    Post I learned a lot from CA.

    Some of you may know, I have had a vision issue for a while, and now I have to have surgery where they take the same thing they stick in your knee for surgery, and use it in your eye to close off the bleeding vein, and clear the blood.

    Fun? Oh yeah.

    I'm 1-1 for surgeries.

    Almost didn't see '07 because of one surgery, mid '08 found me with an infection, and those with diabetes know those go over so well, lucky that was dealt with, but could have been worse.

    Let's see what '09 throws at me?

    Made my Will out last night. (got a lot of shit to leave behind. never realize that until you take stock, hm.)

    I've learned quite a bit on this site, and visit it daily. Hopefully I'll continue after tomorrow to achieve the potential I've finally unlocked inside.

    If not, it's been a pleasure.

    I'll post in 3 days, if I'm able.

    I've survived (really good doctor indeed).

    Now I'm temporary a pirate, until I go see him tomorrow.

    At least I don't have to walk around looking at my feet (the doctor said if the the blood was worse that he'd have to use a gas, which would have me looking down for a week.)

    I'm still with you, and my journey has just begun!

    Thank's all. CA FOR LIFE! Mine, that is.

    Seriously, congrats for getting through it. I have posterior uveitis mainly in my left eye with loads of floaters, if they get worse and my brain can’t filter them out they will have to be sucked out. Anything to with eyes is such an ewwgh factor with me that stable is fine.

    Feel you, once time I got eye burn caused by soldering rod heated by gas torch. Oh yeah, I had a cool evil looking eye which hadn't any eye white and blood was pouring everywhere and funny experiences in hospital I'm glad your surgery went well, but why you had problems with eye vein?
