View Full Version : Quick update on surgery.

November 20th, 2014, 10:30 PM
I don 'to thunk I realized that what I had was considered major eye surgery.... I got the message today, when they took the bandage iff, and I saw absolutely nothing. I thought I couldn't 'open my eye, so when the tech assured me it was open, I was shocked....

There is still blood there, and the eye pressure is super low, because there are ten little holes in my eye...yikes!

It will take three to four weeks for the eye to heal. They expect my vision to,be less than it was, but close... It's possible I won't be able to drive.... Everybody cross your fingers! I was just on the edge before...

I have a clear plastic patch to wear.... I really want to rub my eye... It itches! I'm pretty much doing nothing....

Thanks for your prayers and good thoughts....
