Today's journal page, it feels so good to be doing them again. This started out with the card with the dress. I used Neocolor II WC crayons to extend the color into the background, then stamped with a word stamp I drew the lady in pencil on old book papers and attached her with gel medium. She was painted with Portfolio oil pastels. It was the first time I tried a face with them. The flower was white which I colored with stamp pad ink. I added a small jewel in the center. I used glossy accents to glue it down. Its my all purpose glue for embellishments. After writing I thought oh I shouldn't have used my own handwriting or perhaps I should have printed it, but alas its too late now so all is good.
The report back on Dave's eye is that it could have been a stroke, no way to be sure. Other tests they could do are way way way too expensive. So they will just let it be for now and check him in a month to see if the swelling in the nerve goes down. If that happens some vision could return but if not then he will just have to adjust to having one eye that doesn't work very well. Not the best news but there are many people out there in his position who do just fine.
