In prep for all surgeries there are a lot of hoops to jump thru. First the ‘TALK’ (what this entails). They measure the eye ball, take your vitals. Measure the eyeball again. Then you need a ‘short’ physical by a General practitioner to ensure you are physically able to withstand surgery.
Everything within a rocks throw. So off to Urgent care for the physical. The Dr. wonders about a couple things. Go down the street to imaging for a chest x-ray. Then come back tomorrow, I don’t like the blood pressure. Sherry explains, the blood pressure always goes up when I see a doctor, well come back anyway I need to verify it. That was Monday.
Today Sherry completed the last hurdle. Chest x-ray good, the Blood pressure was ‘better’, so she is good to go. Tomorrow they call her for the time she needs to be there for pre-op.
Son Mark is coming over to hold my hand and lend me his ears if I need them while ‘MY REAL EARS’ are “IN THE OTHER ROOM OF MYSTERIES”. Sherry gets nervous in times like this, it is her nature. Something about someone actually working on your eyes that is bothersome. Shucks a couple ladies here on the net have hubby’s who get ‘shots’ in their eyes, that does make your skin move the wrong way! (smile)
It is amazing what can be done with surgery and medical miracles to give us a better life. I have had the surgery on both eyes and all went well, I was fortunate to have Dr. James Gills, founder of St. Luke's Eye institute himself do my surgery.
Sherry will have one of Dr. Gill’s associates do her work. Just because a surgery has become common place, doesn’t mean it is ‘simple’, I trust St. Luke’s, but I will also be saying a few prayers for my girl. She has been fighting bad eye sight now for a long time. Just finally getting enough of it, or getting enough nerve to do something about it.
She wanted the ‘intraocular’ lenses, but she is not a candidate they say. So she has opted for ‘laser’ surgery to correct the Astigmatism.
I will list a full report of costs and recovery for those who have expressed interest, after her Appointment for the first eye, Thursday.
