After a cornea surgery


I still have vivid memories of what went on after each of my cornea surgeries. Each transplant was a bit different from the next but the one thing that they all had in common were the feelings of hope and expectation.

The first cornea transplant will always be extra special in my mind and of course I will use the comparison of the old saying that tells us that the birth of a firstborn is always that bit more special. The first cornea transplant was the beginning of a new world for me. A brand new path to discovering and exploring. My whole world changed! My life changed and the big blue horizon became my limit. The sky was mine and I certainly reached for it.

I will say, however, that my expectations were based on a guarded hope for more vision and I was not disappointed. I was pleasantly surprised and accepted everything that was presented to me. I was on top of the world! I expected very little and gained plenty! After each cornea surgery I remembered to pray, hope, and accept whatever was to come my way. Ah, yes! Memories of after a cornea surgery.
