The Eyes Have It!

On this very morning I am having the first of two unrelated surgeries on my eyes. This one is eyelid repair, and I have no idea how long it will keep me from the blogosphere. Know, though, that there may be very few, if any posts in the immediate future. I do have a couple in queue which will post at the predesignated times.

What I will miss even more than writing for the blog is reading your blogs. I hate to get behind, for it becomes almost impossible to catch up with everyone.

The second surgery is three weeks down the road. It is a corneal transplant. I have already been advised that recovery, while nearly 100% certain, is not instantaneous. So I suspect that I am going to have to be finding other modes of entertainment for the next several weeks. C'est la vie.

I wish you well, have a wonderful fall season, and hope the snow doesn't fly too early!

Yours for brighter vision, and a brigher future,

Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction. Psalm 88:9

Oh, poo! But good-o about getting your eyes all fixed up and working properly. Life enhancing surgeries fer sure. Be Well!

Oooh, I hope you are okay after all that fun. and they give ya an eye lift too while they're digging around in there. (Not that you need it, pally.) I would just think they would leave the place nicer than when they came--you know, like the rangers always say.

If you want, I'll call you and I can read all your favorite blogs to you. And then we can come up with smarty-aleck comments to write back. Doesn't that sound like fun?!! Get well soon or we are gonna have to resort to that!

What's your phone number????? ;)

Oh! Take care, and hopefully you'll soon be back all "bright-eyed." Are you having surgery for a bushy tail too?

Popping over from Duck and Wheel. Wishing you the best and prayers for a speedy recovery all the way around. A couple weeks ago eye doc told me I have beginning cataracts in the back (?) a result from all the cortisone over the years.

Feel better quick and get back to our bloggy world as soon as you can. Prayers coming your way.

Jim, thank you; I do hope to be seeing you soon!

Chuck, and I hope to see you as well!

Vee, I appreciate the prayers and the good wishes!

Grace, thank you. Perhaps I shall have a better "perspective" on life!

Lin, BBBH even suggested the "lift" to the surgeon. Well.
If I can't catch up soon I may take you up on the offer to read for me.

Shark, I do hope I'll soon be bright-eyed! Bushy-tailed, not so much.

Helene, thank you for stopping by; and thanks for the prayers and well-wishes.
When the time is right, you will find cataract surgery to be a blessing. I had both eyes done several years ago.

Rebecca, thank you for the prayers and the good wishes!

Thanks to all the readers. I do hope to be posting soon.
