This is a very short blog to list another improvement caused by staying with this, living with this monster every day, and simply staying alive to enjoy the events that can happen in life.
Two weeks ago this minute I was under general anaesthesia having the muscles removed from my eyeballs, shortened, and sutured back on. Over many years, my double vision caused by MS, had become so bad that it was almost at right angles, somewhat corrected with twenty-six prisms in my glasses. I have worn glasses for sixty years, but after surgery I woke up repeartedly saying "This is amazing!". I was seeing only ONE of everything! We came home with orders NOT to put on ANY glasses for two weeks and he would send a note to my ophthalmologist not to put any prisms in my new lenses. I drove the next day - no glasses. On my post-surgical test I read the chart well enough to pass my driver's test. Today we go for our annual (bi-annual for me) refraction (eye test).
Two weeks later, I am still just looking around enjoying the sight. By the way, the following Monday my anaestesiologist called and asked what we are doing. He had been thinking about me all weekend - he had never heard of anyone coming back so far from MS. I gave him our website and congratulated him for being such a courageous man and open-minded doctor.
So, as always I say: keep at it! It can really, really pay.
