View Full Version : Can't sew - can't read

November 28th, 2011, 12:03 AM
Hello all my quilting friends. Just touching base here. I had cataract surgery last week and am still very much out of focus. However, I have been calling in in small visits and checking what you are all up to.

Jan, I saw your post about Emily and would like to add my thoughts and prayers for her.

Am also thinking of my friend Lisa down south in Victoria, NSW, who was in great pain and hoping you are able to get some relief Lisa. And all others who have been having a down time and need hug, I am sending a big one.

AND last, but not least, a great big Aussie HELLO to all those new members who have found their way to this wonderful Forum. :icon_wave::icon_wave::icon_wave:

Mary, it is great to see a post from you. Wishing you a speedy recovery - I can't imagine how tedious it would be, not being able to sew or read.

I hope your eyes heal soon. Can't sew, can't read ... about all that leaves is eating.

Mary, sure hope your vision clears soon - what does your doctor say? When I had mine I walked out seeing better than I did before I went in . . . praying you have great success.

My Mom and Dad both have had cataract surgery in the past 4 months or so. I understand what you're going through. I'm praying you'll have a speedy recovery!!

Hi Mary....I had cataracts removed from both eyes and the change is phenomenal. It's like getting a new set of eyes...colors are brighter and everything is in focus. Be patient, it takes a little bit to heal, but it's so worth it!!!! Hugs, Barb

Mary, all the best as you recover from your surgery! Both of my parents had the surgery and enjoyed their improved vision tremendously. Mom was so excited to be able to read her Bible again :)

Thank you all so much for your kind comments and good wishes. The difference is amazing. Have been for a final check with the eye surgeon and everything is set up to have the other one done towards the end of January.
