*****Update****** For all those who prayed... thank you very much! The surgery went well. I head back to the doctor tomorrow for another check. Hopefully all will look good. I can't see much of anything right now, so please bear with me if there are typos :) As for the meds during surgery.... same as last time. I remember about 2 minutes of the whole experience. Those meds are AWESOME!!! Again, thank you for your prayers. I hope to know soon how much this has impacted my vision. Hopefully in a noticable way*********
This morning I am headed over to the Dr. office for my eye surgery. Not real excited about it. I guess I should be, but I'm not. Hopefully I will be excited when it is over and maybe in a couple of days find that I can see so much better. That woudl be the ultimate outcome. If you are a praying person, please pray for that for me. I feel as though God is going to bless me through this, even in a small way. And though that may be small - to just make my sight a little bit better - in all actuality, it is HUGE for me. I'm not looking for all of my sight back - just make the sight I have clear. I pray I get that.
What I am NOT looking forward to, is the procedure. I hate all things "eyeball". Working on an eye creeps me out. I think I said it before when I had my other eye worked on. It's just creepy to me. I don't want anyone touching my eye!!! I was crazy enough to read up on the procedure and what they will be doing. Well, ignorance would have been bliss, because now I know and I wish I didn't.
The last time I had this surgery, I remembered NOTHING. Well, I'll tell you what I remembered. I was on a bed being wheeled into the surgical room. They stopped at the door to open them. I don't remember going in the doors, I don't remember the procedure. The next thing I remember is being again on the other side of the surgical room doors, in the hallway. It's STRANGE. I do remember at one point in time, feeling someone touching my hand. They held it for a long time. I just remember my mind feeling that. It's strange but the feeling was in my head and not on my hand. I was apparently awake and talking during the entire procedure. Who knows what I must have been saying. If I was awake, I'm sure I wasn't saying "hey, this is cool that you are going to poke that thing into my eyeball". I guess I'm glad I don't remember. How they get that medication to work like that, I'm not sure.... but I'd like to have that again.
I'm a bit more nervous now because when I was scheduling the surgery they said that they are using different medications now and it would not be like last time. NO!!!! MAKE IT LIKE LAST TIME!!!! I was having too many things run through my head to ask exactly which part would be different. I hope the memory part will not be different.
Kent and Megan came over last night to pray with me about the surgery. I thought that was very nice of them. It is good to know that you have people praying with you. It's also good to know I have such wonderful friends.
