off-topic: update on my vision …

Okay, so it’s macular edema stemming from non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Basically, it’s  blisters (of fluid, not blood, but he says both eyes are pretty bad at the moment). This means there is a 70-80% chance that treatment will halt and even improve my vision, possibly even completely (but there is still a chance it will worsen). It’s too far along for the simple lowering of blood sugar to help it. They are going to try to get me into a clinical trial for drugs being tested (that they have had great results with so far) for one eye — and a different trial for the other, if they can. If they can’t get me into a trial for both, then the $2000 raised (thanks everyone so much for that, and you well-wishes!!) will go towards a shot for the eye that isn’t in the trial. It’s not a plecebo trial, exactly — I *will* be getting a drug of some kind, it’s just that there are two treatment methods and I will get both, but only one method will give an actual drug. Anyway, if I don’t qualify for a trial (I go for preliminary tests tomorrow and should know more by Tuesday), they will put me on a payment plan to pay for an injection for the other eye. Wish me luck with the testing tomorrow!! If I get into trials for both eyes, then I will give my parents $435 of what was raised (the cost of today’s exams — tomorrow’s is free), and then return the rest, dividing it up amongst everyone depending on percentage paid

Hey, all! My friend Patti has started a fundraiser to help me pay for eye surgery to keep me from going blind due to diabetic retinopathy. I am waiting on an appeal regarding getting Medicaid, but don’t have high hopes of getting it. I am uninsured and not regularly…

Got some very sweet and kind words from friends who shared the link to the fundraiser, and woke up to $690 in donations! I’m really feeling the love! <3 And I got a sizable art project offer today, one which seems like it will be a lot of fun! Today is a great day! Thank you so much, everyone who has helped me!

Hey, all! My friend Patti has started a fundraiser to help me pay for eye surgery to keep me from going blind due to diabetic retinopathy. I am waiting on an appeal regarding getting Medicaid, but don’t have high hopes of getting it. I am uninsured and not regularly employed, nor able to get to a steady job. I totally understand that many of us are strapped for cash, but if you can share the page, I’d be very, very grateful!  http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/keeping-an-eye-on-you/160871

I’m also quite willing to do $5 sketches (you would get a jpg file) and other art, and have prints available, as well as a short story collection I wrote (you can poke around http://wolfenm.com/ or message me for details) ….

Lately, in Sequential Tart ….

Forgot to post last week about my latest installment of Looking at Loki: http://sequentialtart.com/article.php?id=2560
In *this* week’s Sequential Tart I have:
-a review of Captain America: The Winter Soldier http://sequentialtart.com/reports.php?ID=9080
-and a review of Muppets Most Wanted http://sequentialtart.com/reports.php?ID=9081

SAD LOKI!! XD

AoA Loki horns finished! The wig is a bit small &#8212; keeps sliding back on my head. My hair is thin and apparently slippery, because the pins aren&#8217;t holding it in place. XD The wig cap actually made things worse &#8230; Plus the horns are a bit heavy, but if the wig would just stay put, the horns would too. Gonna have to work with it a bit &#8230;.

Every time I happened to look at my Deuce Gorgon doll, it reminded me of Stiles for some reason, so when I found another Deuce at the local Family Dollar store, I caved and bought it specifically to customise into a Stiles doll. The hair is faux fur from a dog toy, and I did touch-ups to the hair, re-coloured the eyes, and added his freckles with a Sharpie (and a couple of dabs of white paint in the eyes). (The new clothes are from a Ken doll — I didn’t make them.)


I guess this makes Deuce a Kanima version of Stiles! XD

On Harry, Ron and Hermione...

If you’re knee-deep in geekdom, then the odds that you haven’t heard about the “J.K. Rowling Regrets Hooking Ron Up With Hermione" bru-ha-ha are so remote that I’m fairly certain that they don’t make numbers that small. Meanwhile the many, many Tumblrs, LiveJournals and DreamJournals are…
