Thanks for all the sweet comments and prayers for my Mom today. It was a long, hard day at Duke for her, but she did great and the doctor recommended surgery for her to see if she could get some improvement with her vision.
They don't know how much damage there has been to her eye, but he wants to try the surgery in hopes that he can restore some (but not all) of her vision. When she had her surgery back in January, they put oil in her eye and some of that oil has leaked out and is covering her cornea and causing a cloudy film over her eye. She also has a lot of scar tissue in her eye, that the doctor wants to remove.
After all of this is done, he hopes that she will see better, but he said that she would never have the vision that she had prior to the cataract surgery. He told her that if she did not have the surgery, that her eye would continue to get worse until she was totally blind in that eye. Needless to say, Mom was willing to have the surgery to prevent this, but also hoping to regain some vision. Anything would be better than what she has now.
The great thing is that they have an opening for her surgery a week from Tuesday on September 21st. We were thrilled that she will get to have her surgery so fast. And hopefully will be on the road to recovery real soon.
We really liked the doctor at Duke and feel like he will be the answer to prayer for my Mom. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
Love & blessings,
