Just a quick update on my Mom's visit to her eye doctor yesterday. I took her to see the specialist who did her retina surgery and he was thrilled with the progress she had made in just one week. Although she still does not have much vision yet in that eye, he said that her eye was healing very well. The retina looked great from where he had repaired the giant tear and he was very encouraged!
I sure hope that the good news will perk my Mom up. She has been very concerned about her vision, as we all have. The doctor said that with the severity of her surgery, it could take up to 3 months for complete healing in her eye. As a result, he cannot give us any idea as to whether or not she will regain all the vision in her eye. We just have to be patient and wait to see the outcome. I take her back to see the doctor in 3 weeks.
I am praying that she will regain more of her vision so that she can have the independent lifestyle that she so wants to have at this stage of her life. She and my father live in a patio home that they moved to many years ago and they would love to continue to live there. My father does not drive, so it is very important that my Mom get her vision back, so she can drive them around.
Thanks so much for all your sweet comments and words of encouragement ! I so appreciate your concern. Have a wonderful day! Love & blessings!
