Had appt. a couple days ago with specialist again.  So, this latest stem cell transplant started way bak on 3/26 - the doc said it would be improved in a couple weeks - well I need to remember that when he initially gives me a time span like that then he is referring to what a person with NORMAL eye health could expect.  My eye health - at least on the right - has not been normal since 1976.

So, this past Tuesday appt. my specialist decided that by now, any improvement brought on by the stem cell transplant, should well be complete by now however the transplant had still not  dissolved completely as it should have so he decided to remove as much of it as he could - it wasn't really doing any good now but it wasn't really causing any problems which it could eventually and it was kinda making what vision I had a little cloudy.  Removing it did cause a small defect (skin tear) on the cornea so he placed one of those bandage contact lens on to protect the eye.  Ok - so now it is a bit more than two days after that - do I see any improvement - YESSSS!!!!!!!!!  So it is not a big improvement HOWEVER I will take it!  At least now when I look out to the back fence and see one of the B-bratz, I can usually tell whether it is Shiloh or Diva Shasta and not just a black blob.  Next appt. with specialist is next Wednesday the 22nd and then the following Tuesday the 28th - sure it runs up the medical expense but I like them close since problems can come up so quikly.

Now some random pics of the Beaglebratz - you may have seen these and I do have new just have not been able to upload them yet.

I love this next picture - that look that Shiloh is giving Diva Shasta is priceless.

Maybe this picture of Shiloh was taken before his counter-surfing days began; notice the fresh baked cookies on the counter and a sleeping Shiloh on the floor.
