Hi Nancy,
I had to take out my bifocal lens so forgive me if I mispeall anything here.  That eye needs a transplant and I'm not resdy yet. Anyway, Chris' doctor said yesterday that he must now start speech therapy to avoid synkkinesis.  He mentioned a while back that the eye would be the last part to re-animate.  I guess we'll cross that bridge later.  He said we could get rid of the weight...maybe.

Hi RITA:   I like that his doctor wants to start speech/facial therapy BEFORE synkenesis starts !
              Yes, I think the weight coming out is dependent on the nerve working in the eye area...
              The swelling is going down quickly in my eye, the burn is starting up as the blinking decreases..
              Glad I'll be seeing the doc tomorrow ......
Wishing you healing for your eyes also,    Nancy
