I woke up blind in one eye this morning

I phoned the hospital today! " Volle Narkose?  Are you sure I'll wake up again."

" Yes, I'm sure."

" Ok, I have a private room. I want great coffee."

She: " not sure about that."

😂

I can hardly see out of my right eye since this morning... a film floating around when I close my left eye... got eyedrops (Optofresh) but paranoid... no pain but can't see. Can someone please reassure me before I go to a doctor tomorrow? Do whatever you want, swear, curse, joke, anything... :(

 

Ach mein Gott!...   masturbation at your age? johnny Geewiz?

Quite nice in my room at Barmbek Hospital today. Sun shining through. Lunch taken. They just brought me apple pie and coffee as well!

 

Luis from Colombia is my menu guy! 

Dunno what use that admittedly large TV on the  wall is- this is the Augenabteilung and they have checked both my eyes today and no way can I watch telly!

 

Am on the fourth floor. Haven't spotted the morgue here yet on my walk around the corridors to stave off boredom.

 

I think I have managed to persuade them I don't want the Vollnarkose tomorrow. " Herr Gunn, can you lie still on your back for half an hour?"

" I do that every night when I fall asleep."

So it looks like a jab might do ( close to the eye??)😩😎😡

 

There'a mini bar in my room. Bloody useless one with water, coca cola etc. Where's the Jever? Or even a dry white wine? These are puritanical times! When  I were a lad, you could drink Guinness  in hospital and have a surreptitious joint in the smoker's room.😂😂

 

And, apparently , I won't even be allowed to eat or drink during the operation!

Is it air conditioned? That's what I hate about hospitals in the summer.

 

Wishing you an uncomplicated and successful surgery, my friend.

Just met the second of the two docs who will operate! I asked him if he was a proper eye doc rather than an orthopaedic surgeon or ear, nose and throat type and he answered in the affirmative!

 

When I smiled and said ( despite his mask covering) he had " einen geilen Simon & Garfunkel Haarschnitt  ", he answered in English: " I know.. I'm that age!"..

 

I like this place! 😂

I’m in the burbs of Athens now for a night @john g. and I enjoyed dinner on the beach at the tavern.  😋  Thought of you and all of your wonderful stories and pictures from Greece.  Couldn’t help but look at every single dog and skinny kitty.  😂  Wishing you all the best and a speedy recovery.  Can’t wait to see you back in business again.  😊
