My vision has improved significantly just since yesterday! I was able to read the newspaper this morning without the assistance of a magnifying glass, and when I went in to the doctor's office for a follow up on my blood tests, I as able to read a sign on the wall I was unable to read when I was in there last Thursday. So, slowly but surely, my eyes are getting better.
Today I saw a physician's assistant rather than the doctor I had been seeing. I really like this guy! He paid attention to me, examined my eyes (he thought it looked like uveitis, or inflammation of the iris, which is supposed to be treated immediately to prevent permanent vision loss; terrific), and went over my lab results using plain language I could understand. Basically, I'm perfectly healthy. Okay, yeah, my glucose is elevated, but heck, we just came off Halloween! Gimme a break! The 2-hour sugar tolerance test wasn't available yet, but he's going to call me later today with those results. That's the test that will let me know if I'm diabetic or not. Frankly, after seeing all my other numbers, I'm confident this test will come out okay, too.
I definitely feel better today. With my vision clearing, I'm able to relax and not worry so much. I'm still seeing an eye doctor tomorrow, and I might even get some drops to help speed the healing of my eyes, and I'm still pissed off about not having my eyes treated right away, but I am getting better, and hope to very soon be back to normal!
