As most of you know, I usually put up a new blog post every day or two, but I’ve been “missing in action” lately. The reason? I had cauterization surgery on my right eye last week for a medical problem, and the recovery has been slower (and more painful) than I’d expected.
I’d forgotten how being in discomfort can dominate your life, to the point where you don’t feel much like doing anything. I saw the surgeon yesterday and told him I was surprised at how much pain I was in. He reminded me I’d just had an operation, so I suppose my expectations of sailing through all of this quickly were perhaps a little high.
And of course, I’ve looked like devil’s spawn, even to myself. (A neighbour loaned me a pirate-style patch, but it was very uncomfortable. How does Johnny Depp do it?)
I managed to get myself out the door a few times for necessities, but really, I’ve spent most of the past week feeling sorry for myself, hiding out at home, and sleeping as much as possible. The nice thing is that I work in such a great office: these gorgeous flowers were delivered this week with a note from my fellow realtors saying they hoped I’d be back at work soon. A lovely boost to morale!
Here’s hoping I’ll see them soon! I should be back to my usual blogging schedule in the next couple of weeks, and I have lots of news, so stay tuned!
