I want to take a minute to thank my quilting friends who kept me in their thoughts and prayers while Clay and I did double duty on Cataract surgery! Clay has completed his and doing fine, and today I went for my post operative checkup on my left eye and am off restrictions, have 20/20 vision for Distance, and pressure at 14 – and the eyes are healing fast, all of which Dr Young says is excellent!
I am so glad that we did this, but we are so worn out from all the surgeries (4 weeks in a row) and office visits for post operative checkups. Clay will go next Monday for his 3 week and final check up and I will go back on 4 Nov for my final and then will be able to get my glasses ordered for my close up, mid-range, and astigmatism! We are so blessed. As you all know I had HIGH anxiety before my surgeries. The surgery is nothing, but because I am claustrophobic it caused me to be so stressed. I am happy to say that the 2nd surgery went so smoothly! All worked out great! In the meantime, I will use the peep over glasses to sew and read! YEA!
I have been trying to sew a little each day but because of the astigmatism in my left eye, it does start to bother me (eye strain) if I do too much, so I have been slowly trying to get back into the swing of my life. I started walking Friday and today I had a great walk – I did my usual 20 minute mile and did a total of 30 minutes and a mile and a half. And my lungs did not bother me today! I am happy!
Now to be able to lose the 5 pounds that somehow came back – I guess there is something to say about stress – it raises the Cortisol levels and that did not help me with trying to maintain the weight I had lost (without my walking for 2 weeks) and I have no idea about the Glucose and furthermore not going to worry about it. I am working on increasing my protein and limiting any carbohydrates. Getting back to my strict routine will eliminate any of those problems.
Next post will only be on my quilting projects, I promise! We have 6 whole days to stay home and away from San Antonio! Staying home is Happiness!
Have a great week, and hopefully I will have made some progress on Mary Brown and Alexander Bean Pot blocks!
