Prayer request

Post by freebird » Sun Jun 28, 2020 4:43 pm

I’ve been blind in my left eye since 1992. In January of this year I couldn’t get in to see my regular ophthalmologist so they recommended I see someone else because of eye pain, watering and swelling. The swelling etc would last 3 or 4 days then get better, but a few days later I’d go through the symptoms again.

The new ophthalmologist checked me over thoroughly and recommended I have a cataract removed ASAP. My former ophthalmologist had mentioned the cataract several times over the years but always wanted to put it off.

I had the cataract removed in January of this year and the surgery went smoothly and praise God my vision improved from 20/70 with glasses to 20/30 without them. The ophthalmologist said I no longer needed to wear them. (I had worn glasses since I was 7)

As for the main reason I went in he waited several months before giving his recommendation. He came to the conclusion that I need to have my left eye removed.

It was a couple of months before I could get in to see an oculoplastic surgeon. He also examined me thoroughly and was of the same opinion.

The surgery is set for August 7th, which gives me plenty of time to get cold feet. Please pray that God gives me peace concerning this and if it isn’t his will that he let me know.

One thing I’ve discovered while researching this is that it’s recommended that a person not smoke because it could cause scar tissue. Fortunately I’m not addicted to smoking, but I do enjoy my pipes and especially when I’m nervous and want to mull things over.
I like my pipes bent and my razors straight.
