It's Over for Now

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray to God my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
I Pray the Lord my soul to take.
Those are two of the prayers I said today. The experience was not unpleasant, but the awakening of the eye a few hours later is a bit uncomfortable, but not more than I can handle. I just want you all
to know that the encouragement, the experience of you that have had similar experiences, helped me to go forward with this. I slept most of the afternoon and am heading to bed as soon as I finish this post.
It's okay. It's over. And I'm very much sober. Just won't get much
better than that.
Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • My right eye
  • Being sighted
  • Daave
  • All y'all.

Now y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

Zane...BRAVO! Ya DID it! And after, you seem to be OK, except maybe tired. Some of that is the stress of the whole thing...God bless you.

This comment may be a little late in coming, but it packs with it as much gratitude as I can have that your ordeal is over and that for now - all is well.

Thank God.
