Sold on Etsy

I just sold these booties from my Etsy store. I made them quite a while ago but just recently put them in my shop.

They will fit an infant or a large doll.

I had my cataract surgery

Hi everyone,I had my cataract surgery on Thursday and it was a wonderful experience. I can see blocks away and everything is so sharp and clear and the whites are white, I thought they were yellow. It is amazing what they can do. I had my follow up appt yesterday and the surgeon said I am healing fine. I do have to take three different drops four times a day. I don't have to wear my glasses any more, I have worn them since I was seven years old. I will need reading glasses though, and will get a pair tomorrow at Walmart. I am using my old ones right now for reading. I also did some knitting last night. I am so thrilled.

Yesterday, I even took the dogs for a walk. The hospital gave me dark wrap around glasses so the bright sun did not bother me.

Well tomorrow is the day for my surgery. I had all the pre-ops and pre-admissions completed. I found out two of the nurses I used to work with are now in the out patient surgery dept. and they will probably take care of me. I saw them yesterday when I was pre admitted and we reminised about old times working in the NICU nursery. All good memories.

I probably wont be posting here for a while until my eye is healed. Don't want to strain it any more than I have to.

Another Day , Another Blog

Nothing interesting went on today, just did some laundry, posted in my groups and took the dogs for a walk. Yesterday I had my pre-ops done for my cataract surgery. I will have the surgery on Thursday. I wish it was over already. I know it is nothing to worry about and being a former nurse, I know that is true. It is just the idea of someone digging around in my eye.
Wish me luck.

Today, my grandson Chris is 21 years old. He is a man but has been since he joined the US Army last July 2007. He is stationed in Alaska and will be deployed to Afghanistan in February. I am so proud of him. Unfortunately we will not see him on his birthday, but he will be on leave and visiting us next month for almost a month before deployment. Please say some prayers for him. I love him very much.
