I saw the surgeon yesterday and this is what I have: Macular Hole and Macular Pucker … yeah, I couldn’t get just one thing, I had to have two things going on in my eye. But that’s because my body is weird! The links explain what it is and the treatment … if you really want to get grossed out, do a search in You Tube, they have the actual surgery of an eye, repairing these things. Yes, I was stupid enough to check out the surgery. Not sure if it helped or not, but at least I know what to expect.
I can be awake for this or knocked out. There are pros and cons to each, so that is something I need to think and pray about as well as talk to my general doc. My surgery is schedule for July 10th in the morning, provided I get the okay from work. I have my bouts with fear, but then I have waves of calm. So the wait will be beneficial to get my mind in a good place.
After I received this great news, I did what normally calms me down and eat. We went to Claim Jumper for lunch and on our way home we stopped at Dairy Queen and bought a Turtle Brownie Ice Cream Cake. Yeah, I know, with my diabetes that isn’t one of the best things to eat, but it sure tasted good!
So that was my Friday. I hope you all had a good Friday and enjoy the weekend!!
