I'm still digesting.....
Monday I had an eye appointment at a retina specialist. Did I mention I'm unemployed and hubby is self employed....I do not have medical insurance right now...it wasn't in the priority list when I was trying to pay the "regular" bills. So, when my regular eye dr saw some "wrinkles" on my retina, and didn't think there was anything that could be done, she wanted to have a specialist check it out. She arranged a "cash price" and I went. The news was not what I wanted to hear - not what anyone in their right mind would want to hear I suppose. I need an expensive eye surgery to remove something called a macular pucker. Ordinarily they would let it go for awhile, but it's already advanced enough he hesitates to let it go much longer. I explained I had no insurance so he said that I could come back in, in 6 mo. and he could better evaluate how quickly it was moving. I did make sure that this was not a hereditary condition...happy I don't have to worry about Sarah for awhile.
I'm praying....it's all I can do right now and I'm going to stay positive something will come up.
