Imagine you are seven years years old. You are lying in a hospital with both eyes bandaged. You will lose one eye. You might lose your sight entirely. Your mother is very distressed.
A visitor comes to see you. She is a little girl who has lost an eye. You never get to see her face but you don’t ever forget her words and how they comforted you and your mother.
I’ve just published a new story Live The Dream by Tony Armenti. In it Tony sends a message of thanks to that little girl Francis Isaia.
At the end of Tony’s story we have included I’ve Been Proposed To Five Times which is Francis telling her own story of how things worked out for her.
Both stories give important perspective on the trauma of eye loss. At the time it is pretty tough going but things do get better. Much better.
