Appreciate Every Day

I have known for over 30 years that I could find myself suddenly blind. So of course after that long you tend to think you are one of the lucky ones and all will be ok. I have Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE)One in 25,000 - 100,000 have it. If you want to google it it is an interesting read.
Well it has finally happened. I am blind in my left eye. I was hoping for the help of injections but unfortunately my eye is to damaged. Now to pray the right eye does not develope the same problems. When you live in the country driving is a must. I have to admit this has unsettled me. Just taking it one day at a time.

Sewing is an adjustment and also just plain walking. My depth of vision is all messed up. I have found that I need a lot more light to work. Sure hope my good eye adjusts soon so I don't hit the Will return with another post soon. Starting to get some Christmas decorations out so that is enough to cheer anyone up.

My heart is with you, I faced blindness due to glaucoma this past summer; sure is a tough situation. Will pray for His grace during this adjustment to your new circumstances and for soundness to remain in your other eye. Hugs.
