Our eyes...



Yesterday, was a long day! We had an appointment with the eye Doctor hoping to find out if there was something that could be done about the distortion that is happening with Michaels' eyesight. The way he explains how he sees is that everything is very wavy...giving objects and people a elongated hour glass look....(Something like the Dali painting where everything appears to be melting) After having several Doctors look into his eyes...this is the conclusion at the present time (we will be going to a Retina specialist) His retina lining has become covered with the protein causing a wrinkling of the lining....so when the image of what he is looking at is processed to the brain he sees things thru this wrinkled lining and it distorts the image. Simply put the retina which is like the film for your vision is bad....he needs to change the film! More tests have to be done by the specialist to see if surgery is an option....So many things will come into play with that....this is not a normal retina problem because it is damage due to the protein.. his blood counts are low....this problem will continue as long as the protein levels are out of whack (so the surgery might only be temporary) The Oncologist would have to sign off on this surgery if it can be preformed (it only takes and hour for the surgery) and because he has had problems with clotting this might be a problem....So now we will wait till the paperwork goes through the VA and an appointment is set up with the specialist....Just one more thing to add to the list!! But, my hope is that he will be able to have the surgery....even if it only gives him temporary relief from this problem....I know that I for one, will be making an appointment to get my eyes tested and new glasses....certainly gives me a different prospective on how I take care of things for myself....
Thought for the day: TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF TODAY!

I take my eye site for granted although I would be lost without it. Best of luck to you both!

I hope you get good news when you go to the retina specialist. As much as I complain with scratchy contacts I'm still so thrilled I can see. I don't know what I would do if I had more issues.

I'll keep you both in my thoughts!
