Updates - I am doing well... overwhelmed -- - oh and we had a new baby

Hello and from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!

I really can't even put into words how much all of your support has meant to me and helped me keep my spirits up. Hubby is reading each of your comments and emails to me - they really do lift me and make both of us feel loved and supported.

So how am I doing? Well... I am doing well, and just waiting for my surgery - at this point we think it will be the 14th. I am learning how to move around and see with my left eye - I didn't see well before the accident, and wore contacts, now they say I have to only wear glasses and that is taking some adjusting.  Depth perception, and seeing around a room is taking some time to learn.  I have had very little pain this last week. Just headaches and some dizziness. Light still bothers me, and the TV and computer screen just really effect me.

I again need to say thank you to everyone - The support has meant the world to us - I really can't even put it into words - I think I already said that :0)

So before I go - we have had a new baby here on the farm... Life goes on and that is a true joy. Except... Did I tell you the Dr.s won't let me go outside to love on my kids? THAT HAS TO BE THE HARDEST THING TO DEAL WITH FOR ME! Any way - Annie one of our goats last weekend had a baby! Hubby went to let the dogs out about 11pm and came in and got me and walked me out to see it. And now every day he brings it up to the porch so I can see how big she is already getting! She is amazing - JUST STUNNING... I named her Chloe ...


She is white with buckskin and black spots... and she has her Dads ice blue eyes... she is gorgeous..
She has a healthy set of lungs too... WOW.

Life goes on. And the big picture is that I am going to be fine, I am getting stronger each day and in a couple of months I will be able to get back to babies. I hope to try coloring soon too miss that almost as much as my babies :0). I love each of you and really have enjoyed hearing from you... your support really has lifted me in ways I cannot even express... again I think I have said that -   :0)

Time for me to sign off.... and even if I have said it before... Thank you from the bottom of my heart  ==== HUGS and

Oh Michelle I am so glad to hear from you and that you are doing better. Thanks to Hubby for being there for all the support she needs. I just knew you wouldnt be able to go near the babies because you dont want a piece of hair to get in there. Lets heal first and then you will have all the time in the world to be with your babies and color. I am sure they will understand

cheribella said...

Michelle, Your message of improvement and adjusting has made my day:) You are in my prayers daily...you and your family (hubby & fur babies too).
Chloe is just beautiful and I'm sure you're just itching to get out there to her. Her pics look like she has a good set of lungs just as you said. Maybe that's just so she can speak to you:)
Good luck with your surgery. I'm sure all will go well and you will find the way back to your daily routine soon enough. For now just rest and take comfort in knowing you are loved beyond words and missed all over the world.
Hugz,
Cheri

Praying for you daily, so glad to hear you're doing better. I'm sure it's tough adjusting to glasses, impaired vision, and most of all, fewer hugs to the critters!

We sure do learn how much we take for granted when we least expect it. God bless you and your entire family.

Hope those animals and sweet hubby spoil you lots.

Michelle, just became aware of your situation and send my very best wishes for success of the upcoming surgery and recovery. It must be overwhelming at times, life changes in a flash. But you have a great attitude and with support around, I hope you will feel the sunshine in your life again. It will be a different life but there will be good in it too. It's okay to be sad at times too, that's normal. I will keep checking from my little PC here in Australia. Warmest regards, Kim Tonnet

Diane Jaquay said...

I just learned about your accident on Niki Estes blog and I wanted to let you know how sorry I am. I am totally blind in my right eye, have been since birth, and I wear glasses to see well with the left eye. I'm sure it's much different to have this happen as an adult, but I just wanted to offer my support and encouragement to you. Yes, this does affect your depth perception, but you will adjust to it. I also happen to be completely color blind, yet I do manage to create artwork that looks good (you can visit my blog to see what I'm able to do even with my infirmities). I'm sure you'll be back to creating in no time! My prayers and thoughts are with you.
Hugs, Diane

cafty lil pixie said...

I learnt of your accident through http://magslittlethings.blogspot.com/I'm sorry to hear of your ordeal, I've looked at your lovely creative flair and I doubt that your accident will hold you back from getting back to creativity again. Once you have found your passion you have also found your purpose in life. Congratulations on your newest baby to your family it's just sooo cute! my family had a goat when I was little, her name was Vanilla, she used to eat gingernuts with a vengeance, if you didn't have one in your hand for her when you went to pat her, she would bunt you across the lawn, the only people that got a good laugh about it was the neighbors watching us feed her from time to time. my brother was about 5years old at the time and you would often see him flying across the garden hahhaahaa goats certainly gave our family many happy memories as I'm sure they would for your family also.

Best of luck for the healing of your eye, take your time to mend, your passion will not be lost, you will find a way back to your crafts in your own time, everyone will be waiting for you patiently :)

Hugs Hayley xxx

Hello Michelle! I have never been on your blog before but Niki Estes wrote you had an accident and I've read about it on your blog. My thoughts are with you. Hoping you have a successful surgery and adjustments with your left eye.

**June**

Maylee said...

So glad you are doing well Michelle! Keeping you in my prayers.

Anne said...

Michelle-Try not to get discouraged. I have recently (3 weeks ago) had serious eye surgery and I thought I would be seeing clearly in a few days. It is a slow process and for someone like you who is so active I am sure it will be an aggravating one. I find that I have to tell myself that it will get better and to be patient. God has great plans for you and I am sure that in His goodness you will be able to color again soon. You are in my prayers. My grand daughter has a farm and she has recently had some new arrivals of baby goats and they are too cute just like yours.

Jaya Christina said...

so sorry abt the accident. But your faith shines through and will lead you through. God bless.

Hi Michelle,

We have never met, but I have come to feel that crafting world is one big happy circle of friends and I've always felt very lucky to have met so many awesome people since I started crafting.

I wanted you to know that I have heard a lot of wonderful things about you and read of your tragic accident. I do hope that you'll feel better each day and that your surgery will go very well.

You are well admired in this world and I've truly been touched by all those who care so deeply for you and your recovery. I know you have a world of friends thinking about you and sending prayers and thoughts your way.
Please take care and remember there are a whole bunch of us praying for you and your recovery!

Hugs,

I am so sorry to hear about your accident. My prayers are going out to you and your family. Get better soon, but don't push it.

Pauline C said...

Dear Michelle
heard about your accident on SFoS and just had to visit - sadly life whizzes by all too fast and so hadn't visited your blog for too long - but i have read your posts and am full of admiration for your resilience and guts in light of such a shocking and sudden accident. Wishing you all the best of everything with your surgery and recovery - my mum has had some very distressing illness including facial surgery, and even though her situation is very different I have seen how keeping a positive attitude makes ALL the differnece when it comes to getting through it. Stay strong hun and you will all the sooner be back to doing everything you want to do. Love and hugs, and a card is winging its way to you .. am sure it will be one of very many to show you support through this :-)

Carol Dee said...

So glad to hear you are doing so well. It will take time. And thank your sweet hubby for bringing the littlest treasure to visit each evening. I bet that is the best medicine :) I know a young lady that lost an eye to cancer. She played softball and was good. So in time I figure your depth perception will adjust or you will :) Much love and big hugs,

Inspired By Friends said...

I know what your going through with loosing sight. I myself lost vision in my left eye and can only see from half my nose to the right in my right eye however, mine was from a stroke, I was 36 years old at the time and now being 39 I have managed to get back to doing the things I love and that too is card making. I may not be able to see well enough to drive ever again but, thats ok because, I did learn how to manage with what little vision I have left. It's scarry at first but with time and your positive attitude and all the love and support you have trust me it will get easier and once again you will be back on your feet again. Hang in there and best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Hugs,
Beth

Hi, Michelle. I've never written to you before but I know you, your blog and your babies and I was really sad when I heard about your accident. Now I'm happy to read all these good news, including the birth of the little Chloe. AUGURI DI CUORE from Italy. Miria

Keeping you and your entire family in my thoughts and prayers!!
Spoke to my Mom today and told her your story--she has been without her left eye for 51 years now--she had a benign tumor which took her eye at 24 yrs old and she had 6 little babies at home.
Keep the faith~~
