Carolina Girl (Cely)
Yes, it's been six months.  I was in the midst of selling our house and building a new house when things went askew.  The house sold before our house was built which left us homeless.  I moved in with different friends during that time while my DH took up residence with one of his friends.

Internet was troublesome....  internet usage was minimal in some locations.

Once into our new house, there was lots of unpacking and finding items.  Then...my biggest trouble began.  I was losing my sight in one eye. Example, if I was looking at a car or a person, I could only see 1/2 of them and any image left was very distorted.  I was diagnosed with being in the stage 4 of having a macular  hole.  Two surgeons teamed up and they preformed their miracles.  Recovery was 4 weeks. I won't go into detail, but the weird things you have to do for a good recovery is weird and hard.  Anyhoooo, the gas bubble implanted in my eye was a success and now gone and the stitches in my eye have been removed.  My vision will improve over the next 6 months - 1 year.

I don't know where/how to begin with my card making.  I hope it's like bicycle riding and I will feel comfortable soon.  I am getting ready to make a card....almost scary...haha

Thanks to all for the support and Doodle Pantry for letting me take the time off to move and recover.... A wonderful leader and team there.

OK...time to go make a card!!!!!!!!

    Welcome back to blogland! Sorry to hear about the eye issues (I can relate!). Glad all is going well, and healing is under way!


  8. Wow Cely, you really have had a time of it. I'm so glad you are back and that you are on the road to recovery. How scary to be losing your sight. I'm pretty sure card making is just like riding a bicycle...I was away from it for 3 years and came back...it was fun and exciting and since you're such an awesome card marker, it will be super easy for you. Can't wait to see what you create. I've missed you!!!
