I'm afraid that this is going to be a picture-less post this time. Sorry about that but I know a few of my Belles were going to check here to see how my eye surgery went yesterday.
I had right cataract surgery done at the Same Day Surgery Center of one of the local hospitals. DJ and I used the same doctor but he went to the other hospital. We were not impressed but that facility is going through a much needed expansion of their SDS set up so hopefully, one day it will improve. I reported at 0830 and left about 11. DJ and I stopped to get something to eat before we went home---the man is NO cook.
It seemed as though I was awake for the procedure though I had been given some IV sedative meds, so who knows. Maybe they woke me up at some point or the twilight deal made it seem like I was awake;. Anyway, nothing objectionable about it---I was a nurse for years so some of that professional curiosity remains.
After calling my parents who were waiting to see how things went, I went to bed and took a long 4 hour nap. Me--who rarely takes a nap because I have a hard enough time sleeping at night. Between not being able to turn to the operative side and Skyler being a bed hog we both had some wakeful times, LOL. What else is new???
The doctor asks his postop patients to return to the office for a check of the operative eye the morning after surgery. Vision 20-20 now where it was 20-40 preop but the right eye was my better eye to start with. Closeup is now fuzzy and distance vision is great! Readers will be required but I am not sure about the strength I will need. Of course, I have several pairs of those already if they will do the job.
I don't know about sewing, embroidery or quilting for the time being. It is a little disconcerting to have one eye be so good and the other, such a disparity. Not today anyway. I have another hat about to the shaping point so I will no doubt just keep knitting for now. One more and I'll probably be ready to mail a box off to my friend Cindy.
It is still pouring down rain. We have about 3.5 inches in our rain gauge over a two plus day period. Tomorrow there may be snow. Oh, boy! I just want to stay home and hibernate, LOL.
