I do have several column ideas, but I don't need to submit my next one for three weeks, so that gives me time to really ponder the possibilities. If the readers like the first two, that is. I may be done after those two!

Do you have a little stock pille of column ideas already? Often the medical provider will make an "insurance adjustment" based on what they get from the insurance so it may be lower than $500 - hope so.

Hi. Supposed to be twice per month (my column) but we're doing one week apart at the start and then transitioning to every other Monday. So nice that I'll get to use a Becky photo! The insurance, as far as we know, covers all but $500 per eye, thankfully. We'll see when we get the actual final bill.

Catching up is always interesting. A few people got lots of multiple FPs No he didn't unless it is in his last message - very cool! WIll be excited to read it. I take it your insurance doesn't cover the procedure :( How is the eye doing? has it warmed up yet?

Hey, Sly -- did BD tell you that one of his photos of Becky is going to be featured in my first Tails Mag. column?

Pat's had his other eye done already, but I need to have my right eye taken care of when we can afford it. And I am dressed in two layers below the waist and four above. We spend all evening tucked into bed with the dog and at least one cat. Very cozy. I've got two space heaters in my office, but still my fingers freeze. I'll be glad to see spring! Looking at the ten-day forecast is utterly depressing! Gah!

So good to hear! You will get used to not wearing glasses. As long as you didn't feel anything. I think I would want to be zonked out :) Do you both need the other eye done too or not? Oh I know - the whole East Coast is in the Ice Age right now and the West having unseasonably warm temps and in drought state. We need snow despearately for summer irrigation and to prevent another bad wildfire season :( It's like soeone drew a vertical line down the US and said - hot left; cold right :) No way you can heat that place adequately in this kind of weather - stay calm and wear flannel jammies :)

Hi. It went okay. I asked for light anesthesia, but they didn't give me enough at first and had to give me more. I was aware during the whole thing, but relaxed. I don't think they knew I was awake. Pat was zonkered through the whole surgery. He was much more groggy on the way home, so maybe having less anesthesia wasn't a bad idea. The driver that gave us door-to-door service was very nice. Everyone was. We went back to the surgeon's office yesterday. Pat has more swelling and I have some vision symptoms, but we both are doing great, he said. I'm still seeing the edge of the implant and my eye is pulsating, but he said that's normal and should go away after a week, max. He told me to stop wearing my glasses now. The fixed eye will take over for the weaker one. I'm trying not to wear them, but old habits die hard! Thought of a topic for my first Tails Mag. post this morning. I'll write it as soon as I have time. I hope. How tricks with you? We are freakin freezing here! Single digit temps with below-zero wind chills. The building is at 56 in the warmest room. The furnace just can't compete with the cold. Some rooms are down around 20. Brr!

Sylvia! Holy moley! I got offered and accepted my own regular humor column in Tails Magazine! Twice per month. Zowie! Hope I can do a good job for animals!


By Sylviag on Feb 16, 2015 at 5:27 AM

If I rememer riht, they will pick you both up and take you home. Millions of these procedures have been done so try not to worry - easy to say I know :) All good here, busy with family stuff and we've started volunteering at a no kills shelter a couple times a week. Something we've wanted to do for a long time


By jennybookseller on Feb 15, 2015 at 9:38 PM

Thanks, Syl! How's tricks? Getting a bit nervous about cataract surgery on Wednesday. I figure if I can handle shingles, tho . . .

Thanks! ED the shingles are gone - Yay! Hope they stay away. Do you have any places in mind for your MIL? Are you looking at a memory care facility for her? Unfortunately they are very costly. I totally agree on not aging Kris by much. He's such a charming young man.

Thanks and conga ratz to you again!
