MOM ON MONDAY........ and a word (or two or...) from Shiloh'n Shasta

First Mom - Ok, I have decided that unless there is a drastic change in my vision in the next month or so, I will not be posting a whole lot about it.  At times it seems to take over my life and there is more to me than that.  Suffice it to say that I did have an appointment earlier this morning with my local eye doctor and while the improvement is still "maybe slight but definitely not worse but no cause for celebration" - my doctor needs to realize that I do consider "not worse" a really good reason to celebrate considering the overall nature of my eye condition.  In fact, the fact that I am seeing good enough that I can return to my previous job IS a MAJOR cause for celebration.
In fact, after thinking about my overall health condition 35 years ago when I was discharged from the hospital on Christmas Eve after a surgery that left me more like an infant than a 20 year old woman and having the surgeon and other medical staff giving a prognosis that I would probably never walk again and a hospital social worker tell my mom and dad that they should probably find an institution for me - and now I am living on my own and working at a good job where I have been for 26 years.  Reason to celebrate- 

Ok, this post is already longer than I originally planned - hope no one minded my sentimental journey but it was all kinda brought home when I sat in church on Christmas Eve 2011 and thinking what 'I' was experiencing when I sat in church on that Christmas Eve in 1976.
Now on to the news from Shiloh'n Shasta->

Kim, I do not know the story behind your eye or other health problems, just some of what I have read here on the blogs... I just know how I feel when I read your posts and read of your struggles with your eyes. I guess there is some sort of string between us and I feel like I know your heart. I am so glad that you are able to work again and it really is cause to celebrate!

Shiloh and Shasta, I really do love your new bed, I would bet that Jill would love one like it! You were so lucky to win that prize and going to get treats!

It sounds like great news to us! My mom has mapdot-fingerprint dystrophy in her eyes (on again/off again blindness but in remission for the past 10 years!). She really knows what it's like to have vision problems.

Best wishes for a wonderful new year. Yes, I like that bed. You two look like an I Ching.

love & wags,
