What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

Anna's Eye Surgery

Good grief, I’ve really slacked off with this blog. I’ve got to be more persistent. I do have a bit of an excuse. I’ve been taking care of my wife for the last couple of weeks. Not that I’ve had to do a lot. But she had eye surgery a couple of weeks ago. She said that her vision was obscured in her right eye. Within two days she had an appointment with our optometrist. He immediately called in a retinal specialist. The specialist immediately sent us to one of the local hospitals to visit Vitreoretinal Associates. Say that fast five times. After examinations and tests she was told that she could have eye surgery that evening or wait until the morning when the surgeon was rested. Even then the surgery was backed up and she wasn’t operated on until 4:30 in the afternoon. Detached retina, scar tissue removal, removal of cataract and implantation of a new lens. So for a couple of weeks I was doing the chores around the house. And putting the eye drops in her eyes. Her post op visit was very positive. The doctor said she was healing beautifully for all that they had done to her eye. Only one more visit in June. So without that excuse I’d better get back to blogging more regularly.

Glad to hear the surgery was successful. You'd better watch your step now that she can see you again.

I'm sure she'll recover fast because a co-worker had the same operation a few weeks ago and he's doing fine. Does she have to wear a patch and not lift anything over 5 pounds?
