To my readers and friends who have been living in an upside-down universe…I can only say “hang in there, things have to get better.” I have been off-line pretty much since the “shutdown” began. I felt really weird continuing my life as if nothing is happening in the rest of the world. Maybe it was just me, but things seemed crazy out there compared to my normal three-dog days. I already worked from home and spent most of my time here. But there was a second reason. I suddenly have cataracts that are blurring my vision and couldn’t have them looked at during the shutdown. Reading, writing, looking at my laptop…well, it’s not too pleasant.
Enter the dramatic change. I had been seeing a black spot in my left eye for about a month and finally looked up what might be wrong. The next day. I had emergency eye surgery for a torn/detached retina. How did I do it? No idea. The doctor said it happens to one in one hundred people. I don’t particularly feel lucky. But I am. I did not wait too long that a repair couldn’t be made. Now, I have a blurred cataract right eye and a patch over my left.
Before the surgery, Tim and I were finishing projects around the house. I wasn’t writing but we were working together. Now, I’m forced to spend as much time as possible lying face down doing nothing. Two weeks of boredom. And what do I finally want to do? Haha…write. I’m managing a little by hand in my notebook. (Typing this blog has taken a long while.)
You may be wondering why I’m writing about my eye drama. It wanted to be real. As real as that embarrassing photo above. 😊 I’m sure the National Shutdown will soon make its way into books. I’m also certain that my experience of not being able to see will too. Next month, I promise to just share an excerpt from the new story I’m finishing: One Killer, One Ranger. A suspense story that’s fast becoming one of my favorites.
After the miracle of keeping my sight, I can appreciate the little things I do every day. I guarantee you my husband does. LOL Hopefully, I have only one more week face down on the couch. I sure hope you have been blessed with health during this time. Thanks for catching up with me today. Let me know how you’re doing and/or what you’ve been doing during this “down” time.
