Scary


It's really scary how fast my vision is decreasing. I found today I can no longer read street signs until I'm right on top of them and still sometimes I can not read them even then. My surgery is set up for the first eye on Sept 21 and the second eye on Sept 28. I hope I can still see by that time. I just got home from the SPCA. They had this one cat there that really had an attitude when it was with the rest of the cats, but it was as sweet as can be when it was allowed out of the cat room by himself. The little dog that they say is not adoptable because he snaps at people is starting to get to know me and let me pet him today. I really do enjoy the animals. My cats can always tell when I've been around the other animals. I'm having trouble eating again. I guess when I have a lot going on I just have those "old" problems again. I saw a friend that I had not seen since Chris' memorial service and she barley recognized me because of how much weight I've lost. Funny thing is I still want to lose more. My best friend is gripping at me because she know me and my food issues too well. On the bright side a friend of mine gave me a beautiful framed 8x10 of Chris' with some of his friends. It really meant a lot to me.

Won't it be wonderful when your two surgeries are done and your vision is clear again? It will happen! :)

I am new to your blog. My sight has been going slowly as well and then all of a sudden I couldn't read a book anymore. Corrective lenses has reopened that world up for me. Hugs. Tammy

That's a really nice gift, the framed photo. You clearly have people "in real life" and on the internet who care a lot about you. Keep on hanging on, Wanda. You can survive all of this. I know it.

Wishing you well,
NOS

I'm glad the surgery is scheduled for so soon. Life will be at least a tiny bit easier with better vision. I hope other things will go well for you, too.
