First off this morning I must say Happy Birthday to my girl Charli Ava! 7 years old! My fellow lover of all things Pink! As well as tiaras and tutus. And cupcakes.
I did a birthday collage for her over on my other blog Book,Books and More Books
Yesterday was my appointment with my corneal surgeon. Since we are down to every two months now, I was a bit nervous. My appointment was at 3 p.m. and I left around 6 or so. First, they got some new camera equipment which meant better pictures of the inside of my eyeball, so we did a lot of those. A closer look at Dru ( yes, I named the graft) showed that he was hanging onto that eyeball for dear life. So well that Dr. Davis decided we should remove a stitch or two they were so tight.
Me: Are you sure we should do that? I mean what if it slides off onto the floor?
Him: Well, that has never happened to me before. Ever.
Me: Okay. Just don’t tell me what you are doing, okay?
Him: Okay, but I have to talk out loud so my Fellow can learn and see the procedure.
Me: Dr. Hack? ( Who is not a hack, and has a wicked sense of humor!)
Him: Numbs me up and attached the speculum. Explains everything while I go la la la la la in my head. And he talks about Gideon from Criminal Minds and that he had 2 of these surgeries, did I know that?
Me: No I did not. Did you know that Dr. Hack? ( No, he doesn’t even know what Criminal Minds is because he is just a baby!)
And just like that I had 14 stitches instead of 16. Then we went and took more pictures with the machine that looks like something Dr. Who would use. And Voila! I could see much better. Since my surgery on February 23rd, I am 1/3 of the way through the healing process which is apparently pretty amazing.
So in another two months we may be taking out another one or two. I don’t care for being back on the antibiotic drops and the steroid drops, but I’ll do what ever I need to do to avoid rejection! I am grateful today. And happy. I had one anxious moment when they numbed me up but I got through it. Another win for me and a loss for anxiety!
