It’s Me!

I’m taking a few minutes to sit up, with my head tilted, to write you all a little note. I’ve decided that I am a Blog Addict! I really miss writing each day and sharing my little corner of the world with you all.

I have been a very good little girl, lying here, on my side, resting. I believe my eye is doing well, but I am still having double vision when the eye is not patched and there is occasionally quite a bit of discomfort.

Still I feel incredibly lucky on many levels. I feel lucky to live in a country with some of the finest doctors in the world. In fact my surgeon is doing research now that may help restore vision to the blind.

I feel lucky to be married to a man who would drive 1200 miles to get me to my doctor, and to cook and clean up meals so that I can rest and heal.

I feel lucky to have a daughter and husband and M, who came and made my Christmas Eve dinner! I felt loved and cared for, even if it was hard for me to lie still.

And I feel lucky to have my pups who have taken such good care of me.!

  4. I am just back from our Christmas holidays to the Ardennes where we celebrated with our son, DIL and her parents. There was no internet connection so I didn’t know at all what happened to you ! Must have been horrible ! I am happy that the surgery could take place in time, I just learned about a retina detachment because of the FIL of my son, it happened to him not long ago in the Domenican Republic, imagine ! Fortunately he found a good surgeon and he is OK by now. I hope your eye will heal quickly too ! I see nevertheless you had a nice Christmas. I had a very nice one too !
