Reluctant Blog Break

A quick note to say that I’m having unexpected eye surgery today and the recovery might affect my reading and reviewing ability. It will certainly affect my computer use. So I’m reluctantly announcing a two-week blog break. Be well, reading friends!


      • Oh gosh no! A couple of my friends have had surgery for detached retinas though and recovered completely so fingers crossed for you. Look forward to having you back blogging again before too long

      • Thank you for your encouraging words Janette! Hope to be back soon! Right now I can manage comments using my iPad.

  1. Oh Carol, I’m so sorry you had eye surgery today! I hope you have a fast recovery!! I will miss your posts, but take time to get the rest your eye needs. Perhaps audiobooks would be just what the doctor ordered for right now??

  2. Dear Carol,
    I’m sorry to hear this. Good luck and be well. Thanks as always for your amazing blog and all the fabulous info you share! You are amazing! I use so much for my book club and share with so many friends! Speedy recovery!

    • Awww! Thanks so much for your sweet words! I appreciate your comments Diane! I’m thrilled to hear you enjoy my blog and that it’s been instrumental in your reading life. Everything has to be set aside to deal with detached retina!

  3. So sorry to hear about your eye surgery and hope healing will be complete. I look forward to all the information about books that you send. You have an excellent blog. I will look for you in two weeks!!

    • Thank you so much Sharon! I’m so happy to hear you enjoy the blog! Thanks for commenting! I’m eager to get this detached retina surgery behind me!

  4. Oh my Carol! I’m so sorry you are dealing with this. I can tell you for sure that resting the eyes is a very necessary part of eye surgery recovery. I still have to go lay in a dark room to rest mine. I start my light therapy treatments next week.

    Grant yourself some grace to take care of those eyes. We’ll all be here when you get back!

    Best wishes to you and your surgical team.

  5. I hope that the surgery was successful and you have a quick recovery. Think of all the audiobooks you can listen to!

    • Thanks! Surgery was successful. I think the recovery period may take a while but I can get back to blogging a a couple of weeks when I don’t have to be so careful to maintain a certain head position. Audio books to the rescue!
