We had my in-laws up Sunday, Sept. 11th.
It was my mother-in-laws 82nd Birthday.
She, about 2 yrs ago, was told by her doctors that she is "legally" blind.
She says she can't see anything out of her left eye!
She has some vision in her right eye!
She has bleeding behind her "good" eye, sorry I can't remember what they call that. And that is actually what caused her to be blind in her left.
She went friday to get her license renewed.
She said she told them she was blind in one eye.
She said she had to look in that little box for her
peripheral vision test, and she could see.
So they gave her her license!
I can not believe it! You can look at her and see that she is blind or at least has some problem with that eyes!
I ask you to cover your left eye,
wave your fingers off to the side of that left eye,
and see if you can see them!
At dinner she was asking what different things were on her plate. Not because she'd never had them, but because she doesn't see well!
She's not able to read anymore!
She wears sunglasses to watch their flat screen TV!
At christmas time I was sitting not 6 ft across the room from her and she didn't even know I was in the room until I spoke to her. She is on all kinds of medications for other problems. She has a pacemaker, and yet, They Gave Her A License to get in her car and drive! She claims she only makes right hand turns. Which takes her way out of her way to get where she is going....because she can't see well enough to get where she is going. And yet, they gave her her license!
I think my husband's upset with me because I find this a bigger deal then he does! I just can't seem to stop shaking my head!
Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest! I just don't get it!
