I am still here....

and still HOT, as most of us are right now.  I am so anxious for Fall.

I had a bit of a scare recently.  My vision in my left eye started bothering me.  I thought it was a floater, but when I went in to get some new contacts and glasses, I was told I have a dent on my cornea.  No, I didn't know that could happen either.  Apparently, it is a side effect of chemo that he was aware of.  There really isn't anything that can be done, I just have to adjust to it.

I immediately thought, oh someday, the day I don't want to rush...but someday the Lord will make me whole again and I won't have dented corneas anymore, no cancer, no achey ness....white teeth....and we will all find out that the perfect size is not an 8!!

So of course, when I see my oncologist in a couple of weeks, I am sure he is going to want to address this.  I have had so many different meds during this cancer....that I should be thankful it is only a dented cornea, and that my cornea just didn't fall off!!

We are praying right now for Ro's brother.  He has been battling cancer for approximately 7 or 8 years.  He is quite weak right now....so if you think of it, they would appreciate your prayers.

Someday, someone will find a cure for the dreaded C......I tell my doctor that after I am gone, they better not find out that standing on your head eating a banana is the cure!!  He said...."well, did you try that???"  See, there really is some humor in all of this!

Dented Ceekay signing off till next time!!



Oh honey, I never heard of a dented eye cornia..my goodness, but as long as it doesn't jeopardize your vision, that's a blessing. I'm so happy your're doing fine, dearest Ceekay and I will pray for you and for your friend's bro. Yes, I do hope and pray they will find a cure for the big C, the sooner, the better! Thank you for sharing and have a nice and safe weekend.

Oh shoot! I hate that you have a dented cornea but glad you still have one and still have your sense of humor - you're amazing, you know that? Will pray for Ro's family ... and you, too, while I'm at it. Mary

I love your humor and positive attitude. I have never heard of a dented cornea...will look it up. My prayers are for Ro's brother and you.

If it's not one thing with this cancer it's another. My learning curve is constant and ongoing.

White teeth? Does the chemo cause teeth darkening? I brush my teeth a million times and day and cant get the metal taste out of my mouth.

It's sad about your cornea and I appreciate the sharing. Every piece of information I tuck away in my brain in my "someday I might need this" place.

I feel so bad for everyone that is so hot with this summer. We so rarely even have to use our AC here in the summer, with most of our days very comfortable. Many homes - mostly older - don't even have ACs.

Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Marla

I never knew that there were so many side effects from Chemo. Still I am thankful that you endure as you are so treasured.
