Update on the Eye

Don went to the doctor today, who said he's healing well. When you look at him head on, the pupil in his right eye is small, and the one in his left is huge. The doctor said that's the injury. They had him look at an eye chart - he could vaguely see the large E, but then when they put the second chart up, he couldn't see a thing. There's a cataract forming, which is normal, and eventually he'll have to have surgery to have it removed. He asked why he continues to have nausea, and was told that's normal, too - due to the conflicting messages his brain is getting. He asked what he could do to make the nausea stop, and the doctor said, "Quit doing things like driving yourself to the doctor!" It's just going to take some getting used to.

I'm glad to hear that the prognosis is relatively good.

Thanks, Cyndi. I keep checking back here to see how he's doing.
Damn. Life ain't easy, but I think he got off with just a warning. (Even though it sounds like his personality type is "NOW.")

Thanks for the report. Don sounds impatient and eager to get on with life. That is good. I hope others will continue to pray for his recovery. jancd
