Wordless Wednesday 12: Hiatus

Well, I must apologize to all for the recent silence on the Soapbox, and it looks like there will be more ‘wordless’ to come in the near future.

You, see, at a regular eye exam last week, my optometrist spotted a detached retina in my left eye and it was off for Scleral buckle surgery on Friday morning for me.  Nothing caused it – lucky me, just a congenital condition that can happen when you have strong near-sightedness, as I do.

But since then, and for quite some time yet, I am to avoid reading, watching TV, and computers, which has meant for some very boring time off , and I am briefly violating that for this quick note.

Hope you all are enjoying your holidays!

I will have a lot of blog reading to catch up on when I get back!

Moses and Alma don’t mind having the extra company.

    Oh no. That can be serious. Please follow your doctors directions and get well soon. 🙂

    Yikes, I am so glad you caught the problem before it got worse. When it comes to eyes, one can’t be too careful. I haven’t had an eye exam since I was twelve. Since I don’t need glasses to see, it’s off my radar. Perhaps I should get on that. 😛

    Take care and enjoy the time with your puppies!

    If you are not allowed to read, or go on the computer, take advantage and catch up on some other stuff around the house – more walks and playtime with Moses and Alma – they will be very happy to the extra time with you!
    Get better soon.

  6. Oh wow, now I feel really bad! Hope the surgery went well– and don’t read this comment if you shouldn’t!

    I had to read back this far to learn the reason for your hiatus. I’m so glad you’re on the other side! I can’t even imagine a life without technology. I do hope you’ll share a bit about how you survived! I’d have to spend more time listening to music and audio books, I think. Glad you’re back, even if in small doses!
