The surgeon said the surgery went well, and I’m now home with a heavily patched eye, glasses sitting on the end of my nose (see “heavily patched eye”) , still obviously affected by the anesthesia drugs…but wanted to thank you all again for your good wishes & prayers, and assure you that I’m doing well. Actual results await the unveiling tomorrow of the operated eye and its gradual return to what will be its normal vision from now on. But the basic health stuff–I’ve had water and food, and other bodily functions are proceeding according to plan. There are details that might be interesting (seen from within, part of the procedure appeared to produce visuals rather like the APOD pictures from the Hubble and other big telescopes–like being in or near one of the nebulas photographed in false-color, with some shape emitting little lightning flashes in electric blue-white. Space battles? Or was I that drunk on the anesthesia?)
Tired, needing to go back to sleep, but wanted to alleviate anxiety. More later.
