Jimmy & Dallas - October First...


Click on photo to enlarge

Jimmy & Dallas on the Alpine Pedal Path this afternoon during our 6 mile walk.
Peggy & I have taken a break from our chores today for some sunshine and exercise with Jimmy.

We got a mix of good & bad news the other day on the condition of Jimmy's eyes.
There is blood in both eyes which is blocking his vision, but in the right eye the blood is actually in the retina itself, where in the left eye it is in front of the retina.

We were told nothing can be done about the blood in the retina but, considering his age, strength and good health, it could eventually disperse on its own.
The blood in the left eye supposedly can be removed, with a simple surgical procedure during an office visit which is good news, but it was also explained to us that the existing blood is preventing a thorough examination of the left eye for other damage that might be concealed by the blood.

Jimmy has an appointment with a retinal surgeon on Monday for further evaluation, and we are hoping that removing the blood from the left eye will give him further clarity and some encouraging hope while his eyes are healing.

Jimmy is noticing improvement in his peripheal vision every day and can see some definition in things off to either side. He can walk along the street, on a sidewalk, or smooth path without much difficulty, but he can't see details like a pothole, a bump, or a rock that he might trip over. Neither can he see approaching objects like cars or bicycles until they're just a few feet away so someone needs to be with him at all times for guidance.

If he looks at vey large print from the side, like the header on the Los Angeles Times, Jimmy can make out what it says, but looking straight on he can see only vague blurry shapes, what little vision he has is almost all peripheal at this point.

We all believe his vision will eventually improve and Jimmy is just working on getting exercise and eating as healthy as possible to enable his body to do its healing work.

Obviously this is a very difficult ordeal for a young & strong craftsman who makes his living at carpentry, but Jimmy is maintaining a positive attitude most of the time which can only aid his progress.

Pablo & Stella-

I've completed this post now with the latest info on the condition of Jimmy's eyes.

Thanks for your concerns...

It seems he's making some positive progress. Here's hoping the visit to the ophthalmolgist can improve Jimmy's vision a lot more. He's a fine looking lad!

Hi Kiwi-

Nice to see you here.

Thanks for your thoughtfulness, always...

How're you guys doing?

Love,

Jim

Sounds like Jimmy is doing everything he should be. And he has good support around him. Glad to hear of the progress and good news!

thanks for you comments on my blog and for adding me! i'd add you back but i haven't figured out how to do that yet.

i have read through your archives and admired your gardens and pedaled powered machines! the washer is one of my favorites. someday (when the kids are grown and i have less clothes to deal with!)...

i hope the ophthalmologist can help drain the blood and return some of jimmy's vision...sending positive vibes that nothing else is wrong with the one side.

Thanks for the update! Just from the fact that he is noticing improvement, and doing all the right things to promote the process of healing, it sounds like his vision will continue to improve on its own. I'm glad to hear he has such a positive attitude. I will continue to keep him in my thoughts and prayers.

Just an observation--Pablo is apparently not hated by Blogger here!

Glad to hear there is some good news. The specialist may tell you that the right eye can be treated too. They can use a lazer to "zap" the blood sometimes.
Are you and Peggy taking some pesonal time? Gotta take care of the caregivers too! Lots of good energy being sent your way for continued healing.
