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!

Hi, Kim! Tell Shiloh and Shasta thanks for leaving such a wonderful welcome back message for me. So, my mom wants me to ask you what condition led to you having a corneal transplant if you don't mind. She has worked in the eye care business for 19 years and is just curious. Also, she is wondering if your epi defect is painful since it is on your transplant. We will keep you in our prayers!

Happy Tails!
