Left Eye Problem And Going Off On Medical Leave

FYI, tomorrow I will have complicated surgery on my left eye involving a triple procedure: a corneal transplant, cataract removal, and a lens implant...all to be done in one fell swoop. Needless to say I will have to be offline for some time to allow my eye to recover. I have great confidence in my surgeon, one of the best in Mississippi, so I will be in good hands. God Willing, I will see y'all later and be back online later this month. BTW, this is a public domain Net picture and not one of my own eye.

Fare well, and good healing to you.

Good luck, on your surgery. I have a friend at work who had to have the same procedures about three years ago, and she has done well.

Scary! You do have a beautiful eye though... many different shades of blue.

Hope all goes well. And can't wait to see more of the garden when you get back.

Hi Jon, it seems your surgery must have gone well, for you were able to come visit my new site! My husband has had surgery like that on both eyes, one at a time, and while the recovery took a little time, his vision is so much improved. I send good thoughts your way for continued recovery and good blogging!

Thanks so very much to all visitors to my blog who have left comments with very kind words wishing me a speedy recovery as well as personal e-mails and cards. Although I am not completely healed and well yet, I have decided to "cheat" and get back online now and then. (Don't tell my opthalmologist/surgeon!)
