It happened around midnight on Christmas Eve in 1993. I'll never forget that moment!
My operation took 10 hours. Very complicated surgery. I was in the hospital for an entire week, then released after I learned to walk again.
A few days after I got home, I developed double vision.
I was scared.
Back to the hospital we went, but we couldn't get an appointment until December 23. So many of the doctors we on Christmas vacation, so we had to wait a long time for that appointment. I wore a patch over one eye all that time.
The doctor said that I had some brain swelling and prescribed steroids.
So, what was the miracle? Around midnight, my double vision went away. A miracle, as far as I'm concerned.
Christmas 1993 is one Christmas that I'll never forget.
