By viewing my over 1,500 pictures on my computer and disks we discovered yesterday that between the year of 2006 and 2009 I had Ptosis of the right eye. then in remission and i was ll bright eyed and bushy tail for a year. Up until Ashley asked me "Mom why aren't your eyes open? Open them" And i could not function my eyes to open and close them they simply remained Closed. the left eye more so than the right. the right seemed almsot normal.

The diagnosis Myasthenia Gravis is a Neurological/muscular disease. It worstens progressively but can be treated with medication.

I'm going to show you pictures that share this theory. So it appears I've ahd it for some time. Today, almost 1 week after beginning a drug called Cellcept and having IVIG treatment Mon, tues and wed my eyes are OPEN. I feel terrific.





October 2011 After Ashley noticed my eyes. Same day.

    I noticed the droop, but attributed it to your legal blindness. In your background photo here, we can see how wide open your eyes are naturally.
