Rayetta's Fight for Sight
6/15/2017 Latest post:
Rayetta has a beautiful family of 4. Her husband is Danny Silverman and her two daughters are Nique and Alexandra.
Around a month ago she had an accident at home which resulted in getting a contusion directly on her left eyeball. Her daughter Alexandra took her to the emergency room and within 5 hours she had surgery. The doctors had to stitch up a rupture in the back of her eyeball to save her eye.
Now 6/8/17 she had to have a second (laser) surgery to attach her retina. In order to facilitate healing they inserted an oil filled ball which floats in the eyeball. In order for the ball to help the retina healing she has to lie face down or sit forward with her head down. She has to maintain this position for at least 10 days, and maybe more, depending on her follow-up visit this Friday, June 16th.
Rayetta was fired from her job as a result of this injury and now will need to get unemployment, which hopefully will start in about 4 - 6 weeks or so.
Rayetta is philosophical about it, admitting that it was time for a change and to pursue other dreams and plans. This accidental situation is kick-starting this process to say the least.
Rayetta could use your daily thoughts and prayers. The more people who are actively affirming and acknowledging that the greater power that exists causes healing. This support will invoke this power and facilitate the fast healing and will support Rayetta in the bigger picture of her and her family's future going forward.
