My surgery has come and gone. It has been a week and still there is a little bit of pain and slight complications. Those should clear up in the next month or so. Till then I need to stay positive and roll with the punches. It is a little frustrating that the fantastic vision (20/40, almost 20/30) I had in the operated eye is now all blurry (mostly the very central vision lol and that is where almost all my vision is due to optic nerve damage ;;sigh;;) due to what my Dr. thinks is swelling in the macula This is not an uncommon side effect of eye surgery, but frustrating and confusing at first. There is a stitch in my eye causing some irritation and a wee bit of pain, but that is slowly starting to subside and only affects me for a few hours in the morning. Here is a picture of my eye one week after surgery (yesterday) and a funny picture of me with the eye patch I have to wear at night.
So I have been keeping myself busy with some simple knitting. I yarn bombed my bus stop for a challenge in Nerd Wars for Team TARDIS.
I also finished my (rav link to my project page for )Chop Suey, the galactic emperor! Not Socks. These were a fun and easy knit. I didn’t use all of the hank of sock yarn, but I haven’t had a chance to actually weigh the left over ball yet. I used Whimzy Pinzy Creations hand-dyed panda cotton in the Slytherin colourway that I received from HSKS ( I think round 9) swap pal Guinifer LeFleur. Thank you again I lurve it) I started this pattern a few days before my surgery to help calm me down with some simple knitting and finished the rest while recovering slowly. Good thing this pattern is well written and simple; otherwise I won’t have been able to pull off finishing them this week. These fingerless gloves are awesome and keep my whole arm warm while reading, I highly recommend this pattern.
