surgery-update-i-can-see-kind-of
 Surgery update: I can see! (Kind of)

Both of my eyes have been operated on. I went from a -20.5 to a -1.5/-2ish. I have temporary glasses and I am waiting 2 weeks until everything is healed and I can get my permanent prescription because it will change as it heals.

I have some floaters and minor complications that I will get checked out in about 1.5 weeks. If that it OK I will get 1-2 more minor procedures and another retina check and I will be done.

It looks like with glasses I can now be correctable to 20/20 for the first time in my life.

I am in shock and I don’t know what I’m seeing or how to describe it. My brain is completely overloaded and confused. I’ll let this speak for it:

Starbucks:

“Why are you crying? Are you ok?”

“I can read every word on the menu! Every single word! I don’t need any help!”

I am well enough to try to work on some art today, so I will do that and see if I can get some of the rewards done for those who have donated to support me.

surgery-2-is-125-and-what-i-got-instead-of-flowers
 Surgery #2 is 1/25 AND what I got instead of flowers

Husband knows the story about how when I was 4 my blindness was undiagnosed. My family went to Disney World and I wasn’t able to see anything and had no idea I was there. While sitting on my Mom’s lap on the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ride it was the first time I saw anything in my life. I saw diving man and squiddy and freaked out because I had no idea there was a world at all around me and I wanted to hug squiddy.

The windows were concave, vaguely similar to what my prescription was and acted almost like my future glasses. Disney literally was the first thing I ever saw in my life because of that. So that James Harknell husband surprised me with this instead of flowers for my surgery that is fixing my blindness:

subs disney

The windows light up.

I think I’ll wait until Tuesday to put the batteries in. :)

P.S. On or about the first week of February I will be well enough to work again and I have some very big things planned for you all. Thank you so much for staying with me while I get well.

update-eye-surgery-1-is-complete-and-i-am-ok
 Update: Eye surgery 1 is complete and I am OK

The first eye surgery is complete and I am recovering. No complications so far amd the doctors say that I am healing very nicely. I still have some healing to do before my vision is totally right. I now have 1 blind eye and 1 not as blind eye and Harknell has been helping me and I am working from home as I am able.

Already I can see better than ever before in my left eye. I also am seeing different colors in each eye, which is really odd.

The second eye surgery will be on 1/25. Here are some photos that (don’t worry) are not gross – nothing they did to me was gross or bloody. I’ll still add some space to the entry just in case you guys are super squeamish – but trust me it’s just cool / weird looking and not gross.

The first one is my eye directly after being lasered. If I understand it correctly, my natural lens was cut painlessly under the skin without cutting into my eye at all. All I saw was colored lights. They then took me into the OR, knocked my ass mostly out and then sucked that out and replaced it with a functional lens implant. During that process I thought I saw leprechauns and long face aliens inside an opal cave and flowers and butterflies. I’m gonna try and draw that for you guys. All I remember is heading the doctor say “look forward”. I did my best and asked if that was forward and then he was like…”no”. Which I thought was funny at the time but was too drugged to notice.

I have to sleep with this thing for awhile and I am getting energy spurts and then crashes of body weakness:

eye2

I am still working on a secret page of art for those of you who donated. You can see why it’s going to take weeks for me to complete, as I can’t see or move my head much right now. I am in that part of post surgery where it is a battle between being tired and bored.

Thank you guys for all the get well cards and presents. It means a lot. If this trend continues it looks like you guys may have literally saved my sight.

I will post more when I feel better. My energy is crashing now again. I can’t wait to see again.
