Calling my friends together to offer up your thoughts and prayers for me~
On Wednesday, January 2, 2008, I will be having eye surgery~
Having a cataract removed and an Intraocular Crystal Lens implant~
(I'm kind of hoping for a fresh set of poetic eyes)

I hear that these operations are highly successful and though I'm a little anxious, I know that all will be well~

Bill and my family will be with me and I 'may' or 'may not' be able to access the computer for a few days ... so, not to worry ... when I can, I will let you all know that I'm fine~

Keep me and my surgeon and caretakers in vigil
that all goes well~

Happy New Year to ALL of you~
Love and LOTS OF *HUGLETS*
~*Marge*~

Marge,

I'll be thinking of you - the world is a beautiful place and your eyes help capture that beauty to share.  So, we all will be glad that they will return all fresh for this new year.

Dear Marge, I am keeping you in my prayers for the full success of your surgery and for you to trust and remain calm, as well as for your surgeon to be assisted by the Angels.
All will be well, no doubt.
I love to think of your new poetic eyes!! Your charm will be doubled!
God bless.
Love and hugs.

Marge, they want me to do this - so to be honest I am so glad you are my "Mikey" as I know you will tell it like it is.

I am so anxious about it I would rather walk around in the fog!   I can offer you a hug on this, as I know the fear of having it done for sure.

Here, it is VERY expensive to get done, about $1,000 an eye.  They do one eye at a time, and you do the drops for about a week.  However, YES it is very successful.  My friend no longer even needs glasses!  She claimed after three days for the first time in her life she could see her computer screen on normal view, and I know you may like that part.

Good luck!  Pahleeze let us know your experience, so the chickens to be know not to be so nervous.

              
Peace!

Thank you all so much~

I'm sure it will be fine, but I know that you all know that the more HE knows, the better we are~

So thanks for keeping the watch~

Mysteria~
Well .... because the doctor and I chose to implant the Crystal Lens ... best for fixing both near-sightedness AND far-sightedness, USA Medicare Benefits call this lens an UPGRADE ... and the upfront $$$$$ for ONE eye is $2000.00~
Then of course the 'other' bills will come in after Medicare has paid their 80% of the total medical bills~

Soooooooooo, here's looking at ya'~
And I WILL tell it like it is~

I've already started the eye drops ... and those continue until surgery and for weeks afterwards~

LOL ... my surgeon would like it if I weighed a little more ... but I've heard that before ... IF they charged by the pound I'd make out like a bandit !!

They will give me a light sedative ... not cause I'll need it or anything .... oh yeah !

I'm laughing now ... hope it continues~

My husband has done both eyes at a few months distance. And he is totally satisfied. He went and got it done without any fear, I think I was more worried waiting for him than he having it done (outpatient clinic).
This is to encourage you both, dear Marge and dear Sharon ...
Everything will be all right.
Love and hugs.

I have decided
to start a new trend
to lighten up
the year again
What do you think
that they will say
to the eye patch
that I wear on that day?

I think that it
looks rather in style
for 2008
and then awhile~

Gotta keep
my sense of humor
so there will not
be a rumor
that I have lost
my poetic eye
That would NEVER DO
oh me, oh my !!

Mommy Muys had both eyes done and she said 'nothing to it'. We'll keep you in our thoughts and hope you'll see 2008 in a new poetical vision.

Just a quick note - I'm doing okay.
Had doctor appt this morning and except
for some elevated pressure in the eye,
I'm doing pretty good.
Eye drops should take care of that
and I have another appointment tomorrow.
Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers.
Will get back when I can stay longer.
