Thanks to all of you who kept me in your prayers 6 months ago when I had the “Pucker” on my retina removed. At that time, they said that for some reason cataract development would accelerate. Well, it did. Tomorrow morning, I will be having cataract surgery on my left eye. The retina has been healing for 6 months and the okay was given to have this surgery.

I am ready for it. I have seen “bi-winged” birds and extra stop lights, extra headlights on cars and other double “ghost images” because of the blurred vision. I have been struggling to see my monitor to produce my blogs. The size of the fonts has been increased to assist my ability to read the screen. Even with that, it has been challenging at times. Two blogs are scheduled; one for tomorrow and one for Tuesday. Hopefully, that will give time for this new surgery to heal.

I have also not visited as many of your blogs recently like I would have enjoyed because of this situation. Expect visits again, soon, Lord willing.

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow, June 24th, if you think of it. I am not expecting any problems, but any surgery has risk. The Lord already knows the outcome and I am trusting Him to be right there with me through this.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; (Philippians 4:6 NKJV)

I will sing to the LORD, Because He has dealt bountifully with me. (Psalms 13:6 NKJV)

Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together. (Psalms 34:3 NKJV)

And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” (Matthew 21:22 NKJV)

The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made them both. (Proverbs 20:12 NKJV)

He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see? (Psalms 94:9 NKJV)

“For His eyes are on the ways of man, And He sees all his steps. (Job 34:21 NKJV)

“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. (Job 42:5 NKJV)

Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law. (Psalms 119:18 NKJV)

  1. Update – 6/25. All went well. Went to Dr today for a follow-up visit. Says it is looking good. When they tested my vision, I only missed 2 letters on the 20/20 line. Wow! Last week the Big E was not clear. The colors are so brilliant and bright. Can’t wait to go birdwatching and see just how beautiful God’s creation is.
    Also, thanks for all your prayers. I could tell that people were praying for me. I stayed very calm while they were working to get the IV in. 4 tries with 4 nurses..Normally I fall apart when that happens.
    Thank you all.


  2. Lee, Praying for you this morning as I watch the birds in our yard. Thank you for the wonderful verses that you posted. May God bless and keep you and make His face shine on you and give you peace. Praying for excellent surgical results.
    Thanks for your blog.
