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.

I can understand why each surgery is weakening the eye. Yes, it would be a great help if you could work, bills do tend to pile up, don't they. I hope your vision improves.
