Seamus and The Bride of Frankenstein.....

Ahemmmm....

Anyone still out there???

Hmmmm....

Once again, I don't quite know where to begin.

I truly had the best intentions of catching up and keeping up.
But, it didn't happen.
And once "it" doesn't "happen," I just don't quite know where to jump back in.

I should give up.

But I can't.

I would miss you all so horribly.

 I'm not going to even try with the "catch-up" routine at this point....too much water under the proverbial bridge I guess.

I had hoped I wouldn't have to explain....that I could just slip back in quietly, but, uhhhmmmm, I guess too much time went by.  So, suffice it to say that the medical "issues" continue....

I had some surgery.....and now look like the Bride of Frankenstein.


I had been having many problems with my vision, one of which was a very limited field of vision..... This was done to help it.....
It helped, I think....but no one told me I would be AWAKE for the surgery.....

Oh...and....that I might, just maybe, be allergic to the antibiotic ointment that I was given to put on and in my eyes....

So, after a few days, I looked like this:


And it went downhill from there....to the point that I couldn't see to even take a photo....

But I am on the mend now.....(well, other than a wayward stitch that got left in.....Good thing my surgeon is so easy on my eyes....if ya know what I mean.... ;o))

And Spooking Season is dawning.....

So....this time around I will welcome it as the Bride of Frankenstein.....

My newest bud, Seamus, doesn't seem to mind.....




 We hope to be back soon......

Welcome Autumn!!!

I've been there. HUGE difference and I would do it again. Hope all is well/healing/resolved!

Sending healing and positive energy your way Robin... Welcome back!

I will probably have to have it done someday. One eye lid tends to droop a bit and when I am tired my vision is not good in that eye. But I shove on the old glasses and it doesn't show that much.

I sincerely hope you are feeling much better in a few days. My friend had the same surgery and says she is so happy she did.

Take care......
Susannah
