With Rhonda from PV. Still pretty sick in the morning, seeming to spark up a bit as the day went on. At least not as tired. This all may be resolving itself in a day or so.

slept:5.0 weight:164.2lbs (sick)

Still feeling sick: general malaise, headache, sore throat, painful pressure in throat on bending over. So off to the urgent care. They think just a virus, although no coughing, discharge, no pain on swallowing. They don’t think it is related to eye drops. So I guess I just wait it out.

11 AM

slept:7.5 weight:163.4lbs

Still pretty punk, and I think maybe related to all the medications going into my eye. The first week a total of 16 applications a day of 6 different things. This week down to 12.

Went to see the cataract guy today, and he has dropped me down to 4 drops per day, 3 of prednisolone and 1 of prolensa. Anyway he thinks things are quite dandy. There is a small piece of the old cataract in there, which he thinks will get absorbed eventually. Pressure in the eye at 18, within normal bounds. Vision seems ok, and he says it should improve once the cyclopentolate wears off. That is a powerful eye dilator and will take a few days to clear my system.

Anyway, side effects I am dealing with, real or imaginary, are headache, fatigue, sore throat, somewhat upset stomach. Doesn’t seem like a cold.

With Rhonda, from PV. She was not inclined to take the microspikes out in the back yard.
7 PM

Gym (Yoga) 17 [3]

Most of the exercises, but 3 or 4 of them seem to put a lot of strain on my head and throat, so I am going to stop them for a while. Feeling a bit delicate.

Rowing Machine 9:15 [3] 2.0 km (4:38 / km)
slept:7.0 weight:163.6lbs

First time in a while. I’ve been waiting for the strain in my right forearm to calm down, which it seems to have, and then I have been on restricted activity since the eye surgery, so this is the first opportunity. Not pushing it.

Gym (Yoga) 16:00 [3]

Most of the exercises. Feeling a bit strange, and the bent over positions in particular caused me some pain in the throat and a bit of a headache. Strange feeling, maybe a side effect of all the eye drops.

Back from CA on the redeye. The estimable Zack picked us up, and took us straight to my follow-up visit with the eye surgeon in Manchester, pushed up in deference to the storm. That ended up taking a few hours, since all the afternoon guys were now coming in the morning, and we struggled home in the first few inches of snow. By the time we got home, around 1:15 I was pretty out of it. Hungry,tired, and eyes too dilated to focus. No reason and no energy to do anything but rest.
11 AM


Here is the eye report, after the follow up visit with the surgeon. He is satisfied with the progress of things. Pressure is 17, which is apparently just right. There remains one tiny piece of the old capsule material. He is not concerned about it and expects it to eventually get absorbed. The vision is 20/20 with the new lens, but still a bit blurry, and washed out as to color. He thinks that will all straighten out. He is not surprised that it remains irritated as there are 5 stitches in it. He said it can take 5 to 6 weeks for them to resolve. Right now I am on 5 kinds of eyedrops from 1 to 3 drops a day, depending on the drop. Next week I get to ditch 3 of them and go down to 2 and 1 times a day for those that remain, grading down until I am off them completely in another 3 weeks. The one that lasts the longest is a steroid, prednisolone. I also am on an ointment each evening, which I gather will persist for a while. I am more or less released to activity, although no swimming (not a big sacrifice for me) and generally being a bit guarded with what I undertake. So in general, pretty good. Thursday I go see the other surgeon, he who replaced the cataract, and see how happy he is with things.
8 PM

Gym (Yoga) 16 [3]

Most of my exercises. Holding off on the most inverted two for another several days or a week in deference to the recovering eye.
