Post-op follow-up #4

I had my fourth post-op appointment with Dr. Rotkis today. All continues to heal nicely. I'm down to only one eye-drop (the steroid) and dropping the other (the infection fighter).

In addition, he removed a couple of the stitches today. That was an experience. First, he applied the local anesthetic to the eyeball. Then he poked around with a tiny slicer thing. Then he went in with some little tweezers and began yanking. At least once I actually felt the little string pulling through the cornea. It only stung a bit, but the concept itself was sickening enough.

Ah, well. All is well and good on the road to recovery. Praise the Lord and thanks to good doctors.
