Nov. 23 update

Nov. 19 I had a cornea transplant in my right eye. Nov. 20 I had to see the surgeon again to have the patch removed and make sure all looked ok--it went well. He did put a soft contact on the eye to help it stay in place and not "leak." Not sure what that meant but Dr. Stackhouse said if it came out. don't fret, it would be ok. Well, it did not come out. Today, I saw Dr. Johnson to see how everything was going. Stackhouse tried to make it for later in the week but with Thanksgiving on Thursday and Friday they were closed, he had me see Johnson (a partner), just to make sure all was still well. They did take the contact out. Yeah!! Still limited to just leisure walking for exercise, no lifting, and nothing in my eye but the drops. My vision has improved a little. I can now see 2 fingers and last Friday just saw hand movement.
Have a wonderful, blessed, and safe Thanksgiving and remember all we are thankful for. I am very blessed that my vision can be improved and we are pretty healthy.
