It's official - I CAN see

I went to the retina specialist today for the six-week follow-up after my Visudyne treatment.

First stop: Nurse Linda has me read the eye chart.

Big letters first
then smaller
and smaller
and smaller

until she exclaimed, "Wow! You just read a letter at 20-15!"

The doctor was also pleased with how the eye looked. He said that histoplasmosis cases like mine often respond favorably after just one treatment, whereas macular degeneration often requires multiple treatments. It's possible that that this will be all they need to do. I go back in six weeks for another follow-up.

Thank you to everyone who offered prayers, good wishes, and kindnesses.

That Saint Lucy - she's a peach.
