THANKFUL THURSDAY - appointment yesterday with specialist - a quick update and disaster relief reminder
Ok - so the appt was yesterday but I am reporting on it today so that is why it is Thankful Thursday. So at this appt. with my specialist yesterday there WAS
a bit more improvement in my vision and the doc is optimistic the improvement WILL
continue but right at his moment, it is still not good enough to return to work. However the issue of disability retirement is still a
possibility altho hopefully I will be able to return to work for at
least a few months to get some bills paid off. The issue of disability
retirement is not so much related directly to my vision altho that is a
big problem but rather the overall health of my eye which is what leads
to my vision problems - if my eye was healthier then there would be
fewer or no vision problems - I would not have missed 15+ months of work
out of the past 39 months - I would not have had two cornea transplants and two stem cell transplants - each time something like this is done to the eye there is more trauma to the eye even tho it is for a good reason. However, more trauma means the eye becomes LESS & LESS HEALTHY which would mean more transplants - more trauma - vicious circle. Also the possibility of using my own stem
cells from my left eye which is totally healthy except I can't see out
of it, is still a possibility however that would be several months away.
Next appt. with specialist is next Tuesday, May 28th.
