Unreal, you read my mind! I had that vid all picked out just before I read this post.

This is my biggest deadlift ever done last November after the Vegas meet.

After enjoying viewing about 15 or so videos when I watched this one, well all you have to do is watch it if a picture is worth a thousand words this video speaks volumes.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

Thanks OMP, Jay, Ravi, Marvin, and OR. You guys are awesome. The vids are working to help cheer me up and stay on track. Going down memory lane is helping to inspire myself to get back to lifting and to be patient before doing so, as it is worth waiting for.

Eye appointment is this morning. I will let you guys know asap whats going on.

Thanks Tom! You just might be right!

I have hope! I have hope!

Had a very interesting eye appointment today. After my examination and some tests including an ultrasound, Dr Mitchell determined I will require surgery. It is now set for Friday the 26th. He first explained to me what is going on. Sometime between my 2 week follow up appointment, when it was declared that my eye was "normal" (well, my normal) and I could resume normal activities, and 2 weeks ago, my body decided to start making some blood vessels in the eye to likely compensate for Birdshot damage. Nobody could have foreseen this, and the burst that night could have been caused by anything. This type of hemorrhage could have been caused by carrying a bag of groceries. He said it was going to burst anyway. Even rapid eye movement during sleep might have set it off.

It is somewhat similar activity to when the body makes it's own bypass to an artery blockage. It really never does a good job at it and the artery is very fragile. Well, in my case the blood vessels were very fragile. He seemed surprised that the lifting earlier that night didn't cause it to burst, considering it was obviously in a weakened state.

Well, after this discussion, I started to get emotional as we talked about lifting. He said to me that he now sees how much it means to me. I of course had a million questions and he had one answer.

YES

He told me that he will do something he has never done before for a Birdshot case. He is going to laser the eye in the OR next Friday and this will pretty much guarantee me a lifting future. The laser system in the OR is much more powerful and will be utilized in a special way, which he has never done before, during the surgery. There is no protocol for this, but he said he is comfortable with it. This will most certainly prevent the eye from ever attempting to grow these blood vessels again which will in turn make a another hemorrhage very unlikely. He said I will even be able to resume competitive powerlifting again if everything goes well in the OR and we allow extra healing and recovery time. He said he has a plan and Ihe hopes to see me lifting again in about a month at very, very light weight and I could be at full power in about 4 months. If he sees no blood vessel activity during the coming months, I am golden.

I really, truly believe in God and the higher powers and that all of our prayers and hopes are being answered. I am just really filling up with emotion about it all. Something happened in that room today to inspire Dr Mitchell to go out of his way to help me. He didn't have to do this. It will be about a 2 to 3 hour surgery that will likely restore my ability to lift and live my life the way I want, which must include lifting. I even had to sign a special consent form as there are extra risks, but we both agreed they are worth taking to give me a quality of life. He knows it and I know it.

In the meantime, he cleared me to do some light lifting and cardio in the coming week up until the surgery.

Like I had some hope with my lower back, I now have it with my eye. What a glorious day. I'll be back!!!! I know it, I can feel it now.
