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