5-6 Weeks Post-ASA Eye Surgery

July 8, 2008 at 12:43 pm 2 comments

Well, so my Dr. Visit was today.  They did some test where I look at a barn in the distance and the machine, which, I assume, calculates my general eyesight.  Then, they manually check that.  I missed a letter on each eye with my right eye at 20-30 and my left at 20-40.

My near-sightedness is pretty much corrected now.

Now, I’m left with some mild near-sightedness.  Actually, that is still better than before, and I have several months of healing to see if it will resolve or not.

It was GREAT when the local eye Dr. corrected for it and I said, “Ahhh, yeah, that would be awesome.”

Worst case scenario is, I use reading glasses to help with clarity.  ICK.  I’m not ready for that.  I hope I don’t have to go there.  I’d probably get surgery done again since it’s included for two years.

A highlight of the visit was when the lady asked if I had eye insurance.

I hesitated and replied, “It’s already paid for.”  She quinted her eyes and seemed surprised.

An older lady who’d been around longer said, “Oh yes, it’s been paid for.  She had eye surgery.  Her follow-ups were included.”  She showed her how to handle the billing.

As I reflected on that interaction after having been ushered to an exam room, I smiled.  Isn’t that the same feeling we will have one day in heaven?

If someone says, “Who will pay for these sins?”

I will be able to say, “It’s already been paid for…it was covered at the cross.  All my follow-ups were covered, too.”

“Oh, yes!  I see it here.  I’ll make a note.”

The same wave of relief will wash over me.

Nothing owed.

    Great to read about the progress you are making, Maggie!

    Even better to read that your heart is so full of Jesus that it’s bubbling over!

    I had to get reading glasses a couple years ago. Changed my life. And they’re quite stylish! I picked out a pretty trendy pair. Well, the eye doctor did since she’s young and hip. I made her pick them. Just think of them as an accessory. 🙂

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)

"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
