More About Me
I signed up for information for my mother-in-law, she has recently lost her husband and is now living with us. At 82 she has several health problems, but this seem to be the one that is the hardest for her to live with. We recently purchased hearing aids so she can at least feel some what a part of our family. To me it must be extremely frighting to be alone and not be able to see or hear well.

She is a wonderful person and has always been full of life until recently. Her health has been going downhill for some time now. She has had laser surgery on both eyes to remove cataracts and has implants in both eyes. The last eye doctor I took her to told me about the research being done in Florda. But I am in hopes that we can find someone here in Houston, Texas.
