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!
