Pirate Eye Patches and a nice nap

I have my eye surgery this morning, which I'm sort of looking forward to (no more leaky eye! good drugs! naps!) and sort of not (they should NEVER tell you at the pre-op surgical consult exactly what they're gonna do...it's too weird and icky, and I nearly lost my lunch).

I'm sitting in the bedroom with my shirt undone, no makeup, nothing to eat or drink since midnight, the cat howling at me, and the sun reflecting mustard gold on the turning leaves. Every once in a while I'll look up into the trees in the backyard, from my little office vantage-point, and see a leaf careen down through the branches, too tired to hold on any more, committing autumn leaf-i-cide. It's very pretty, and relaxing. Which I need.

Sort of freaking out a little. Yeah, I'm a big pussy-baby, I have no problem being puked on by my kids or seeing my husband's fresh surgery scar, or heck, I even loves me some Discovery Channel surgery shows. But when it comes to me being sick, yeah, I basically want my mommy. Pffft....

Have a good weekend, y'all!

good luck, Mona! I had eye surgery myself (not the same kind, but hey - an eye is an eye) and I am hoping your recovery is swift and painless.

Go dry your eye. And after when you're pirating around your house, I'm wishing you much quiet, relaxation and many hands to deservedly wait on you.

Hell's bells, I turn my back on you for two shakes and you both are having surgery. I can't take you ANYWHERE.

Hope everything went perfectly OK.

I had eye surgery...when I was a year old. My grandma gave me a teddy bear for the occasion, and it's the only toy from my childhood that I still have. I hope you've been nurtured and coddled since your surgery. You've earned it with all the nurturing you do—milk it for all it's worth!

Big congratulations on the successful surgical procedure. You are much braver than Eye. (I suck at this, yes?)

Happy Halloweenie!!!
