    I saw my opthomologist yesterday.

    After a careful exam, the doctor told me that the retinal blisters had cleared & that there is no sign of shingles inside my eye. It's an all clear for my eyes & the disease!!!! :whew: Other than a higher risk for cataracts & some minor nerve damage my eyesight should come back to normal.

    The doctor felt those moments of blindness were from the meningitis putting pressure on the optic nerve & now that the pressure in the brain has backed off my vision should be okay. :bow:

    Ladies, of all things the eyesight thing was terrifying me the most. I really needed to hear this yesterday - a positive report.

    It's going to take a while for my vision to return completely to normal & I'm learning to use a magnifying program on the computer right now. Please forgive me for not being around as much as I usually am - that day will coming again & soon. You all will be tired of hearing from soon. :rofl:

    Just wanted to share this positive - I was so excited I broke down in tears at the doctors office.
