Pssst. It's me!

I'm back. Got good news from the eye specialist. The inflammation has cleared up in both eyes. I am thankful to the Lord for this news.

This bout was the worst yet. The inflammation was stubborn and did not want to cooperate with steroidal eyedrops and injections. Over the past five or six years or so, these bouts have been bad enough, but none have been as stubborn as this recent bout. This only goes to show me how inflammation can be sometimes. It is very unpleasant and slow to respond. Other times it clears right up in a couple of weeks.

Anyway, as of yesterday, we are all clear. Now, the real problem here is the underlying cause of the inflammation. That is another story in and of itself. Suffice it to say it is a systemic condition that can effect multiple bodily systems. So far only two, one of which is my eyes, have been effected. But due diligence is always necessary.

Thank you for your prayers and kind words during these past few months. Right now I got a reprieve, but there is a lot going on internally that has nothing to do with the eyes. As for the eye surgery I will need, we are going to put that off for a bit longer until we see how all of this goes. I will keep you posted.
