Ok - not gonna try and cover up or make light of this and please be understanding of any typos since my vision is pretty messed up today - even stayed home from work which is a rarity unless my vision just won't allow anything - which is basically wshere it was today.
Ok so for reference, click HERE . I had my appt. with the cornea specialist last Tuesday - the epithelial defect that my local eye doc thought he saw a few days before, was gone - this was good HOWEVER he removed - DID NOT replace the bandage contact lens I pretty much depend on for decent vision (still not sure why he did this but I know leaving a contact on the eye for 2 weeks can also cause problems - should have asked him) He had PLANNED on leaving it out at least 2 weeks and I was able to work all last week HOWEVER today was different. Now there is NO DOUBT there IS an epithelial defect (this is like a skin tear on the surface of the cornea) and it is larger than any I have had before. During my appt today with my local eye doc he also took pics of my eye to email to the cornea specialist and also put another bandage contact lens in (these are basically a contact lens with no power but they PROMOTE healing and maintaining good condition of the eye). So, after my specialist looked at the pics and read the email, he called my local doc to let him know what the next step is - I have another appt with the specialist next Tuesday (11/11) At least I don't have to take time off for that sppt since I am off that day. HOWEVER (aren't you tired of that word - I know I am) it is the time between now and then that is really important - a lot of POTP is needed because that defect on my cornea NEEDS to be reduced a great deal or totally gone OTHERWISE I face surgery - another stem cell transplant possibly followed by another cornea transplant about three months later - this is the surgery I was wanting to put off as long as possible due to time off I would need and finances.
So - the main reason I would appreciate the POTP and prayers is the epithelial defect - my doc says it usually takes awhile for it to heal - I don't have awhile(time off from work) He has had a hard time before because it healed faster than what he thought it would - thanks to YOUR POTP.
Also not sure how much me or the Beaglebratz will be around for the next few days so if anyone wonders where we are - that's why we are MIA. Now, before I get any closer to loosing my patience with blogger, I am signing off. Oh - the Beaglebratz are fine - doing their usual wonderful snuggles and cuddles.
