Reading and Recovering

1490981717551.jpg

Good Morning! Home from the hospital and snuggled up with a lot of books!

The surgery on Monday was a Scleral Fixation of a Four-Haptic Intraocular Lens Using Gore-Tex Suture. Which basically means since the usual way wasn’t an option for me, they made tiny incisions in the white part and threaded a basket with a lens in it. Yep it is gross. It looks gross. But I now have a lens. For two years now I have not. Just procedure after procedure. All from a bad contact lens. Fresh out of the box.

Dr. Davis said I look great for 24 hours out of surgery. I’m still not over the anesthesia. That was bad. My throat is still sore from the intubation tube and I threw up for a straight 24 hours, but I think my head has cleared and now we shall go back to 4 different drops every 4 hours.

So I’m reading rather slowly. The good thing is the postman brought books!!

I’m taking this week to recover but will be checking in on you all!

HELLO SPRING, We’ve Been Waiting For You!

1490030630636

It is definitely Spring here. My favorite color of green is Spring Green. That green that pops out on trees promising leaves and flowers. Daffy Dillies are springing up on everyone’s lawn and there is just a newness to everything.

Spring Break is almost over. (Choir of angels sings) There are so many great books coming out this Spring. Some new authors I’ve found and some old favorites so today we are going to laze in the sun and read. And not Run,Spot,Run.

The tiny terrorists are in the living room whispering so I only have a few minutes before all out war erupts over the chalk!

Y’all have a really good day and take some time to notice Spring!

The Books Just Keep On Coming!

You never really reach the end of your TBR pile, do you? Just when I think I have a handle on it and don’t need a spreadsheet, Boom, more books. Oh well if I have to keep getting something I guess books are the way to go!

I have read four books in two days all in the same genre so I’m grabbing this cozy mystery to slow things down a bit.

Murder on the Rocks (A Red Carpet Catering Mystery #5)   I personally have never read this author before so I’m excited to see what happens. This is the fifth in the series. Let me know if you’ve read this author!

Early morning eye appointment went well. My doctor made it safely home from Korea. More and more I am realizing this is a journey. It’s been a year since the corneal transplant and I still have a couple of surgeries to go so my  goal is to be patient. Never has that word been used in the same sentence with my name. This may be the longest relationship I’ve ever had with a man!

It is still bone chillingly cold so it’s a hot cup of tea, a book and a bath!
