Well, it's been a week and two days since my first eye surgery.I've had three surgeries in the span of 8 days and I'm still waiting to see(literally) The doctor said I should be seeing nornally within a week. That remains to be seen. I'm trying to stay positive, and not let things get me down. It's very frustrating to not be able to bend down, pick up heavy things, sleep on my left side only and not touch my face or see. I have to admit,I've broken these rules at least once maybe more than once. But with no serious repercussions. I'm hoping to be able to type this stuff myself soon (thanks Trish) and to see normally.

Have to admit that of all the possible complications, blindness is the more scary for me. Somehow I have trouble seeing how I could adjust to it. Ohhhhh, that was bad. Sorry!
