Dan says he began to experience “dark, blurry spots” in this eye last week and when he went to the doctor Thursday … he was told his retina was detaching.
Rep. Crenshaw says, “Anyone who knows the history of my injuries knows that I don’t have a ‘good eye,’ but half a good eye” … making his prognosis incredibly scary.
So, Dan underwent emergency surgery Friday at a VA clinic in Houston, and says the doctors put a gas bubble in his eye to act as a bandage for my retina … which means he has to rest face-down for about a week, unable to see anything.
He says that he’ll be effectively blind for about a month, so he won’t be doing any interviews or social media posts except to update on his health.
Crenshaw’s staying positive though, adding … “I have gotten through worse before, and I will get through this.”
As you may recall … the Congressman gained wide attention and popularity back in 2018 when he was running for an open seat in Texas’ second congressional district, and was the butt of a Pete Davidson joke on ‘SNL.’
