Many thanks for all the comments and emails about my cataract surgery. I really appreciate all of good wishes and experiences you all shared with me.
I had to be at the hospital for 7 am on Tuesday morning. It was dark and it was pouring of rain. The best part was I was the first patient and I was home by 9 am.
I felt like a pirate with the eye patch on all day. It was a day to just take things easy, snooze a little, read a little, watch tv a little. I’m just getting back to the computer today.
The next morning the patch came off and the eye drops resumed. There were 2 different drops that were started 3 days before surgery and then another was added the day after the surgery. These drops go in 3 times a day for awhile. Annoying but essential. Everything was great at the first appointment. After my eye cleared I could actually read the info on The Weather Network without my glasses. Before it looked like Inuit printing, and totally unclear.
The photos were all taken on a walk down by the bay on Thanksgiving Day. The colours were spectacular.
My five things to be thankful for this week are
-an amazing eye surgeon
-fantastic staff at the hospital who made you feel totally relaxed
-wonderful loving support of my husband, who did the driving and the cooking and other jobs I needed doing
-my loving family who are always there when I need them
-and all of you, the wonderful people from blogland who sent me good wishes.
I’m sharing with Five on Friday at Amy’s site, Love Made My Home.
