I should have remembered that in recovery mode, every other day seems good, the ones between, not so good. I had more pain because of the pressure of the lead patch against the bruised eye plus learning to put drops in my eyes. When I got the bandage off I look like I have just been in a boxing match and I was the loser. By late afternoon I was determined to try to sew something with the sewn triangles squares that I made before I had the procedure done. The blocks aren't pressed yet and I need to redo the center of the blue/green block. They are blocks 9 and 10 made from triangles cut from scraps with my studio die cutter.
Thanks everyone for your comments. You are keeping me going with your words of support. I won't be answering the comments while I have the patch over my eye and limited vision. I really appreciate the comments though.
I know you are all picturing a nice face fitting eye patch but here is the reality. It is 4" x 4.25" of lead covered with white tape and a stretchy head band attached. It either has to overlap my nose or bump into it with a sharp corner that keeps me from breathing out of that nostril. I am using an old pair of glasses that I don't mind getting stretched out to let my uncovered eye see where I'm going and the other side of the glasses are taped to this patch which keeps sagging because it is heavy. Like I say, it was not such a good day yesterday.
My dad is in the hospital with the early stages of pneumonia and of course I can't visit him with the radioactive disc in my eye. My brother said Dad wasn't eating much and weak and barely talking. He has popped back the last 2 times with pneumonia after antibiotics but he will be 99 next Monday so I'm not sure how he will do this time.
