  • Great news Farmer D. As I think I have told you before, I had both my cataracts done at the end of 2014 ( just under a month apart ) &, after wearing glasses for sixty two years, I am now able to drive without glasses at all - just wear reading glasses now which is fine by me. Had thought of applying for The Red Arrows but, as I'm seventy four today, think I've missed the boat on that one. πŸ˜‚ I'll be thinking of you on Thursday - let us know how you get on. Also good luck for May.πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€

  • A very happy Birthday to you Helen,I,d say the Red Arrows have missed out there.D. 🌺🌷🌸

  • A very happy belated birthday, Helen. I do hope you enjoyed your day.

    All the best

  • Thanks D. πŸ˜‚ I expect, like me you are stunned after the surgery & the results are almost immediate. Anyone hesitating about this surgery really shouldn't should they? It's a whole new way of life. πŸ‘€

  • Good luck for Thursday, Farmer D. It is wonderful to be able to see well again.


  • Hi FarmerD good luck with the Op on Thursday, the 9th of May will soon come round and after that you should be a new man so to speak :) :) My thoughts will be with you that all goes well, avoid those bugs till then and keep breathing well xx

  • Thank you Katie,I spoke to a community physio yesterday,she laughed when I told her I was looking forward to washing my hair without thinking I,m going to die.D.

  • No one realises the thoughts that go through our heads when we have these life changing illnesses. I struggle to wash my hair so I visit the hairdressers, but when i get worse I guess I may have to change to a mobile hairdresser coming to the house. Enjoy your day it's been dry and sunny here but bitterly cold, I lost my voice it was so cold. But at least we are here to enjoy the weather and talk about it..........

  • Hell D, nice to hear from you and with good news too!

    All the best for the second eye and the RB too. By May that sun will be out for you xx

    ps I'm a tiger!

  • Hi Tiger,yes It,s good they think about the weather and recovery,thanks.D

  • Good luck with both dates Farmer
