Well, friends, surgeries are finally over. Now just time to recover. Surgery's went fine but we had some real issues with the anesthetic. My body didn't do so well with them and it has taken a little while to get them out of my system. Eyes are ok just have to put up with some perifial fluttering for a while till the new lenses that were implanted settle in. Still a little hard to work on computer but getting better everyday. Boys are good. Todd (firefighter) is home and safe from Houston. Said he had never heard wind like that in his life. But was excited that he was there to help. He rode the night that Ike came in at the reliance Center in Houston and it suffered some pretty bad damage but all of the people came out safe. Glad to have him home. Tracy called me after both surgeries and it was so good to hear his voice. He is doing ok but so tired. Says he can't wait to get home. He is telling me that he should be home sometime in NOVEMBER. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!. Thanksgiving will be a blast. That is all of the news so far. I want to thank all of my friends for their prays and well wishes for me and my boy. God bless you all and you will always be in my heart and prayers. Hugs to all of you. D.

That is wonderful news, all of it! I imagine this past year went by so slowly with Tracy over in the danger zone, but yay he's coming home! And now you'll be able to see him better than ever. I'm glad to hear the surgery went well. No surgery these days is compltely safe, so I'm glad it went well.

hi bluestarmom I am glad your surgeries all went so well, and dont feel bad, I always had some problems with the anestheia too, but you will overcome those. I had some back pain for awhile after my last surgery, they said it was from the gas they used, but it all went away. I am glad your son is getting to come home, that will make a great thanksgiving for you. goodluck and God Bless.

Thank you so much. Have had some issues with last eye done. Not clearing up quite like the other so may have to have some more work done on it. But the first eye done is totally awesome. So clear and crisp. Hope the other one will be the same soon.
