Milestones that made me happy this June 2018.

Blog, El Salvador, Family

I’m still waiting for a grade to be published but I’m out of the semester, now! ❤ This was the most dreading semester ever but, at the same time, having survived it feels so rewarding! I’ve been studying since August ’17 non-stop and I really needed a time off to restart myself. I’m trying to wake up early but without the need of an alarm, I’m cultivating myself in things that are not University related but I’m working every day and also, I’m taking care of myself, specially, of my eye condition.

I had a surgery on June. Funny thing is, I went to the ophthalmologist because I wanted a general review. In that review, she found some dangerous capsules in my eyes that needed to me taken out immediately, or else I would die (her actual words). I was so scared because I have never had a surgery of any kind before. I was alone. My battery was at 3%, I couldn’t even talk to my family and tell them what was going on.

I went to the waiting room and thank God, one of my friends reached me to ask what was going on and he took care of telling my family what was happening. I received a call to the doctor’s office from my family and everything about my transportation home after  the surgery was ready.

So, I went in the surgery room by myself and I was so nervous. The doctor injected me painkiller and then started working. I got really worried when he was scared to see what my eye had. But more than worried, I was sad. I was sad to myself. Because I always thought it was a matter of sleeping more and rest and don’t be in front of the computer that much time, but it seems I had a big infection in both of my eyelids and those capsules in my right eye. I was sad because I misunderstood all those symptoms and thought that “sleeping later” will take care of it.

After a lot of time (I didn’t even have my phone to see how long it took the operation), I looked like a pirate, went to the pharmacy to buy my medicine and went home to thank God for His Mercy and to sleep.

I started taking the pills and putting the drops and being very disciplined about it. The very next week, I had another consultation and it seems that my scar was closing pretty and my infection was dropped down! I’m having a new consultation next week. I hope my infection is getting more defeated than last time!

I’m pretty happy I survived all of this, I’m beyond grateful to God for allowing me to be here after all this time carrying with those capsules and infection in my eyes, anything could have went wrong but it didn’t because He didn’t want to. And here I am, still, working as hard and as smart as I can but with the extra care and attention that my body needs.

I don’t know about you but I really feel that that was a great milestone this June and quite a dangerous adventure, to be honest!

But also I had one milestone in my digital life. While I was looking like a pirate without actually being able to connect to my computer, YOU helped me achieved a new milestone!
