Been to see eye specialist this morning for the results of my Glaucoma tests.
Good news no sign of it in either eye and pressures are now reading normal. In he's opinion my fluctuating eye pressure is being caused by my AS inflammation which shows that the Enbrel is not bringing it right down. Will pass this information on to my Rheumy for my next visit in May. He has give me a supply of Maxidex as I'm hovering on another Iritis flare he said it might not develop but have the drops ready in case.

Or it could be my urgent need to have a ciggy pimp floor only joking 1 month now clap clap

oooo, that is rather scary, Kevin. frown Darn that illness! <hammering it down for you!>

But still good news, too. I am very glad you do not have glaucoma. Wish the Iritis could find a new home, too.

Kevin, good news from you on two fronts then - no glaucoma and no ciggies! YAY!!!

Sorry to hear about the incipient iritis, tho. Hope it doesn't actually develop.

Warm hugs,

Hi My Sweet Boy!

Yes take care of those eyes!

I know I am becoming blind as a bat..we went to an indoor arena football game on monday where the field is only half the size of a real field and I couldnt even see what the players were doing..so I just watched the people around me..couldn't even see the cheerleaders scanty little bodies..lol

YAY on being a month free clap that is a HUGE deal I know with many friends that chain smoke.

Keep up the good work!

Hugs

Hi Kevin,

Hey, great news on no smoking. Quitting is easy, I have done it many times crazy 1 month is really a big milestone. Just keep doing what your doing. Buy a nice smoking jacket with the money you are not spending on ciggys. Hope the eyes settle down and hope they are going to monitor the pressure. Wife almost went blind last year because of eye pressure coming from extra spinal fluid. Had a spinal tap and is now on medication and doing fine. Good to hear you don't have glaucoma. That would be bad.
