EYE UPDATE

I am afraid I have more bad news regarding my eyes, which I just received during my appointment today with the surgeons. My Birdshot inflammation has now progressed to an untreatable point. It is very active right now and I have already lost about 20% in my right eye. He told me I have about a 70% chance of complete blindness at the moment. He was quite worried and concerned and upset he cannot treat it anymore and we will just have to let nature take it's course. I knew I was in trouble by the look on his face after he examined me this morning. He said here is clear and present pathology in both eyes of which there is no available treatment.

I don't know what to say that hasn't been said already, except it might be prudent to start to prepare for it. I am going to discuss it with my Family and my Uncle, whom is ready and willing to finance a career change and do whatever it takes to get it done. Not sure what career options would be suitable, but we'll figure something out for me to do. I know the Crew will always be there to help me lift under any circumstance. Last but not least, I know I can always count on you guys to be there for me.

I am also not going to sell my beloved Mustang. Like I told Josh, there is no shortage of volunteers to drive it while I sit in the passenger seat. It is now parked in my new garage. This is a dream come true after waiting 19 years for this day. I'll post up more about it later.

I also want to travel if I can. My Uncle has already told me he will take me to the UK (Liverpool) to see where my late dad was born. That is also part of the healing and forgivenss for the years of abuse I suffered.

The worst part of all this really is the likliehood, barring some sort of miracle really, that I will not be able to see my daughter get married. That is something I have been looking forward to for a long time.
Well that just sucks Super Jim! Will pray for you and the family! Hopefully it'll take it's time getting worse and not happen right away. I hope you take advantage of as many things as you can until that time comes. We at MAB and I personally will be here for you when you need! Stay strong Super Jim!!!!

I have zero back story to any of this, but just reading it gives me shivers. Best of luck sir, fingers crossed for you, and I regardless, stay strong.

Thanks for your support Jay, Rich, Chad, Mike, Brute, Fen, Steve, and Paradox. It really means alot.

I'll never forget the look on his face after he examined me. It gave me a sinking feeling. It's going to be a battle royale but I'm up for a fight. Everything happens for a reason, and I am sure I will find it out.

This benching session was all about blowing off some steam. Since i love to lift, I knew a bench PR would help make me feel better, and it did. At the same time, I wanted to get some work in, so I did triples.

I also had an appointment with my Physiotherapist after my eye appointment. Facet joint was out again. He forbade me from deadlifting and squatting in the same session ever again, whether or not it's heavy or light. I have already informed JB and he will make adjustments.

Having JB in my corner means the world to me. I really feel like the luckiest lifter on Earth. Without his help, it would be really easy to say just fuck it.

Bench Press
135 X5
155 X3
175 X3
195 X3
215 X3
235 X3
255 X3
275 X1 PR Match
285 Miss
280 X1 PR + 5lbs
Wasn't pretty, but I ground it out. I am sure getting some practice in this week on how to grind lol.
