Patti: “Patrick, is that you?”
Standing less than six feet from Patti I flashed on memories of when we first dated over 25 years ago before Multiple Sclerosis.
Patti would remove her glasses and squint her way around. I used to joke that she reminded me of Mr. Magoo. “Magoo” became an affectionate nickname.
“Hey! Magoo.” I answered.
Her smile beamed in on ‘the shape’ that now days her “legally blind” vision masks in the blur of MS visual impairment.
While the above is how MS visual impairment impacts one family, OUR family, check out this link from the UK Multiple Sclerosis Society for the nuts and bolts of:

Speaking of vision, this able-vision caregiver and snow lover had to blink twice this morning to make sure I was not dreaming. Two inches of winter beauty dressed the day.
