Being silly in recovery means Jeni is OK! 🙂

Happy new year, my lovelies!

I’ve received a ton of emails over the last couple of months, asking if Morning Coffee and Happy Hour are still going on.  I love all of the support and love for those series on the blog!

Leaving the hospital, looking super stylish!

The quick and short answer is that I had to have emergency eye surgery on November 20th – and having one functioning eye while the other is healing from trauma via surgery is pretty tough!  Sarah and I decided to take a break from Morning Coffee and Happy Hour for a bit, to let it heal and let my vision come back.  

A positive attitude makes a HUGE difference! Plus, I’m a pirate now!

Good news! Morning Coffee and Happy Hour will be BACK this month!  Woohoo!  Thank you all for the awesome emails and love you show for these series – we love that you enjoy your morning coffee with us every morning and can’t wait to get back to it!

The longer version:  I have ICE Syndrome in my left eye.  You can find out more about that rare disorder HERE.  I also shared my story and a photo of my eye on Morning Coffee a couple of years ago.  See that HERE.  It’s unpredictable, and I have a rare form of Glaucoma in that eye because of it. On November 19th, the pressure in my eye suddenly skyrocketed. Normal range is 8-21. Mine was 62.  This was extremely dangerous and I could have lost my eye, so emergency surgery was the only option.  The pain was unbelievable and unbearable, but I got through it, and every week, my vision gets better.  I don’t have to wear the eye patch anymore now… but miss kids pointing and saying, “Mommy! I see a pirate!”  or “Mom!  That lady only has one eye!”  😉

      Thanks, Dana! Super rare – so I’m like a lab rat at the doctor’s office! LOL

        It sounds really painful. I clicked on the link you posted and teared up a bit thinking about it because my eyes are real sensitive. I hope you have a great weekend Jeni!
