Those blood vessels burst due to weakness and that was causing the bleeding. I had a needle treatment today and then I have to have laser surgery sometime next week. They are going to call me after new years with that appt.

I was also told I will regain some of the vision I lost recently, but not all of it. It seems as tho this is the course the disease will take over the coming years - flare up and cause damage and then give back some of the damage. Eventually, after so many cycles of this, I will likely lose all of the vision in the eyes - at least functional vision anyway. The surgeons are optimistic when all is said and done, I will retain some vision - ie - not be totallly blind, but lose enough to function normally meaning disability at some point. Just have to let nature take it's course, all the while the surgeons try to minimize the damage each time. It's going to be quite the epic battle between my immune system and the surgeons - that I know for sure.
That actually sounds like some pretty good news Jim Prayers will continue to be sent your way
