Over a period of four days, my middle daughter has gone blind, in both eyes. I've never even heard of such a thing. Sat all day Saturday with her in the ER. The GP sent her to an ophthalmologist and he says it is Optic Neuritis. I researched it all afternoon into the night.
It has gotten worse daily. She said last night, all she can do is sit and hold her new baby girl. She can't even get the kids uniforms ready for school, or anything else. She is devastated - bereft. I'm not sharing any of my research with her, but taking notes. I'm trying to not catastrophize it, but it's impossible for mothers not to. Or this mother anyway.
We are going for a contrast MRI today to see what is causing it. I just hope they can figure out what is happening. If any of you have known of this or experienced it, please help.
