    Hi Bruce! I’m still chuckling over my first chat session! :) I’m glad I could finally connect with you and the others. Sorry I missed Rachel! By the way, the Vikings finally won in overtime 16-13. It’s been embarrassing to watch them play lately, but I’m a Minnesotan at heart!

    Just curious – is the surgery for strabismus similar to the extraocular muscle surgery I had for double vision. If so, I did not have to wear bandages after surgery, but the stitches on my eye really bothered me when I blinked. Actually, I hated this surgery more than the decompression! Go figure. . .

    Best of luck with your surgery! I’ll be thinking of you!

    That’s what I’m having, the surgery for double vision. Great to hear that I won’t have to be blind after the surgery. Not so great to hear that the stitches can bother! Actually I think he warned me about that.

    Was a nice chat with you and Jake. Hope to do it again soon!

    Hi again, Bruce! So, I wasn’t quite sure what strabismus was – thought it was double vision, but my dictionary said something about being cross-eyed. I suppose you’d have double vision if you were cross-eyed?!?

    It was a quick, easy one day procedure that automatically fixed the double vision for me. I hated those stitches though! Maybe yours won’t be as bothersome.

    Take Care, Debby

    P.S. Green Bay is losing on Monday Night Football – so how about those Vikes!! :)

    Having strabismus surgery on thursday. Really looking foward to getting it done and having my eyes straight again.

    Jake, do they bandage your eyes after the surgery? I forgot to ask but somehow got the impression that they don’t.

    Jeesh, a football freak obviously!

    Thanks for the info and wishes, Debby. Got a email from Jake a bit ago and he said his stitches didn’t bother much, so we’ll see. Maybe can get some morphine or something :) (child of the 60’s you know)

    Hope to catch you on the chat soon! (Sunday?)
