Eye problem

Postby KatieS » Fri Aug 05, 2016 7:56 pm

Reluctantly, I'm posting that I will not be going to Boulder due to this sudden eye problem. My husband had a 3rd cardiac hospitalization this week and I developed these fleeting cobwebs. Well, I thought it was just stress-induced floaters, but as it turns out I have bleeding, so will be monitoring. Funny how my almost 99 y/o mom has suffered with trifocals all her life, and me with the 20/20 vision has this!

I'm so disappointed that I won't be meeting all of you during this conference. The dinners are set and our dear Julie can alert restaurants if more join in last minute.

I am so sorry about your eye problem and your husband's cardiac hospitalization. We will miss you in Boulder. We appreciate all your hard work in setting up the dinners. I will try to take good notes and perhaps we can get together sometime when convenient for you and you feel up to it.
Sending good wishes and concern for you and your husband.

Oh no! I'm so sad for you, KatieS. I was looking forward to meeting you and thanking you for all your hard work in person. Now you won't be able to enjoy the fruits of your work. You must be terribly disappointed, I'm so sorry. Sending lots of healing thoughts your way.
