The Frustration Continues!

Life can sometimes feel like a living nightmare soap opera!  Just when you think things are status quo - after accepting what is over a period of time - a new kick comes into play.  In the last week, there have been TWO such knock-downs, one for each of our daughters:

  • One learned that her hearing has declined significantly in one ear.  Consideration of cochlear implant has been advised, which she is very reluctant to consider.
  • The other learned that cataracts are the cause of her diminished vision.  Surgery in the case of RP patients is riskier than the norm, and the opinions on their treatment are varied and horribly confusing.
Both have jobs they can't afford to lose and parents who can never stop worrying, particularly as WE get older and realize that we can't take care of their needs forever!  I guess this is a constant for most parents.  We've spent the last week researching the best retina specialists, cataract specialists, and comparing the two major brands of cochlear implants.  Confusing and exhausting!

Any personal recommendations will always be appreciated!
