OK, lets start with me. I have had some stress added to my world. Nothing like what my husband is going through, but certainly has added to our imperfect world. Lately I have felt that wow I just can't see very well. I felt I really can't see near or far so WOW these soft contacts of mine really need to be looked at.
|When I tell people they immediately look at my eyes.|
I promise you my eyes look totally normal.
Keratoconus is an inherited disorder and we have looked back through my family tree and to our knowledge we don't have any ancestors that have gone blind. Because it's a degenerative disease the concern is how much worse is this going to get? That is the question we will never know. I hope this is as bad as it will get, but there is a potential that I could slowly (hopefully it's very slow) go blind.
Good grief I have way too much scrapbooking, quilting, photography, yardwork and decorating my house to do not to mention all the fun things in life I look forward to and I need to be able to see such as my kids growing up and starting families of there own. This just can't be happening. So that is when I asked the magical question. "What is the treatment for this"
Now for Fred. Well he feels like a million bucks. Has not felt this good in a really long time. So we did a PET scan and those dang tumors in the liver and lungs are trying to grow. So we could wait and just watch, but our Oncologist felt it would be better to hit them when they are as small as possible.
