Wow, it has been over a month since my last posting. I have been keeping as busy as I can on the new site directory, and it is basically ready to launch. I just need to work on a couple of things that might make things go more smoothly later on.
Alas, with me not really knowing what I am doing, I am quite sure I am doing everything the hard way. A lot of that has to do with my eyesight still being fairly poor, which keeps me from learning the codes that could automate much of what I am (and will be) doing manually.
No, I did not get the cataract surgery on my eyes. The plan was for the doctor who has been treating me with the Avastin shots to pass me along to another doctor (over him in the clinic) for the cataract surgery as soon as the excess fluid in the back of my eyes was gone. The excess fluid has been gone since last March, but I was informed that my cataracts were not bad enough to warrant surgery at this time, which has left me not being able to read anything that is not at least in a 20-point emboldened font. There is not a doubt in my mind that the real reason why I could not have the cataract surgery is because I am on Medicaid.
The huge irony of it all is that I could get off of Medicaid and become a contributing member of society again if things go well with the new site directory. So, I am looking forward to the launching of the new directory in a couple of weeks as being an independence day for me and Arlynda in that regard, as well.
Herein lies one of the things I hope will make the new directory stand out. For if you do a regular search (Google or some other) on Independence Day while looking for some information on the new movie by the name or maybe the American holiday, this article will show up—even though it has nothing to do with either. The reason why is because computer algorithms are set to find the name, which may have nothing to do with the content while every site on the new directory is actually checked to see what they are all about and placed in appropriate categories. Of course, my poor eyesight sure factors in, and changes will be made when they are needed.
Our Heavenly Father has sure given me some hard lessons to learn. For I was raised to believe that He only helped those who helped themselves and that anyone down in the gutter (so to speak) had placed themselves there and was getting what they deserved. I now know that He helps me the most when I am helpless to help myself (even before I beg for it) and that one can find themselves severely down and out despite how hard they tried to do things right.
Oh yeah, I have done plenty wrong, but it sure seemed right at the time. I hope the new directory is not another one.
