2 Weeks Post Strabismus Surgery

So its been an interesting couple of weeks for me.  Still have a ways to go before the sutures dissolve and I am back on the mend.  I can’t wait until they dissolve because they itch!  My eyes just feel like I have bad allergies.  Puffy, sore, red, itchy.  Once the sutures dissolve there will be 6-12 months of vision therapy to try and help things stay in their place.  It’s going to be a long road but I’m excited!  To see better.  To see people better.  What can be bigger than that?

Here I was 2 weeks ago:

After surgery in the recovery room

Here I am today.  I think you could say contrast!

Big difference!

I am very grateful for good doctors that treat both conditions and patients.  I’m grateful for new and emerging technologies and how they bless my life.  I’m grateful for my eyes and that they can see at all with all the problems.  I hope they have it in them to see in a new way.  Hope and pray.

The New Year is coming!  I have one race left in October (which I am woefully unprepared for) but also Thanksgiving and Christmas on my own.  And my new townhouse!  That’s a lot of firsts!  I can’t wait to see all of that with my new aligned equal eyes!  Wahoo!

And I hope to someday be able to look all of my loved one’s in the eye and say ‘I love you more than you will ever know’.
