Appointment ran later than what I had planned – 

basically this is just going to keep happening UNTIL I

 have a stem cell transplant from my left eye - the

 eye is healthy just blind - and this is really up to me.

  I have about 2 yrs. & 5 months before I have 

30 years in wkere I work – that would be my ultimate

 goal.  If I can’t wait that long then my next goal

would be anytime AFTER the end of January, 2014 –

when my consolidation loan is paid off.  Of course if

at any time I would absolutely need it ASAP then

most definitely it will happen at that time.  Yes the

epithelial defect was large – between 4.5 and 5 mm 

in size and yes, more cloudiness – both of these are

things I have dealt with before and will likely deal

with again according to my eye specialist. He

replaced the contact lense but other than that, no

new treatment - we both know what I am dealing 

with and what is needed to give me the best possible

chance at improvement.  Oh, the reason I am 

waiting - my doctor is saying recovery and getting 

back to work could take 3 - 6 months and currently 
about 2 days of leave which would mean NO income

which means I want to build up a little leave time.

Anyway, that bandage contact lense has usually been

beneficial in the past at reducing the defect-

even healing it completely a time or two.

So that is what is happening right now.  Hopefully 

the Beaglebratz will return in a day or so. 

Thank-you all for your prayers, AGAIN!

And once again life interrupted ........

Mom Kim here - please pardon any spelling errors

I am seeing through fog or as the doctor said-

increase in the chance of the cornea transplant 

rejecting.   Yes, began noticing a decrease in 

my vision the past day or so and by today, 

wasn't sure if the bandage contact was still in 

so my sis picked me up and off to the eye doc we

went.  The epithelial defect I had that WAS 

small - now much larger and there is an 

increase in cloudiness which is an indication 

of the transplant rejecting so off to my eye

specialist tomorrow to see what is the next 


Then I got the totally unexpected news - I have

a possible BASAL CELL CARCINOMA - right side of 

my nose, within maybe an eighth of an inch of 

the tear duct of my right eye (yesm the one 

with the problems).  I know the BCC is the most

common and least serious of the skin cancers (I 
have already had a melanoma removed from my 

right jawline)  It is the last fact and having 

both parents die from colon and lung cancer 

plus a maternal aunt die from breast cancer is 

the reason I worry about this. 

Anyway, the Beaglebratz HAD planned a nice 

Tasty Tuesday post but that will have to wait 

until next week (MAYBE late tomorrow). 

Anyway, my vision is telling me I need to stop

for now plus I have a bed that needs sheets on 

it and the Beaglebratz need out so guess I will 

top for now.  I really do hope this new problem

is shortlived and the Beaglebratz will be here 

tomorrow or Wednesday,  In the meantime, if you 

have not yet voted in the Dogs of Blogville 

Calendar Contest - please see our early morning 

post for today for all the details.

And most lastly - as always I hate asking for 

myself - would you please say a prayer for me?
