I am still lying around face down waiting for Friday when I see the eye surgeon. Had to give my head a bit of a shake. I wasn’t happy about the lying face down business and let it get to me a little. Then I realized, huh, what good was that doing other than spoiling my mood. Now I am not saying I am enjoying being stuck all day long with my head face down between 2 pillows but it isn’t all that bad, so many do have it worse. I just can’t seem to get into my meditation though, the position is just to awkward.
Now actually I think I most likely make quite the dashing sight when I climb into bed at night.
First off I have on my full CPAP mask. I picture myself looking amazingly like Tom Cruise in Top Gun. The masks are very similar after all. Now on top of that I wear my stylish pirate eye patch. Now an old pirate patch would not do. I wear the white plastic model. The one that requires miles of tape to secure to my face. The kind of tape, you all know it, the type that pulls out any hair it may be attached to. Given enough time I am pretty sure the eye brow will grow back.
Ask any man and what do you need to fix almost anything? Well, duct tape of course. Yup, you got it I also wear duct tape every night. Now if I heard someone wore duct tape to bed at night I would think them either kinky or weird. Which do you think applies?
My normal sleeping position is flat on my back or on my right side. Now it seems this magic gas bubble in my eye to be most effective must be positioned at all times. This includes while I am asleep. I am to sleep on my left side with my head slanting in a downward direction over the edge of the pillow, quite an awkward position. While sleeping I seem to have a tendency to flip over on to my back. The nurses in the hospital first noticed this and prescribed the solution, duct tape. Duct tape 2 golf balls to the middle of your back. Roll over on those babies and trust me, it will give you enough of a poke to send you back on to your side. Hey I am not joking about the golf balls.
Sill no real vision but IT IS GOING TO COME.
