My best friend of 38 years just lost her total vision due to a StaphG infection. She was released from the hospital last week. She has a very supportive husband that is there for her & she is thankful for that. She has worked all her life & is use to be being indepedent. This has been a total shock for her(she lost the vision in both eyes in 24 hours without warning). Are there any suggestions to help her adjust to her new life? She has a great attitude but I know it is going to be frustrating for her. She did have a visit from a worker & she supplied my friend with a white cane & told her the proper way to use it. Other than that nothing else much was said or done during that visit(other than she should sell her house and move to the city..she is in a bit of a rural area). Hopefully the worker will have some suggestions this week when she visits my friend. Anyone have anything that you could share as to what made your transition a bit easier? Thanks so much.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
