Eyes (post #7)

Today I am grateful for my eyes. I have horrible eye sight on a good day! And I have what's called
Keratoconus (a degenerative disorder of the eye in which structural changes within the cornea cause it to thin and change to a more conical shape than its normal gradual curve.) So it's not like I didn't appreciate my eye sight already, but then I got a corneal ulcer. For the last 3 weeks I have been trying to deal with and fix that! I had to do drops every 15 minutes for 2 hours, then a drop every 20 minutes. Then every hour for 24 hours. Yep all night long! (We set the alarm and woke up every hour. And of course it's the only night that the kids have ALL slept like ever!!!!)

Well Then I had to do drops every hour during the day and ointment at night. Then that changed to antibiotic drops and steroid drops 4 times a day and finally today........It's all better!! A little scaring but nothing bad!

I have been to the eye Doctor 5 times, and he has been wonderful (A shout out to Dr. Broidstein!!) And spent who know hos much, BUT I CAN SEE AND IT DOESN"T HURT!!!

I LOVE my eyes. I LOVE the sense of sight. I LOVE that I don't have to have friends drive me around (light sensitivity) and I love that they were willing!

I am so grateful that Heavenly Father gave me sight!
