Shh... I'm Sparkin' a little past my bedtime... LOL!

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Just wanted to let you know that I'm here just laying a little bit low. As most of you know, eye surgery is imminent for me - as in November 30th. To be honest, it can't come soon enough. My vision has deteriorated considerably. It takes me a good deal of effort to do any reading or computer work. Driving... well, let's just say it's stressful. I don't feel like I'm being unsafe at all; but I'm certainly being extra cautious and avoid driving all together if it's dark. DH has been wonderful in taking me places when it's difficult for me to drive. It's really hard for me though because I love cars and I love to drive. It's like cutting an arm off for me.

Anyway, I had to prepare a presentation yesterday and spent the day in the lab today so all the squinting has left me with quite a headache. Sorry if I haven't been bopping around and commenting as much. It's not that I don't care or am not interested. It's just really hard for me. So I hope you all are well! I'll be catching up again soon as long as all goes well on the 30th. Things should be looking much brighter then.... quite literally!

The good news and I'm counting this as one big 'ole NSV for me... I've refrained from any kind of stress eating and have been pretty good about exercise. I don't think I would be saying the same thing if this had happened same time last year. Woo hoo! I think that's worth a little happy dance!

Spark on my friends! Catch you later!

    Cheer up, Chris - it will all be for the better soon. I know that doesn't help the anxiety about surgery, but there is better vision in your future. Good luck!

    Don't worry about responding to this - you have enough going on...

    I remember when I was having vision issues with autoimmune problems and was unable to drive myself any where even in the day time. So blessed that my DH like yours was very supportive and drove me places. I love to read and had to get digital books to listen to for a while. Glad your surgery is not far away and that you are taking it easy. Let me know if there is anything on Teddy Bear team you need help with if your eyes need rest now through surgery recovery!! Take care of you!! Hugs Barb

    I'm excited for you, both about the upcoming surgery and the not partaking in the stress eating! A very big step in the right direction. I hope all goes well. Sending lots of hugs!

    Glad your dh is stepping up to the plate. My cataracts is not to that point but I do avoid going into the city after dark. I'm lucky I live in such a small town as most of my night driving there is rarely any traffic. Will be glad when your surgery is over and so happy you are not stress eating. Not really expecting you to write much under the circumstances. Just glad this will be over for you soon! emoticon
