Eye have a long wait
25th May 2022
6:50am - Up early.... Ok, ok, I'm just awake, still under the duvet here. Got to get up though as I have got a hospital appointment this morning.
It is just a bit wet outside this morning. Let you know how I get on later (once i can see what I am typing!, it's an eye appointment)
9:45am - Just got to the hospital, corridor 7 here I come.... phone going on flight mode
1:50pm - Been home from the hospital since 11am, but only now seeing what I can type!
So, had the eye appointment, actually saw the one that would be doing the op, the main consultant surgeon.
Now I know 'what they' will be doing. Removing the eye gel and the blood from the eye, then doing laser zapping to sort out the floaters at the back of the eye, and then put a new lense in for distance.
The 'when they' is a long way off... September towards October, depending on the waiting list.
I just want it done, want to enjoy my life and the world again.
2:30pm - Feeling a tad depressed / cheesed off... all I want my enjoyment of life back... Damn it
I have to keep Mike Hedges MS, in the loop with the progression, as he is contacting the hospital to see if things can be moved along.
For those not up to date with Welsh Politics, Mike is a Welsh Labour politician, who been the Member of the Senedd (that's the MS bit at the end of his name) for the constituency of Swansea East (where I am living) since the 2011 Senedd election.
It was suggested by my local Labour councillor, Paul Lloyd, that I get in touch with him.
