Eye Surgery


Some of you have asked why I haven't been posting many photos of Martina. She arrived from Nebraska with a large stye, she had since August 5. We immediately took her to urgent care, and it was treated with antibiotic drops. It didn't go away in a week, so we went to another doctor, and he gave her a different medication. The next Friday, we went to an opthamologist, and he gave her a mixture of cortisone and antibiotics. She has had 7 doctor appointments, and finally needed a small surgery to remove the sack the stye had made it's home in, inside her eyelid. The procedure only took a few minutes, but the worst part was a shot to numb her eye. Poor kid didn't want her picture taken, but here she is with her eye surgeon after Friday's procedure. Almost good as new, with just a little swelling this weekend!

Oh gosh, we had no idea. I'm so glad she is with you and Brad. I can't imagine anyone else continually giving her such loving care. Glad she is on the mend now. Bless you all.

I am so sorry for her. Guarisci bene, Martina.


Good to have you back in the blogsphere (how do you spell that??)

susan from virginia:

Please tell Martina I wish her well and she still looks beautiful!!


She really has had a tough go in the USA hasn't she. I can only imagine what a teenaged girl feels like starting a new school with a stye!
Hopefully all of her woes are now behind her and she will have a wonderful year with you and Brad.
