I Can See Clearly Now…

…the floaters are gone.

Well not as clearly as I will be seeing once my eye isn’t dialated anymore. Things are slightly blurry but no black feathery objects are floating across my eye.

My particular issue was Asteroid Hyalosis: Asteroid hyalosis (AH) is a degenerative eye condition marked by a buildup of calcium and lipids, or fats, in the fluid between your eye’s retina and lens, called the vitreous humor.

The surgery went well and my follow-up was good. I go back next Monday to get another follow-up. This week I’m suppose to rest and not do anything strenuous. I shouldn’t bend over, pick up heavy objects and do anything that will jostle me like riding my lawnmower. I need to wear my eye patch at night so I don’t do anything to my eye in my sleep. Dr. G. told Dear to wash the dishes this week. Dear will also be on eye drop duty.

When my grands come to visit tomorrow I’ve been forewarned that Addy will be saying, “but why”, a lot. I’ll let her climb into my lap instead of lifting her.

My eyes will be in rest mode for the rest of the week, so I won’t be coming around to read blogs.

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart for anyone who prayed for me. I was pretty calm for the whole time even before they gave me some happy sedation. I was conscious through out the whole procedure and declared afterward that it was way better then having dental work done. Our stay in a nearby hotel with valet parking and full service within the hotel worked out well for meals and being close to the eye clinic for my followup this morning.

We are back at home now and heating up to 99 for today and tomorrow before we have a little cooling off. We have smoke filled skies because of the brush fire that has grown to over 10,500 acres on the Colville Reservation that is west and south of us. The smoke from this fire is impacting air quality over a large area of eastern Washington.

Staying inside and relaxing sounds like very good medicine.
