November 2, 2009

I'm all smiles today!

BETTER NEWS THAN I EXPECTED! The Retina Specialist did an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scan and the defect under where my macular hole was is reduced in size! Woo hoo! Glory be to the good Lord and the good doctor! I had a little cataract on that eye before the surgery, and he said now it is now more pronounced. He thinks my ophthalmologist might want to remove it soon. (I’ve been told that is no big deal – any knowledge on that procedure out there?) But first, he wants to see me again in 6 more weeks to take another scan to see if the defect has gotten yet smaller or even gone away. After that, he said I could go back to the opthamologist to get my vision acuity checked for new lens for my glasses. He prescribed some expen$ive drops to use twice daily that may further help the healing. God is good!

Let me know if you have any suggestions for designer frames. I want to get frames I LOVE this time! Guess I love to shop for ANYTHING! "Born to shop, forced to work!" That's my mantra....

I go back to the retina specialist on Dec. 7 (the day before my 67th birthday!). I'll get back with ya' then......happy trails to you until we meet again! Stay smiling....I will!
