This morning I am off to visit the retina ophthalmologist for an eye exam. One doesn't need to go and get tests to know that the vision is diminishing but in my opinion it is important to go and have a consultation - I have had secondary complications - macula edema & cataracts - when are those taken care of with retinitis pigmentosa is always a more difficult decision for the doctor and patient. I also have had a lot of flashing lights and floaters going around in the center part ... at times I wish this crazy little vision that sometimes just complicates things would leave ... but then I also am grateful for the added help it gives me. The roller coaster ride of retinitis pigmentosa!
Today I have chosen to take a cab and have this cute little girl as my partner.
I have great family and friend support and any would join me for this appointment if I asked ... but for some reason today I am choosing to venture there with Cricket by my side.
Following the appointment I have a lunch scheduled with friends and we are having some friends over for dinner so it will be an enjoyable day.
