Why hello there. You may know me as nicarus, but for those of you who do not, I am Robin's extremely handsome and fantastic son. We have been planning on...or at least talking about having me as a guest blogger every once in a while for quite some time now. We will entitle this guest series "Son of a Witch." Although today was not penciled into our schedules as the first time I would write a post, a distressing and afflictive turn of events necessitated my involvement with Wiccan Writes.
Now...what, you ask, is this particular turn of events?
It is my unfortunate duty to notify you of the current situation regarding Robin and her left cornea. Apparently, upon waking yesterday (Wed, July 20th), after petting the female canines, Robin viciously poked herself in the eye with her thumb. She is uncertain whether she was in the process of tying her hair back or some other activity involving the close proximity of her hand to her eye, but she scratched her cornea like nobody's business.
She is temporarily blind in her left eye for now, but considerable progress has already been made with healing and her vision (well, at least being able to read a giant projected E is progress) . The doctor said that if the scratch was the size of a half-dollar yesterday, it is now the size of a quarter to a silver dollar...A comparison that would be lost to anyone born in the 90s. It is a painful time for her especially because she isn't able to read, write, or follow her blogs. But fear not! For nicarus is here! I will read aloud as many blogs as my vocal chords will allow and likewise, Robin will dictate to me the thoughts and feelings she has regarding her magickal, albeit stressful and painful (for now) life, and I will in turn type them for her. Oh yes, because my friend Chris, whose photos have been featured in previous posts, is out of town, I will also try my hand at being a photographer.
It is uncertain at this moment how long she will be in pain or when her left eye vision will return. She is in high spirits, though, and never misses an opportunity to laugh.
She fears this will put a damper on this coming weekend with her daughter Raethan, chiefly because this is Raethan's last weekend home as an unmarried woman. The crafty and flowery things she had planned to accomplish this weekend for the wedding will now be carried out by myself and Raethan under the not-so-watchful eye of Robin.
So concludes the first installment of Son of a Witch.
