D-Day: Eye-Dr. Day (Six days after ASA surgery)

June 4, 2008 at 12:43 pm 1 comment

Six days after Advanced Surface Ablation:  MY BANDAGE CONTACTS ARE OFF!  YAY! (I know that is spelled YEAH!   But that can be confused to be read as a dull yah, sort of thing…  I mean YAY!!!!!)

Hydration is no longer an issue, my eyes are less sensitive to light, and my right eye is 98% healed except for one spot on the center.  I’m 20/40 in that eye and look forward to the next two steps…if trends continue, in four days.  I’m gaining a step of vision every two days. That puts me to Sunday for 20/20 in that eye.  I’m optimistic!

My other eye is a bit behind…I’m planning for 20/20 by…let’s see:  by next Tuesday.  On Tuesday, I’ll be telling all of you how beautiful you are.  That’s TUESDAY.  I see the eye Dr. again to confirm this miracle on Wednesday.

My left eye is lagging  a bit due to the contact sticking (due to dehydration and faulty rear seat Chrysler Rear Cup Holders, not that I’m blaming anyone.  :D).

So, today, instead of 20 eye drops, I do FOUR!

Today the Dr. has to put in those glow-drops to see the surface of my eyes–those fog me up for a day.  UGH.

But, overall, happy, hopeful, day!

I told him I see GREAT for a split second when I put “tears” in my eyes…he said, “When the epetheliel layer heals, that’s a good indication of what you’ll see…that’s the flat surface we want.”

WOW.  I have hope.

Grand-dad took me to Kroger…iSenior Day…a bonus… for him!

We had to pay to have our hay cut and bailed this year…the hub gave it up to take care of me.  I’m so thankful for his help this week with so many things.

Thanks for your prayers, and for enduring these posts!

At times, it no longer hurts to look at the computer screen–limiting to very easy eye work and just a minute or so at a time before I start to blur over again.

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
