Good to hear your eyes are doing as expected & hoped for, and hope & pray they heal at a fast rate.  If you are like me, the mental aspect is as hard or harder than the physical, but you're gonna get through it.

Well progress continues...the gas bubble that has been in the right eye to hold the layers together as it heals is gone now so the next surgery can take place. The first date I can get surgery is September 8th unless somebody else cancels. Then they PROMISED us a much shorter recovery time than this last bunch, maybe only 3 or 4 weeks. What a way to spend a summer...on the other hand they told us that just 10-15 years ago I would have just been blind and that would be that. Praise the Lord for medical progress !

Thanks again everybody,

Jim

P.S. The wonderful woman I'm married to has not only nursed me all summer, she put up over 450 square bales of hay in the last two weeks :worshippy1: that's on the wagons, to the barn, and up the conveyor to the loft :worshippy1:

We will still be short rounds for the beef cattle but the loft sure smells and looks awesome :thumbs:

Feeling very blessed that I can actually see again and am allowed to tinker some around the house. Nothing heavier than a gallon of milk, no bouncing on farm equipment, no dust and "we still don't know about your job" but I CAN SEE :dancingbanana: The Dr's have said numerous times that 10 years ago I would have just stayed blind in the right eye, so this is FANTASTIC :dancingbanana: oh wait no bouncing....I can make my own coffee again and all those normal things that we (well atleast I always took for granted)

 

Did actually acomplish to start on wiring some new light circuits in shop see post about "quality tools"

 

Thanks again for all the kind words and prayers throughout this summer.

Glad to hear you're still on a positive path.
Out senses are so taken for granted, then when one isn't as strong as it used to be or heaven forbid, gone...
Just happy you're doing well.

Still got fluid build up in right eye, on meds to help that BUT am allowed out of house. Actually drove to town to get a hydraulic hose, with a chaperone of course, my wife truely is a gem.   After 4 mos. of no steering wheel or clutch of any kind...WOW !  am I rusty. Her car is the only auto and its in for repairs, my car and both trucks are sticks.

 

Got some work done (see wrenching post) I am absolutely worn out. Hot soak and sleep coming up.
