It is a gift.. it is a gift

That is how I am trying to look at my eye issues.

I got some blood work results back. They were not reassuring. I have a protein c deficiency as well as a antithrombin deficiency. My levels were approximately half of what they are supposed to be. Which makes me a stroke waiting to happen. A PE waiting to happen. Neither of those has happened yet. Just an eye issue.

These deficiencies are seen in a few things, genetics, pregnancy, birth control, acute promyelocytic leukemia, nephrotic syndrome, heart issues (ASD and VSD)...some of these are applicable to me. Some may be. Don't know yet.

What I do know- I am overwhelmed- I am scared. This is not news I wanted to get. I have to meet with more specialists to determine why- to get a course of action.
