Since my last post 2 years ago and some, way too much has happened. 2013 was the year of deaths, following on the heels of Grandpa's death December 2012. I lost my other grandfather, a dear cousin, my great-aunt (and Godmother), two beloved teachers from high school, Mr. Claraspet's aunt, and then top it off with a dear lady I knew all my life (who left me her treadle.) That was June-September. There's been a couple more deaths, ending with Mr. C's grandma a week ago. She was a wonderful, dear lady. But the biggest challenge to come my way came last November with my eyesight. Something wasn't right with my vision, but I wasn't sure what. I was due into the retina specialist anyway, and when I went I was appalled to find out that what didn't seem right was 20/70 (corrected) in my left eye. CNV -- choroidal neovascularization. It's easy to search if you want to know more. 4 shots later my vision seems to be back as close to 20/20 (corrected) as I'll get. If I use just my left eye things are still wavy, but I'll take wavy and clear as opposed to what it was last November. I'm just getting back into sewing, though I have been cross stitching and crocheting. I'm working on projects for everyone while I can, just in case the CNV ever acts up again.
So that's been about it. CNV sucks -- but it could be worse.
I hope to post again tomorrow. I have a new family member to introduce.
Take care, y'all, and print yourselves Amsler Grids.
