With apologies to Jackson Browne.....
I know, you're all too young to remember the song, "Doctor My Eyes" by Jackson Browne. Maybe you've heard it on an "oldies" station?? Anyway - my right eye has been REALLY bothering me for the past couple of weeks. I finally went to visit an Opthomologist (who just happens to be one of our dearest friends!) and said "Doctor, my eyes.....". Apparently, partially due to the anemia issues that I have (and because I'm so darn near-sighted), my retina is having an issue right now. So, in the interest of allowing my eye to heal, I'm on MAJOR restrictions. I'm not supposed to bend over, reach for anything, carry anything, read, stitch, compute (I did get a "pass" to check my e-mails once a day as long as I have them on a "GIGANTIC" font - whoo-hoo!) or even walk very much!
I can watch TV (as long as I sit pretty far away)...I'm burning through the Netflix instant views like crazy!
I can also whine about my circumstances...(and I've found that I'm very good at that!!) :(
I'm trying to stick with my theme of "cherish" and I am cherishing the fact that I still do have my sight, that I just bought a new pair of glasses about three weeks ago, (so, they'll still be stylish for about four more minutes until the new "style" changes), also, for our AWESOME Dr. friend who loves my eyes almost as much as I do and for my family who takes such good care of me.
Hopefully, I'll be back to "normal" in about 10 more days. Okay, let me re-phrase that, hopefully, my eyes will be back to normal in about 10 days. I don't think there's any hope at all that the "rest of me" will ever be "normal". LOL
In the meantime, I'll be swinging back and forth from whining to cherishing....
"See" you soon!!!
