I posted that chart on Tuesday on how we think life will be, and how God's plan for our life will be! I even mentioned that saying "the best laid plans of mice and men...". Yep, we can plan and think what we like - not usually the way it works!!!!
I went to the eye doctor on Tuesday for an exam for new glasses. I am wearing older glasses at the moment, as my last ones broke beyond fixing. Just need to see clearly again!
Well, that is where the plan changed!!!
I have to have cataract surgery - period.
OK, I knew that I need surgery - yes I knew that. He said that they are substantially worse than they were last visit. Did I want that to be my only answer? NO!
I guess giving me no other option is one way of making me do it!
I know that probably thousands of people every week have this surgery. That doesn't help. It scares the beejeebus out of me to have someone mess with my eyes.
Even with being terrified - it is a good thing.
I just can't imagine waking up each morning and being able to see without reaching for my glasses. It will be wonderful to not see halos around lights and even the moon! It will be great to not see ghost figures around things on TV. It will be great to see distance well and to see clearly.
Yes, as scared as I am - it will be wonderful to see clearly again.
I have worn glasses since I was 7. The prospect of maybe not wearing glasses at all is amazing to me.
It will be a 3 day process. VERY early mornings. They will pick me up and deliver me home.
Exam and surgery #1 on day one (longest day). Post op and surgery #2 on day two. Post op on day three - at which I will be released to drive if all is well. (I can drive until surgery).
This is going to happen on Oct. 17, 18, 19.
It is amazing to me to think that in less than two weeks from now - I will be able to see clearly again. It is amazing to think I may get to start my 68th revolution around the sun - glasses free! I never would have thought that could happen.
I guess I will see how well Medicare and supplemental insurance work as well. I have never once used either!
Scared - yes! Excited - yes!
I just pray that the doctors and all involved are guided by God and do a perfect job.
Just thought I would let you know!
Have great day everyone!!!!!
