(Avon Park, FL) Hi 69 Lo 57 -- On Tuesday Dee had cataract surgery on her left eye. Everything went well, except she coughed during the surgery. Yep, you read that right... she coughed while a doctor was about to cut her eyeball with a sharp scalpel! Fortunately no harm was done. While I waited for her in the waiting room I watched as patient after patient was called to the cataract conveyor belt. The doctor performed 36 surgeries that one day!
She's now two days into her recovery and stumbling around like a drunk sailor. :) Her repaired eye isn't real clear yet, and her right eye is so bad that she can barely see of it. (Kind of like blind in one eye and can't see out of the other.) And it doesn't help that the left lens was removed from her glasses, which throws off her equilibrium. She's doing fine except for being a little impatient. She wants to see, and she wants to see now! :) She has commented about how bright and colorful everything is in her left eye, kind of like going from black and white to technicolor. The other eye will be done next Tuesday. She wants me to thank everyone who has offered kind words of encouragement.
That's about all to report for now. See you in a few days.
