Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Mine was good but quiet. You may have noticed I haven’t been around for a bit. Well I managed to cut my eye(cornea) with my fingernail putting on mascara and haven’t been able to see all that well. I’m on some antibiotics for it now so hopefully it will heal up fast and I can get back to reading and blogging. I was behind before and now I’m really behind as I can’t read a whole lot at a time.
I hope each of you has a wonderful New Year and that it brings you all lots of health and happiness!
Dar… you have been missed. I am sorry to hear that. I hope you feel better soon.
Dar, so sorry you had to deal with all that. I hope your eye mends quickly! Take care.
I did that once…not fun. I hope your eye heals quickly and that you are back to reading and blogging soon. We miss you!
Ouch!! Here’s wishing you all better for New Year’s! 🙂
Wow, ouch, I’ll bet that hurt. Hope you heal quickly!
Dar, so sorry to hear about your eye mishap. I thought maybe you were busy with holiday stuff. Sorry that isn’t the case. You’ve been missed. I hope your eye heals quickly. Take good care!
Red lady-Bonnie says
Dar, I’ve definitely missed you and assumed that you were busy with the holidays as well. I’m sorry to hear about your eye troubles. I’ve heard that is quite painful. I hope that it heals quickly and you’re back to normal soon.
Oh my goodness! Glad it’s on the mend. When my husband and I were first dating many years ago, I managed to somehow scrape his cornea with my fingernail. He did ask me out again….
Ouch! I’ve had problems with my corneas too, so I can understand your pain.
Hope the eye heals quickly.
We had a pretty quiet Christmas ourselves. Ouch! My eyes are watering with sympathy hope you feel better soon!

Glad you’re feeling well enough to pop in and say “hi” and let us know what’s been going on – I understand a scratched cornea can be very painful; the anitbiotics should make sure no infection brews!
I hope your Christmas was wonderful, Dar!
I had been wondering about you. My eldest did the same thing to my eye when she was little, we were playing ‘tickle monster’ when whamo — scratched cornea. In the words of my then little girl, “big ouchie”.
I hope your eye is feeling better soon!
Owie!! Hope it heals quickly and you’re back to your regular blogging (and reading) soon!
Oh no! Hope you have a speedy recovery. Another reason why I don’t wear mascara (the first being I’m too lazy to put it on).
Dar, I’m so glad to hear from you … I was getting worried! Ouch, the eye sounds painful. Scary! I hope it heals quickly.
Beth F says
Yikes! Scary and painful. Hope it heals quickly.
Happy New Year.
Hope you are feeling better today. 🙁
Oh, yikes! Eye injuries squick me out – hopefully yours heals quickly and cleanly!
Hope the antibiotics are helping, and you’ll be back to blogging in no time.
S. Krishna says
Owww…hope you get to feeling better soon!
Oh my goodness, now that is scary! I hope you heal swiftly so you can resume your reading. You may have to check out some audiobooks from the library in the meantime! Good luck and I will keep you in my prayers.
Oh my gosh, that sounds terrible!
I told my daughter she needs to be more careful putting on mascara. Do you have real long fingernails?
Linda Jacobs says
Oh, wow, that’s terrible! Our eyes are so important! Hope it heals soon!
I’m sorry to hear that about your eye Dar. Get well soon!
Happy New Year as well 🙂
Literary Feline says
Ouch! I hope your eye is back to feeling normal soon. Enjoy the New Year!
Dar – I’m so sorry to hear you hurt yourself! And in the eye! Ouch! I hope you heal quickly so you can get back in your groove. Happy New Year to you! 🙂
Bandit Jack says
ouch, dar! my mom scratched her cornea once too. she said it was REALLY painful. hope you heal up soon!!
Oh my! I’m sorry to hear about your eye. I’m glad you have the antibiotics to ward off any infection. Hopefully you already have some relief. (I’ve been on vacation, so I haven’t posted until today, either.)
Ouch! Hope you recover soon!!
Susan Helene Gottfried says
Heal fast, Dar! And early Happy New Year, too.
(this message is from Susan, not “the gang at Win a Book” — although I can leave a second one if you’d like!)
I know how painful an eye injury is. I hope you’re better soon. Glad to hear you had a good holiday.
J. Kaye Oldner says
Oh! My! Gosh! I am so very sorry. I thought you were just taking a Christmas break.
Get better soon! 🙁
Yikes! I hope you feel better soon. I’ve been absent too with family in town and the holidays in full force 🙂
Oh my gosh Dar. I hope you’re OK!
Michele at Reader's Respite says
Jeepers, Dar, that’s awful! Perhaps some audiobooks are in order??? 😉
Merry Christmas and happy new year to you as well, Dar! I hope the eye gets to feeling better.
Thanks for the well wishes everyone. I appreciate it. The eye is almost healed.
