Not a lot of news to report since the last update. The eye treatments continue, the eye is continuing to make “good” progress (according to the doctors), and it is still not completely healed. My last appointment, a week ago, they indicated it would be another two weeks at least. Tomorrow, I find out whether I have one or more weeks to go. At this point, I can see the remaining ulcer myself (using my good eye), and the defect is smaller, but not gone yet. The bad eye still has clouded vision, and I still have to wear an eye-shield and pad to cover the eye. The eye is light sensitive, so going outside is something I have to avoid. So, basically I’m cooped up on the boat in a dark room most of the time.
Since the anti-biotic drops are still being applied, the pain in the eye continues. I’ve consumed more pain reliever pills in the past three weeks than in the rest of my entire life. Not a record I feel good about.
Meanwhile, our plans for what we’re going to do after all this are up in the air. We will just have to wait and see what my eye’s condition will be at the end of the treatments to see what options we will have. The only problem is that waiting is not a skill I have ever learned. In fact, I’m horrible at waiting.
