It's dreary and rainy here, but I am selfishly thankful that Hurricane Sandy missed Nova Scotia.
Thankful for lots of things, even though I am feeling very sorry for myself. I had emergency eye surgery on Friday to repair a detached retina. It was caught in time to prevent blindness, but not soon enough to repair with laser surgery. So....full blown operating room surgery...and now I am home hoping for a speedy recovery. Patience is not my strength.
I can work for a limited time on our laptop, but my desktop computer is a no go zone right now...too bright for my eye to handle. No photography. No sudden movements. I can only sleep on my right side (doctor's orders) which is causing great pain to my bad hip.Every time I blink it hurts. Boo! No one needs to feel sorry for me, because I'm looking after that well enough myself!
The good news is that I don't need to invest in a Hallowe'en costume this year. My eye is one scary sight! I won't be updating the blog for a couple of weeks. Next time you hear from me, hopefully I'll be saying I can see again!
