Day 16 After Surgery

I FEEL LIKE POPEYE: I don't smoke a pipe, but I do eat spinach - and I understand why Popeye must have kept one eye squinted. He must have also had a "vitrectomy" - the official name of my surgery.

Famous Popeye Quotes:

"I is disgustipated."

"Careful there, don't ruffle me feathers."

"Wrong is wrong, even when it helps ya." (Good quote to live by!)

"I yam what I yam."

"That's all I can stands, I can't stands no more!"

Me agrees with you Popeye! ~~ (I think he actually needed a good Speech-Language Pathologist for grammar and semantics!)

NO LAUGHING GAS!: The medical bracelet I have to wear says I can't have laughing gas for fear the gas bubble remaining might explode! Pretty thought, huh? Well, don't worry! No more dental work for me until this is way over! The bubble is shrinking, thank goodness. I can see a sliver of the world at the tip-top of my Evil Eye. The rest is a blur. I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, yippee!
