Now I Know How They Feel

Hey, Y'all,
Now I know what the elderly in the nursing home must feel like when they have nothing to do but "rest" and watch television. Yesterday morning I went to the Laser Eye Center in Hurst and had my right eye worked on. It went quite well, but I was sent home to "nap" for three hours and then to "rest" with my eyes closed as much as possible and do nothing. Arghhh! Do you realize how difficult that can be? Also for the next three months I am to use lubricant eye drops in that eye every hour that I am awake. I have already done so with the left eye after it was Lasiked. That keeps the eye from getting dry and hurting.

Fortunately, this time the Dr. only had to do a very minimal amount of laser work. Finally, this morning, I decided at around 4:30 that my night's "rest" was over. I go in this morning to have him check the eye and pronounce it doing well. Then I will return on next Friday (probably) to hopefully have the temporary clear contact lens removed from the eye. 

I have been in here in my workroom making a gift card to go with a baby quilt that I made for my new great grandson, who is due to be born in March. Carol and I are going to a baby shower being held for new baby, his Mama Julia, and his two older sisters, Alyssa and Brooke after Carol and I get through at the doctor's office. I will have Carol take pictures for me, because I am sure my focus will be decidedly "off". 

I won't be able to finish Carol's quilt until sometime this coming week. Hoping to be able to drive to Sunday School and Church tomorrow morning and to teach as well. I have been wearing my goggles provided by dr's office to protect my operated eye. Yesterday, Carol got us some chicken from KFC and we had that for lunch. All I had for supper was some hot chocolate and a few pepper jack Cheese-its. I will be eating some breakfast soon. I have to be ready to leave here at 8:15 this morning, so lots to do.

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. Thank you for prayers on my behalf. Bye for now. More later.

It's like being in the hospital where you're confined to bed and especially connected to all kinds of intravenous things. That's one of the most helpless feelings I've ever had.

Ruby, you are a dynamo! Glad to hear things are coming along. Are you going to sign up for the A to Z this year?
