Eye Surgery

I may not be posting for a while.  I'm having eye surgery in the morning.  I have wrinkled retinas and they're doing the worst one, my right eye, tomorrow.  We have to be there at 5:30 AM!!!  My close friends are hysterical with laughter right now.  I didn't even know there WAS a 5:30 in the morning!  I'm not a morning person and have, on may days before Ambien, gone to bed around that time, so it's just a really late night to me. 

If they insert a gas bubble in my eye to expand it, blah, blah, blah, my vision may be blurred for anywhere from 1 day to eight weeks.  I'll take the one day, thank you.

John will be on scooping duty, kitten duty, and all the duties actually, for an unknown period of time.  I probably won't be able to read or sew for a while, and that will kill me.  If my eye is remarkably improved, I still won't be able to read until I get a new lens in my glasses.  It's going to be a long month or so  No idea when they'll do the other eye.

Mom and I went to the grocery store today.  I bought a ton of already prepared food from the deli.  John's a good cook, too, so we won't starve.  Most of the laundry is done, the house is picked up, litter boxes full of clean litter, and we have plenty of cat and dog food.  Whew!  I need a rest.

I'll let everyone know my progress as soon as I can.  The kittens will be huge.  I didn't tell John that litter box training starts at 3.5 weeks.

Cheri, Lisa, Julie, and Jen - I don't think I'll be at adoptions Saturday.  



  1. The best of luck to you on your surgery! I get up at 5:30 five days a week, it really IS a time!
    Hopefully your hubby will take kitten pix so we can see them, albeit retroactively.
    Heal up quickly...and try some audiobooks! I really enjoy them.

  2. I hope all goes well with the surgery and the healing. I look forward to your return, but don't rush it on my account!

  3. Oh, paws and fingers crossed that all goes well and purrs for a SPEEDY recovery!

    Our human remembers you're not a morning person...but she's up around 3:30AM every day, year-round. Even so, having to BE somewhere at 5:30AM is a stretch.

    Best of luck....Hugs and universal healing Light.

    -Kim and the boys

    P.S. Maybe John could do a quick post here to let us know you're okay? Just a thought, though of course that won't be high on his priority list. LOL. Tell him we wish him good luck with the kittens.

  4. Good luck Barb - we will miss you at adoptions!
