Out Sick

Hi Everyone,

I thought I 'll let you know why I dropped out of blog land all of a sudden recently and were not able to visit your blogs and admire you wonderful cards and leave comments. I really miss you all. I miss card making and my creative time in my card room. A big part of my life is all of a sudden missing.....

One and a half weeks ago I developed acute vitreal detachment and 2 days later as a complication of  that a retinal tear causing a lot of bleeding into my eye. That totally took my out. I had two procedures in the meantime to seal the tear. The second was successful. Now the tear needs to heal. There is still a risk over the next weeks for additional tearing. I am not allowed to do anything, but sit around. No reading, rapid eye movements, lifting or anything. Besides that, I can barely see anything in my eye - still blood in there and humongo floaters. So I keep it short. Hopefully all will heal well and I will be back............

oh Liebelein ich bin in Gedanken bei dir, hoffentlich erholen sich deine Augen ganz schnell und du bist auf dem Weg der Heilung.
Das Alles klingt so schlimm, grade wenn etwas am Kopf nicht stimmt, aber wenn es die Augen betrifft ist das schrecklich.
ich hoffe und bete für dich

Kopf hoch .... aber ganz langsam, das wird wieder!!! Nimm Dir die Zeit, die Du brauchst und die Dir die Ärzte verordnet haben!!! Ich weiß, Geduld zu haben ist für uns Kreative nicht möglich, vor allem wenn es in den Fingern kribbelt.
Feste Umarmung und GLG Gundi

Hanna said...

Liebe Cornelia,

ich bin geschockt, denn das Augenlicht ist so unglaublich wichtig und es ist einfach unvorstellbar es zu verlieren. Ich hoffe, dass Du vernünftig bist und alles tust, um es nicht zu gefährden.
Der Blog kann warten aber der Verzicht aufs Basteln ist sicher hart, plötzlich so unbeschäftigte Hände ... Ich wünsche Dir, dass alles schnell heilt und Du Deine Sehkraft in vollem Umfang zurückerhältst! In Gedanken bin ich, und sicher ganz viele andere Menschen, bei Dir und drücken Dir alle Daumen.

Sei ganz herzlich gegrüßt von
Hanna

I just assumed you were busy with summertime activities, Cornelia, or maybe you were on holiday. I really appreciate that you were able to let us all know what's going on so we don't wonder. I'm very sorry this has happened and I pray there will be no setbacks and your eye will heal successfully. We will all be here when you are able to come back! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs, Darnell

conil said...

Oh crap! Just thought you were on vacation, Cornelia. You poor darling. Can't imagine how awful this has to be for you. Half blind AND you can't do creative work or even read, for that matter. Well, take your time, let the eye heal and we'll send all the prayers and positive, healing thoughts to help you recover. I'm amazed you were able to get this post done. Hopefully, someone will read these lovely comments to you. Just know we're thinking of you and miss you.

Susanne Vargas said...

Oje, das tut mir aber leid! Habe mich schon gewundert, was los ist und gedacht, ich sollte vielleicht mal emailen! Wollte dich gerade anrufen, aber nun finde ich deine Telefonnummer nicht mehr, die du mir nach meinem Unfall geschickt hast! Ich kann gut nachfühlen, wie es ist, wenn man nichts machen kann! Zum aus der Haut fahren! Hast du book on tape oder sowas?
Ganz liebe Grüsse für eine schnelle Genesung und viel Geduld,
Susanne
