Tuesday is the big day, eye surgery #5. This one is only a catarc and hopefully will go without any sort of excitement. Aside from just being tired of having my eyes molested and violated, I am extremely apprehensive about the 24 hours post surgery. My eye will be taped shut for a day, and my other eye doesn't work at all, well except for collecting allergies and getting itchy, but it is of no visual use whatsoever. I have always been independent and have put a lot of work into taking care of my diabetes, well at least for the last several years on that part. It is damned humbling and frightening as hell to have someone have to feed you,cook for you, poke your finger, bolus your pump. I'm hoping one day is the extent of that nonsense, I know my limitations and weaknesses, and being taken care of in that fashion, even just for a day, will walk me right up to the edge of insanity.

Howdy Silicone
I am sorry you feel that way.

Kinda like my late, totally blind wife "Jem" wanting to do for herself whatever she could even though it would have been simpler for us both for me do it for her.

I pray your surgery and recovery will go well and you'll be able to go see well through your improved eye.

God's best to you and yours.
