YES, I will have to have a Vitrectomy in my right eye. No choice. The Retinal Specialist is a very nice man, I truly like him and trust his expertise. Surgery is being scheduled and I will go to my Primary Doctor very soon to have blood work and EKG prior. Laser Surgery in my left eye in two weeks as well.
I have educated myself on the Vitrectomy and I am fine with having it done. I would lose vision and possibly blindness in that eye if I do not have the surgery....SO, that is a no brainer :)
I am overwhelmed with gratitude......I would not have the strength I do now if it wasn't for ALL of YOU, my friends whom I just love and treasure, admire. Saying "Thank You" doesn't seem to be enough. All of you mean more to me than I could ever express.
I look forward to being able to see without this "Web" of blood that I have had for the last 13 months.
The Doctor told me that this isn't my fault......"You were dealt a hand, called "Diabetes".
Grateful for this Technology. and most of all my friends and loved ones. Thank You.
PatientX....I will take it all!! Thank You!!
You will be in my thoughts on the 28th, and I'm hoping for a good outcome. Vision is such an important sense to us, and I'm heartfelt in hoping for better vision for you! Hugs! Natalie ._c-

Please add my best wishes to all the others. We're all with you on the 28th.
Hang in there. Prayers are with you.
Thank you Trudy and Tom....I appreciate your support and wishes. I am going tomorrow to have Laser on my other eye. Getting ready in my mind for the 28th. The recovery is what has me scared, not able to see at all out of this eye.....but, I am just telling myself it is temporary. xo
Good luck Robyn.... Your a trooper! Don't forget the Faustman lab when you return!
Thank You Gary!!
I'll be praying for you Robyn that all goes well for you!
