Celebrate the Small Things
I'm celebrating the continued good news about my eyes: The pressure has come down a great deal in both eyes.
It looks like I won't need glaucoma surgery in my left eye, although in a couple of years I will need cataract surgery, and I will need to take eye drops for the rest of my life.
At present I still take an eye drop every two hours for my right eye (the operative eye). But my opthamologist says it is healing nicely and looks very good. She gave my husband and I the go ahead to travel in October to our beloved Galicia. We would have liked to go for two months (September and October), but she's still monitoring it. I have another eye appointment next week, and then I'm assuming the check-ups will fade to every two weeks, then monthly, then every two months. Once she's sure it's stabilized, then the check-ups will be every 6 months. (So hopefully next spring we can stay longer.)
What are you celebrating today? I'm looking forward to your good news. Have a great day, and have a great week-end.
