I am missing you all SO much and had to try to come in and say hello.
The spider bite is pretty much gone. Still a mark there and a bit of itch, but much better than before.
Now the other issue of the eye condition I have is much more complicated to handle. It is called Map Dot Fingerprint Dystrophy. Along with that I also have corneal erosion which makes the dry eye syndrome worse.
I have had this since the age of 15 or 16, so I am used to not seeing clearly, but my right eye has always been the worst and now I can hardly see out of it, thus my absence.
We are going to try a new drop and see if it helps, but I dont hold much hope for it. Trying to focus out of my left eye that is not clear either, but better than the right, gives me headaches, so I am trying to do all I can to remedy this. On Jen's last eye doctor visit, hers told her she is in the beginning stage of this also. 😢
I will try to be here as much as I can, but it might be awhile before it is full time again.
I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who is making sets for me in this absence and to Huronna for saving all of them for me. I have not looked at them yet and it will have to wait for my next time here, but I know they will be gorgeous. All of you make such beautiful things. Thank you again.
You did shock me when I saw you name I wondered if it was Phoenix again. I'll still keep collecting, that reminds me I have to add your name to an AD WWO before I forget. Stay safe and I'll talk to you soon.
Hi Anita, I was so surprised to see you here, and I am so happy that you could come in even if just for a few minutes, I am also hoping the new drops may work, and most of all Anita, just take care of yourself... I have missed you also and was so happy that Huronna could update us... Big Hugz
Bite is healed and gone, but the vision is the same. I am not holding much hope for much of a change.
October I will have a new appointment with the VA for new glasses. I go to them even though I have a specialist because my glasses are so expensive I can't buy them. I always take my prescription from them to my other doctor so he can tell me if it is right or not. Yup, I know, I'm bad, but Heidi's Joe goes to the VA also and she knows those trials. Lol
In the meantime I try to do what I can, but so far I haven't read any of my books or done any stitching, which drives me nuts. Lol
I'm trying to get this figured out so I can get back here before our world traveler goes off on a cruise. I feel like I have left her in a bind here and I'm so sorry about that, but I always knew this condition would cause problems as I aged. I was told that by the time I reached my late 20's 😢
Heidi, you don't have to keep saving for me if you don't want to. I so appreciate it and I am going to open the laptop this weekend and try to get one PM emptied out into Fotki and change my clothes.
Silk and Flagryl, You don't know how much I appreciate the work you do here with the challenges. You help in more ways than you know. Thank you!
What a lovely surprise, I wasn't expecting you. There are two PM's by the way LOL We definitely missed you but understand, and everyone here lends that helping hand, so take all the time you need....but GET BACK HERE!!
