Brother update.

Alwyn is currently under general anaesthetic in New York, having reconstruction to the floor of his left eye socket.

They are using a combination of titanium and plastic to hold his eye in the correct place for the rest of his life.

Whether this will lead to the  eventual restoration of single vision ( as opposed to double – or to use the correct term, diplopia ) as well as normal coordinated movement with the other eye, plus his losing the numbness in his cheek and forehead, remains to be seen.

I wish him all the luck in the world for a positive outcome.

  1. Hoping surgery went well yesterday thinking of you Alwyn, sending lots of love to you, Nadia and kids too. Cressida and Toby xxx

  2. Love you Russ – thank you for being there for me in my hours of need, on the day of Alwyn’s accident. I felt so much comfort knowing you were only a phonecall away to help me understand any ophthalmic jargon that was inevitably thrown my way.
    Love and appreciation your sis Nads.
