Friendship

~Friends are the best to turn to when having a rough day~
How to say thank you for the wonderful friendship I share with you..... I treasure all of you who take the time to visit and for your kind words. I am off work all of next week so I will be looking to find an Ophthalmologist for my second opinion. First I will tell you that my eyes are feeling better. For now, Mr H picked me up Thera Tears, a lubricant for dry eyes. The gritty feeling is gone and actually today the pain is much less. Still blurry on and off, but I am not expecting miracles...yet. A big test will be going to work today..... scanning prices measuring and so on. Bright lights are still a bother also. Going to keep positive thoughts. I am finding it easier to hand stitch right now so I  have strted a crazy quilt pincushion....

so I grabbed some fabric scraps. I will hopefully get the piecing down this weekend so I can start the fun part, embellishing. My plan is to finish it as a "cd" pincushion. If you have not heard of this method, I will share more on it later when it comes to the finishing. I need to find a button from my collection as well as some trims to add. I think a stump-work bug may be in the mix. I always like the embellishing/finishing part. Our day is starting out cool and breezy. The garden is looking okay...some of our petunias have decided not to stay...but the ones that are growing wild with no care are doing well. The snail vine is needing a trim. The zinnias are bright and cheerful......
they are glowing in the sun light. Mr H has them in pots here and there so the color pops constantly. Speaking of flowers, I just ordered some to be sent to my mom...EvaP. I have a good rapport with a Rhode Island florist that I have been doing business with for well over 15 years. It is so nice to be able to call and have flowers sent and know they will always be wonderful. They keep me on file and those that I send to so it is easy. They are close enough to my family for quick delivery in in the winter months. I guess that about covers it for today my dear friends..... thank you for caring and your kind words. Hope you have a wonderful day.
PS: June card exchange start up..... if you wish to be added for June let me know. If you are new to the group, please email me you mailing info.

I am so glad you are getting a second opinion, I work for the Phillips Eye Institute in Minneapolis Mn. a couple of days each month.
It is always better to get a second opinion, however tell you next Dr. that your eyes were burning when they dilated your eyes, you may be allergic to the dilation solution.
Good luck, dry eye is something that can be handled with a whet solution.
Please keep us updated.

Blessings
Catherine

Glad to hear your eyes are slightly better. It is a good idea to get another opinion.

I'm in for the June exchange please. But did I miss the May one? I'm sure I signed up for it? Or did I dream that bit?

Oh Gracie! I'm so sorry to hear about your eyes. After going back and reading your last 3 posts, did you mention to the eye doctor about your having a migraine & being ill? I just have to wonder if those symptoms have anything to do with what you are experiencing now.
Hope this gets resolved so your not in pain. love Annette

I'm glad things are improving with your eyes Grace, keep going with the tears though they really do help. It will be good to hear what an expert has to say and I hope you're able to work okay. I look forward to seeing your new pincushion.
