I am back

Hello dear friends, I missed you. I was not online at all yesterday. Had an appointment with my eye doctor, had to get my eyes dilated. So, after I got home, could barely see for several hours. I could not believe it when I came to my blog today, my followers hit 401, unbelievable. When I first started blogging, I thought I might get 20 followers at the most. 401, no way!! Thank you so much , welcome to all new followers. I love, and appreciate all of my followers so very much. Well, now to update you on how my vision is doing. After testing me with the eye chart, they said my vision was 20/100 in both eyes. Basically, there has been no improvement. My vision continues to progressively get worse. I asked my doctor what was the main reason for my vision problems. He said it is a combination of my diabetes, the strokes, and when I had anorexia. Those three things have really damaged my vision. I have problems in the back of my eyes, the nerves in my eyes, and other problems. I asked him if he was going to remove the cataract from my left eye, and clear the right eye from where a cataract was removed. He said no, that it would not improve my vision at all, and that there was too big of a risk, that it would just damage my eyes even more. As far as being able to wear glasses while reading, and on my computer, they are going to try to let me do that. They will be bifocals. The prescription is 20/100 in both lens. So, we will see how that goes.  Hey, I wonder if I could ride a tricycle, while wearing my bifocals???  Ha, just kidding. Take care everybody, sending hugs and prayers your way. Beep, beep. Watch out, here comes Mrs. Magoo. Road Hogs!!

OMG you dear sweet one! I feel sad that you have so many difficult health issues and yet you maintain such a sweet positive attitude of faith. You are such a good example of endurance. No wonder you have 400 followers.
Blessings dear friend and I hope that you Bi-focal work well for you. I think I might have a cataract in my one eye.

Congratulation Denise. You are so popular:) it is because you are such a very positive and kind woman. Strong in faith and an inspiration. Good luck to more years of blogging!

Hi Denise,
I hate for you to get such a bad eye report, but God can do anything. My aunt was born legally blind, and when she was 85 years old I asked her why she never seemed blind to me...and could do so much. She laughed and said, "Don't you know that you can have an inner eye that sees perfectly well. I use my inner eyes to see perfectly"! Take that inner eye to the LORD and ask to be able to see perfectly!

I love the MaGoo cartoon. I always loved that one! Much love to you and hope you have a wonderful day!!! I got my work done rearranging the rooms! Wow..what fun to have these new rooms! ♥♥♥
