It's funny but I know some of you so well
that I kind of know when I post the pictures
which one you will vote for.

Thank you all for your prayers.
I did nothing yesterday except rest.
I don't want you all to worry about me because
what I had done was minor surgery in 
the big scale of things
and I don't want to leave you guessing.
I will tell you that I had some surgery on my eyes.
I had a growth that had to be removed 
and my vision has been impaired by about 40%.
My computer time is limited for a few days
because my eyes are scratchy feeling
and need to heal.
I have quite a few stitches and let's just say
IT AIN'T PURTY!

I did NOT want to have this done
but I realized that I could not see
the ceiling when I was looking 
straight ahead.

The Dr. thought I would need a skin graft
where the growth was
but I did not need one 
AND 
he was able to save my lash line.
THAT is a good thing, 
as Martha Stewart would say.

You know...I was really kind of stupid about 
the whole thing.
I should have scheduled the surgery for 
HALLOWEEN WEEK.
Then I would have been all set.
I could wrap myself in rags and be one of 
THE LIVING DEAD!

Usually I am just a 
WITCH.
No costume necessary!

Have A Happy Columbus Day!

You DID know it was Columbus Day, didn't you?

  12. I'm hoping the healing goes well and fast, Diana! I'm sorry I missed the survey. I would have chosen the first one also. And Yes, I did know it was Columbus Day because the package I labeled for shipping today won't go out now until tomorrow. Grrr. Oh well, it's a small town post office. I think they will forgive me.

  13. Wow! My choice won, this time! Imagine that! -grin-

    Thank you so much, for telling us about your minor surgery. In a vacuum of info, women can conjure up all sorts of false possibilities. Thank you for not leaving us, in that.

    Rest. Heal. Hugs.

  14. Yay! I'm in good company. I picked #1 too. That picture of that witch is creepy! Glad that you're healing well. Speaking of eyes, I just noticed a broken blood vessel in my eye last night. It looks HORRIBLE now and I've never had one before. It's all red in the white part of my eye on one side. I looked it up online and it said it will take a couple of weeks to go away. Nooooooo! I'm going to scare people when they see me.

  15. OH I'm glad the surgery is over without complications! Now, you go rest and get some pampering!! xoxo

  16. Oh Diana, take care of those eyes; your eyes are precious. I hope you have a speedy recovery from your surgery.

    Yaaaaay, I picked table number one. How could I not? It's so lovely. Have a good Autumn week, and rest your eyes, please?

    love,

  18. Good morning Diana, It is cool 56 and raining so I am reading blogs this morning. Please take care of those eyes. They are very precious. We go Wednesday to see if the injection is working in Hubby's eye. I couldn't decide which table setting I liked best so I didn't comment because you wouldn't let me vote for all of them. It is always so hard to decide wedding decorations. I can remember the trouble we had when our daughter got married. They ended up making theirs. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  19. I hope you are feeling better today, Diana! You have been in my thoughts. I missed your table voting post. Not sure which one I would have picked, it would be a toss up between the winner, and the one with the wheat. I especially love that one, I guess 'cuz I am the daughter of a wheat farmer:)

    ReplyDelete
  20. You always come up with the best round up of table settings. Praying for continued healing!!

  21. Heal fast Diana! I loved all the choices!

  22. WOW Diana you are a brave one to face that surgery! Thankfullly you still have those lashes to bat at your Hero.
    Sending healing kisses you way.

  23. Hi Diana, I am happy that you are feeling well enough to joke about your surgery. I am praying for a speedy recovery.
    I had forgot that it was Columbus Day. I wonder if Steve remembered, if his Mom was still with us, this would be her birthday:)
    I wonder if they celebrate birthdays in heaven . . . I'm thinking that they have more important things to celebrate, right :)
    Have a lovely day, REST AND STAY OFF THE COMPUTER! LISTEN TO YOUR DOCTOR!
    Love you, your blogging sister, Connie :)

  33. Diana, No Mail today. That's how I usually know it's a federal holiday. :) Glad you had a successful surgery. You call it minor...but when it's our eyes...hey I think that's major. Get all the rest you can. Bless you, xoxo,Susie

  34. You might have kept your lashes, but are you aware they took your irises???
    Glad you are doing well, sweet friend. Continue to rest, and hopefully your eyes will look better in a few days...wink.

  35. Not sure how I missed your announcement about the surgery, but glad it is taken care of. I think I would have been pretty nervous about that, but our eyesight is just so precious. Your sense of humor is always precious. Prayers for healing and yes, I was aware of Columbus Day and how he sailed the ocean blue in 14 hundred and 92 and I'm glad he did.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sorry I missed the announcement, but I am so glad you are on the mend!

  38. Your getting to know us huh? I bet. I am glad you got it removed before it became worse or harder to remove. You should be relaxing and not on the computer!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Fast healing to you, dear lady.

    Dang, I missed your table vote. I hate missing those, love them.

    Well come on over for a visit to see MY tablescape? : - )

    Take care, no heavy lifting either! And rest rest rest those pretty eyes of yours.

    Hugs.

  41. Glad you took care of your eye, girl! Rest up and have MyHero (YourHero?) wait on you hand and foot and you'll be back to your old self in no time (not saying you're old or anything)!

  42. So happy you had the surgery and all turned out well. Hallelujah for the saving of the lash line!! Keep on healing, Jane

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have to admit I am kind of creeped out by anything that has to do with the eyes. My daughter had to have a shot in her eye once. They almost had to peel me off the floor. SO happy that you are doing well and that your lashes are still ever so lovely. xo Laura

  44. Wishing you an easy and speedy recovery, Diana! Glad it wasn't as complicated as you thought it might be!

  51. OH dear, I am so sorry I am sure that was scary. I can imagine what it was like. When my vision began to go it made me walk into things. I am so glad yours was fixed and will be alright in the end. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
