Eye Surgery Update

Posted Jul 20 2014 12:42pm

Hello! I am back! Cornea surgery went well. This was me after surgery:

Eye surgery

My eye is swollen and bloodshot (and I am not taking a picture of it). I have to wear the shield at night for a week, but nothing during the day. I go back next week for a followup and to get the stitches in my eye removed (which sounds quite painful).

I have pretty much been taking it easy at home since surgery. This evening I will get out and about and make sure I am okay to drive. I have not done any exercise and probably have the least amount of steps ever on my fitness tracker.

I will say my patience level was at an all time low Thursday and Friday. I have a great doctor, but time means nothing to them. We were at the surgery center almost an hour after surgery was completed. What were we waiting on? The doctor to sign my prescription for pain meds (I got 4 pills). Then Friday at my checkup it was a full hour before we got to see anyone. I have many strengths, but patience is not one of them. Very thankful for smart phones and technology these days.

And check this out – we discovered my crepe myrtle finally has a bloom! So excited.

Off to catch up on emails and such. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Have a healthy day!
