This is a Blue eye, like mine.

You have probably noticed that nothing new has been written for a bit, there is a reason.
As I was finishing the new Blog about Organics, it became increasingly more painful to work each day, until I knew something was terribly wrong.
My left eye felt like it had sand, or glass in it, it was raw meat!
So, after removing the Contact lens from my very irritated eye, I called my Eye Doctor and made an appointment.
When I saw him Wednesday, he gave me a lecture on good eye care and the grim news.
He told me that I have an infection in my Cornea and because I wear contacts, this means that I am now only allowed to wear one, making writing or doing many things difficult, until I see him for the follow-up next Thursday.
Under his VERY stern warning of losing my eyesight, I was told that I was, under no conditions, to put one in the affected eye, until I see him again next week!
In the mean time, doing drops in the eye 4X a day.
I am trying to read and respond to each of you, as best as possible for now, but it is hard, it hurts to stare at the computer for more than a few minutes.
The bright light of the computer screen makes my eyes most unhappy.
For now, I am spending a lot of time with my eyes closed.
Remember what you’ve heard about Doctors and Nurses being TERRIBLE patients?
It is TRUE, I am not a patient patient and doing nothing is driving me crazy!
Can’t drive and going out really hurts my eyes, I am trapped here!
So, until next Thursday, know that you are all in my mind and my heart.
Funny how addicted you become to Blogging and all that that entails.
I spent a lifetime with out WordPress, have no idea how on Earth it become so important to me, but it did/has.
Sitting here for hours, in my darkened bedroom is strange and sad, I feel like a Bat sometimes.
Poor Breanna is not sure what is wrong, but she is right here and seems content to wait this out with me.
We shall return soon and miss hearing from all of you!
On Flagler Beach in June~
I’m so sorry about your eye. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will get better soon.
All is great now!
Thank you so much for caring.
🙂 My mom has trouble with her eyes, so I know how difficult it can be. Good to know that you’re feeling better.
You must take care of yourself, Donna. Be patient – the planet needs you to see.
I did exactly what the Doctor told me to do and this morning he said it was all healed.
Thank you for your hugs Emy~
Sorry to hear that, I hope you’re out of pain soon. Are there no glasses he could have prescribed for you in the meanwhile, or would that take too long?
Thank you so much~
The pain is over, the eye is healed.
God is great!
Very sorry to hear about your eye. Hope the infection will disappear soon.
Thank you Anarette, as always, for caring~
The infection is gone!!!
So very sorry to hear about your eye. Enforced rest is very hard, isn’t it? Does not sound like fun!! Hope you will soon be better and back to WP. Have missed your presence here. Hugs, Ellen
This was one of the hardest weeks of my life.
I am not a good patient and was a virtual prisoner in the dark.
Am ecstatic to be cleared to write my little heart out, once again.
Thank you Ellen.
Oh boy… This is tough… Hang in there
Thank you, so glad it is all over!
Oh, Donna! So sorry to hear your painful tale. I really hope your eye makes good … and quick … progress. Best wishes, Peggy.
Thank you dear Peggy.
It is so nice to know it is all behind me now!
Sending you healing thoughts and harps songs on the winds . . . hope you get better quickly. I live your writing and look forward to when it resumes. Take care. You don’t have to answer.
I could feel the love and kindness from all of you this past week.
It made an unbearable situation bearable!!!!!
My husband has been in the eye-care business for over twenty years. Please REST your eye! Bless you with prayers of healing sent your way. So tough to be a patient! 🙂
Your prayers did work.
It is cleared and healed and my Doctor says all is great!
My vision is 20/400 and I have worn contacts for 30 years…I feel your pain. I hate to do without the contacts, I also have progressive featherweight glasses which are a very good thing. Hang in there.
I believe that is what mine is too.
Have decided that the only thing more addictive than wearing contacts, is writing on Word Press.
Sick but Very true, I love the bifocal contacts, but my vision (or lack thereof) is overwhelming the reading part.
What a bummer. I guess you’re facing the sometimes hard to grasp motto of “Life on Life’s terms.” Ouch. Sending you light and love and a super dose of recovery. Blessings. :o)
Your love is felt and so very appreciated Birgit. Thank you.
I know that all of you helped me get through this!
BE patient! Take care of your eyes.
Not patient, never have been.
But I did do exactly what I was told to do this past week and it is healed.
Get well soon.
Thank you Xena. It is healed!!!
Take care of that eye. I hope the infection clears soon.
I have been cleared by my Doctor today.
It is all gone! Thank you!
I hope you recover soon. Follow the directions of your eye that your insurance will be effective for healing.
Thank you Francisco for your kind words and thoughts.
I am all healed as of today!
BE CAREFUL. I myself, my cousin and sister all lost vision because of improper eye care. In my case not getting regular checkups; my sister had the infection like you but my cousin had it wore and lost her vision in one eye. B careful Donna. Love; ~ Eric
Dear Eric. You are so sweet.
Today my Doctor gave me the all clear.
The eye is healed.
I am so happy to be able to talk to all of you once again.
You were all on my mind the whole time.
Sorry about your eye trouble. With care, it should be fine. Patience, as you say, is the problem. I totally understand. Looking forward to you blogging when you are up to it (er, when the eye is up to it!).
Yes, patience is not a virtue that I possess.
But, I did follow his instructions and it is all healed.
Thank you so much~
Sending you healing thoughts 🙂
Thank you Dear Carol. They were so appreciated!!!!
Being the only sighted one of my three siblings I value my eyesight. I miss your posts. Get well soon.
Your prayers worked. It is all done.
I am healed and back to where I need to be. Talking to all of you right here!
Good luck! Hope you are OK! Hugs.
Thank you for your kind words and wishes.
I am just fine NOW!
Hope to hear some good news about your eye soon.
The News today was, ” it is all healed. ”
So sorry about that !…I wish you a quick and complete recovery. We miss you already !…
Thank you so much for your very kind words.
It is all gone, I am healed.
So happy to be back here!
Good luck with your eye Donna. And yes, it’s amazing how addictive Word Press is. –Curt
It is so sad. I had no idea what a Word Press junkie I had become.
Thank God, it is over!!
Until next time. (grin)
Oh no, you poor thing!!! Sending you LOTS of (belated, yes) good-feelie vibes and healing thoughts. I hope through the worst of it, though!!
Got them all. God Bless!!!!
Get better soon, sweetey!! 🙂
The Drops did the trick.
I just read in one of your comments that you’re eye is better now. I’m very glad to hear that! Take care!
Thank you so much Tanya. Yes, all better now!
