Tomorrow is the Big Day

April 13 - The reason that the true Master does not complain is that the true Master is not suffering, but simply experiencing a set of circumstances that you cal insufferable. Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" page 107
Hi y'all. Hope you had a fun day yesterday. I spent the day at Joe's with a couple of other friends. Joe fixed a great Leg of Lamb with my potatoes, onions, and carrots. The other two friends brought a salad and a chocolate raspberry cake. A good time and full tummies was enjoyed by all. In fact as soon as I finish this post I will have me the piece of cake I brought home last night. Now that is a miracle that a piece of cake survived in my house for over 24 hours. Truth be told, I actually forgot all about it until I just wrote about it. Me forgetting cake - well, it did happen.
Tomorrow is my eye injection day. Daave and Hayden are picking me up about 12:15 or 12:30 and hauling my BA out to the eye doctors. I'm as nervous as I would be if I were sliding down a razor sharp banister into a vat of alcohol. OH SHIT, OUCH! Well maybe not.
Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, My Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • My Right Eye
  • Being Sighted
  • being sober to face this
  • Praying for the Doctor's steady hand as she jabs the needle in my eye.
  • For those of you that have had similar treatment and assured me I would not feel anything.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah!

Prayers are for you tomorrow Zane...mainly I'll ask God to free you from unnecessary anxieties.

That's the one thing I ask for myself, and you know what? Like your cake, I did not think about this until now, writing about it...but I have not had real anxiety for a Blong time, really! Well, in honesty, one year, almost to the day.

But I ain't gonna talk about that here...Glad to read you tonight, Zane. I'll be thinking of you, man!

Good luck for tomorrow Zane. I survived the injection, have another coming up in May. So I guess a person of your talents, ( being able to resist cake for 24 hrs) will have no problem with it.

.. Keep on keepin' on, aye? I know I was freaked when I went thru a vitrectomy a coupla months back (mainly 'cause I was silly enuff to Google the procedure!). But, it went by lickety-split.
.. My thoughts are with you today, Zane. And a prayer, too!

Keep The Faith*

It's Tuesday night so I'm praying that the results of the injection will be the hoped for outcome.

God bless and "peace".
