My EYE-Bad

Trying my best to make it sound like IPad. Hey if you have to explain it doesn't it make it more funny? No? Are you sure? Yeah, you're right.

Last week we saw the fabulous Dr. Lewis- freaky deaky eye doc- who hung out with us until past 5 talkin' bout cataracts and fancy gold medallions. Well, just cataracts and loose lenses.

I learned that these next couple of months for me will be challenging vision-wise. Which is fun! Dr. L said that "unfortunately" I must wait until the left eye (sucksworth) is stabilized and that I "will not like it at all". I asked him if that's even possible to stabilize. He said he thinks I will begin my right eye surgeries at the end of the summer since the cataract in the right (champion) is really moving in (I've dropped 2 sight lines in less than a month) and that the lens is becoming even more dislocated in the right. The left still has some "capsule" on it that needs to peel back more and some blood droplets in that vision.

It's so funny because yesterday at church, I really felt as if God was giving me practice yesterday at talking about a physical problem that in all honesty may never be resolved and staying positive. By the 4th person I was telling I think I finally got it right. I'm okay. Yeah, my eyes will have surgeries from here on out. Not one surgery will fix everything. Yeah, it's going to get pretty darn blurry here in the right eye soon. Yeah I've got a 3 in thick file at the Baylor Eye Clinic. You know what, so what. I've been healed already. Spiritually I'm healed. So with that knowledge and with HIs grace, what do I have to complain about? Complaints are so 2008. Again, I'm so thankful that we are even able to meet with doctors at all about this. There are people that do not have that luxury.

Today I meet with Dr. Yeu(know it)-lens surgeon- and she will hopefully give me a timeline of what to expect. If that is God's timing, plan, will, etc. We are off to the town of Fort Worth. I should say, 'city'. My college apt-mate is getting hitched!!!! If you knew her, hitched is not a pairing with her coolness. She is one of the coolest. I'm praying I won't dork out as a bridesmaid. But I'm excited about seeing her and seeing my sidemate too, Ashley! John and I are pumped about having a vaca together. Leelah is staying with his parents in Huntsville. I don't know if they allow that kind of fierce dramattitude there. We'll see...
