Sharing Some Chai and a Dead Deer

Yes, you did read that correctly. It is still cold out but at 30 degrees I guess we can’t complain. Well we can, but we won’t. Especially since I have a lovely pot of Chai sitting next to me! Nothing like all of those warming spices to get those bones warm!

Today was the Corneal Surgeon appointment. It was really early but I think I covered my jammies nicely! My lovely doctor made it back from Korea safely. He had some nice tales to tell. As he was explaining what comes next, OU Boy quickly got up and hustled to the waiting room. He has a thing about people poking things in my eye.

I had to wear these weird steam punk looking glasses and then I had to sit in a chair, bend down and look at the floor. Dr. D. sat on the floor between my legs and popped a fluid filled lens on my sclera. And then I was rattling off those eye chart letters! Keeping fingers crossed I will have one more surgery to fix some flap the lens sits on and then I can get this Scleral Lens. Not to be confused with a Sclera Lens, which makes the zombies look dead. No sutures came out but he may just leave them in forever.

But it gets better, he always has a Resident or a Fellow with him and he explained my case and then said, “Removing the cataract that developed because of the massive steroids was really easy because she is so young.” Yep, right then and there I fell in love with him all over again.  So that is the good news. The bad news is this lens costs around $4,000.00 but it’s for life. Insurance covers some but not the bulk of it. I’m trying to decide if I want this bad enough to forgo my entire Spring wardrobe. I’m still thinking.

OU Boy just sent me this on the way back…only in Oklahoma…

Yes, that is a gutted deer on the roof of an SUV. I have no words.   Stay warm and Be Nice. Try a cuppa Chai!

    It snowed here … Twice! What the heck? About an inch and no joke the state has shut down. People laugh at that but when you’ve only seen snow in person a handful of times your entire life, there’s no way to learn how to drive in it. So, everything shuts down. Now, heaven forbid it’s a hurricane. Those, unfortunately we know how to handle. So, today, I’m more than happy to stay home and curl up with a hot glass of chai tea. And glad to hear the eye procedure went well.
