Post surgical update

Today was my first visit to the Doctor since my surgery. She is pleased with the progress and removed some of the stitches. I will see the ophthalmologist on Friday to do the evaluation on my eyeball. It is healthy but it has been very stressed by all of this. There was a short period of time (VERY short) where removing the eyeball was discussed. I refused the offer – it is after all part of a set.

      I kept the eyeball, Venice. I am rather attached to it – have had it for a few years now.

      I think the surgeon who said it to me was looking for a shock effect and didn’t realize he would be dealing with me. I won’t simply sit back and agree – you better have a DAMN good reason for doing any of it

    But, your eyeball? Will your vision be affected? Will you end up with limited vision in that eye?

      The eye is in excellent condition, vision is the same as it has been for 20 years. the eyelid needs to heal more and tighten up some to make everything more comfy but it is all good, no worries

    Kim; after all you wouldn’t want to be lobsided would you. The power of your humour will beat the cancer, foreget the knife action. I don’t blame you one bit. Once it’s gone, well it means a whole lot more fiddling to fit the new eyeball and I suppose much more in the way of costs too. I can’t see your govt. covering that kind of thing.

    Good girl, you really swung at bat and took the operaiton and hit the ball out of the park. I’m proud of you friend.

      Thank you so very much, Weezie. Yor friendship and support mean a lot to me!

      I believe we have to work with what we are given and humor is what I have. Besides – I wasn’t about to let some anonymous Dr come in and tell me!!
