This weekend I was invited to join a private consevative discussion forum, I just made my first post there and also had to leave a personal note that I want to share with all of you, my dear friends:
Between 2003 and 2007 I had four operations on my left eye for detached retina. In the end I lost the battle and the use of my left eye. This past Friday I noted a problem with my right eye. What I can best describe as a cloud had for over part of my eye, blocking about 30% of my field of vision. By late yesterday, the cloud had grown to block about 50% and as I write these words it is now blocking about 60%. The speed at which this has occurred is quite disconcerting. I am trying to stay positive and I do have some reason to be positive. Unlike with my left eye, light does pass through this cloud, which was not the case before. Tomorrow I will see my eye doctor and will learn what the prognosis is. If there is a cure, it will most like take any where six months to a year if the problem is with the retina. If the cause is something else, my recovery might be measured in days or weeks. At this moment, I am having a hell of a time finding the cursor when I need it. so, this first post here may turn out to be my last. Hopefully not. I worse come to worse, I have already decided that I will try to hire an English teacher to come in a few days a week to read Fox News and CNBC to me so I can keep abreast of the news back home and also to read a few blogs each time from my blogroll and maybe even enter some comments for me. I humbly ask for your prayers.
