Milking It!


Monday I had cataract surgery,
and it has gone very well.




Terry took great care of me,
as did my ophthalmologist Dr. Burcham
and the caring staff at the Surgery Center of the Rockies.

It was sheer bliss to lie on the couch downstairs after my surgery,
binge listening to multiple episodes of The Young and the Restless
and napping until late into the evening.
Terry kept me well-supplied with coffee, water, pizza (for dinner)
and reminders to use three different kinds of eyedrops every two hours.


You Bet, Terry!



I plan to start visiting blogging buddies today (Friday),
as I ease back into using a computer.

I'll be back with a regular post next Friday!
Wishing you all well!

  2. And we wish you well too!
    Been through the cataract surgery too.
    Just one more thing I checked off the 'to do' list.

  3. Glad your surgery went well... I was told that I may have to go down this path in a year or two. Take care and let the healing come.

    1. Thanks, Jeff! That's what I'm doing, although laying low is very difficult for me! Cataract surgery is no big deal, other than you can't do much for two weeks. Have a great weekend, my friend!

  4. Ha ha...love the pose with the mug in the chair. It is the traditional pose of all bloggers everywhere.

    Glad you came through it OK and can't wait to hear all about it!

    1. I'm doing well, Sandi! This eye went much better than the last one, and I thought the last one went well! The worst part is having to take it slow for two weeks. I do not do slow well! Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Kay! I'm doing well. That eye patch is my friend, especially at night. I have it so taped on! I managed to make it one night on my back with a pillow under my knees ~ Now I'm back on my stomach again. I hope you are over your cold by now!

  9. Louise! I'm so glad it went well! You look so cute and cuddly! Milk it girl!!! :)))) Soaps...my gosh, General Hospital was my addiction for about 20 years. I had to ween off that show and it wasn't easy!!! :) I don't have a tv anymore so it makes it a lot easier ha ha.

    1. Thanks, Rain! I've been watching The Y&R for 46 years, come November 14 (the day after I emigrated to the USA). I can't stop watching now ~ I've got too much time invested in it now. Please don't take my tv!!! LOL Have a great weekend, my friend!

  10. Hugh had a similar patch too. Love the rug, is that an Aran pattern? And coffee served up, lap it all up. Did they say.." NO bending over" and I cannot remember for how long, it was a good while. No driving for 3 weeks too. Hugh struggled with that most of all. Heal well. I wish our local hospital had a shorter time to wait and more surgeons, at the moment not one is available!!!

    1. Yes, Jean, the rug is an Aran pattern. My mother-in-law knit it ~ She's from Ireland. I have a beautiful sweater that she knit too ~ one of my most prized possessions. I just can't lift anything over 25 pounds (11.3 kilograms) for two weeks. I asked Dr. Burcham if he could tell Terry I couldn't cook dinner for a few nights, and he told Terry I couldn't do housework for six months! That lasted all of the day and evening of my surgery. I can drive now, although I haven't. I'm sorry that you have to wait so long for a surgeon! Eyes are so important! Have a lovely weekend, you two!

    1. What, indeed! ~ LOL I'm 44 episodes behind, even after binging on Monday! At least I plan to be home until after Christmas, so maybe I'll catch up. My grandmother loved the Y&R ~ now I'm grandmother aged! say it isn't so. Have a good one, my rhyming friend!

    1. Thanks, Yvonne! I am doing well and can see much better, especially in the distance. I hope you are having a good weekend. I'm on my way over to your blog. I had a big yellow sticky note on my bathroom mirror this morning reminding me to visit you first! Hugs to you!

  15. Looks as if you're recovering nicely. I watched The Young and The Restless more than 30 years ago and then lost interest. Several years ago I visited a friend who watched the show. I was shocked to see that many of the same actors were still on it. They were older versions of themselves, just as I am an older version of me.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Hi, Janie! I'm coming along well! I never kicked the Y&R habit, and I've got too much invested in the show now to stop. Nikki and I have tracked through life together ~ LOL! Have a good one!
