1 day Pre-Graft

3 Jul

So, it’s 1 day before the op and I’ve just heard that everything is definitely going ahead tomorrow and the hospital have had confirmation of the cornea.  I’m keeping myself busy today walking Magnus and sorting out the house so everything’s nice when I get home on Thursday.  I didn’t sleep well last night as I think I am maybe a little more nervous than I am letting on! 

A few little things that I’ve been thinking about:

1.  I hate sleeping on my back, but while I’m recovering ‘Im going to have to as you can’t sleep on your front or side and there’ll be some time having to sleep with the “protective eye shield”.  I’ll post pictures once I get it but I’m not sure it will be the best nights of sleep, although I’m sure I’ll get used to it 😉

2.  Magnus – our beautiful Boxer puppy.  He’s just over 4 months old, very bouncy and likes to lick me on the face a lot.  I guess that this will have to stop for the time being – I will have to try and brief Magnus before tomorrow that my face is off limits for a while…should be interesting given his lack of obedience! 

3.  The eye patch – I know this might seem ridiculous but earlier I was wondering whether or not there is a market for luxury/designer type eye patches, rather than what I guess would be a standard black patch.  After a quick google I found out that there is definitely a market for this, in fact you can even buy a Swarovski Crystal Eye patch (link is here) for a bit of bling post surgery!!  I won’t be getting one but it did make me laugh as I do like a but of sparkle and everyone would certainly see me coming in this!

Tomorrow I’ll be heading in to London on the train at 3pm, ready to arrive at the hospital at 4:30pm.

Anyway enough from me for now, until tomorrow!
