I'm very scared right now. One of my biggest fears is staring me in the face.
I went to the eye doctor today. Was time for my yearly check-up. I have been noticing, almost like a smudge on my glasses, from my left eye. Now, I was told about 15 years ago that I had a very small catarac(sp?) in my left eye. Been watching it for years and it has grown a little over the years, but not by much. Well, I thought maybe that is what it was. It is not.
I was told that my retina is separating and has bubbled out and there is fluid in it. It is going to require surgery, but we do not know how badly yet. Because it is Friday late afternoon, she was not able to get ahold of a specialist. I will have to wait til Monday.
She wants me to lay down and take it easy. No lifting or any exercises or anything that would cause pressure or trama. I have to work tomorrow! I'm freaked! When I told her I HAD to work, she just told me to take it easy! Right! Not only that, I have to wait until Monday to even find out when I can see the specialist to find out what is the total picture. She said it could be as easy as a small laser procedure, or I might have to have a surgery. I think I'm going to cry.
Thank you my DC family, again, for letting me get this out. The support I receive from all of you is such a blessing. Thank You!
God Bless, Mickey
