Off to the Doctor…
My folder gets thicker and thicker, and I feel more and more prepare to explain myself.
Today I travel to another long-awaited appointment… and I am filled with hope. Pray for answers for me!
I thought I’d update you on my eye. Wednesday will be 3 weeks with uveitis… I’m down to steroid drops 3x a day. It’s definitely not gone, and probably aches the same, but visually – the redness looks better. It’s the swelling inside, that we can’t see that is concerning – they say. From what I’ve studied on the matter, it seems most people have flare ups from discontinuing treatment too soon – and it comes back worse, and sometimes won’t leave.
I am willing to be patient.
Each morning I wake up and can feel this “haze” over my eye…. like someone has been scratching it with sand paper. The entire eyeball aches, and it appears a red filter clouds me from seeing true color from it also – but is definitely improved over all. I thought I’d share the progress with you. Warning, the image after the first week is freaky – only because my eye is dilated.
(and I’m not wearing make-up! Gasp!) Hey, you were warned!
Several times I’ve felt as though I was getting it in the other eye as well… so far, so good. Just achy, and fatigued. I’m sure it’s just part of the empathy the other eye experiences. It’s definitely a blessing NOT having the eye dilated… it’s amazing how that tires your eyes and letting that much light in causes chronic headaches. Praise be to God for the progress made!
Patience, patience, patience. (repeat) All in His time.
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world;
and this is the victory that has over the world – our faith.
Who is the one who overcomes the world,
but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?”
1 John 5:4-5
