Eye Emergency

I started having problems with my right eye this week and ended up seeing my retinal specialist in an emergency appointment yesterday.  The news was not good, I have developed an infection in that eye.  I cannot see anything but light and shapes.

I had four injections yesterday, will go back for three injections on Monday, and I even have to get three more injections on the 4th of July.  If those don't work to clear the infection and restore my sight, then he is talking about surgery.

However, I'm depending on prayer and medicine.

Needless to say, screen time has to be limited as it really hurts my eyes.  I will pop in mid-week if there is anything to report on how the injections are working.  Could use your prayers.

I don't recall ever having made a comment on your blog, Brenda, but I'm writing now to tell you the prayers are on their way as we speak. Eye infections are serious for anyone, certainly more so for diabetics. But we've got you covered. Yes. We. Do. Mindy

You have my prayers, Brenda. I will be praying for restoration of sight, peace in the storm, and for courage in the battle. It certainly must feel like a battle. He knows your needs and can be trusted with each one.

Dear Brenda -- Of course you will have my prayers - one's eyes are so important. I have wanted to write to you before and thank you for telling the world about Mrs. Meyer's soap -- I absolutely love it -- I have " Geranium" and now look for opportunities to do dishes!

You will be in my prayers, dear friend --

Praying for your healing, Brenda. I don't think I ever told you but your blog was the first blog I ever read. I was given an old laptop no one wanted back several years ago, and was told to Google whatever I wanted to read about. I googled coffee or tea, books and kitties. You still had Storm and her sister at the time. I enjoy your blog so much!

I prayed for you last night when I came here. I am a very long-time reader, Christian woman, and I stay very quiet, usually. Your blog has blessed me very much. I know you may not be reading this for some time...prayer will continue for you everyday. Eileen
