Well, I survived!
The cataract is gone and I am the current owner of a giant dilated eyeball!
Pre-surgery wasn’t painful. Lots of warm blankets and TLC.
Surgery wasn’t painful. I could feel the doctor digging around in my eye, but it didn’t hurt.
And I’ve had no pain since the surgery.
Everything is still very blurry, but I can now see shapes and movement out of my eye! Yea!!!!

The Doctor was amazing – he managed to pop that old cataract sucker out like a giant zit – (sorry if you are reading this while eating) and he didn’t have to use any stitches (thought he was going to have to put in at least 6 or 7)
The nurses were amazing – kept feeding me just enough “stuff” to keep me calm so that I didn’t panic and climb off the table. They also gave me apple juice and a peanut butter bar.
Now, the tissue swelling has to go down and I should be good to go.
to everyone who sent me good thoughts and prayers! Your kindness means the world to me!
And lucky Beloved, he gets to sleep with a hot pirate wench HAHAHA!
