Hello - I have started getting a few emails wondering where I am. I am sorry I haven't posted, but I have had an accident here on the farm -
Wednesday evening while out watering the donkeys - I was struck in the face with a bungee tie down strap. I was alone, Hubby had been out of town, and was on his way home. Thank God our Dr. Neighbor was just driving up the road, I could barely see her in the distance, and I yelled for her. I have had one eye surgery - and will be going in on Tuesday to be examined... I have lost my right eye. They will start the processes and surgery's to get me a artificial eye as soon as they feel that my face and eye has healed enough.
First thing I want to say... I am OK - I will get through this, I have the most amazing Husband, family and friends that are here with me - I have two concerns and goals... One... I have to get back to coloring as soon as possible, and two I need to train my "good eye" (I say that loosely cuz I have always been as I said before blind as a bat and wore contacts) Now that eye will need to be trained and made stronger so I can get back to life and my second goal... Driving.
Things seem bad... but I have faith in God that this will all end up good. I am not going to let this get me down- it is not my personality to be depressed I am going to get through this and be just as good as new.. just one less eye -
I will try and post updates from time to time, but at the moment, the computer screen really strains my eye so I can't work on it for very long.
Thank you for the prayers and well wishes - I know I need the strength of all of my family and friends - including each of you -
