Eyem back part 3





I can always find something to fret about.... while waiting for my Cataract Surgery, my fretter kicked in  when The office called to tell me I was schedules for 6:25 am for surgery. she said I could drink water and a cup of black coffee before 4:30, since we wake up at 4 YAH!  then it occurred to me... if I drink a glass of water and a cup of coffee will I wet myself while under anesthesia?

OF COURSE you know  I asked  Google Girl in my tablet .

ME: Do we pee when we are under anesthesia?
Google girl said out loud. YOU DO NOT WET YOURSELF OR SOIL YOURSELF, you are unconscious and incapable of doing that under anesthetic so you won't need a nappy

Happy Dance... I can drink the coffee and not fret.

But then Something Happened that I never thought to fret about. We left home at 11 am for my 24 hour post surgical check, it was 2 miles to the office. we had 20 minutes to drive 2 miles.

We got 1/2 mile from the office....and OH NO! Police cars and Police People and Flashing Lights and fire trucks blocking ALL 4 streets leading to the office.. OH NO!

We had to drive 7 miles around it and come up from the back, it took 25 minutes because so were all the other 87 million drivers doing the same thing. We were only 5 minutes late.

When we got home, I checked the news..
.Our Cable Guys drilled into the
GAS LINES, UNDER the intersection BY the Hospital...
as you can tell we are safe because I am typing this.
Can you imagine the fretting I would be doing if I had know what the blockade was for?
The office new it was blocked but not why.. Lucky Me

LUCKY ME! I HAD ON MY GORGEOUS BIG SUNGLASSES ..see above
UNLUCKY ME! I WAS RIDING WITH MY HUBBY DRIVING WHICH I NEVER EVER NEVER DO.... HE DID NOT DO WELL WITH DIRECTIONS SINCE HE HAD NO IDEA HOW TO GO AROUND IT...and does not listen well at all

Eyem Back Part 2



I had no idea at all that I had those bags and wrinkles. not only could I not see with my glasses off, but the glasses cover the wrinkles up... See in the one with glasses they don't show. That is good news, because
I will have 20/20 vision for distance but still need glasses for medium like computer and reading.
Yet another thing coming soon in a post near you.


Because above is what I see with my new sight after one eye only. now I stand in front of the cabinets and close left and it goes dark, close right and bright white. everything is so Bright, reds and greens and yellows.

I found a letter from another lady who had surgery from Doctor McCabe and it says it all about the feelings after cataracts are removed...

Excerpt from her letter...  
When the dilation and fog of surgery cleared after a few days, I gazed at my reflection and my heart sank. I had had the lens corrected for astigmatism and distance and I was seeing a whole new me. In fact, I was seeing a whole new world. When I closed the left eye (cataract and astigmatism still in place), objects were no longer fuzzy; everything had well-defined edges and colors were vibrant. My vision was clear and I could see far into the distance. This also meant I could see every wrinkle. When had those tiny lines on my cheeks appeared? And what about my forehead? The circles under my eyes made me look tired and – there it is – old! I would have to start wearing bangs that came down over my eyes. CLICK HERE to read the rest.

The gist of it is... with the new lens in my eye, I can see pine needles, and the gray hairs on Jakes face and the wrinkles in my face and the GRAY hair on my head that I thought was Brown and Gray

Details I have not seen in years and did not know it.
My first thought was OH NO, did I over edit photos the past few months because it looked dull?


I woke up singing this old song.. really old songI saw the light, I saw the light, no more darkness no more light, now I'm so happy no sorrow in sight. Praise the Lord, I saw the light.

Eyem Back.



I consider my left eye cataract surgery a miracle. by night fall I could watch TV without my glasses.
And it doesn't matter at all that I will be living with 4 bottles of drops for a whole month, 4 times  day. I have my trusty timer and I can SEE to use it..  In my prior post I was concerned about how I would look with no makeup or hair spray.,.. Now you know. The thing is looking like the two bad pics above I was The Prettiest Woman In the Waiting Room. I kid you NOT... I looked at everyone there, about 10 women and thought Oh Wow and I was worried about how I look....


I have been feeling depressed before my eye surgery, but they sent me to the low vision centre..

Did you make  spectacles of yourself while I was gone?  Sorry if my puns keep getting cornea...

SEE? nothing changed while eye was gone.
