Day 4 Post Op: Two steps forward…one step back

June 2, 2008 at 12:27 pm 4 comments

Back from the eye Dr. today for my little visit. 

Long story short, my contact got too dry last night and I pulled off a thin layer of the epitheliel layer this morning trying to hydrate it and get it to budge.  It hurt like hockeysticks.  I was kicking the chair and cryi8ng.  He had to take that one out and put it in for me.  He could not yet do the measurements he wanted to do due to the pain of the epetheliel tear.  Yee-haw1

But, good news is, my right eye stilk would have needed another day of bandage anyway, it was still feeling slightly gritty  So, I scheduled the next appointment for Wednesday, day 6.  He said they should both be ready by then.

Also, the good news is, my vision is continuing to gradually improved as they said it should.  It’s still blurry, I have to get about a foot from the computer to read it and turn the brightness way down…but, it was like 20/90 on Friday, and it’s 20/50 in both eyes today. 

We’re moving in the right direction…just a long road.

Fortunately, My Man recommended that I take some pain medicine with me, just in case.  I didn’t think “in case” was going to happen, but indeed, it did.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
