I was blind, but now I see!

I went to the doctor yesterday morning and received the wonderful news that my eye sight is coming back!!! I went from only being able to the "E" to being able to read almost the entire eye chart. PRAISE GOD! My doctor was so impressed with how quickly I am getting vision that he called in other doctors to see my progress, ha!

I still have a couple more weeks of eye drops and no contacts, but I should be in the homestretch now. I should continue to gain vision in the next few weeks. My next appointment is in 3 weeks and I should be able to get my new prescription.

God is so good. I'm feeling incredibly blessed, relieved, and thankful today. I am indebted to all of you for your encouragement, support, and kind words. I am eternally grateful to my family for their prayers, phone calls, Paula Deen mac and cheese dinners, and for closing the curtains and dimming the lights in my presence. And last but certainly not least, I am forever appreciative of Garth. He held my hand and led me countless places when it was too bright and I could not see. He brought home flowers after my surgery, though they didn't stand a chance in our dark apartment. He watched hours on end of HGTV, cleaned and did all the laundry as I recovered. He never laughed at my eye patch (though he did take pictures). His endless concern for my comfort, his prayers, his meals, his love, and his strength was a true testimony of the man of God he is.

I am so glad that you are getting your vision back! I know it is comforting when there is someone there who helps you like Garth did!

I now pray that my friend who had a tumor removed will gain back parts of her vision.
