ME waiting for 1 hour 10 minutes that felt like 10 hours.
I have taken Bob to 5 offices since the virus thing started. Yowsa!
I had a beautiful view, and it was nice they let me wait in the lobby, BUT, it was really hot. 97 outside and the ceilings was about 12 feet tall, the back where Bob was was icy cold.
You may notice I had on a different mask from yesterday, NOT that it matters but i have 23 masks, I only bought a pack of 7, the rest were gifts. Sorry my brain is rattled and I don't know what i Meant to say.
OK, brain has rebooted, back to the update
Above top left is the eye at 5 pm when we got home from the 2nd surgery. the sad face is at wakeup today, 4 AM and a close up of the incision in the GOOD eye. she took what she needed from the exact same spot as the other eye, he was awake through all this. Just numbing shots in the corner of his eyes.
You can see it is puffy.
The Big Problem Now!!!
She gave us a LIST of DO NOT DO THESE THINGS and a short list of DO these things.
First she said make 3 small baggies of frozen peas, put the tiny ice packs on the good eye, for 48 hours. Keep one on for 20 minutes wait 20 and repeat. HE DID IT 3 times when I used MY LOUD voice!
Do not lie flat for 72 hours
Do not bend over, do not lift anything heavy, do not do ANYTHING that makes you sweat!
We LIVE IN FLORDIA~ Sweat Country
Stay inside AC! if you sweat it wets the bandage. do not get the bandage even damp until Tuesday when we remove it.
DO sleep with head propped up for 72 hours! use a recliner!
Do NOT lay flat!
We have no recliner! I made a bed prop and a sofa prop
He said I can't sleep like that. ARRRHH
PAUSING HERE TO ANSWER PHONE
While creating this, phone rang at 9 am, 2nd day.
Doctor Chapman calling, she asked about how the good eye looks? ask a lot of questions, gave me new instructions and her cell phone and said call me any time if he has a problem.
I said I forgot to tell you he started antibiotics 2 days ago. His annual blood labs said he has UTI and primary called it in.
She said that if great, I was thinking of putting him on them. Perfect she said.
Stop Tylenol, use the pea ice bags, take Benadryl 1 every 5 hours, to help with swelling, itching and to help him get through the aggravation of the big bandage. He was shocked to hear me talking to her.
This may sound easy peasy, but Bob has a routine for each day and he can do NONE of it until next Tuesday.
