Thank You all for the wonderful wishes on my laser zapping eye surgery.
Here is what happened on Friday.
After having drops in both eyes there was another exam.
Lots of bright lights, too many bright lights.
Then more numbing drops.
Then more drops.
And last but not lest more drops.
Doctor straps on a headset and protective glasses, Hello Sci-Fi, then tells me it will hurt for a second because the laser is hot. But he will stop it so I can regroup.
I think screaming is frowned upon.
He starts, bright yellow and white lighting bolts, zap zap zap then the forth one is hot and rather painful. Stop and rest, zap zap zap and the forth one heats up again stop and rest.
This is repeated several times and then we are done.
Maybe all total a minute ?
One very long minute.
A very long minute.
Remember the old saying about, poke a needle in my eye ?
Well, yes it was like that.
All I see it bright red in my left eye, from the light of the laser.
By the time I walk out the office door the red is gone.
This is replaced by the starting of a migraine on the throbbing left side of my head.
I tell my son ice pack and a migraine pill will be needed when I get home.
The first few blocks from the Doctors office the left side of my head is in pain.
Oh Goody !
Then it starts the get better mile by mile and by the time I get home, I live about 10 minuets away from the doctors, my headache is gone !
Oh My Goodness !
My eye feels tender and bit blurry for reading but all is good.
Here is the eye !
I love the reflection of the sky in it.
Still tender and when I touch it, sorta feels like I had my eye zapped by a laser !
Oh wait ! my eye was zapped with a laser.
Of course the fact I whomped my eye with my hand, while trying to fix a blanket
that had two very sleepy gud dugs on it, I'm sure didn't help.
In six weeks we will see how the repair takes.
So all and all it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be
and I am quite pleased.
I don't use this word lightly but I HATE having anyone and anything touch my eyes.
I am so glad this is over.
Daughter came over to cook me lunch of Bun thit nurong chay.
So good and for me a perfect dish.
Plus a treat of homemade "Butterfingers" candy.
I don't eat much candy and I am not a big fan of chocolate.
Yes, yes, I know I am the only woman in American who is not crazy for chocolate !
But I like "Butterfingers" even though I scape their very bad chocolate off.
I can't even remember the last time when I ate one.
But I don't eat them because they are made by Nestle and I do not support that company.
Just like I don't shop at WalMart or Home Depot, buy Russian Vodka
or eat at Chipotle Grill........
A big NO !
Back to "Butterfingers"
If you go on line you can find many recipes but the first one Daughter made was with three ingredients. Peanut butter, candy corn and chocolate.
Oh My Goodness, this tasted so good. The texture was was close but not as dry/crunchy
but so close in taste.
Next time daughter will try a different recipe that has corn flakes in it. If you think that sounds weird just read the "Butterfingers" label. Surprise ! it has corn flakes in it !
She made a few for me with less chocolate.
And just because I can here is you pretty to start the week.
If I tried to grow these outside any number of critter would have eaten the first green shoots pushing through the soil.
But inside I got to see such lovely flowers blooming.
Have a great start to the week.
