Eye Surgery Scheduled!

I am getting my cataract surgery done on July 28. My friend Kelly is coming up from Nanaimo to spend three days here since I can't drive on the 28th or 29th and need a ride to and from Comox Hospital. I also can't bend over or carry anything at all heavy. "If you drop something, leave it on the floor!" says my doctor. I am always so grateful for everything she does for me! I will Have to name the guest room, "Kelly's Room"!

  2. I've been dealing with the "foggy vision" in my right eye since last December, and with the Covid-19 restrictions, my eye Dr. had his office closed until last Monday. I was lucky and got an appointment pronto and he scheduled me for the Cataract removal on July 29th. Good luck to you for a successful outcome and I'll be thinking of you when I go through my surgery.

    1. And good luck to you as well! From all reports it is a "piece of cake". I was amazed by how many of my friends and relatives have had it done that I never knew about!

  3. Good luck with your surgery. You will appreciate the end result. As for not lifting anything heavier then Ten Pounds is hard to do because it's something we've always done. A Small Bag of Groceries weighs more then that.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the improved vision.

    It's about time.

    1. The bending over and lifting parts are going to be the hardest rules to follow but I am determined to do it. Having help here in the house for a couple of days is going to make things a lot easier.

  4. I envy you, I'm still waiting. I was told it would take a year and a half and that was last fall. Now since this virus thing, god knows how long I have to wait. They called me the other day and seem to have no idea how long it will be. I'm thinking of finding a new optometrist.

    1. They say there is no real harm in waiting but when it gets to the point, like it did with me, that you can actually see your eyesight changing, it is time to take some action. I sometimes get a headache from trying to see and was recently told I should get new glasses. Well not before I get the surdery thank you very much! There should be many for you to choose from in your area, even if you had to go to Duncan or Nanaimo.
