My Post Op Technicolor World

My technicolor world has returned.  This world is a beautiful place.  

♥ Thank you for the support, healing thoughts, and prayers. 
You touched my heart and helped me so very much! 

There were a few hiccups pre, during, and after surgery.  but the vision is now like night and day.  It was triple image, now it's down to double vision, and I hope it will soon be good old normal single vision.  

I return for another post op visit later this week, and am hoping that my eye will heal nicely.  The dr was pleased the day after surgery, but I still couldn't see very much then, so as time passes, there should be more improvement.  If the eye improves I won't need the second surgery, at least not right now.

Uveitis is a wild one, sneaks in, wreaks havoc, is not law abiding, and doesn't care who it hurts.   There is a very good website about uveitis, it was started by parents whose daughter has the disease.  Olivia's Vision  is a UK based group and it has a lot of helpful info.

I haven't found an active group for uveitis in the US, it's probably out there, I just haven't come across it while searching the web.    Driving back to the hospital on the day after surgery, I thought  it would be great to start up such a group for the US.  Need to come up with a good slogan/name.  Suggestions?  
Soon I will be visiting your blogs and replying to comments and emails. In the meantime I hope you all have a fabulous holiday this week.  We have snow on the ground, it's mighty cold, in the teens, with more snow on the way.    Enjoy this song, it tells you how I'm feeling right now...

Hi Gloria, I am so happy to hear the surgery went well! I hope you have a recovery leading to single vision again. What a wonderful idea coming up with a support group in the US. It would really help others struggling uveitis.
Take care, Val
