My father's eye operation - part two
November 12, 2011 12:38pm CST
Some days ago I started a discussion about my father's eye operation and the problems he experienced after the operation when he got blind. I want to thank all of you for your support and your prayers, my family and I really appreciate it Today my mother called and she had great news - the situation has improved and my father is able to see the largest letters on the eye chart if the eye chart is close to his face. The doctors say that he has to be patient and that the improvements will happen very slowly, but we are just very happy and grateful for the small improvement that already happened. Which things are you grateful for today?

I hope the doctors are right and his sight will continue to improve and get better and better. I don't know what your dad exaclty had but I don't have the same experiences. I am grateful if I have less pain and can sleep at night but if so it's not thanks to the doctors. Their only care is if you payed the bill.

I also hope that the situation will continue to improve. It will be a gradual process and it will take a while before we will see any big improvements, but we are happy about the improvement that already happened. I think he has a pretty good doctor. In my country we pay for medical care through the taxes, so we never have to pay the doctors directly. The taxes are extremely high, but it is nice that we don't have to worry about paying the bills when we get ill.

hi porcospino I am glad your father is showing that much improvement as it will improve gradually I am told. for me I have got my blood sugar readings down to really good ones with leaving out stuff that spikes my blood sugar.also that while its dark and gloomy its not raining yetlol.

Yes, I think it will be a gradual process and it takes a while before his sight gets better. He might have to to live with some problems for the rest of his life and have to get some low vision aids to do the things he was able to before his surgery, but we are still very happy, because it much better than the alternative (permament blindness) He is allowed to leave the hospital now and sleep at home instead, that is also very positive and a step in the right direction.

Yes, we are very happy. Even if it isn't much it is a start and hopefully his sight will improve more in the future. He is a little impatient and he wants to get well NOW, but I don't think that is realistic, because the improvements happen quite slowly.

Good to read this update and know things are improving. I will be Praying as I know eyesite is a vital thing for sure for everyone involved. I had to have Cataract surgery myself over 2 yrs. ago and what a godsend it was. It is nice to be able to see and not have to wear glasses except for really small print, and they are the lowest form or reading glasses you can buy. Will be continuing to pray, and things are looking still great on my end as well. Not quite healed yet with the leg issue, but it is getting closer. Knowing and believing God is always in control.
