I Can See Clearly Now

Just a quick update to say thanks for all the thoughts, comments and prayers for my eye surgery.  It went off without a hitch.  Nine minutes under the knife, a total of just sixteen total minutes it the operating room.

Unlike the last time where the surgery lasted over an hour and left me with a bunch of stiches in the eye and follow up surgeries for a detached retina, this experience was almost a pleasure.

A quick follow up check with the eye surgeon today shows all is well, I already have 20-25 vision in the eye and am told it will improve even more.  I no longer have to wear glasses for distance, just for reading, and I’m okay with that.

Official orders from the eye doc are no heavy lifting, no bending down and to take it easy.  Sounds like I need to be a couch potato for the next couple of days, something I think I can handle.

One more follow up next week and we should be free to take a short break from our COE volunteering for about 10 days bopping around Florida.

Life is good!

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
