MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - After suffering a major foul ball injury at a Montgomery Biscuits game in mid-August that ruptured her left eyeball, Megan Floyd knew that losing her vision was a possibility. So, when she had to have her eyeball completely removed last week, she said it wasn't so hard to swallow.
"It was okay because I always knew there was the potential for it to happen," Floyd said.
So, now her focus is on moving forward.
"I have to relearn how to drive," Floyd said. "I haven't been driving much because I need corrective lenses, but once I can, I will have to relearn to drive and to things with one eye."
Floyd also said she has had to adjust to have a medication regiment each day to keep up with her scheduled doses. However, there is something she is looking forward to.
"In about five weeks, I am getting a prosthetic eye," Floyd said. "That will help me be able to move on."
Floyd said once has her prosthetic eye, she will be ready to go back to work and feel more comfortable going out without being self-conscious. As she heals, she said she still holds no anger for what happened to her and only continues to hope that more thought will be put into netting placement at baseball games.
Floyd said she is extremely thankful for the support she has received from her new husband, Jonathan Rethford, other family members, friends and co-workers. She also said she is thankful for the support her medical donations page has received.
The Montgomery Biscuits did not want to comment on this story. Floyd and her family said they have not heard from the organization.
