My Special Eyes

Thursday, February 21, 2019

I had a good laugh at the retina specialist today. Dr Baker came in and said "you have special eyes". I guess I'm just different from the usual elderly macular degeneration patients that get their monthly shots. I was diagnosed with wet macular degeneration ten years and one month ago. The optometrist who sent me there, passed away with a brain aneurysm yesterday. I cried when I saw his obit today. My first retina specialist I had died in 2017. Dr Baker is a nice guy. Anyway, because I have only had 7 shots in ten years, have massive floaters that look like a stirrup and a hangman's nose and have weiss ringers in both both, I'm special. Lol, wish I wasn't. We talked mainly about my wonderful floaters and no shot. See him in 4 months ♡ happy camper here

    Every time you can get by seeing the Retina specialist and not need a shot in your eye is a good day. Seven shots in 10 years is a blessing for you to not have to have them often. You do still have plenty on your plate with the other conditions of floaters, and Wringers. I have had some floaters and small as they are, still hate when that happens. I need to make an appointment, or at least call my eye doctor office to see what must be done for cataract surgery. The doctor told me my last appointment that one of my cataracts is ready to be removed. Took me by surprise since it has been there quite a while then all of a sudden it's ready to remove. Since many winter Texans go to the Dr. office for eye care thought I would just wait so now will be the time to call to set something up for late March or early April.

    No shot great. mom has had shots every month for 4 years at 92. Now my 13 yr old granddaughter has childhood mr and has had 3 shots. My mr is dry so no shots. Do you find yourself flinging your arms to shoo bugs just to realize it floaters. I do. Lol
