The Living Force
Thanks for the update NewOrleans and I hope you have a speedy recovery!
Happy to hear the surgery went well! I hope your eyes heal soon, rest wellNewOrleans said:My eye doctor told me that this was not diabetes related, but still problematic. Cataracts as well as other retinal problems on the verge of getting worse. Nevertheless, a stricter diet did get it down as recommended for pre-surgery exams. My surgeon did great work and I'm in recovery. Still, I must limit my online time for a while longer. I'll have much reading to catch up on. Although I reached my online goal, the amount of the surgery, plus living expenses as I heal, is much, much larger than I anticipated. I'll find a way until I get back to working again.
One thing to report: the grass IS greener on the other side. Grateful.
Hi, I've been trying to find the link to gofundme, but it just takes me to the home page, so I couldn't donate anything, sorry.Palinurus said:According to his fundraiser page it's progressive double cataracts:
I just donated something to help him out a little. Hope all will go as smoothly as possible.I'm an artist, a designer. I've recently been diagnosed with progressive double cataracts, which is why everything is so blurry. I have a surgeon, but I don't have the dollars. My health insurance company says it's 'experimental" ( it's not, it's new and proven to restore 20/20 vision.) so they won't pay for it. I've just got to get this done. My livelihood depends on it. The surgery will cost about $4,000 and I want to have it done in about a month or two.
I'm looking for the generosity of strangers. I can offer customized avatar portraits for $100 each as a payback. Contact me and ask what it takes.
I'd be most grateful.
Wishing speedy recovery as well.
Ruth, the link to gofundme was deactivated and the account terminated when the initial goal was reached. I'm not aware of a new fundraising campaign to cover the additional costs.Ruth said:Hi, I've been trying to find the link to gofundme, but it just takes me to the home page, so I couldn't donate anything, sorry.
