"GRANDMA, WHAT BIG EYES YOU HAVE?"

 
The last time I heard someone say to me "this looks suspicious" it was 2009 and I was having a mammogram.  That suspicious turned out to be stage one breast cancer.  Thank the Lord is was caught early and after surgery, radiation and medication, my last mammogram showed me still cancer free.
 
Today, I had a Glaucoma screening as part of the preventative medicine provided by my insurance.  After the screening she said "this looks suspicious"! I really don't like to hear that. I will have a couple more tests and then see what the results are and the treatment.  She said it can be treated with drops, an we have a friend who prefers surgery every couple of years to daily drops!
 
I like to be on top of things, so will find out December 13th what my prognosis is.  Anybody out there familiar with this??

  1. Oh, those are words we do not want to hear.
    I don't have info to share on this, but perhaps drops sounds better than surgery?
    I am so glad you are blessed to be cancer free. Hurray and praise Jesus.

    1. One thing I know for sure, Tanna...I'm in good hands. I speak of my Lord, of course. Yes, if the test show I have it, drops sound much better than surgery.

    1. Old age...brings a whole new variety of things...but the drops do sound better than surgery.

      Thanks for you prayers, Laurie. I am very blessed to have my sight, and think of you so often, and your daily battles. Love you.

  3. Sorry to hear about this, Wanda. How sad is it that you have to wait until December 13th to get the details. The anticipation is the worst. I will be praying.

    1. You should have seen her office today.. Like a train station. Every chair in the waiting room was full, and several standing.

      I have the tests on Dec. 4th, and results on the 13th. Why the time in between I don't know. Thanks for your prayers.

  6. When the doctor says, "Hmmm...." it doesn't usually mean anything good either.

    I hope your heart stays at peace while you wait.

      Like I mentioned to Tanna, more opportunities for grace. That's a word I love...GRACE.
