Wait and See ?

I must start this entry with an apology for the lack of postings over the recent past. Unfortunately I have had another emergency visit to the hospital. On Monday I suffered a further major bleed in my left eye. This time it was so bad that it managed to detach the retina and I was informed that if I didn't have surgery straight away than it was unlikely that I would ever regain the sight in that eye again.
Next thing I knew I was being wheeled into an operating theatre- from there on I remember nothing. When I woke up I could still not see anything out of the eye and it felt as if someone had been playing marbles with it-however the Nurses and Doctors were first class and I now have to play a 'wait and see' game- ie: If I Wait I Might See.

Wow - that's alarming news on the one hand but very good news that the good old NHS managed to sort you out so quickly.

We'll keep our internest fingers crossed over here for you. Good luck fella.

Hope things get better soon.

My mum had something like this happen and it took quite a while but her sight returned eventually.
