  • It's almost time, for Cowbird to lose its helium for posting our stories and deepest thoughts, and all that started for me in June of 2012. Now it is time to update and say my goodbyes to all the friends I have made on this site. I will miss all of you a great deal, reading your stories, following your paths through life, your wisdom and encouragement, and I hope to see you on another site.

    It's amazing how many times we talk about seeing and site/sight, visioning/envisioning and other words emphasizing our visual acuity. It is a sense that we don't usually dwell on, and possibly take it for granted, and yet it is important for us in getting around and performing many of our life tasks with care and safety.
  • I don't want to leave people hanging, so the update on my 'sight', (wet macular degeneration in right eye), is that I saw the retina specialist in Monday, had more tests, dye put in my blood stream to see what was going on with the fluid and blood vessels in the back of my eye, and then had a shot in my eyeball. My eye is currently very messed up and they hope they caught it in time. The shots will continue once a month, possibly forever and maybe not.

    They are hoping they can get my sight back to what it was before the cataract surgery, which would be fine, I would have to continue wearing glasses to drive, and if I'm very lucky it might go back to the wonderful vision I had after the cataract surgery. I will not envision a lesser possibility. He told me to not have the cataract removed from my good eye, and although it is not showing wet AMD, it could develop it after cataract removal and it isn't very bad yet. I have booked a ride to the doctor for the shot next month, with public transportation picking me up and bringing me home as I live in the country and a distance from the vision clinic and I can't drive afterwards. I had pain and blurry vision for part of the next day, also.

    My good eye, is taking over much of the seeing, and both eyes get tired easily so I must rest them frequently and have reduced my reading time until my vision gets better. I continue my positive visualizations for my eyes, and have gratitude and appreciation for the sight in my left eye. And I'm thinking ahead, to leaving the lake and moving closer to children/grandchildren who live in another state, several hours away. We shall 'see' what the future will bring.

    Much blessings to all of you. See you around.
