Well I’m back after having a procedure done that I should have had done a year ago. But after realizing exactly what they were going to do to meI politely declined and decided to wait. Wait for what I’m not sure, for it to miraculously get better and heal itself!?…. Probably.Who the hell made that up anyway? But I reluctantly made the appointment and had it done. And this is what it looks like now!

My poor little eye

 

Not very appealing but they say in three months I can have the stent taken out and hopefully I will be as good as new. The word hopefully being the operable word here. This is only the second time in my life I have had surgery or be put under completely and boy did they make a big deal about it. I think I was more afraid of the anesthesia and what could happen, than I was of the doctor and the needle in my eye!

But on a positive note I have to say that I had some of the best care that I have ever had in a hospital setting, and it wasn’t even a hospital! It was a part of the hospital that outpatient surgery is performed. All the way from the pre-op nurses … the anesthesiologist… My doctor and my post-op nurses, I was treated incredibly special.

They were some of the finest caregivers I have ever been around. And I have been in the hospital more times than I care to remember. They were kind and gentle care and understood how very nervous I was. It went very smoothly, thank goodness.

I am so grateful for the humans in this world who take their job of caring for others… strangers even, and they do it with love and compassion. They are to be honored and recognized for who they are. A beacon of love and light from the Divine and they let us know how special we really are.

So here is a big Thank You to Dr. Burroughs and the nurses and staff at Audubon ASC at St. Francis in Colorado Springs. They are truly the example of what real health care should look like everywhere. I will not be quite so afraid next time…..if there is a next time.

Blessings To All
