Yes - this IS an update - FINALLY!

By the end of  this workweek we will be moving into NOVEMBER!   It doesn’t seem possible.  I thought I needed  to  give you all a some kind of an update.

For the time being and hopefully for the next 2 – 3 months at least, my vision has improved enough that I am back, and stay there, to work – last week was my first week for a few weeks where I have actually been able to get in a full 5 day work week, 8 hrs each day – not even a doc appt (that came this past Saturday only because the bandage contact lens I was wearing came out and I can’t put it back in) .  Since 9/23/13, when I had outpatient surgery to remove the basal cell carcinoma (clean margins) from the bridge of my nose (same side as eye with problems), I have had an increase in my vision problems – the surgeon had assured me that would not happen but that was BEFORE he knew how deep  the bcc had gone (to the bone) which warranted a change in how he did the graft which pulled down on my lower eyelid which exposed the eye to even more problems.  Even tho no new additional eye problems were anticipated as a result of the bcc surgery – it is amazing how my vision has improved as that surgical site has healed and once again my lower eyelid is getting, not just back to the way it was before all this but maybe a little better.

Ok – so now I am waiting for my next go-round of eye procedures which is scheduled for 1/21/14 in Overland Park, Kansas then a follow-up appointment the NEXT day – also in O.P.
That will be  when my eye specialist will take stem cells from my left (non-functioning but otherwise healthy) eye and transplant them onto my RIGHT eye in hopes of improving the health of my R eye.  Then he will cover that with a couple layers of amniotic stem cells to add extra protection/healing which will just about do away with any vision for a few days until the healing process takes hold - I AM NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS PART!

Anyway, better get this posted before much more time passes.  Shiloh'n Diva Shasta are well - eating, going out and then coming in - a few times, napping as much as they can along with the occasional tussle then sharing the bed with me - I thought I had a full size bed but usually I MIGHT get 10 inches of it. Right now at night they are outside, doing a howling good job of keeping the backyard critter free.  Guess I best get them in before they wake up the neighborhood.

A Brief Message From Mom Kim

This past Thursday I saw my local eye doc,
and my vision tested at 20/250 (legal blindness is 20/200).  I have done what I could with helping Diva Shasta with her postings but commenting is getting less and less.  I am not sure if my vision has improved any which it has done in the past and this is why I am just now posting this - it may have actually worsened a bit - I have an appointment this Tuesday to see what the next step is.   

I am hoping Diva Shasta will be able to post at least once or twice this week - she has a couple of new toys and some treats coming her way on her barkday (don't tell) and I am sure she will want to post about this.  One of us will report on my next appointment if we can.

Just wanted to let you all know what is going on in case we suddenly "disappear".  Rite now - we all are off to bed-
 ~Mom Kim, Shiloh'n Diva Shasta~
