hotel I am in, but I am swallowing hard realizing this is an emergency. I plan to go to Church on Sunday and talk to the Bishop. Several people have suggested that to me and if I show up, they have something to see. Anyway, whatever happens, we will deal with it. I plan to go to the Temple tomorrow and spend some time there. Then tomorrow night we get to visit!!! Hopefully, we can talk to a doctor.
Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts. I am indebted to you...

Ben went to the eye doctor on Thursday. Apparently, he was seeing double, something he neglected to tell me. Anyway, he was so alarmed he called an expert and got him in to see him the next morning. He too, was very concerned. Ben had had a pineal cyst, (found on the pineal gland in the brain), found 3 years ago, but never followed up on it. They don't know that the cyst is or isn't the cause of his troubles, both the vision troubles and the emotional ones. Anyway, they are trying to get him in to have an MRI and evaluated to see if he needs surgery to remove it.
The good news is that Ben is taking the lessons and my husband (non-member) is sitting in on them.
