Cateract surgery this morning. Love those people at Center for Sight. It truly was a piece of cake. The pain (you were right, Pat) is the eye drops you have to put in several times a day.
The doctor told me a fine job. It always cracks me up when they say that….like I did anything but lie there and stay still. It happened all the time at Anderson, too. Every test, every procedure they would tell me what a good job I did.
These guys even had a viewing booth so Jerry could watch the whole thing with someone who gave him a blow by blow description of everything that was going on. They sent us home with a DVD so I could see the surgery (not until I’m done with eye number 2, thank you anyway) I told Jerry it was a shame they didn’t have a viewing booth for my surgery in Houston and a DVD. He and Erin could have watched all seven hours…Ha! So we’re home with a whole day ahead of us.
I have a turtle patrol meeting tonight and plan to go. And tomorrow I have an eye doctor’s appointment and lunch with friends at my favorite place in Englewood, Mango Bistro. I’m certainly bouncing back from THIS surgery a lot faster than the last one.
Awhile ago, MD Anderson’s PR department sent out a letter to assorted press and media saying that I was willing to be interviewed regarding my cancer journey and care at Anderson. It went to a variety of places all over the country and I’ve done a couple interviews for Cancer magazines. Then last week, Mark Seiden, from the Venice Gondolier, called wanting to interview me for a piece for their paper. After he read some of the blog entries, Mark suggested I write my own piece. So I did and it’ll be in this Saturday’s Gondolier. Published, once again!
