As far as the sight goes.....I am sorry for the bad news, but you are one of the strongest individuals I have had the please to know. You will come to terms, and you will continue to be successful.

As far as your eye problem is concerned, I don't know what to say. Everything is going fine and seems under control after your meet and this sudden sight problem. I hope and pray the it will heal as soon as it can.

We can find a lot of people who are physically strong, but I'm yet to see a single man who is mentally as strong as you are. I'm sure 99% of people would quit lifting in the circumstances in which you are already in.

Hang in there and everything will be alright ...
Happy X-mas to you and your family ... Stay healthy brother ...

Thanks JB, Ravi, Jay, Mike, Steve, and Rich! You guys are making feel much better about it already. I found myself spending much of the day today sleeping as I have never felt so tired. It seems the left eye is now straining or maybe compensating for the loss of the vision in the right eye. I am also getting headaches and I normally never get them. However, it seems to have improved a touch as I can now make out faces and such if I focus hard on it. It's really blurry otherwise. I am just hoping and praying I get even just some of the vision back.

I am looking forward to doing some OHP both in front and behind for bench auxiliary Christmas day night.

I hope everyone is having a great Christmas.

Destroying those squats Jim. As someone who has 5.5 correctice contact lenses,I know it sucks to have bad vision,but ultimately,you have that focus on the iron. So much will to be one of the greats. Be well Jim!

I see you shared the mistress,and girlfriend.

I share only at Christmas time!!

It sucks to be losing my vision to a disease that is so rare I have a better chance of winning the lotto or being struck by lightning. However, like you said, I have the iron and will always be able to lift even if I was to go totally blind. If I couldn't lift, ya might as well shoot me to put me out of my misery.

Merry Christmas! And I mean merry christmas! too! Goodness gracious, I knew you would pass me in bench pretty soon, but I didn't think it would be this week! 255 for 4? Seriously? I mean I'll give that a go, but I have my doubts about pulling that off. You did it easily. Amazing.

And of course your squats are unreal. Great stuff, Jim. I agree with everyone else in that your inner strength will see you through whatever is put in your path.

Awesome stuff under the bar!

Thanks Mike!! I was especially pleased I pulled it off in the JimGym, as it's easier to bench with the crew with the liftoff and them yelling instant form cues to me. I want that elusive 3PPS bench just as bad as the 500 deadlift. That would put me in the 300/400/500 club! I also will get to use the executive washroom!!

I also appreciate the kind words and support Mike - it sure means alot to me both in good times and not so good times.
