I'm not sure how to start this post. The last five days have brought some tremendous changes to my life.
I'm borrowing my dear friend's laptop, because mine spontaneously perished this morning. How's the saying go...when it rains it pours? I wish it was just rain! :)
Until I can resurrect the hard drive, all the photos I took and the work I scanned are inaccessible. I'd backed up all my photos except the last upload. Of course.
I took these gorgeous sunset photos last month. The colors were just so lovely, I ran outside and started snapping away. If you'd told me when I took these photos what would have happened this last weekend, I'd have laughed.
I remember several years ago as I witnessed a patient describing how their hearing loss had hit so suddenly. I was struck with the thought that life can change so much in one day. The day before, everything was fine, life was going smoothly, and the next everything can change. That is the reality that I am faced with tonight as I type this.
I don't want to be too cryptic, but I had a sudden change in my eyesight and health over the past weekend, and I found out the cause today. Literally, I took a short nap, and when I woke up my vision had changed. It's going to take a few weeks to get everything back in balance, but I am so grateful for good medical doctors, loving family, and the knowledge I have that things will work out. I am absolutely sure that I will be fine. I can't type the word yet, but you may guess when I tell you I have to eliminate sugar completely from my diet (!!!), and have some unpleasant routines I have to add to my day. There's no family history, but somehow I still hit the jackpot.
So, posting will be a bit sparse, but I promise to be back to a regular routine as soon as I have a working computer.
Thank you for reading my ramblings and cheering me on as I continue to learn how to do hard things, and create a beautiful life in the process.
