Eye Surgery Recovery

I’m back, though a long way from being at my best. The surgery on both of my eyes, for a condition called Lower Lid Ectropion OU, took place on Monday, June 6. One eye will be completely covered with bandages until June 23. The other, though damaged, is usable. Turns out I can type and read the results with one eye—awkward and irritating but doable. Under these conditions, writing is a slow and exasperating exercise, but it was what I was born to do. So how can I complain?

I ask my readers’ patience as I struggle. I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to do or how fast. Bear with me. I’ll be back in full force one of these days, probably before the end of the month.

  1. Been prayin’ for you Tom..You are right.. one eye is better than nothing !! Hang in there, bigger blessings are coming . This is just a speed bump in the road. Have missed your daily writings. Get well soon…


  2. I check you every day either on facebook or via email subscription. Your posts are a good start on the day and I miss it when you are not there.
    Does your computer have a voice to text method? I’ve never tried that and suspect it might be less than perfect, but it might help.


  3. Thanks for the kind words, Dale. No, I don’t have a voice-to-text system. It’s okay. The typing is slow and subject to many errors, but it eventually works.
