Hi Marigold
Mom went to the retinal specialist yesterday, so we didn't get to blog. Thanks for sending prayers and good thoughts her way. Her eyes were dilated nearly until after 7 last night. They took lots of photos and told mom she has wet macular degeneration in her left eye and dry macular degeneration in the right. She already knew about the dry, because she's had it in both eyes for some years now, but the left one turning wet is a new development, and possibly a harmful one. That kind leads to blindness, so she's hoping they caught it early enough to stop the progress and she can still end life with vision in both her eyes. Right now, though, it seems she has to make a choice: get the right cataract removed and wait a few months to get the left eye done, or get them both done (and not see clearly) in 3 or 4 months. The dilemma is that she will still need glasses, and it's tough to pay for one pair, much less 2 pairs in a 3 or 4 month time period. Still, she'd love to see better. Mom is a voracious reader, 2 or 3 books a week, and she's been reading the same book for a week and a half now. She also does needle crafts, crochets, and sews, so this is particularly frustrating, not having the vision to do any of it. Anyway, that's how things stand right now. Her second treatment is May 12, followed by one in June, then a final evaluation to see if it did any good.
Meanwhile, Polly got her stitches out yesterday and her doc said she's doing well for being only a week out of surgery. Mom cleaned the main aviary, the RVS room, and the outdoor groundhog pen today, so her work load at the center was partly animals, and the rest of her time was spent doing dishes and laundry.
I hope you will all forgive the c/p today, it's too much info to keep typing over and over. I hope also that you are having a good day, sunny like it is here! Hugs, Peppino
