The Cataract is Gone

At 5:15 this morning we were up and preparing to be at the surgical center for my eye surgery. I couldn't have coffee or anything else for that matter, so my morning started off on the wrong foot. I didn't get cranky about it, but I need my coffee when I wake up.

The prep took far longer than the surgery and in no time I was back in recovery. I was awake during the procedure but felt nothing.

 I wasn't sure how I was going to like being awake, but it was fine. When it's time to do the other eye I know what to expect. Talk about easy. Very. Tomorrow I get the very attractive eye patch off and I'll let you know what I think. I understand I'll be able to see very well. I'm so ready for that.

Thanks to all who sent good wishes. It was/is very much appreciated.

  2. I'll be thinking of you when I have my afternoon coffee...the one that keeps me from going comatose at work. Hey, that's great that you got the procedure done and found it quick and painless...now go enjoy a coffee yourself, you deserve it!

  3. There is nothing worse than that whole "no eating or drinking after midnight" stuff that means no morning coffee! I bet the first thing you did after surgery was go find a big cup, right?

    Glad to hear that everything went well and that it was an easy procedure. Can't wait to read tomorrow's pronouncement on your new and improved vision!
