One year anniversary of being discharged from the hospital after my mitral valve surgery. Boy was I happy to get out after 12 days in the hospital.
And now just a little over a day since I had my cataract surgery. Compared to open heart surgery it is a walk in the park. And already I can’t believe how much better I can see. It’s a miracle.
Now the eye is healing and my new vision will have to settle in after the eye heals and the inflammation in the eye goes down. I really have no pain. Just a little discomfort and minor itching.
My distance vision still requires glasses and in two weeks I will need another prescription for the vision that will change from now until then. The doctor was going to give me a prescription for just two weeks but I have so many old pair of glasses that I found one with a prescription that works for now.
It seems that this might be a 25 year old or more pair of glasses that were my fathers and I’ve had all these years in my dresser draw. That’s what Sharon and Elise think. If so wouldn’t that be a full circle moment.
I learned a long time ago while at Loma Linda University Hospital in California for my prostate cancer treatment that there are “sign posts along the way”, telling you that everything is for a reason and that all is good. Wouldn’t it be something if the glasses I wear for the next few weeks are my dads and he’s helping me with my new good vision to see things clearly. There are some things that just can’t be explained and that make me believe in G-D.
