I would love if we told each other about ourselves, and our children. How did we loos our vision or some of it.
How did your children loss their visions or some of it. Share our experience of what happened and how it happen. If it is too personal or too painful and do not wish to get into that it is ok. For me when I was 4 months old I had a brain tumor the size of an egg and they had to shrink it to nothing. It was not cancerious at all and they did remove it but the tumor messed up my optic nerve which mess up my vision. I had surgery for lazy eye in my left eye and 3 other eye surgeries but do not remeber what they all were for. They thought I would loss all my sight. My sight is stable praise the Lord for that. I was in the hospital for pneumona something close to it . I had my tonsils out at 7 years old. So I was in and out of the hospital a lot when I was young and very sick. From my tonsils I was always sick with sore throuat. When I was 21 I developed allergies, acually it was earlier then that but that is when I found out about it. When I was 30 I had my gallbladder removed. I went to Overbrook School for the blind in Philadelphia PA. I live in Reading PA. and was born and raised in Reading PA. I am 42 years old. I am blessed truely blessed. I wanted to do this to give each other insight and get to know each other. Plus I thought it might help the Moms who have children with vision problems or compleatly blind. Take care and God bless you all.
