We have a date!
Not that kind of date. I have a date for my first surgery on my eyes. It’s June 20th at 10:30. This has been a long time coming. The distance between steps in the road to recovery has been long. It’ll be great to start the next chapter.
Telling people that I just had brain surgery sounds so daunting. Now I can just say that my latest surgery was on some muscle. That doesn’t sound right either. Maybe I’ll say eye surgery. But then they’ll look at me and say that I should get my money back. Who cares.
Just a reminder from my earlier posts, this surgery will allow my double vision to be on the same horizontal plane. In 3-4 months I’ll have another surgery to bring my forward-looking gaze on the same vertical plane. It’s a lot easier to explain if I can use my hands.
After that comes my frontalis (not lobotomy and not whiskey) sling. That’ll allow my right lid to open with the raise of my brow. I’m quite a science project and glad to be here.
