I hope your eye is okay! My doctor told me to call if there was any change, and I'll get rechecked at the 6 week point. In the meantime, I am learning to adapt to these $%^@## floaters. They're pretty annoying!

This happened to me years ago, so I'm good. It is good you are getting checked out again in 6 weeks, that is what my Dr. did as well.

Yes, the new floaters are very annoying. For the most part mine have either settled down or I have gotten used to them. So, it will get better.

All in all, much better than a detached retina.

From today's Monday newsletter:

Thank You, Everyone!

Thank you so much for your well wishes, virtual hugs, and healing prayers. I am overwhelmed by your outpouring of love and support. I may not be able to ďsee youĒ very well right now, but I can certainly feel your healing energy and it means more to me than you know.

Iím feeling okay overall. Recovery is slow, but as we all know, healing is a process and has to be taken day by day. Iíve been cleared to stand up and move around now and boy does that feel great!!! Iím still not allowed to work out at this time and have to be cautious as my vision and depth perception still have a long way to go before anything will feel normal. So Iím keeping it low-key, following doctorís orders, and getting plenty of recovery rest and reflection.

I hope all of you are steadily pushing through your fitness routines with energy in your muscles and joy in your hearts! I canít wait until the day that I can join you once again! Stay strong, Cathletes!

Love and hugs,

Wow, that is so scary. I am glad Cathe got it checked in time. It is good to see her smiling face after going through all that. I am sending good wishes her way to a speedy, relaxing recovery.
