Just checking in...






Thanks for all the positive thoughts and prayers... I had the first cataract surgery at noon today... it's almost 7pm now and I can tell that I can see better in my eye wearing no glasses...however it is still real blurry and my eye is still super dilated. I go back tomorrow for a follow up appointment. .

The surgery was painless and all I remember is seeing splotches of pretty colors and being told they were done. The worse part was the 90 minutes I had to lay there waiting for the numbing and dilating  meds to work. They had a blood pressure cuff on one arm and  a pulse oximeter on my other hand so I couldn't even knit!!! I am so ADHD that my hands are almost always occupied doing something... I DON'T just sit and do nothing anytime...my son brought me home and stayed a while so I would rest... but as soon as he left I did get out the knitting. It is just socks so it is easy and it makes me feel better. I do have my feet up along with a nice cup of tea!

Now the work is to keep track of the meds... 3 different drops which I need to take 4 times a day ... I made a chart to keep track as I will never remember otherwise.

Thanks again for all the good wishes!

  1. Glad it went well. Both my parents have had the surgery. Droosm drops, and yet more drops for sure as I was the one to aolly them! Rest as even eye surgery is hard physically and emotionally.

  2. Glad everything went well!! DH went through it in October. I was in charge of the drops for a couple of weeks. He had a secondary condition that required drops till the end of January. Thankfully he learned to do them himself!

  3. So glad to hear you are doing well. The chart is a great idea. I had to make one after my back surgery last year. You can just cross off what you have done. I kept forgetting things , must have been the pain pills not my memory!!(Ha)Take good care of yourself. Knitting sounds good. Those little crosses might need to wait till your eyes are more normal.

  7. Glad you came out on the other side okay. I know just what you mean about never sitting idle. I can't either. Knitting does bring about a sense of peace. Here's to continued speedy progress. Hugs!

  9. Oh you'll be amazed at the improvement in your vision and seeing colors as they really are--I had mine both done last Nov-Dec and this past monday my hubby had his 2nd one done. We used charts, too--now, really who can keep track without one, right? LOL good luck and you, too, will soon be an eagle-eyed wonder...hugs,Julierose
