So far, so good.
The day after my last post I had lost all but about 20% of my vision. My wife took me to two different oftomologist and both said I had a serious problem with the retina. She then was able to get me an appointment with a retina specealist i Caracas on Thursdaday, Thanksgiving Day,, The doctor confirmed that I had a separated retina and decided to operate the next day. The doctor believes I have a very good chance to recover most of my vision in this eye,
The process involved removing part of the liquid from inside the eye and insert some type of gas. Right now it is as though I am looking through trifocals. The upper part appears like liquid and in that visual zone I see verly cleary but not good defenition. In the center is the liquid/gas interface and I can see nothing. In the boiiom part of my field of vision is the gas and it is like lokking through a cloud Objects are very fuzzy and larger than normal., although withinin a feww inches of my face things are not so fuzzy. The doctor explained that eventually the liquid will return to my eye and push out the gas. This will take three to six months and then with new glasses, I should be able to see normal once again.
So, it appears that your prayers and mine have been well received.
I can not thak you all enough for your words of support and your prayers.
With my nose two inches from the keyboard I am able to see the keys more or less. I hope this message is readable. When I look at the screen, all I see is light. My son helped me to open wordpress and put the curser in the right place. He and my wife speak a little English and between the three of us we are able to read your comments. If I don’t go stir crazy, I will be back with you all in a few months.
God bless each of you. You have been a blessing to me.
