Dublb, re-read Jeanie's message. It speaks for all of us very well. You know your own limits. I value your friendship.
I am still forging ahead, but see road blocks with my eye surgery for a time I will be down, but not out. The drops before and after for a week each time will limit me on a temporary basis, and I truly hope its all temporary, and admit its scary. Risky the one and only eye is a risk; its the only choice I have.... and hoping for the best. What will be, will be.
I did finally stop that new d@!! run-away stitchin' machine. But not with the "Whoa!" It will be DH sew machine to use. Whew. I am happy about that. On crazy occasions, I might use it. I am just too set in my ways at what I am used too at my age I guess. Its my Comfort zone.
