Monday, February 11
Well, it's Monday morning and I am feeling surprisingly chipper. I have, for the first time since Alice arrived home, made it out for a walk and it felt great! Our aged labrador was incredibly excited, and whiffed and wuffled her way along the bush roads for half an hour, soaking up all the exciting doggy smells. I popped Alice in the Ergo (the best baby carrier in the world!) and we had a beautiful stroll in the early morning sunshine. Mind you, we live on the side of the hill and I must admit that my lack of fitness was beginning to show on the trek home, but thankfully the trusty aged lab pulled me up the hill and I made it back home OK.
Now onto my silly eye disease - I have had two people email me in the past 24 hours who also have AZOOR!!! This is incredible, as there are so few of us about. I have emailed both of them back and it is fantastic to be able to chat with people who are experiencing the same things. Putting the word' AZOOR' on my blog has meant that it is showing up in search engines, so I imagine this is how these ladies found me. BTW - this is, strangely enough almost an exclusively female disease. Of all the people I have corresponded with over the years since my diagnosis, only one has been male. And here's another interseting AZOOR fact - the BBC did a TV series a few years back called 'Second Sight' starring the incredibly yummy Clive Owen. In this series, Owen plays a police detective who is going blind due to, you guessed it, AZOOR!!!! And to think I was a big fan of the show before I ended up getting the dratted disease. Funny things happen sometimes don't they???.....
