This is Portland Head Lighthouse, Maine
Today was my cataract surgery, and I whipped myself into a frenzy... what with the vandalizism of dad's flag and this event have not been getting much sleep. Just letting everything bother me!!
Was supposed to be at 8:30am and they set it back to 9:15a, , then they were running behind, as had a retina problem with the 1st surgery :( SO, did not get in until 11am and by that time the little anxiety pill they gave me had worn out, and I remembered the last time,,, and did not want to do that again.. but needed to, so I started hyperventilating, getting anxious. SO I got a interveinous drug :) and that just smoothed me right out... shot STILL hurt.. then into the surgery room and STILL hurt so got even more nummy in the eye (yes, that is what they called it!!) So, then was finally able to relax. but here it is almost 4p and am still numb!!! AND those drops I need to use, burn... see I am a wuse of the 1st order!!!! Tomorrow is a check up with the surgeon, then just check ups with the opthamologist and new glasses in 4-6 weeks. wahoooo.... maybe I will be able to see most things clearly again :) Which will make me most happy. Have been slowing on the reading as I can't read for long lengths of time, without getting really tired eyes.... Hopefully this will solve that problem. Also can't focus the camera well as can't see in the view finder! I am sure all of this will be solved in time.
Take Care All, Take care of yourselves.....
