Not AGAIN??? 2nd post today from the mom MORE POTP please

First - I want to thank you all for the POTP wishes for my little Diva Shasta - please keep it up as I am pretty sure it is working.  I am slmost sure the problem is in her neck - the cervical spine region since most of the time she carries her head low.  HOWEVER - her head does seem to be coming back up - very slowly and just for a short time and she just seems a little more animated at times.  This is good since getting her to the vet in the next few days is not likely to happen.

As some of you know (and many many thanks for your prayers/POTP for me) I have been having a bit of trouble with my vision.  Earlier this afternoon I had an appointment with my specialist in Overland Park, Kansas and needless to say I was caught a little off guard with the results.  Tomorrow afternoon, here in Topeka (he comes here twice a month) I will be having outpatient surgery during which he will perform an  
which is supposed to promote the healing and overall health of my eye.  Yes, I did include a link to an article that explains it a bit if you are really into that sort of reading but basically the problem with my current corneal transplant is the following-
 my "good" eye, the only one with any vision, is not healthy - right now it has an epithelial defect of the cornea (skin tear on the cornea surface) and a Herpes Keratitis (Herpes eye infection).
At this time the stem cell transplant is really the last form of defense that can be used to combat my current deteriorating cornea transplant; the next step would likely be my FIFTH repeat cornea transplant.

So, what this means is that even tho I will be at home after this procedure, doing ANY posting or commenting for a few days is just NOT going to happen.  I would really REALLY like to go around to those who left your POTP and prayers for Diva Shasta and me HOWEVER what time I have before surgery will be spent getting last minute chores done around the house, making sure any bills due within a few days are paid, doing any laundry needing to be done and any other last minute things I think of as well as giving Shiloh his birthday gifts.  I will TRY to at least post pics tomorrow to show u what Goose unknowingly "suggested" and a couple other things. 
Gotta go for now.
