One cannot begin to imagine the dark cloud of doom and gloom that sets in when one's eyesight is threatened -- except for those who have been there and experienced it. It's like being on pins and needles 24/7. So any bit of good news is a welcomed relief.
Today I had an early morning exam with the eye specialist. He says there is some improvement. The inflammation seems to be subsiding. This is certainly good news. But the rest of the news is not quite as good. I still have inflammation in both eyes.
He tells me that this time, with this particular flair-up, the inflammation is quite stubborn and resists leaving completely. But, he said, it is moving in the right direction, and he expects it to be gone in the next two months. In the meantime I have to continue with anti-inflammatory meds until that stuff is gone.
This means that my eye surgery will be put off until I can go three straight months without any inflammation. So, keep me in your prayers. But I did want to share with you this bit of good news for a change.
