Update

I'm typing with one eye able to see. It turned out not to be an eye infection but a rare severe allergic reaction to the medicine being injected in my eyes. My retinal specialist thinks it could have been triggered by the sinus infection.

Thanking God it did not affect both eyes. However, I still can't see very much out of my right eye. I'm taking steroid eye drops every hour I'm awake. I can't read except for briefly on the iPad. Prayers for a full recovery appreciated.

I prayed, Brenda. I'm sorry to "hear" this. I know how much reading means to you and how important sight is to so MANY tasks.

Thank you for the update, Brenda. Continuing to pray. Take care of yourself. Hope you have some good books on 'tape' and your sweet hubby will bring you a cuppa something wonderful every so often. Wish I lived close - I'd deliver a care package!

Be well, dear Brenda....I continue to pray for your well being. Rest well and heal. It may be a good time to listen to CDs and books on tape and audio books.
