"If it were'nt fer bad Luck, I'd have no luck at all"

Thanks to the "Hee Haw" TV Show of several (many) years ago for that song...
                    "Blue, Despair and Agony on me
                     Deep dark depression, Excessive misery
                     If it were'nt fer bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
                     Blues, Despair and Agony on me!"
 
I have an intermittent problem with my left eye, it is called Chronic Corneal Erosion. I had an injury about 30 years ago...my daughters finger nail cut my left eye... the DR at the time treated it and it healed...we thought. Since then I have had a lot of problems with it collimating in 2005 with several surgeries in that eye and something called "Diamond Dusting", just a slight abrasion to the cornea under anesthesia. OK, let's be honest here...the anesthesia was eye drops to numb the eye, the slight abrasion was a frickin Dremel with the diamond cutting tip! They ground off 1/2 of my cornea while I sat there staring into that darn blue light. The pain afterwards (30 min later) was the worse pain I have ever felt in my life. I cried like a baby for 2 days! I was 56 years old folks. I don't cry!! So since then my left eye does not make tears very much, I have drops ffor the day and a thick ointment I put in at night. 
Now jump to 2010.... I now have Glaucoma in both eyes (todays tests were much better) and I have drops for that (working) but two days ago when I awaoke my eyelid was once again stuck to my eye ball...(happens every 8-9 days) and when you open your eyes ...rrrip! another tear. no problem, put the ointment in and in a day or two all gone. right....WRONG!   Soooooo.... jump to the Ophthalmologist's chair and he says... "strange the dye isn't working... tell me...do you get fever blisters?"   Why yes,  I had one on my lower lip just the other day...it's gone now. I said   "Uhuh" he whispered. "Want to guess where it went?" I now have an HSV (Herpes Simplex Virus) infection of the eye. I will be on the BRAND NEW ($$$$) MED "ZIRCAN"  "dO YOU HAVE GOOD INSURANCE?" he asked....yes thank God!
So I came home, driving the 25 miles from Gettysburg to my home. Got out of the car, looked up at the sky and asked..."Did I p** you off again?" .......... I swear I heard laughing from the clouds as I walked into the house....

RevDenny,

God isn\'t like that. He does not laugh at our afflictions. He weeps with us. He could heal instantly (and in some cases He does), but just as His Son suffered in this world, we will, too. Why? Many reasons for that question, but one is that we would learn to depend on Him and long for the Heaven/ Paradise He has prepared for us. My heart goes out to you. I know how it is when it just seems like one hard thing after another, but God is a Comforter, not a mocker. He loves you and is near to the brokenhearted. The bible also says that a bruised reed He will not break. He loves us so much that He sent His own Son to die in our place. He experienced far more pain than we will ever know. And He says, \"Come to Me all you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest.\"

BTW-We live not far from Gettysburg... Frederick.

I need to read everything I type, my original comment I had to delete because I phrased a sentence wrong. I did not mean to offend anyone with my journal entry, It was meant as humor. I do believe that God has a sense of humor after all, He made US in his image! I speak with God everyday not just pray to Him... I think that is important in my life on this earth. God has a place in everything I do. I throw comments his way all day long...whether it is a \"sorry Father\" of just a \"only kidding\" about something I said or did. Sometimes even a \"are you proud of me?\" after I did something good for someone. You see, I don\'t talk with God as a deity in Heaven... He is with me, walking or sitting beside me. He is my my Father, my friend, my instructor, my co pilot and my leader! I do ask forgiveness from all I offended, my humor gets me into trouble sometimes.

LOL!!!!! Denny, not to worry - I am in the med profession, med humor is hilarious. So sorry to hear about your left eye. You never know what kids can do to us (for me its pets, I have no kids..LOL!!). Hope things get better with it. Glad to hear that you have excellent insurance, Zircar can be a lot of $$$ as you said (AT least in NYS it is). Doesn\'t it suck that we all have to grow old and get sick.
