Home From Surgery

I am home now. The surgery only takes about 5-10 minutes. I was not at all sleepy, so I was able to leave as soon as it was over.

My daughter stopped at McDonalds to get us coffee and breakfast so we were home before 8 a.m.

There were a lot of people there for surgery. The surgery waiting room was packed and there were gurneys lined up in the surgery room.

They gave me IV Verced, but it takes a lot to make me feel sleepy.

Charlie was so happy to see me when I got home. He didn’t understand why I was leaving this morning when it was still dark outside.

My eye is very blurry. So I’m typing using my left eye to see. They say that can last a few days.

I woke up with a broken blood vessel in my right eye for some reason.

My Yorkie Charlie

Yesterday I got so excited because I saw a hummingbird near the hibiscus plant. I grabbed my camera, but it wasn’t working.

I had apparently left the camera on and the battery was dead. I was so disappointed, as that was the first hummingbird I’ve seen in the over four years I’ve lived here.

I went outside hoping to see it quite a few times once I got the camera battery charged, but I never saw it again. You can be sure I’ll be watching for the hummingbird in the hope of seeing it again.

I guess I’d better rest my eye, so I’ll let you know how things are after my 8:30 optometrist appointment in the morning.

My daughter has gone to enroll Andrew in school then will bring lunch over.

  1. You will be putting lots of drops in. I had one eye done & need to get the other eye done. I have floaters.

  2. So happy things went well with your eye surgery. Hope your new laptop will be all that you need and want. I hate starting up a new computer. I know Charlie was happy to see you again. Hope this morning eye appointment is stress free for you. Enjoy your day.

  3. Good job, Brenda. Seems the procedure didn’t faze you a bit. More upsetting for poor dear Charlie. He probably stay by your side all day.

  6. Brenda,
    So happy your surgery went well. I know you’re glad to get the first one checked off. I hope it is all smooth sailing. It’s miraculous that science has brought us such technology as this. I wonder what awaits future generations! Take good care of yourself.

  8. I’m glad to hear that went to quickly and so well. The mental part is always harder than the physical part (for me, anyway).

  10. Happy to see a posting and happy the procedure went well. Take it easy, rest your eyes. And how wonderful to have a hummingbird visit! One came to see my purple morning glories – same as yours – the other day and I missed a photo too. They come and go so quickly! The thing that alerted me to its presence was the whirring sound of its wings.
    Hugs to you and to Charlie boy, kudos to your daughter,

    TERRIBLE THUNDERSTORM AT MY.PLACE LAST NIGHT, UP WITH CRICKET TILL ALMOST DAWN, SHE’S TERRIFIED OF THE THUNDER, THERE’S NO COMFORTING HER.
    MY HUMMINGBIRD FEEDERS WERE BUSY THIS MORNING, I COUNTED 32 BETWEEN THE 2 FEEDERS, ABOUT 6 FT. APART. HAVE TO REFILL FEEDERS AT LEAST TWICE A DAY.
    HOPEFULLY YOU WILL BE SEEING MORE ON YOUR PATIO. EVEN WITH ALL YOUR FLOWERS. YOU MIGHT CONSIDER A FEEDER TO HELP ATTRACT THEM.
    SNUGGLES TO CHARLIE !

  19. Great news and glad you are home with Charlie by your side. Time sure flies as I can’t believe that adorable grandson starts school. Oh those bittersweet days of seeing them climb aboard the school bus as little as they looked to me. I am sure your daughter will need her mom to talk to in the next few weeks with this new adjustment in her life. Good you are there well and rested for her too.

  20. Glad the surgery went so quickly. Try wearing a red shirt out on your patio. Hummingbirds are attracted to red. I’ve had them almost land on my shoulder when wearing red.

  21. I am so happy to hear you are back at home and doing well! Be sure to get some rest.

    I have a hummingbird that visits my big green pot with yellow impatiens; it stops and looks in my front window when passing by. I hope you see yours again soon!

  22. Nice to have this surgery out of the way and I know you are pleased that it went quickly and smoothly.
    Your readers will be thinking about you today and wishing you the best with your vision.

  23. So happy that all went well. I tried to post a good wishes comment yesterday, but I made some kind of boo-boo. My experience with any surgery that I have had recently is that it has been easy peasey, and the results have caused miraculous, wonderful changes in my life. Hope it will be so for you. By the way, we have been delighted to see many hummingbirds and monarch butterflies this summer.
