I had my cataract surgery yesterday and it seems to have gone pretty well but the final word will come later this morning after I see Dr. Jamie. It seemed a lot more difficult than my previous surgery and it gave me pause to consider the differences from that time and the present. First and foremost was my mindset. At the time of my first surgery, The Man and I had just begun our relationship and he was at my side and wonderfully supportive the whole time. This time my upstairs neighbor took me and sat in the waiting room -- which was good because she raises my blood pressure with monotonous regularity. I probably should have gotten someone else but my efforts weren't worth the bother. I'm always the first to ask what I can do to help my friends but it seems that isn't forthcoming when the situation is reversed. And I went home to an empty house and ate a lot.
I also slept a lot and noticed a lot of discomfort that's finally subsiding so I'll be okay to drive myself to Dr. Jamie's office later today -- and y'all didn't see me type those words. Bryce came over after school to see what I needed and made sure my trash was put out at the curb and stayed a while to talk. He is my best buddy these days. Michelle (his mom) brought little Ana Michelle over so I could see her crawl (at 7 months!)! I count my blessings where I find them. Jeff called and wanted to bring supper. I said "No thanks".
I'm heading to bed when I finish this as I'm exhausted. I've always wondered why surgery always affects me this way but it does.
A tip of my Thinking Cap to Dick Klade aka Gabby Geezer for his flattering comment the other day!
Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!!
