First of all, thanks to everyone for their comments. I have read them all, but just haven't responded since I'm not sure what I can say other than, "Thank you!"
This second operation seems to have drained me more than the first. I think perhaps because I wasn't 100% recovered from the last one. That combined with the fact my hands ended up a bit of a mess from their "attempts" at finding a good vein will explain why it's taken me longer this time to get back on the blogs properly.
Monday afternoon I'll be seeing my specialist, but I don't know if he'll be able to tell this soon whether this has worked or not. I mean, it looked like things were going well last time, after all.
All I know right now is that it's still feeling kinda sore from the op, but that Mam and Kelly say that the bruises are healing up nicely. Also, the "gunk" that is coming from it is a very small amount, and Mam and Kelly say it's still the clear stuff you get from healing wounds - if you know what I mean - so at least it doesn't appear to have any sort of infection in it.
I had to go for a blood test today to check my iron level to see if the doctors feel I should stay on my iron tablets. As if I wasn't having enough needles in me right now! Funny thing is that - since they did the test with me on the tablets - I don't know how they expect to get a proper idea of whether or not I still need the tablets. I know what's going to happen, because it's happened before. They'll say I don't need the tablets, so they'll stop them. Then they'll do a full blood count test for some reason and discover that I'm very anemic and ask why I'm not on iron tablets. LOL! I don't mind in a way though. Since I'm eating more veg and stuff now I should be able to keep my iron level up to a decent level. And if I don't have to have the tablets then - once all this with my eye is over - it'll only be my inhalers that I need to have on prescription regularly, and it would be nice to be free from all the drops, eye ointments and tablets.
I've watched a few movies over the past week or so. The first one I might have already mentioned, but I can't remember. Anyway, the movies are:
"Racing Stripes" - About a Zebra who thinks he's a horse and dreams of being a race horse. Mam, Dad, Kelly and I watched it together... It was really good!
"The Water Horse" - Mentioned recently, but watched again with my Mam and Dad last Friday.
"Driving Lessons" - I know I mentioned this one recently too... The low budget movie starring Rupert Grint. I watched it with my Mam on Saturday... Or was it Friday night? *Shrugs* I dunno! It was one or the other.
"Thunderpants" - Also mentioned recently, and also starring Rupert Grint. But, again watched with Mam on Saturday (definately Saturday for this one).
"Serendipity" - A movie about a man and a woman who meet accidentally and fall in love, but both have partners and aren't sure if they should trust their feelings. So they decide to leave it up to fate to decide. It was a really good movie. Mam and I both enjoyed it.
"Open Season" - An animated movie about a tame bear who's living in the lap of luxury until a moose comes in to his life and he ends up being released back in to the wild three days before hunting season begins. It's a VERY funny movie.
"The Clan Of The Cave Bear" - I know I've seen it before, but not sure if I mentioned it on here. It's based on the first book in Jean M Auel's "Earth's Children" series of books about "Ayla" who's orphaned by an earthquake when she's five years old and taken in by the medicine woman of "The Clan." It's an old movie, but a good one. Wayne wanted to watch it today, which was how I ended up watching it today.
I did start watching an animated movie called "The Batman And Superman Movie" with Kelly and Wayne this afternoon, but I was very tired so went for a nap rather than watch the rest of the movie. The DVD is Kelly's anyway, so I can watch it any time I want.
A few weeks ago I "finally" got around to getting the Harry Potter audio book I was missing from the set. I had them all as print books, but hadn't done much towards getting them on audio until last year. Well, they aren't cheap, so it took me a while to be able to justify paying out that much money on just one item. The one I was missing was book six... "Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince"... And it cost me £40 (that's about US$60 ish). And that was the cheapest I was able to find it (a lot of places wanted £65).
I listened to it pretty much right away. I actually only finished listening to it the night before I went in to hospital. There's a lot of disks in those Harry Potter books. Especially the last few books!
I don't think I need to tell you I enjoyed it... If I do then you're obviously new to my blog and don't know me very well yet. LOL!
When I've finished listening to and reading the books I've got waiting for me to listen to or read I'm going to have a Potter-a-thon and listen to all seven books... One after the other! That's not going to be until some time next year though. LOL!
Wayne and Kelly took Kero for his yearly check-up and booster shot today. I wasn't feeling up to going. Partly from being tired still from the op anyway and partly because I didn't feel like it after going to the doctor earlier.
Kero got a clean bill of health, so that's good. :)
I think that covers everything.
*Sending thoughts and prayers to those in need of them*
