Another Eye Update

Well I had cataract surgery this past Tuesday in Flagstaff. It went way better than the last 2 surgeries I have had! I went to Dr. Blair and he said that my vision is now 20/30 in my right eye!!!!!!! I had been 20/200, and still am that way in my left eye. I have decided to have my left eye done now. There is a very high risk that it could detach also, but he thinks if we go in and tack everything down in my eye before the cataract surgery that it will have a better chance of not detaching. I can't tell you how exciting this is. I have worn glasses since I was in first grade and I have never been this low before. I can actually see the clock without my glasses on for the first time! I will let you all know more when I go in next week for my appointment.

Hooray for you! Who'd ever think you'd get excited about yet another eye surgery. Its amazing that they can implant a new lense in your eye that will allow you to see for the first time ever without glasses. A great blessing to be thankful for. Now all you have to do is endure the pain one more time. See ya Thursday.

YEAH FOR YOU! Who would have thought that when this all first happened it would turn out to be a blessing. We missed you at Thanksgiving.

Last time we visited, I didn't get the "eye" update--too many other things to talk about in your very exciting life. Hope it all goes well. I can relate to the legally blind thing, but haven't ever pursued the surgery yet. Good Luck with your eyes, kids, and life in general:)

I didn't know you were having eye surgery. I wish there was something they could do so that I could see better. That is great that you can see so well, I'm jealous!
