A short update

 First surgery was a success - second one is on Wednesday.  It appears, however, that my hiatus here might be longer than I first anticipated.  If the first eye is any indication I won't be able to see much in the way of reading anything until I get new prescription glasses in about six or seven weeks.  It's going to be a very LONG six or seven weeks because I am not a person who can sit and do nothing and certainly not for any extended period of time.  Poor Resident Chef might just be serving divorce papers by the time all this is over with!


Carry on folks - I'll be back, hopefully sooner than later!

  3. Good news
    That sounds like too long to wait for glasses. Prayers they are done sooner.

    God bless.

  5. Take care of yourself. Can you knit without looking, maybe? Save your sight, and be occupied.

  8. This is,how it's working for DH. While he's impressed at his new distance vision, he's getting impatient for when he can get either get new glasses or a lasik tweek. Hopefully, it won't require both.

  9. You will be so thrilled after it is all over with your new vision abilities--both my husband and I were...

  10. Continued well wishes for your recuperation. I have no good suggestions for you other than maybe books on tape or catching up on binge-watching your favorites. Hope all goes well.

  12. I'm glad the first one went well. I think you will be surprised that you will find things you can do while waiting for your glasses. I remember Mom's annoyance with all that.

  14. Audiobooks? I'd be lost without them. In fact, I "learned how to listen" to audiobooks when I was recovering from a different kind of eye surgery years ago. At first my attention kept drifting off and I had to rewind (the days of tapes, not digital downloads) and listen to parts over again. But before long I was hooked, and still am :)

  17. Enjoy your time off with new interests. I'm sure the Mr. can tickle that sense of smell with some of his cooking and baking?

  18. Good luck with the eyes! My insurance paid for my implants in 2013. I walked out of the hospital without glasses as I don't need them anymore. I will use over the counter reading glasses in low light if I have to read something otherwise, I don't need them at all. I was lucky to have found out about these lenses from my sister in Tennessee.

  19. Oh, MaryAnne... I am sending best wishes and hope you have the success you hoped for with the cataract surgery. You can't rush the glasses thing...because full healing won't be happening before at least 6 weeks after the actual procedure.
    I haven't the vision I had hoped for after my cataract procedure ..because of other situations with my eyes they could only put in a certain type of lens..

  20. Hope your recovery is progressing well! Hugs!

  21. All the best! Cataract surgery was one of the best things that ever happened to me...I had not realized how flat, dark and muddy colors had become until after surgery--what a change! I don't remember how I got through the part about not being able to do much sewing, knitting or reading, as it's been 3 years (probably because I don't WANT to remember lol), but it's all good now.

  23. THinking about you and so wishing for the very best of outcomes for both those precious eyes of yours! Tony had wonderful results with his and he did need to get new prescription glasses. But has been smooth sailing ever since so hang in there. It is amazing what this procedure can do.

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
