I first want to apologize for the lack of updates in the past week. I knew it was going to be a busy week, but I never expected all of this to happen at once. First, the good news. It looks like our first child is on the way. It has been an incredibly exciting and busy week once we found out. Since it is our first, there will be a lot of new experiences going on, so it will be interesting to see how well I can juggle everything. But, the good news is I should finally have some first hand experience that will provide some money saving tips when having a child to write about.
But with the good news comes the bad. This week I was also diagnosed with keratoconus. It is a degenerative disease of the cornea on my eye that makes it difficult to see. Right now, it’s only my left eye, but it makes sitting at the computer quite unpleasant. It was a bit shocking because this condition developed rapidly over the course of just a few weeks. Through my left eye, it is almost like looking through a window coated with vasoline while the right eye is fine. This is a great way to get headache when you’re trying to focus on and read text. I’m going to be trying some special contact lenses next week to try and fix the problem, but it is probably going to require a cornea transplant. I hope this can be put off for quite some time, but we’ll have to see what happens.
