Hello to all Fern's friends. This is Heidi, mom from Two Goldens and a Wannabe, posting for Fern. I spoke to Fern this evening, and she wants everyone to know that although physically she is healing from her fall, she did sustain a concussion from falling. She is having trouble working with the computer, and so has been unable to blog. The doctor tells her she should bounce back, but she needs to rest and let her brain heal. I know I was worried about her, and I imagine her other blog friends are too, so I said I would try and get on her blog to let everyone know what is going on. I hope you will join me in wishing Fern the best and send good wishes for a quick recovery.
I am still sore from the fall. I am healing pretty good tho! I can not see at all tho! it is so hard to be on the computer!! I WISH Wish I could blog!! I so want to blog about the rest of my story!! BUT
Love coming your way, Fern and the cats
Thank you so much for you all worrying about me. It was a very bad fall!! Tom was out shopping and I had started to fix a big salad for our lunch. I had put a lot of our home grown tomatoes and some red onions and cucumber & carrots in the salad too. Then I went out to get some kale and mustard greens we are growing on the back patio. They are so good when young!! So good in salads!!!
You know I have been dizzy alot lately- Yes?? Days I had been dizzy but not Saturday. I would not have gone out if I had been dizzy!!! Any way I went out and squat "sorry can not spell" to pick the greens and when I went to stand up everything went round and round!!!!! I took a face first down on the patio!!! Blood--- I bleed like a stuck pig!! no thank goodness I only broke my glasses and probably creaked a rib or two!! For a 79 year old in December not bad!!!!
I was staying with my Grandparents and it was time to go to New York City for my second eye surgery. We left for the City before day light. When we got to the hospital Dad and Mom were there-- they probably had not been to bed yet!! They took us up to where I would wake up after surgery. The room that would be my home for 4 to 5 weeks after surgery. The Doctor came in shortly after we got in that room!! He came over to me and asked if I was ready to go to surgery and i said I guess!!??~~~~~~~~ The Doctor said he was so ready to FIX my eye!! He said he knew what to do this time!! What he had done the first time and he was going to do it better this time!! He would tie my bad eye to my good eye SO that what ever my good eye did-- my bad eye would do also!!!
My good eye would drag~~~ control my bad eye!!!
Back ground on my Dad!!
My Dad was born sighted. he went to first grade and second grade and to the third!! In the forth grade he went blind!!!!! He was blind until he was 18 years old!!! His parents had very little education They both worked!! Dad had very little to do with himself all day long. He listened to the radio a lot . They had a paino and he taught himself to play it. By the time he was 18 he played very well!! don't know how he got his job with the group of men that he worked for for so long!!!!
I fell Saturday am,,, face first on the back paito!!! Hurt my self pretty bad!! I look like and feel like I have been run over with a truck!! WE didn't have our great week-end like we usually do!!!!
love coming your way!!! Fern and the cats
