As u all may have read, I've been denied Medi-Cal repeatedly since it was canceled last October of 2012. I was also in the beginning stages of getting laser treatments for my eyes due to the vessels bleeding (from my diabetes). Well almost a year without any treatments or checkups, my left eye started to decrease in vision because apparently the first treatment at Kaiser didn't laser all the vessels, which has now started to bleed again. This has caused me to stop driving at night and I avoid driving in the day as much as possible which really bothers me because I feel as though a piece of my freedom has been taken away. I now have to depend on my husband to drive me around most of the time. Anyhow, we looked up eye specialists and the cost, which are pretty pricey, especially when it's out of pocket. We found a place who's willing to work with us (payments/billing) because the doctor is more concerned about getting my eyes fixed. I got my first consultation & injection in my eye to dry out the blood in my left eye last Friday (the 29th) of August thanks to my mom & aunt/godmother, who gave me the $$ for it. Well my upcoming laser treatment on September the 27th will be a little over $1,066 each eye. If this procedure is not done, I can and may possibly lose more or all of my vision. This fee does not include the doctor's visit itself as well as follow up appointments to make sure my eye is doing okay. A few of my friends have urged me to set up a PayPal account so that they and anyone else willing, can help and donate. I understand that many of us are struggling and are facing our own financial debts, but any little bit helps. I just want to be able to see my 4 children grow up, as any parent would. Thank you all in advance and God Bless ♥
