The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
Won't be posting much for now .. . .

I've been having problems with my left eye for about a month. Went to see the Opthamologist on Monday (spent 3 hours), and he sent me to a Retina Slpecialist on Tuesday (another 4 hours). |
After many tests and pictures, he determined I have a macular hole in the retina of my left eyee which will require surgery (June 29).
I had this done to my right eye in 2011. The surgery itself is no big deal, but the recovery process in horrible. For 1-2 weeks you cannot raise your head...must remain in face-down position most of the time....especially while sleeping. I'm dreading this - - - Needless to say, my mood has gone south, and I'm feeling mighty frustrated at this point. Bah! lol
We will be anxious for you to be over this....

a little easier knowing I've been through this before. I feel bad because I don't drive, so I have to have Bill take me....and wait! I was told I could be at the hospital for 3-6 hours, and the driver has to remain there the entire time. That's kinda tough....Thanks for your concern, Beverly.|
We will be here for you!

In our thoughts and prayers and we shall "hold your place". I'm sorry to hear this but glad to hear surgery isn't that far away and will lead to improvement. Will be thinking of you!|

This sounds dreadful...especially the face down part! Two positive things maybe....you won't lose your vision and you're home and near your support system. I will definitely miss you |
You have a gentle touch which I appreciate so much.
Is there anyone who get post hers just to let us know how you're doing?
Yes, I'm so glad I'm home with Billl and the kids....

They were so helpful last time, and I know they'll be here supporting again. And, of course, my vision is everything. I can't imagine losing it. It will be OK...I'm just shocked right now that this is happening again. It will all work out fine....|
Sue-I知 so sorry to read this.... .

But I知 glad there is something they can do to help with it. You will be missed!! Take care of yourself and know we will all be thinking about you!! |

I'll still be here most of the time. My vision isn't too bad right now, but I was told to cut backk on computer time. Once I have the surgery, I' won't be able to ANYTHING for at least 5 days.....if not more. Last time, it was 3 weeks!!!!! Poor Bill......|
