On Good Friday, Michael and I went to Atlanta for my follow-up appointment with my eye surgeon. I had my fifth eye muscle surgery two weeks ago and I must say I’m getting a little tired of them. My vision isn’t right and I almost hoped he would say I needed another surgery. However, I don’t really want to go through another surgery so I was in a bit of a quandary. He measured my double vision and said it isn’t quite bad enough for another one. It still might improve some since my brain has to process the change and this hasn’t happened yet.
The worst part about it is reading. It’s hard to explain but pictures or dark writing on the side will bleed over the main area of my vision. This is very annoying especially since I read a lot. It makes me tired. I’ve started to listen to books-on-tape so so I don’t have to read the books. I’m still in the dark ages because now I think you can put the books on an ipod or another device to listen to them. I’m just now using my first lap-top and they have been around for a while.
I’m a bit bummed by this but I’m trying not to let it get me down. I’m glad this is my only physical issue. I have to preach at Circle of Mercy this Sunday so I printed out the sermon even larger than normal since the words tend to be a bit difficult to read now. The hardest part is turning the pages without getting them stuck! I think I’ll feel better as time goes on.
