I have eye surgery on July 13 for a cataract caused by medication, then after that is fully healed in perhaps 4 to 6 months, then they will do the cataracts on the other eye. The problem is that I am allergic to steroids and the eye surgeon said if I can't tolerate the steroids, then she can't do the surgery and I will lose vision in both eyes permanantly because they won't be able to remove the cataracts. Apparently there is so much inflammation afterwards, that steroids are an absolutely necessity after the surgery and there is no drug to replace steroids for this. I really pushed the eye surgeon with lots of questions on alternatives and such. So the surgeon said the steroid eye drops are a low concentration of steroids. So we are now doing a four-day trial test of steroid eye drops in my eye to be operated on. If the test comes out okay without any problems to that eye, I can have the surgery. If there are problems, I cannot have the surgery and my future is, shall we say, "out of sight." I have added this to my morning prayers. I've talked to both of my cats and told them if it so happens I lose my sight, they will have to ride in my electric scooter basket and give me one meow to go right, two meows to go left and a tap on my hand to stop and two taps on my hand to proceed and to whack me in the head when it is afternoon feeding time. I am trying to be strong and telling myself what will be is in greater hands than mine.
