Many of you will recall I had 2 surgeries in January to slow down the progress of my glaucoma.  Not like having open heart surgery, but still, not the most pleasant procedure.  ANYWAY, the question at the doctor's office Monday, after a couple hours of exhaustive eye exams and tests, was, since glaucoma has no cure and all the doctor can do is try to prevent further damage, when would I need surgery again.  And the answer, for now, is very good, the eyes are stable for now and probably won't need surgery for 2 years at the soonest.  VERY good news indeed….

and so I got back to work, and loaded the kiln and later had a wee toast to good health and vision :)

Oh how wonderful, Gary!!!!
I had a total freak-out the other day - thought my retina was detaching (I have eye problems) but turned out I just had a headache-free ocular migraine!!
