This Week's Blog Post

Blue Earrings
These pretties are mountain jade that is dyed a beautiful royal blue! Available at Etsy.

A ride up the coast!  
Always good for the soul!!!
We ended up in our favorite town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
I always love these trees and their cool curvy branches!
Healing Update
I no longer need to see my eye doctor every week! It will be 2 weeks before my next appointment and hopefully after that, just my 3 month post op! My left pupil is still huge but she says that it is better if my pupil stays in one place while the swelling is healing. Otherwise cells and "stuff" float around and can hinder the healing. I love when doctors use terms like "stuff" instead of the scary medical terms. It just sounds less intimidating. 

It sounds quite possible that my body has decided to maintain a large pupil until the swelling goes down further and then may go back to normal. The body is a fascinating thing!

My doctor also does not feel there is a systemic issue of some disease underlying either. When she sees patients this type of uveitis who do have other issues, she says they walk differently. Basically it really affects them. I do not feel any different. That also made me super happy. I feel like I am getting my spark back which was dying for a couple of weeks!!! 

July has been a super busy month for my business. Why July? I have no idea but busy is always a good thing! So it has been difficult to make my blogging rounds but hopefully I will be on track again soon.

Thank you for stopping by! ~Val


  1. Glad to hear that things are "looking up!" Sorry, couldn't resist!

  2. Wonderful pictures of your trip! And these trees are stunning!
    Good to hear you are on a good way of healing.

  3. Oh Val, I'm so happy to hear this! Hopefully the swelling will go down completely. Take it easy! And that's good news about your business too! Glad you had a nice trip to the coast...nature always calms me down :)

    p.s. I didn't know that jade could be dyed!

    So glad to hear you're on the mend and got good news from your doctor!
    Congrats on a busy month as well :)

  6. Val, these earrings are wonderful. I'm thinking jeans, and a little white shirt, with them. Just perfect.

    It sounds like you are doing well, and I'm so glad that you have your spark back!! :-)

    Glad to hear your eyes are healing. It must be nice not to have to bother with the glasses anymore!

    Enjoy the summer ;)

  9. It's late at night & I'm still sick, wasn't able to sleep. Decided to come visit some bloggy friends. Your pictures are so pretty! Love all the nature shots. =0)
    Glad to hear that you don't have to visit the eye doctor every week now. That's progress, and progress is good. Maybe in time that pupil will go back to normal. Like you said, the body is a fascinating thing!

  10. The beach photos are Lovely. That peony looks really pretty. Sounds like you might be on the mend slowly. All the best x

  11. Val, I am so happy everything is going well with your eyes!! Yepee!! Your photos of your adventure are beautiful!! Love the earrings! The color is great! Funny, I have had a busy July too? You never know? Big Hugs and be well ;o)

  12. I'm glad to hear you're "sparking" again. lovely pictures, there is nothing as relaxing as time on a beach, except maybe time in the mountains. :0)

  13. Hi Val,

    So glad your eyes are doing well. I'm sure when your pupil is ready and only when it decides it is ready, it will go down to normal size.

    I don't think I've ever been to NH....loved your photos. Your earrings of course, as always, are beautiful. I hope you have a great weekend with Jim ahead.


  14. glad to know everything is getting better :)

  16. Good to hear that there are no other diseases, I am sure your pupil will go back to normal in due time! Busy is always good.

    Have a good weekend ahead! Hugs

    PS: I have to get that nasty stuff for the nails :/

  17. Whew! You're right. The body is super amazing. Everything is connected in a way that is super fascinating. When your eye finishes healing, I think it will go down to size.

    Love the curvy tree limbs photo. That would make a very interesting silhouette.

  18. Good to hear that you are busy! Always good news. Your road trip looks delightful.
