Momma has been waiting to tell everyone until she found out, for sure, what is going on. On Sept. 19th (exactly one month from today) she has to go in for eye surgery, the earliest she could get in. Her eyesite started failing 2 months ago. Her left eye is pretty useless now, as she developed a macular hole. (Her Dr. thought it might close on it's own, that is why they waited two months.)
She says it makes reading hard because the left eye is 20/200 (she can't see the big E on the eye chart,) the right is 20/25, so it makes focusing impossible and she gets eye strain real bad. She says taping the bad eye shut would be hard because she also suffers from vertigo.
So, if we don't sign as many blogs, that is the reason. (If only we girls could figure things out better, we wouldn't need her to help us.) Until that time, we will try to post daily, and visit as many blogs as we can. After the operation, she will be unable to do anything for a while. More on that, right before the operation.
P. S. If any of you know of someone who has had surgery for a macular hole (recovery means looking down for 9 days) please contact us. Momma also has macular degeneration, but that is a whole other issue. Thanks
