My wife has lost her vision after 47 years due to complications with a brain abscess. I feel she is starting to lose hope and the tears seem to come on a daily basis. I know you are not a psychologist, but having gone through this
tragic event, do you have words that I can say to comfort her during these rough times? It tears me apart to see her go through this, and I am pursuing options and consultations to see if there is anything we can due to restore some vision, but am realizing we may have what we have. I have a great network of family and friends whose support has been amazing, but at the end of the day, I need words of comfort and encouragement that I seem lost on. Any advice would be appreciated.
My only other thought as I read your email was to make sure she has the medical support she needs during these changes. The vision loss she is dealing with is enough to cause some serious depression, but I can't imagine the impact a brain abscess has had on her chemical balance. Perhaps a candid conversation with her doctor about this could lend some physical/chemical support her body needs.
All I know is God's grace shows up when we need it most, and that is my prayer for both of you. Bless you, brother, and give your wife a huge "thumbs-up, you can do it" from me!
And now the beans are officially spilled.
