Hi everyone! I have already informed the being scanned list. I am starting to scan the following two books: "Little Black Girl Lost 3" by Keith Lee Johnson"Through My Eyes: The Story of a Surgeon Who Dared to Take on The Medical World" by Charles D. Kelman M.D.
The second book in my list here is special to Bruce (my husband) and me, because the author was our doctor. When Bruce went for cataract surgery in 1976, Dr. Kelman was the first ophthalmologist who would even consider performing surgery like this on someone with ROP; the family had sought several opinions.
When Bruce developed a cataract in his other eye in 1989, he suggested I go with him to have a thorough eye exam, since I had been told I had cataracts in the late '70's. I also have ROP.
After our exams, the schedule for surgery was set up for both of us. Since Dr. Kelman couldn't see behind my cataracts, since they had been developing for years, he left it entirely up to me as to whether I wanted to go through with the surgery. I decided to, and am glad I did, because I got back the best I ever hadd: light, shadow and bright color perception. Bruce's surgery was successful both times, although, without lens implants glasses are even more important to see as clearly as he used to.
This doctor was the best, because he was the one who invented the modern technique for cataract removal called phacoemulsification.
Now that I'm made this post into a "book", (smile), due to it's length, I'm finally done.
