Tiamat Update

Hello Everyone!

The surgery went well according to the doctor.

Now it’s just a waiting game to see how the eye heals.

Unfortunately, the wait is going to be very uncomfortable for Tiamat, and as a result, for Husbandji as well.

Because, as a result of what the doctors did to fix her eye, she needs to maintain an even pressure in it while it heals. And in order to do so, she must keep her head in a downwards horizontal position for approx. 50 minutes out of each and every hour for the next WEEK!

So in order to help her achieve this, she is being lent a chair and a table similar to what you would use for a massage, where your face fits through a hole.

Which limits her to what she can do for herself to practically nothing.

So Husbandji will be playing Nurse Ratched for the better part of the next seven days, including staying overnight, which means that I will probably not see my spouse in person until this Saturday!

Say a prayer for all of us, my minions….

    Oh, I hope Husbandji has a lot of “strength” pills to see him through!
    The recovery sounds a lot like “ancient” cataract surgery. In the early 70’s the mother of friends had such surgery and she had to lay still for weeks with her head between sandbags to keep it from moving.

    Of course, dear! Your sanity is always top priority. Your beatification draws ever closer.

    TigerYogiji replies: Oh, you do go on! I would be happy with the designation of simple Celestial Bodhisattva-hood! 😉

    that sounds promising. I do hope everybody survives the ordeal in the waiting.
