Have just taken my Mum for yet another injection of 'Lucentis' into her left eye as she has macular degeneration.
This mother of mine has had 20 or so of these injections spanning the last three years and each time we go I am amazed by her courage and fortitude.
Every time just before, she always says, "I hope this is the last one".
She knows damn well it won't be though as the doctor has explained to her she must continue with them in order to retain any sight. Mum is blind now in her right eye so to remain independent (living alone) she must submit.
Given that she is now 86 I am proud of this strong loving woman with whom I share a wonderful friendship.
