Same Song, Second Verse


By the time many of you read this, I will be undergoing the second in a series of eye surgeries to save my vision.  If you are new to my blog, or missed my previous post, you may read more here.

The good thing about this second surgery:  I know what to expect.
The bad thing about this second surgery:  I know what to expect!
There is one more good thing: 
Now both eyes will be swollen, both sides of my face will be sore and discolored, and I will have matching incisions at the outer corners of both eyes.
I prefer, after all, to be a well-balanced person!
So, the good outweighs the bad!

Since my last update, it does appear that the majority of vision in my right eye was saved.
I am a lucky, lucky girl!


In the past few days, I was determined to start stitching again!
The process was slow, with limited vision.  This little dress still lacks buttonholes, buttons and a hem.
However, with God's grace and the prayers of dear friends, I know that I will return to complete it and many more.
I have scheduled a few other posts in the coming days.
I will see you again here a little later.

In the meantime, you know what to do:
Stitch, create, decorate and appreciate!
It's a wonderful life!

I'm so glad you were able to post an update. I was about to leave to go out of town. I'm so glad you were able to sew. I KNOW what kind of thereapy that is for those of us who love it.
Many prayers continued.
