Well, today’s word is again. I saw the ophthalmology surgeon yesterday. It appears that the retina has developed scar tissue from the last surgery, so the surgeon will be going in again for another repair. This will happen tomorrow at 4 o’clock.
This time he will need to do a scleral buckle. This is a flexible band that is placed around the eye to counteract the force pulling the retina out of place. This time he will be inserting a silicone bubble. The good thing about that is that I can travel by air. The bad thing about that is that it will have to be removed surgically.
I still have to have restricted movement for the first week, where I will have to be laying on my right side for the first seven days. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?
This will be under general anesthesia. That worries me a little, as typically I’m pretty sick after getting general anesthesia. But the doctor is well aware of it.
My last scheduled trip to Seattle was canceled due to the first surgery. I did get travel insurance and have been reimbursed for that flight. I have rescheduled a flight to Seattle for the 28th. My son turns 40 on August 5. How can that be since I just turned 40 a couple years ago? 😜😜😜
Prayers as always are much appreciated and welcomed! I won’t be blogging for at least two weeks. And then not very much when I am in Seattle. So blessings to all of you! Have a wonderful month!
