Since my first surgery on June 30, frozen peas have been an almost constant companion. They have been plastered to one or both eyes throughout the days and nights to help decrease swelling and increase healing.
I now bid them adieu, and move on to warm compresses on both eyes!
My surgeon continues to be mostly pleased with the outcome of both surgeries.
I am currently seeing a dark blob in my left eye. Fingers crossed that it is simply caused by swelling, and will disappear as that eye continues to heal.
As a precaution, restrictions on activities have been extended for a little longer.
Double vision is still present, and most likely will continue for anywhere from three to six weeks. At that time, we will determine whether additional treatment or surgery is necessary.
Mostly, I am so very thankful to have the surgeries behind me and so very hopeful for a full recovery within the coming weeks.
No doubt, many of your prayers and well wishes have brought me safely to this point.
I am forever grateful.
It is my joy in life to find
At every turning of the road
The strong arm of a comrade kind
To help me onward with my load.
And since I have no gold to give,
And love alone must make amends,
My only prayer is, while I live,
God make me worthy of my friends.
