It’s always something— with updates!

I’m on my way for an emergency visit to the Big City due to a detached retina. Ugh.

Update 4:21 pm: Surgery is done and my retina is hopefully repaired. Have to spend the night in town because the doctor doesn’t want me traveling that far. And I have a follow up appointment first thing in the morning. 

The surgery wasn’t as bad as I feared. Not that I want to do this again.

I’ll update again later.

UPDATE 10/28 12:14pm: I had my appointment at 6:00 am because the surgeon was heading out of town. The eyepatch was removed. He seemed satisfied with his work. I still have to spend the day face down. Tomorrow I can walk normally.

I can’t see anything other than light and shadows out of my left eye. He said that’s normal and my vision will return once my eye refills with vitreous humor. (I guess my eye is a gas balloon for now.)

I got home just after 8 this morning- in time to feed the porch kittens and give one of my indoor cats his hyperthyroidism medicine on schedule. The inside cats are happy to have me home. 

I’ve got 3 weeks of light duty ahead. 


  1. OMG. keep me posted please

  2. Blessings and wishes for a good recovery. Love and Light

  3. Get Well Soon! I wish you a full and speedy recovery!

    1. Thank you. I'm seeing progress today. Or at least, a difference.
