I am home from surgery now. The cataract surgery only takes about 5-10 minutes. I was not at all sleepy, so I was able to leave almost as soon as it was over.
My daughter stopped at McDonald’s to get us coffee and breakfast and we were back at my apartment before 8 a.m.
There were a lot of people there for eye surgery. The surgery waiting room was packed and there were gurneys lined up in the surgery room.
I was given IV Verced for an anesthetic.
A Bewildered Charlie:
Charlie was so happy to see me once 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 for a few days.
I woke up with a broken blood vessel in my right eye for some reason.
Yesterday I got so excited because I saw a hummingbird near the hibiscus plant. I grabbed my camera, but it wasn’t working.
I’d 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.
So I went outside again quite a few times after that once the camera battery was charged, hoping to see the hummingbird. But I wasn’t lucky enough to did see it again.
You can be sure I’ll be watching for the hummingbird in the hope of seeing it again and making getting a photo of it. They move so rapidly it’s terribly hard to take a photo of them, I’ve learned over the years.
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 she will bring lunch over.
