I seriously can't believe that I had to have a re-take surgery last week. At my post-op appointment, my doctor said that my shunt was still moving after the first surgery, so I needed to go under again. I felt like I was being buried under a ton of rocks, and didn't know how I could deal with another almost 3 hour surgery. I got through it, because I knew it was the only option, and I just pretended that the previous day had never happened. It also helped that the anesthesia hadn't quite worn off from the day before, because it made me feel tired, and I was more willing to accept another surgery.
I was very glad when the 2nd surgery was over. The tornado warning right after my surgery signified the end of my bad luck, so I got to relax in the recovery room a little while longer, before heading back to our hotel in the torrential rain. My parents wouldn't let me eat breakfast the next morning, just in case I needed yet another surgery 😉 . But thankfully the 2nd surgery worked. I would have been crazy mad if I had needed yet another surgery!
The goal of my blog is to increase awareness of childhood glaucoma and other eye diseases, and to unite kids like me living with visual impairment.
