All went well although I had problems with my blood pressure being way too high, but they took it down with drugs. We went to the library to wait till my follow up appointment at 2:30. I pretty much slept in one of their comfy chairs.
Follow-up went well but I did have a little swelling. They wanted to give me prescription drops but I have mail order drug service and I couldn’t get them fast enough. Local pharmacy was $180 a bottle, with generic at $90….still too high, so thankfully they found some sample bottles to give me. My vision was there but it looked like I was looking through waxed paper.
At night I have to elevate my head above my heart and wear a metal patch over my eye to keep me from touching or scratching my eye….not a pretty sight, believe me!
This morning my vision is better…a little foggy still. But the doctor said by this afternoon or tomorrow I should be seeing pretty good out of that eye….we’ll see…ha-ha…of course we hope we’ll see!
I go back in two weeks and at that time they will schedule the surgery on the other eye. Need to make it in August as Jim will be going on the Chapman Annual 4-Wheel Trip to Ouray the end of July.
So that is my update for today. It’s pretty funny having only one lens in my glasses, but it will keep people confused and guessing why….I’ll just smile.
Remember, you are loved.
