Hi folks,

I am happy to say my opthamologist says I'm very lucky,after examining my eyes. I replied that I am lucky, but I'm working real hard to make that luck. He laughed.

My dad died of diabetes, so I don't take my luck for granted.

Best regards, EngineerGuy

My ophthalmologist always seems surprised that after twenty years as a diabetic I have no retinopathy, macular degeneration, cataracts etc. Of course, I almost dropped dead from a heart attack but you can't have everything.
