It must be so painful, I wish you a speed recovery too. All the best for you !

Strangely, it hasn’t been too terribly painful - uncomfortable but not too bad (thankfully!). But then, before the surgery the pain had gotten so bad it had become difficult to leave the house…so maybe I ended up with a pretty high threshold for the pain? It’s already to the point that I often forget about it…unless I look into a mirror. O_O  And the pain I was experiencing before is GONE, which is an immense relief. Thanks so much for the well wishes, David!

I missed this one. What happened to your eye?

It had to be eviserated (most of it removed) due to advanced glaucoma. It ended up being the only option to manage the pain.  So for the next 8 weeks I’m either wearing sunglasses or an eye patch in public until I get my prosthesis, as the eye is a bit….well, disturbing…if I don’t.

Good luck! Sending positivity and white light.

Aw, thanks! Stupid that I should be so self conscious about it.  I’ve been in and out of stores a few times with it, but last night was the first time working and having to REALLY interact with people.  I made some idiotic errors but nothing that couldn’t be fixed…hoping tomorrow will be better — and me less neurotic! LOL

Good luck, matey XD

Arrrrr!! ;)  On the bright side, I think my Halloween costume this year is a given…

Oh! I wish you a speedy recovery!

Thanks, Mar! It’s healing up a lot faster than I thought it would. :)
