My strength through out this optical journey would not have been possible without family, friends, new friends and strangers. You gave me the opportunity to concentrate on healing and to embrace the experience fully. I could feel your loving energy every step of the way. You empowered me to share my experiences and take you along for the whole ride. I truly thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for the renewed sight In my eye. While my vision may still be a bit trippy and distorted in my left eye, I see a lot clearer now - thanks to you all.
Special thanks for all of you who contributed to the Gofund, paypal or fundraiser events in LA and NYC. This was a very humbling experience for me and I will never forget your generosity. All the money raised was used for both my medical bills and living in singapore during my recovery. While I had travel insurance, which I believed would pay for some of the cost, it turns out the horror stories are true. I'm trying to fight them as I write this - will keep you posted. If they do the right thing and pay what is owed, I will make sure the money is used to give back. My idea is to produce an art show sharing my journey in a visual way and also raise a bit of awareness for retina detachment. Proceeds will go to retina research or an eye related charity. Even if they do not pay, I will find away to produce this show and share my visual experience and give back. The date I have set is Friday December 13, 2013. As many of you know 13 is my jam and this date is perfect :)
To my doctors and nurses, you delivered the goods!!! Thank you for all your hard work and putting up with my questions, requests and entertaining my humor.
Much love, light and gratitude! J
