My eye is doing a lot better. I went to the doctor on Tuesday for the postop exam, and he said that it was healed. I'm still on eye drops, and I'm on this one that is like ibuprofen. Yay. NOT. Anyway, I am happy that I got these surgeries over with. But can a surgery affect your emotions in a way? Last night, I was feeling very sad, and I think I was stressed out, because my sugar level was 211 this morning. The thing about my eye, is that I can still see, but I still can't read well yet. I got a chance on what it was like to be blind though, but I had light presentation, because I could see the sun, and anything that was shinning from the bandage. My bandage was on for 4 hours.

Also last week, I got my prosthetic eye in! I am very happy about it! Although on Easter Sunday, it flew out, because I was washing it the wrong way. But I'm still learning to take care of it.

You're a very brave person and I admire you. Yes, any surgery can affect your emotions among other things like Blood Glucose, Blood Pressure, and in my case Brain Power. It can make you not think clearly for a time, but all this crapola can be overcome & it appears you're doing just that.

I shared in another of your discussions about my Grandfather in the 1950s removing his glass eye and scaring us children with it. I assume your prosthetic eye is not glass but just take your time with it and don't be in a hurry. By the way, my Grandfather also loved to wear his pirate look, as he called it, his black eye patch. It was funny for him and us kids. He was such a joy to be around as I'm sure you are.

Please keep us informed of your progress. I AM still praying for you, really. I don't just say that.

Wishing & praying for your best…Tony5657 in New Braunfels, TX

Hang in there Hyu-chan,

My wife went/is going through the very same thing but gradually her eyes are getting better and better. It takes time for your brain and eye to coordinate after a drastic change, like surgery, and supply the correct vision, if this makes sense. When you change something physically through surgery sometimes it takes time for your body to adjust.

You're a true "trooper" and an inspiration. You can doooooooooooo it. :o)
