Thanks for the kind words as well. I always feel blessed that I have the Crew and all you guys, otherwise the health issues might have won the battle.

To be 100% honest, the lifting isn't "helping" my eyes. It is causing a bit of damage - collateral damage might be a good word. It's not making the Birdshot worse per se, but it might be preventing my eyes from repairing damage. With that said, the eyes usually do not do a good job at repairing anyway, whether or not I lifted. The surgeons, for this reason, have not told me to stop lifting. They do know exactly what I do tho. I am also hoping the sports medicine specialist will have a workaround for the lower back arthritis. I'll find out in April.

At least I will still be able to lift without functional vision. Hopefully it won't happen until I am a really old fossil, but it could happen anytime. As far as my Mustang is concerned, there is no shortage of volunteers to drive it while I ride in the passenger seat.
Overcome my friend, overcome. If you can work through that, I can work through a sinus infection. I wish you all the best and prey that your health never keep you from the iron.

Thanks Rob. I think some time away from the deadlift will serve me well.

I may do that. I am formulating a plan on how to move forward. I have some ideas. Thanks.
