NOTICE ABOUT ME

NOTICE

Tomorrow, Friday, March 2, at 10:30 AM I will undergo the first of a series of operations/procedures on my eyes.  As you may know, I have been experiencing progressive macular degeneration in both of my eyes for several years now.

When my opthalmologist told me that the problem had started he told me that nothing could be done and that I would eventually be blind.

Since then medical science has made great progress in treating macular degeneration and while there is no possibility of completely repairing the damage already done, there exists the possibility of stopping further progress of the disease.  At the present time I have 20/400 visual acuity in my right eye and 20/25 visual acuity in my left eye.  

Tomorrow the doctors will operate on my right eye and five weeks later they will operate on my left eye and five weeks later they will operate on my right eye and continue to alternate between eyes until they think that they have done all that they can do for both of my eyes.  

After each operation my eye will be covered for several days.  During the time an eye is covered I will not be able to use my computer efficiently and hence there will be days when I do not use it at all.  

At the present time there are 230 email messages in my inboxes.  There is no way that I will be able answer more than a few before tomorrow’s operation.  

THEREFORE  

I beg your patience.  I will do my best to answer all of them, but it will take time.

In the meantime I promise you a remembrance in my prayers and I beg a remembrance in yours.
