Well, the plan was for this to be an announcement of my triumphant return to the blogosphere (albeit in a somewhat limited capacity) with a new pair of much stronger glasses around now. For my appointment with my eye doctor was scheduled for last Friday morning (August 28th) but as with many a plan with other mice and men, my plan went awry.
Oh yeah, I made my appointment. It was first time I have been more than 50 feet from the house since I went to see a doctor after having to go to the emergency room almost two years ago, but by the grace of our Heavenly Father, I made it to see (so to speak) the eye doctor.
Now, I do not think I had become legally blind. For I could see things, but the only letter on the eye chart I could read was the big E at the top, with even it being rather fuzzy—even with glasses on.
Nope, there would be no much stronger glasses for me. For they insisted upon stopping the bleeding in the back of both of my eyes first, and then the plan is for me to undergo cataract surgery on both eyes. They did stick a needle with Avastin in my right eye, however, with the left eye to get stuck this coming Thursday (September 3rd).
The vision in my right eye has improved considerably since. I would not be able to publish this update without that. For it had become to where I could not see which keys I was hitting on the keyboard. Arlynda keeps cringing because of the white of my right eye now bing more red, but I am quite used to her looking at me and cringing after over 20 years of such looks.
Please forgive me for staying almost completely online, and I think it would be best for me to remain absent for at least another two weeks because of how overly stressful it still is. Hopefully, both eyes will be back by then to where they were before the lines started becoming so blurry 5-6 weeks ago. Getting a new pair of glasses will be addressed after the cataract surgeries, but it may be that I will no longer even need glasses after the scales are peeled off.
Thankfully, my eye doctor is part of a clinic that seems to be untarnished by the current general state of our health care system, but my mama often said that I was awfully gullible. Sigh.
