We're behind you, James.

For my part I can't imagine what it must be liek to live through 17 rejection episodes. is Ramaesh offering to re-do your graft?

Hang in there

James

How are things a week on from your post?

I had a little upswet yesterday, but it came to nothing, and I am back on track.

All the best.

Jayboi (member from Cheshire) has done some work on our church website.

Any chance we could get him to do someting for the Scottish group. It would add to the chances of people finding us and we could pop in a series of links to the UK support group

Well, I could set up the same arrangement as for the Welsh group - and make http://www.keratoconus-group.org.uk/scotland available for you.

Only stipulations though would be that the national group logo lives at the top left of every page, and preferably the template down to the first "stripe" is kept.

But not a bad idea. It could certainly help those people searching for KC in Scotland.

That's what I thought. It would add to, and not distract from, the routes by which people can find the national site.

Hi ,
Just thought I'd Introduce myself; I am Gill and I have had Keratoconus for a year. Over the past three month my sight has deteriorated rapidly. I am currently waiting on a 26wk waiting list to be seen by a specialist. I am attending fortnightly eye tests at my opticians to monitor my condition. Does anyone know how i can speed up my waiting time, or is a case of grin and bare it!

Gill

Welcome to the forum. The long wait for a first appointment is probably the worst bit of all this.

All the best
