Colin received a letter last Wed inviting him for a 8:30 a.m. appointment in Ophthalmology tomorrow! As we don't have any idea what is really causing Colin's sight problems it is an opportunity that we are taking up. So many people say about his sight loss that it is the brain. Well maybe it is, but there is no hard evidence to prove it I'm afraid, and as we've said before, just because Colin has a lymphoma in the brain does not mean he hasn't got something else as well! It is too easy for other things to be dismissed - that seems to be the way the medical profession deals with everything, covering up all symptoms regardless of their cause. Grrrr!
This is going to be a tremendous ordeal both for Colin and me tomorrow. If he gets anxious, which is extremely likely, he will probably be shouting the place down by 8:40! The appointment could last up to an hour and a half, so there are likely to be a lot of unhappy people in the waiting room, which at the best of times is like a bear garden. If at the end of it we know what can be seen in the eyes (if anything) and if there is nothing that can be done, well so be it. At least we shall know. But we have to try. The worse thing (or maybe not?) is that Colin is drowsy and can't keep his eyes open for examination - that would be a total waste of time and energy.
Why has it got worse? Well someone drove into me on Saturday morning so I have that to deal with as well. Thanks!! Just what I needed!
