EASY AS 1,2,3
I settled myself in the waiting area and opened Anne Lamott's new book, "Imperfect Birds" and a nurse on her way to work, paused and asked, "Are you Jane?" Her mom, after reading this morning's early blog entry had quickly called her and told her to look for me. She was Mr. Bob's doctor's technical nurse........the one who hands him his instruments. I tell you, this blogging exercise is amazing.
Surprisingly soon, the doctor, who is camera shy, was assuring me that all went well. When I was called in to see Mr. Bob, he was drinking juice through a straw and wrestling open a little package of crackers. In no time he was up and dressed and in the regulation wheelchair that takes patients curbside.
Instructions were that the bandage (can you call a piece of tape a "bandage"?) comes off at dinnertime, no matter if we eat at 5 or 7 and we then start the healing eyedrops.
Down the road, when it's your time to have cataract surgery, fear not........it's a piece of cake!
