The last couple weeks have really sucked. My health took a massive turn for the worse. What started as basic conjunctivitis quickly turned into a serious threat to losing all vision in my left eye because of the MRSA I have. Yesterday was a flurry of doctor visits getting shuffled around from one emergency place to another. Luckily, all is well as the new medication is working wonderfully and fast. I am so grateful to those who came to my rescue on this one. Life has slowed to a crawl, but that is NOT a complaint. I am perfectly content grilling out every day, laying around in bed with the cats, and watching obscene amounts of movies and TV shows. I am taking the summer more or less off.

I have this list of things I want to get done. I will get them done when it is convenient. Right now, enjoying life to the fullest takes priority. Riding my bike, hanging out with friends, laughing a lot, and feeling good; that is number 1 for the Rossman.

You know, even at the darkest moment, when it seemed like my eye hurt from the slightest light sensitivity, when the initial doctors panicked and sent me to an emergency clinic; you know what I thought? I thought I had seen a lot in the life. If I lost my ability to see, I cannot complain too loudly. From the joy of seeing little Lorenzo become the far happier kitten in my house to the sunlight in my window and to the sights of Europe and Africa I have seen; my eyes have beheld many wonders in my life thus far.

I am nothing but grateful for all that I have seen.

“If you love somebody enough you’ll follow wherever they go
That’s how I got to Memphis, that’s how I got to Memphis
If you love somebody enough you’ll go where your heart wants to go
That’s how I got to Memphis, that’s how I got to Memphis.”
– Tom T Hall
