eye surgery

I had my eye surgery a couple weeks ago, and all went well. It was also declared a fortuitous choice to not wait on the surgery, as we were able to prevent a detachment of the "worst kind". Not sure I want to know what that means, just thankful I answered the little nudge I kept receiving to move ahead with calling about the problem in the first place and the decision to not wait any longer on the surgery.
Recovery is not just about healing the surgery sight and all that went on in there, but is impacted by the random amount of time it will take for the gas bubble to disappear. It looks like it will be in the3-5 week time frame before I can see to return to work, drive??, read for more than a few minutes with one eye. It's all up in the air, but things are healing nicely and I am settling into being alone all day. Cocoa keeps me company.
Thank you to all who have provided support and love.
