Mackenzie had her pre-op appt. today

  • A little more testing and measurements. The spiel about how they do, the risks, the after care.  Then we had to go to something called the pre-op exam clinic. I have no idea what the point of that was, other then to raise my blood pressure.  They didn't do anything but (poorly) go over the paperwork. (You know the patient and insurance info. lol)  And not the doctor's paperwork. Just the stuff that I filled out.  And because they didn't read the doctor's work they kept arguing with us that she wasn't getting full anesthesia. Umm, yes she is. The doctor just told us. No. Yes. No. Yes.  So the idiot lt. commander thought she'd be smart and threaten me with calling the doctor to find out that we were wrong.  Yes whore, lets call I've got his private cell phone # right here in my phone.  I think she knew she was wrong at that point.  But it was nice to watch the doctor tell her that and suggest that she reads his notes.  Bwaaaaaa haaaaa haaaaa.

    Mackenzie is still freaking but the doctor did make her happy by telling her that she know longer had to wear sunglasses outside. lol (The optometrist was the one who originally told her that.)  He said since her cataract was caused by the diabetes that the UV rays weren't really the issue for her.  She was crazy happy about it.  Of all things.  I like sunglasses and we bought her lost of cool ones. Kids.

  • I'm so glad they're doing full anesthesia for her... I was an adult and it was freaky for me.

    Don't tell her this, but they may have to put a stitch in her eye... it's a horrible obnoxious feeling.  Keep it lubricated, it's the only thing that helps that constant feeling of something in your eye.

    After surgery...keep her out of bright light... I thought I felt good enough to hit the px complex near Landstuhl (it was the big shopping place for us)... going into the Swarovski crystal store to check a price for my mom was the worst decision ever.

    Are they using a multi focal lens?

    Oh and most important  <hug>

    lol Well the surgeon did tell Mackenzie that there are no stupid questions, only stupid people.  He's probably met that commander. lol
