A Couple of Things
Just wanted to update you guys on why it’s been slow here the last couple of days. First of all, I had cataract surgery a month ago, and was making a great recvoery, with much improved vision when a large floater broke loose and anchored itself directly over my pupil. This has compromised my vision greatly, and apparently, there is nothing to be done about it. I may consult a retinal specialist later on, when I see how well I adjust to my now severely limited vision, but I’ve been told that type of surgery is very risky, and I may not want to consider it. This wouldn’t be as bad if I could use my other eye at all, but I don’t. So I am now restricted in my actions, and even driving has become a challenge. I can still use my computer, but not for the number of hours I was used to spending here. THIS part will get better, though. I’m not going to give up, believe me. It’s just been hard to spend much time here, and I’ve been going back and forth to various doctors about this problem.
Then, late yesterday, my mother (who lives in a nursing home) had a bad fall and was taken to the ER. I wasn’t able to drive after dark, so I couldn’t get over there, but she has broken both her wrist and her hip, and is scheduled for major surgery for hip repair/replacement today. I can drive to the hospital this morning, in daylight hours. It’s close, and I can take little back roads the whole way, so it should be all right. (My eye doctor says I’m just to avoid driving very far until I get used to this issue and more comfortable with seeing “around” this blockage, so I’m not totally crazy in driving over there. I just have to be cautious). I will be there all day, and I’m not sure what the rest of the week will look like. My mother is 89 and has Parkinson’s, and I’m very worried about her recovery from this, so I will probably be over there a lot during the next few days.
So, if you wonder where I went, now you know. But I will try to post in the evenings when I’m back home. I have a few more books to get reviewed, for one thing. Take care of yourselves, O Wonderful Followers!! I’ll be back soon, I promise! In the meantime, stay safe!!
