The Eye has it….

May 22, 2009 § 10 Comments


In Tonight’s Comic Adventure: Successfully recooperating from her cataracts surgery, Miss Waxie once again thinks on just how weird it is to have and old lady surgery at the tender age of 23 – even if they were caused by prednisone. Sure, the side effect was on the table when pred was brought up for the UCTD/ lupus/ rheumatoid arthritis deal, but getting cataracts so soon is like finishing only half of your box of Lucky Charms before finding the prize buried inside. …Well, gluten free Lucky Charms in Miss Waxie’s, book.

    i’m glad you said athletic cup and not me! hehe actually i was thinking of a colander. maybe they want you to rinse you eye off like they do fruit.

      …Now I have some creeptastic visual of me actually removing my eye and washing it off like you would a blueberry.

      Erin, how’d you manage to make me WANT an athletic cup taped to my face? 🙂

    I’m glad the first surgery went well!! 🙂 😀 😀 😀
    I’m so sick of being an old lady at 23, though at this point I don’t think I have eye issues, I’m on a med that can cause all sorts of them… I’m supposed to get eye exams every 6 months. :/

    • misswaxie says:

      Aaah plaquenil, I’m on that, too.

      I do hope you get those eye exams every six months! Though plaq doesn’t give you cataracts, it does cause glaucoma, which isn’t much fun either!!

    So glad the surgery went OK…hang in there!

    Best wished for a speedy recovery. BTW do you know the final ruling on Fruity Pebbles – are the gluten-free or not? (Ingredient list seems to be gluten free…)

  • WackyLisa says:

    I had my cataract taken out at 30. (I can’t remember.) Mine was congenital.
    Take care. I know my post surgery instructions seemed way too limiting but I really wish I’d done a better job sticking to them.
    I’m really glad the first one went well. I know I’m shocked when something medical goes okay for me.

    good to hear the first one went well, good luck with healing and the next stages…
