Can You Read This?

Just wanted to pass along that my left eye is healing well. Apparently there is a scratch on it from the surgery, which is, I guess, "normal" since they scraped the heck out of it.

The analogy the doctor gave was like scraping your knee. The first layer of the skin is scraped off and thus, a healing process takes place...and the skin re-grows (or whatever the medical term should be). That is very much what they did to my eye. They scraped something off and now it needs to re-grow.

She took the band-aid off of it today. Recall from the previous post on this surgery that the band-aid was a contact lens. It was another torture session that lasted about a second. She took teeny forceps -- that's what she called them; I would've called them tweezers -- and tugged on the lens IN MY EYE AND PULLED IT OUT!! Yes, I thought it was pretty freaky and it felt kind of odd, but I guess if you get queasy easy over this stuff, then you probably shouldn't read this post.

Oops. Too late.
