Surgery

Posted on Friday, May 6th, 2016

Dave!Sigh.

Every since I got an infection after an accident in the Costa Rican rainforest, I've been plagued with problems with my eyes. My vision goes blurry. My eyelids develop cysts. I experience shooting pain. They get tired easily. It's just a parade of misery that won't go away. And this past week I developed more cysts that my body couldn't eliminate, so say hello to my fifth surgery on my eyelids.

The surgery itself is fairly simple. They shoot hideously painful drugs into your lid to numb things down. They put a metal clip in your eye. They flip your lid. They slice it open. They cut the offending material out. They stitch you up. They unclamp your eye. They put a patch on you. You drive home.

Not entirely horrible, so far as things go, but irritating. I was completely wiped out when I got home and went straight to bed. Jake, who was apparently glad to see me, gave me mad hugs...

He was a little freaked about the appearance of my eye, however...

And the reason I knew this is that I looked up once he changed position and saw him doing this with his eye...

And lest you think Jenny wasn't supportive... she took over when I moved to the couch. Like Jake, the freaky appearance of my eye was something she had to investigate...

It's nice to have cats to help(?) with the recovery process.

    I’ve had styes before and they said that if it didn’t heal on its own, they would do that surgery. Sounded so painful. Hope it wasn’t too bad for you.

    Thanks for the update and details on the eye surgery you had. Hope the healing process is going good/better.
