Back from eye operation/ sort of
- Angie and all,
Information piecemeal, or good news bad news.
Well I am finally back home. I had expected to be
back a week ago Saturday. I had not expected this
bit of eye surgery to become some sort of saga. It
was to be simple surgery and come home three days
afterward, so I scheduled for a lost week.
Now the operation was a bit more than I had been
told about and done in a operating room. I was
awake and could hear if not always understand the
doctors. fortunately I could not see nor feel them
putting in the probes. That was a relief as I blink for
eye drops. Meanwhile they cut out some tissue and
then put a bubble of gas in to push the retina back
where it belongs and stitiched up the eye.
It was after the operation and with my eye patch I
learned a new piece of information. Recovery was
going to require that I lay on my belly fifty minutes
out of each hour. So hence a stay in the hospital
doing just that up till Monday morning but then you
can't check out on a holiday so out this morning.
Pretty boring stay, could not watch TV or read and
when I had to walk anywhere had to keep my face
faced down to the floor. I know a lot more about
the VA hospitals floor than I ever wanted to know.
Hard to even carry on a conversation when you
can't look at the person's face.
I will have to go back in early February for a check
up and I have both medication to put on my eye
which will keep my eye blurry and then there is this
bubble of gas that the eye will have to absorb before
I see what results in sight we got out of all this. So I
may be a bit slower posting for awhile until I use of
all the medication on the eyeball and get this gas
bubble inside of my eye absorbed and gone.
Geezers are stuborn old coots for a reason. It is the
only way they get anything done at all. Now I have
about a thousand e-mails to sort through. Thanks
goodness for the delete button.
