Wednesday rolls around so fast!!

That is Allie on her feet!!!

For those of you that do not KNOW----- I am losing my sight slowly---but surely!!!  I am losing my hearing as well but I have a very healthy body for an old woman!!!   It is going to be awful awful awful when I can't see enough to be on the computer!!!!   It will be awful when I can't hear
any more!!!!!  I will be so isolated not being able to see and not being able to hear!!!
I will be so lonely!!!   I am trying to mentally prepare  myself for this and that is how I do it by telling you all about it!!  I don't want you to say oh you poor thing!!!!!!   REALLY!!!!
I just want you to know that when I get to your blog and leave a comment I have worked very hard to do so!!!!  VERY VERY hard!!!   So I may not always make it to your blog but know as long as I can I will blog!!!  So long as I can!!!!!!
It scares me a lot what is happening to me!!!!!! 
I love you all so much!!!! 


  1. No worries there! We will always know that you stopped by - even if no comment is left. ;)

    Monty and Harlow

  2. Hey Fern!
    Wow, your kitties are so adorable! Great pix of them all lined up and I wonder what they are looking at. Sending lots of love and hugs to you today, my furiend.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Pol Comm

  3. I know that it isn't easy for you to read and to comment and I enjoy it always when I hear from you. Allie is a big girl! Have a good wednesday

  4. I know it is not easy Fern and I have you in my thoughts. Your outlook is good Fern, keep going and I always love your visits and know how you struggled to do so. Now I have heard your voice I can also relate more. Love your kitties x

  5. Oh dear Fern, my heart breaks for you and all you have to deal with. We have always deeply appreciated your visits and comments, but if you can't do it, you simply can't do it. I sure wish something could be done for you. I'm so sorry this has happened to you. Prayers will be with you.

  6. Hi Auntie Fern! We love your visits, but certainly understand when you don't make it by.

    Your pals,

    Bart, Ruby and Otto

  7. We love you Fern!! And we understand about getting older :( xox

  8. We love you too, Auntie Fern!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  9. Do they know what is causing your loss of vision? My mom has macular degeneration and she gets shots in her eyes to help slow down the loss of vision. Would hearing aids assist with the hearing loss?

  10. No worries, you do what you got to do.
    Lily & Edward

  11. We love reading your blog and appreciate every letter you type and every picture you post. Most of all...we are grateful for YOU and keep you in our prayers!!!

  12. Hi Fern, that must be so hard. Never feel like you have to comment. I know how hard it for me to get around and comment on friends' blogs and I can see so I can imagine the effort it must be for you. Take it easy, we will always come to you!

  13. My grandmother is struggling with the same issues. Do what you can and know we are here and we know you are there even if you don't comment. Take care!

  14. Yes, I can tell you from experience that you will face isolation and loneliness. The world is for the hearing and sited masses and they are not accustomed to allowing those of us who have one or both of the necessary functions impaired.

    I hear very little without my hearing aids and even with them, I still hear very little. People are unwilling to understand that TURNING UP the hearing aids does not mean that the wearer will be able to hear or understand what is being said. And how many times have you needed to do something and it requires the use of a phone? Even making a doctors appointment is next to impossible.

    I feel for you and know the struggles you are facing.

  15. Oh is VERY scary to know that you are losing two of your senses. I recently got some news about my sight that I can share with you privately in an e-mail (because I haven't told my family yet).

    Maybe you could start learning sign language now? When I was in school, I knew two deaf, blind girls who used sign language. The person they were talking with would put their hand on theirs so they could feel the signs the person was making and then they could sign back.

    Many hugs and purrs and prayers for you. <3

  16. My heart goes out to you, Fern, as you deal with this. You know we will always love you. I hope the progression can be slowed, but, if not, know we are always with you in spirit. You have a wonderful support group!

  17. Oh Fern ..... I have just met you and will come to read all of your posts from now on. You sound just like my dear Mum only you are much younger than she. She is 96 and is almost totally blind from macular degeneration and she is deaf as well. Like you, Fern, she prepared herself for many years when she knew what was happening to her. She is still a wonderful and much loved part of our family. You just have to stay positive and do what you can and keep smiling!! My thoughts will be with you.
    Love, Lynn (Charlie's Mum).
