Each day we face new challenges. I strongly believe these were created by us to learn important lessons in life and grow through them. Sometimes we get to repeat them because we either haven’t kept what we learned the first time or there is something new to be learned from a similar challenge.
Today I get to repeat a major challenge in my life, and struggle through to the other side. My hope and prayer is that I will learn the lessons and keep them so that I don’t have to repeat this again in the future.
Most of you know that not long after my cataract surgery in 2010 in my left eye, I suffered a detached retina. Thankfully, six months after a vitrectomy and laser repair, I was able to see 20/20 again in that eye. Well, I had cataract surgery in the right eye on April 16th, and all was going well until Sunday evening, when I saw the same symptoms of detached retina – so Monday I saw my ophthalmologist who told me I would have to have the same repair procedure on the right eye. Today, I get to have that procedure. I hope it goes as well or better than the first, and that recovery is faster!
