1.) I was cleaning the kitchen.(Using oven cleaner at that time)

6.) Hospital from 10:00 PM to 2:30AM
7.) Ron Drives from Elko to pick me up at the hospital 2:30AM Dec. 2, 2005

The Next Afternoon
December 2, 2005.


I was ordered to see Dr. Hendrik Louw at 2:30 PM. Ron brought me to the hospital and back at around 4:30 PM.

I'm not going blind! Thank God! It's going to be blurry and painful, but it will heal. First Aid got it where it's most critical. otherwise, I would have become blind.

Chemical burn first aid: Flush Flush Flush with water !!! (In my case it's been about about 3 hours total flushing). 30 minutes at home, 30 minutes in the ambulance, & 2 hours at the hospital. That saved my eye.

I learned from this.

02. Ron's Birthday Today

Wednesday, December 14, 2005

2 Weeks later, with eye drops every 5 hours everyday, my right eye is back to normal. I can see clearly now. The world is clear once again. Thank Goodness!

Today is Ron's Birthday!

Ron (my BF), Frank (Ron's Dad) & Myself went to Fernie BC (The Curry Bowl Restaurant) for Ron's Birthday Dinner today. A month ago, we were in the same restaurant doing the same thing. Only difference is that it was my birthday then. Ron is now 51.

05. My FIRST Snowman

Thursday, December 22, 2005

Today, I made my very first snow man (age: 30). I was told to make a small ball of snow and just roll it. I tried that but the snow kept crumbling. So Instead, I got a shovel and a round metal basin and just started molding ( In other words, I cheated). It was fun! I laughed like a little kid while making it! How I've forgotten what it's like to be a kid!

09. Picture Frames
Friday, December 30, 2005

Pictures of Family & Friends. Christmas. I miss all of them. These frames are just 5 of many more that are all over my bedroom. I have picture frames of friends and family on my Bedside table, on my desk, on Book shelves. All I have now are memories. That's hard.
