Friday…Typing with Eyes closed
Friday AM…waking felt good.
Putting four drops in four times a day…not so good. OUCH! Drops on a chemically burned eye rather hurts. But, then I have times where it doesn’t hurt so bad and I can stir around pretty well.
Surgery: so, I had some “moles” on my cornea that were a 2 out of 4 ranking that bothered him. He didn’t want to destroy my corneal flap with those having the potential to grow. So, he kept my cornea intact and melted the moles off, I suppose? Still unsure if that took care of that issue. They used an alcohol swab and pressed it on my eyes. .
So, they chemically burned off the surface of my epithelial layer after giving me numbing eye drops, then reshaped my eye and put a clear protective contact on my eye as a bandage… they said the feeling of your eyelid raking across an eye that felt like sand wasn’t very pleasant, nor was your eye adhering to your eyelid…thus, the clear contact. What keeps it from adhering, I’m still unsure, but I guess it just doesn’t. Isn’t this gross?
Right nwo (edit: now) I feel well, have the brightness turned all the way down on the puter, as well as a straw hat down over my head AND darkening glasses. The Hub doesn’t want me on the puter until my eyes healed, but I wanted a sort of journal, and to update you guys a bit.
Yesterday was quite a day…we’re still getting over the craziness of that.
I have a Dr. apmt. today locally for follow up…fam is helping me with that. Mom brought food and an ice cream cake last night and folded some laundry for me. I sure appreciated the sweetness. I’m pretty caught up on housework, and can stir around and do dishes and things.
Hopefully the bandages will be taken off in a week or so and the haze and light sensitivity will have eased as the injuries heal…he said it can take years to fully heal , but hopefully in a week, i can get rid of the protective contact.
I sure can’t wait to see how well I see! I already see better than I ever have without glasses, but I can’t read signs and most things seem muted/scattered a but,
I love you guys!
