Eye surgery update, mind

Three days ago, two weeks after surgery, a breakthrough in eye surgery recovery.

Awoke with some semblance of images. Beyond simply discerning light from dark.

This is what i and Dr. Kumar hoped for.

Yesterday it was ever so slightly better than the first breakthrough day.

Today, slightly better than yesterday.

The mind is a versatile organ.

The mind has the power to convince us whatever we’re thinking is true.

Couldn’t help but briefly think Dr. Kumar was/is handling me because he doesn’t want me to panic.

From the beginning, he said two to three weeks before i could fly again.

Last night the gas bubble disappeared and i removed the green medical bracelet.

Positive mindset

Regularly stretching your growth mindset boundaries strengthens your mental resilience.

Going into this morning’s second (day-13 post op) follow up eye exam, i already know Dr. Kumar will tell me one of the obvious things i’m acutely aware of.

“There is a decent amount of blood still in your eye.”

What i don’t know is what other insight he will share.

And then there’s the chance weather could close the office today.

Bishops Cap is beyond me

From just the right angle, it’s easy to see how Bishops Cap got it’s name.

It’s only impossible until you do it the first time.

Going back to see Dr. Kumar tomorrow. Second followup exam since emergency Retina surgery nearly two weeks ago.

Patience is a virtue.

The human body is a miracle.

Still blind.

The gas bubble is almost gone though.

Here’s the challenge/opportunity…

If there was a guaranteed return to post surgery eyesight, patience has a designated purpose.

However, there isn’t a guarantee for any eye surgery (or any surgery).

The devil is tempting me to focus on the no guarantee part of the equation.

Perhaps it’s the anxiousness in still hoping to return to Glacier for a few weeks.

And so it goes, mentally

Plan on unexpected tests surprising and challenging you until you die. Plan on the same with blessings.

The gas bubble in my eyeball is half or just a little bit below half from the top. This is exactly what is supposed to happen.

However, the top half of my vision should be normal.

It is not.

It is blurry.

Cannot recognize my hand in front of me.

Why is this so?

Because there is blood in the eyeball.

There should not be but there is.

Now, we must wait for the body’s miraculous ability to remove the blood.

The best i can picture is a flesh wound that needs time to clear a scab.
