I had the corneal transplanat Wednesday morning, have followed instructions diligently, and in yesterday's followup appointment, doctors said they were pleased with the progress. It won't be an overnight recovery, but I expected that. Thankfully, I haven't had any pain to speak of, and hope that I will gradually get my eyesight back to optimal (pardon the pun) condition.
I an thrilled to see a few entries put up at "Carole & Co." during my absence, and hope you people can keep it going. Don't worry about whether it's new material or not -- the important thing is that you contribute.
Again, thanks for your support and encouragement. It is truly appreciated.
