A major step...

My distance vision has been improving and yesterday I drove for the first time in 6 months. Not far, and not on any major roads. 5 miles, round trip. I did well although it will be a while before I can go on my own. It's was very nerve racking but I did it and it's such a major step for me. It brings tears to my eyes knowing that I am close to regaining some independence again. Going out again today, a little further but still no major roads. My close up vision still has a ways to go, have a hard time seeing the speedometer clearly, so I rely on my wonderful co-pilot. I am beyond excited. So truly blessed.
