Surgery Successful Eye now Healing

Hiya folks and furry friends!

Thank you so much for all your purrs and prayers.

Sunday morning surgery went very well...  
(the first thing I remember after waking up was hearing a discussion about intubating me due to snoring.) Don't remember the intubation, but still have a sore throat and sore abdominal muscles...  My eye was covered up with lots of bandages and a metal plate.

Had trouble sleeping Sunday night. Kept waking up... had to sleep on my side or on my stomach to keep the gas bubble in my eye next to the retina.  Is my eye sore!  (had an Rx for pain..)

Monday morning, went into the specialist's office to have bandage removed and get meds for my eye.  Have to wash out my eye several times a day and use three different eye drops.  The atropine (eye dilator) is only once a day in the morning.  The antibiotic and steroid are four times a day!!

While at the office, the doctor checked my eye and let me know that there was no macular problems and the retina looked firmly re attached.

So far just seeing light and shadows until the gas dissipates, which takes about two weeks. Looking forward to each day to 'see' how well my eye recovers.

What timing for this to happen!  Not only did my retina detach on my wedding anniversary IAug 23), My mother is having abdominal surgery next week to repair a prolapsed bladder.  Please pray for both of us.  I'm the only support Mom has...(she had a brain tumor removed several years ago).

Will write more Later...
