The Big Piney Woods Cats

CalicoMom here.

It has been a horrendous experience and I have a long way to go. My eye is still almost swollen shut and very red. It is still dilated for some reason, everything very blurry; but the Dr. said the hole was sealed! That is the important thing. I am able to look up some now, so thought I would update; and thank all of you for your wonderful comments. Thanks also to Missy (I got the package yesterday!) I am waiting until I feel better to give the girls the nip. Also thanks to Linda for the fev-vers!!!!

It will be a while before I can get glasses, so seeing is going to be a chore. I always wore hard contact lens and have decided to go to glasses. They say it may take up to three months before I can get the proper fit, and as nearsighted as I am, I just can't wait that long.

Thanks to all of you who teleported over. Funny, I could feel the presence of little furry bodies. Thanks to all of you for being my friend, for all the purrayers and good thoughts; it means so much.

  • Anonymous Sue and Daisy posted at 9:51 AM  
    It is just so wonderful to have you back, everyone has been sending good thoughts, and missing you so much. The Meezers Mom is right - you are the bravest person I know too, I don't think I could have done this. And glasses are o.k., I gave up my contacts some years ago and got used to glasses again. Take it easy, and don't blog or email too much.
