I had the second surgery done on my right eye, this time I didn't get a bracelet but a band around my ankle with which I looked like a prisoner. My shoes were of exceptional elegance.
A nurse wheeled me in the operating room and then it was as a week before, except this time my doctor probably thinking that I had strong nerves explained everything he did to a student who watched my eye on a screen. So I heard "Now I will cut it into four pieces, and then vacuum otherwise the pieces would be too big. (I imagined a tiny little vacuum cleaner in my eye) then he said he will take a tweezer and take out the rest. I was waiting for a brush, but there was none. When it was finished I asked the student if at least he had learned something, because now I can do my cataracte surgeries myself, but he only gave me a half asleep smile, I think he slept during the whole procedure.
Now I have troubles with my glasses, they are too strong, but I have to wait 2 weeks until he can prescribe me new once. Meanwhile the old once will do. At least I can drive and watch TV.
I rested the whole afternoon the next day and then Monique picked me up for our theatre play which I didn't want to miss.
It's offered by our city for the seniors (after 65) and only costs 4 € (4,73 $) and always full. The plays are excellent and always very funny, here we had to deal with a noble family, a cardinal brother and an illegal child ! Nice mixture !
After the play we discovered a bar which exists since ages in Waterloo, but none of us three had ever noticed it, apparently there are mostly vintage ladies there and even a Chippendale show on weekends !
Sunday we had the visit of Mr. G's friend and we had a nice afternoon.
Of course Arthur and Rosie participated in the conversation, they love company. As our garden needs a cut especially the ivy, our friend proposed to cut it for us. He has the same age as our son. Otherwise I had to look for a new gardener, because the one we had since years retired now, and the new one I had found, thought I was Lady Chatterly and was not only interested in cutting our ivy.
That's at least another worry less. I have to keep a bit calm with my freshly operated eyes, am not allowed to carry heavy things to bent or to dust ! The latter certainly won't happen !
