Hooray! Cataract surgery has been reestablished for this Thursday, December 17th.....
It is outpatient surgery. The hospital for reasons I don't know had bumped me into January and December 31st as things currently stand my health insurance is no more. I think that at some future point in some number of months I will have insurance reestablished but how long that will take is unknown and I am a bit of a danger driving my vehicle without a working left eye. The social worker who has been very kind to me over the years, she works at the hospital, took on this challenge, got a ombudsman department involved and I'm back on schedule for Thursday! Woohoo!
It is scheduled to be a 30 minute procedure, I'll take the bus to the hospital, they will only release me if someone drives me away so the social worker has a driver who will do so. I expect to be back at the shelter late afternoon. It is expected to be painless. I'll have a patch on until the next day when I return to the hospital and they remove the patch and inspect things I'm sure. And from then on they expect that I have a working left eye again. Woohoo! I am supposed to take it easy then for a couple of weeks as I recall but I don't think that means that I really need to curtail my normal activities very a much. And, things will slow down the last half of this month anyway because everyone will be out of town.
