A Little Work–But Not Much!

Postage Stamp Quilt

Yesterday was a busy day out of the house. I have had a little complication from the cataract surgery and had to see my eye doctor yesterday.  About 1 in 5 people get a gray film grown on the back of the new lens and yes that “1” was me – so back to the eye doctor for another procedure with the laser and need to go back at the end of next week to get checked out again.   A new eye drop to use for 3 months this time twice a day – I’m getting mighty darn tired of having eye trouble!   Sure hope this procedure has taken care of the problem and that it won’t have to be repeated – I should be able to see better over the next couple of days he says – we will see.

Before the appointment I was able to get a little of the wool applique done – but not much but it is a start right.  Embellishing will be done later – the flower on the left is appliqued but not embellished  and some of the blue flower next to it.


And that is it for today’s post – maybe more later but as I wrote this last night my eyes were still dilated and I was having some trouble seeing so no other work got done.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    So sorry you had that complication but I am glad there is a fix for it and maybe after this round of eye drops you can be done 🙂

      thanks for stopping by Belarmina – I can see pretty good today but I can tell I might need one more laser treatment

    Usually this is a one time thing. Had both of mine done too. Now if I could get as much done with 2 good eyes as you do with problems I would be very happy. Have a good day Karen.

      you had to have the cataract surgery too and had the same problem? I still see a little gray today I hope it goes away soon

    I don’t know if I could stitch at all if I was having eye problems. Glad to hear that you are doing better.

      it wasn’t bad enough to bother me sewing, it was more when I was reading – I think because my left eye is ok I was able to do things alright – early stages also – caught it very early – might have to have one more treatment though

    How did you know you had the grey film. I have had the cateract surgery as well. My eyes just itch all the time. Like I have sand in them. I seem to see fine though.
    thank you, Mary

      I just wasn’t seeing right and when I covered up the eye that I did not have surgery on to check I was seeing gray areas in my vision – I did this by looking at a book – some of the words were completely covered in a gray cloud is the best way to describe it – they did not itch
