Good Morning H.W.C.P.Nation!
I'd like to thank all my well wishers, Peep's and Fam's for all the support y'all have givin me since I learned I need another eye surgery! I woke up early as usual but am having a hard time w/o my coffee fix!! Yes, I am a java junky in the worst way! It's definitly the hardest part of any health procedure or surgery for me!! Also I hate not being able to eat anything in the a.m. although I'd gladly forgo anything to eat for a cup or three of JOE!!!

The hospital called late yesterday and said I didn't have to be in Tampa untill 8:00am instead of 7:00am!! The said the doc will be running late. So what else is new? Last time I had eye surgery in Jan. he was 2 1/2hrs late and I was his 7th surgery out of 8 that morning! I was the only one not having caterac surgery. Now I know how he braggs that he's done over 65K eye surgeries!!! He pumps them out like no ones biz!!!

Oh, on a good note. I recieved the $500. check in the mail from him yesterday!!! Yip-EE!! He's only owed me since Jan!!! Now I can pay the hospital what I owe them>> $488. and keep the $12. extra for a rainy day or maybe a nice day's fishing!!!

Speeking of fishing, it was such a awsome day yesterday when my wife and I got back from the Urologist (she came in to learn how to give me a testosterone shot!) I desided to hook up the boat trailer and head for the gulf since I won't be able to go for a while! High tide would be at 1:30-pm> Perfect!!! There wasn't even a wisp of breeze in the air and even though it had been blowing for 4 days mucking up the water and bringing in tons of weeds, I figured it would ne OK! It was 10:45 when I left and had the boat headed down the Crystal River by high noon! The wind had started blowing from the south west, oh no! By the time I reached the gulf, about a 3 mile ride, it was blowing at about 20mph and white caps were coming straight at me! I rocked and rolled down to the point where I had done well last time out and set up a drift into position to anchor up in perfect casting range. By now the wind was gusting over 30mph! Well the anchor grabed perfectly and the boat swung around and I was ready! Just as I was about to cast I see out of the corner of my eye>>> Flipper and friends are swimming right up the shoreline and about to pass my favorite spot!!! Now I love dolphins as much as the next guy but not now!!! As the passed my point I could see a smile on their faces as they porpissed out of the water! It was almost like they knew and got a big kick out of it! Anyway, I went home fishless and beat up from all the waves but happy I had gone anyway!

OK enough fishless stories, I have to leave now and go fight the Tampa traffic so I can wait for the Dr. to get there to hopefully get the whole enchallotta out of my eye this time!

Love Yuze Gize! I'll try to write later if I can!

Hugz!!

Patcheye Pete!

Hi Pete! I hope that your surgery goes well...thinking of you!

Sorry you came home fishless:(

I love to read about your adventures! It must be amazing to see Flipper and friends, even if they're around at the wrong time.

Hugs,

Oh Pete,

What you need to catch is a break!! You have it all going on right now.

Somehow I missed that you actually had to have another eye surgery. I'm so sorry! I think fibro brain gets me a little too often!

I will have you in my thoughts and prayers today and wish you all the best with your surgery.

You need those eyes to see the bait! Keep well my friend!

Thanks for the wonderful story this morning Pete...your posts are great! I woke up today a little on the crabby side (painful night, and not alot of sleep) but you made me smile! Good luck today and please let us all know how things went. I'm sure those fish will wait for you!

Thank you one and all!
I just got back home from Tampa and am trying to type w/ one eye> it ain't easy but then again, nothing's eazy when your used to having two good eyes!!! My friends Skeye and Chart are probably used to having limmited sight w/ their cronic eye problems but I'm not! I'm not real good at anything w/ one eye! So I'm gonna try to make this a short post. I don't know anything about my eye yet because my sh** for brains dr. left before I woke up in post opp! I don't know anything or have any report on what happened or how I made out! What kind of doc dosen't visit their patiant after surgery? I've had plenty of surgeries and plenty of lousy dr's but this is the first time I've been left clueless! Whats also messed up is the nurse told me before I left that I have an apt. at the doc's office on Fri. a.m. and to keep the eye patch on till then (2 days) but the doc told me the other day at his office (last Friday) that he wants to see me the next day (tomorrow) and the girl at the office scheduled me an apt for tomorrow already! What the hell? I'll tell you one thing> If this stinkin goobertumer grows back on my eye again after all this, I'm NOT going back to see this dumbazz again> ever!!!
So thats all folks! My eye hurts, the stitches itch and my eyelash keeps rubbing against the inside of the patch> driving me marrony! It's almost as bad as having a ingrown toenail!!!!
Sorry Mikey, I couldn't help it!! LOL!!! And for heavens sakes peoples, I'm just kidding!!! Thats what sillymen like Big Mike & I do!!! Come on everyone> sing along w/ Mikey & Me!!! We are the sillymen>we are the sillymen>>we are the sillysillymen!!!
So I guess I'll call the dr. office and get the run around about my next apt! Just what I need! Then maybe take a pill and try for a nap but after surgery all I wanted was coffee and I may have overdone it!! Drank my whole thermos of hot black Columbian w/ some Cuban esspresso stired in for extra octane!!
I hope everyone is having a better day than I but I'm sure thats not possable as so many of you have it so m uch worse than I do!!! Big one eyed hugs for all of Y'all!!!!
Love Yuze Gize!!!

Hey Pete...

Thanks for the update :) I'm glad things "seemed" to go well.. or so you think... I can't believe that the doc left... well, I can believe it - unfortunately. It sounds like he just has people lined up...one after the other - "assembly line" approach. Oh well... I just hope this has done the job to take care of what's going on w/ your eye.

Anyway, rest today... and I'm sorry your eye hurts so bad... Oh, and you and Mikey ARE sillymen...absolutely :) You both make me laugh...that's a good thing :)

Take good care...Tina

Make sure to follow all the follow up instructions Pete, use ice packs over your patch...
you'll probably need to see the doctor tomorrow, but call to make sure...and I'll keep you in my prayers,
my lump has finally turned into a knot and he would recommend me to surgery again, but
since I've already had 3 failed eye surgeries I declined..for now it'll just stay a knot..
good luck with those stitches my last one had 10 to 11 stitches and those hurt coming out...
she did not sedate me to take them out and as we were driving home the pain hit whamo, ..
Prayers and soft hugz, heal up this time, my orders...

Oh Dear Pete! I'm also sorry to hear that the Dr. left early. I would be pretty upset to say the least. Trust me, the Bad Biker would have had a few choice words to dish out.
I remember when I had my last epidural and the Dr did not sedate me as I had asked, I was clearly upset with him during the procedure, and he quickly excited the room when he was done.
He knew I was going to give him the once over! :) My bedside manner is pretty good, but when a Dr does not do his job right, my attitude changes pretty quick! (he should have listened to the patient)

The Physical Therapist that got me up to walk after my surgery, dropped my Pee Bag three times in a row, and you all know how much that might hurt :(
I looked him squarely in the eye and said "Listen up Pal!....Don't you do that again!" He knew I meant it too!
I was not a happy camper at all.

This all boils up to the professional staying one, and considering who he or she is treating. I think they may at times, become desensitized to patients because they see so many, and the procedures become repetitive to them.

Pete! ...lets hope the outcome will be better this time around. I can see where you would be upset, and the eye is a pretty vital part of enjoying life. He should have stuck around to let you know how it went! Period!

Thanks everyone again and again!
Just after I finished posting before my cell phone rang and it was the girl at the dr's office calling me to find out when my apt. was! I told her that the good doc didn't stick around to see me and I got it second hand that he wanted to see me Friday instead of tomorrow! She sad OK we'll make it Friday!
So I have to be patch-eye Pete till Friday! GRRRRRRRR! I guess it's probably a good thing though as I remembered how I tried to scratch the itch while sleeping last time and woke up w/ a bloody eye! I had forgot about that, I ripped a couple stitches out and had a small gash on my eyeball> Yukkypoo! It's not the worst thing I guess, just a pain in the eyeball! Also, I can't do anything much which makes me crazy! I can't build a new flyrod for my trip up north in a couple weeks! As if I need another one! I have somewhere around 20+ flyrods, I lost count a long time ago! The thing is, about 4 or 5 years ago, I built a special #5 weight - 9', 5 peice travel flyrod for taking on the plane w/ me. While out in Washington state for the "Reel Recovery" cancer & flyfishing 3 day retreat up in the Castcade Mts. I broke the tip section on a rainbow trout! It shouldn't have broken the way it did and it was warrantied for life. So I took a picture of it and e-mailed the company and got a brand new 5 peice 9' ~ #4 weight rod blank sent to me by mistake. I desided I would rather have the #4 weight (lighter) so I kept it but haven't built it yet because of all the rods I've built for other fam's & friends and also the spinning rods I JUST completed for my wife & I w/ micro guides! These rods cast so far it's unbelievable!! The guy I went fishing with about a week and a half ago already wants one after he tried mine! Cast twicw as far as his rod w/ the same size line! He's gonna have to wait!
Oh boy, sorry about the verbal diarea! I think it's residual from the anastesia or because Mr. Nap visited me for two hrs. and I just got up!! So where was I??? Oh yea, I can't tye flys, work on my boat, plant or tend to my garden, mow the grass, pick up the tree limbs I cut 2 weeks ago or anything else on the neverending honeydo list! I'M BORED!!! Hate it!!
It's a lovely afternoon here, probably the last cold front of the year pushed through last night and it was in the 50's this a.m. and only in the high 70's today! It's gonna be in the low 90's by this weekend! So I'm going outside w/ Rose the wonderhound and enjoy the evning!
I'll bore Y'all more later!
Love and Big Silly Hugz!!!!
Bored and itchy eyed Pete!

  Dear Pete,
 
     I am sorry I have been away from the forums the last few days. Its been very busy here in the Henson Household. I am glad to read that you are on your way to recovery though I am sure you are going stirr crazy. I agree with you about your surgeon, weird stuff when they don't touch base after a surgical procedure! Hopefully you havnt damaged much when you scratched your eye. Maybe you should put the eye patch back on just before bed til Friday? I hope you have a good evening , hang in there. You ll be back to finding trouble before too long!

Hi Pete,

I'm glad to hear that the surgery went smoothly (well, as far as you know, anyway, although I'm sure that if there was a problem the doc would have stuck around). I can't believe that your doctor never came to see you after surgery! How lousy. Did he at least talk to your wife?

I hope you are able to get a good night's sleep & the eye doesn't both you too much. I know what you mean about the itching. It's awful. I am always a bad girl & slip my finger under my patch to itch or rub around the eye. I know I shouldn't, but I just can't help it!

Careful not to bump into anything while you're wearing that patch!

hugs,
Skeye

ps - I'm incredibly jealous of you "cold" 70's. Want to send that "warm" weather up here? It never made it out of the 40's here today & there was an awful wind. Brrrrr. It is supposed to be near 80 this weekend though, so I guess that will make up for the cold this week.

Good one Chartreux! :)

Pete just make sure your NOT holding a fish hook, when you sit on your hands! :)

Pete, you have a pretty big fan club here! It is great to see all the members support you.

Be gentle with Dani, when she comes down there to visit you. Avoid the big Manly Sweaty Bear Hug at all cost, or you will crush her! :)

We will be waiting on your eye report.

Tina, Lorreta, Shannon, Flower, Kimber, R~Mom, Chart, Dani & Skeye>Thank you so much for youir replies! Oh you too Mikey! Geeze! Hope I didn't leave anyone out! If I did, I'm blaming my eye!
No the doc didn't talk to my wife either! I did take my patch off last night to see the horror show underneath! I wish my boys were here now to see their zombie eyed dad! It's all red and the pupil is open more than my other eye giving it a dead look> Pretty cool! Don't worry, I put the patch back on to sleep with! Then this a.m. I took it off and it felt pretty good, much better than with it on so I left it off and am wearing wraparound sunglasses, you know tha "Ray Charles look!" The eye isn't near as bad as last time though, I think I'll recover fairly fast and be ready for the boys next week! Now I've been goofing around all day! Still in my jammies! I'm gonna go look for that fly rod blank! Maybe I can at least get the flyrod started today! Here I am in fishing paradice and I'm dreaming of wading in a cold water brook up north catching little trout no bigger than some fish we use for bait down here??? Go figure, thats where I grew up and I love the big hardwood & pine trees and the cold mountain brook catching those little speckled jems on flys and a rod I crafted myself! I'm so lucky that I'm able to go up there twice a year on the cheap taking Mom up in the spring and driving her back in the fall! Well, I better go find that rod blank!
Later all!
W/ Love and Hugz>
Pete

Pete, glad to hear your eye is feeling better. I tried to post before but lost my internet connection before I could hit submit. Stupid internet, sometimes you'd think we lived in the jungle or something. Let's hope they got it all this time and you can put it behind you and continue working on your list of ailments to take care of.

Haven't heard anything from social security. If my doctor dx's me with the PMR on Wednesday I will have to get on the phone with my lawyer to make sure it gets added onto my appeal paperwork. It isn't on the so-called list of ailments on the SS list but it is auto-immune so that should help some. One of the symptoms is fatigue and I definately get that if I try to do to much at one stretch, so that may help if they think I can work 40 hrs per week. Yeah, sure!

I can't believe with everything you have going on that you weren't approved the first time. Excuse me but they are a bunch of idiots!!!!!

oh man, i lost my post and have to start again, ok here goes

Dear petey
I love to read your posts, except for the pain stuff, cause you always put a smile on my face.

You sure worry me about your eye, please take it easy. And if i was your nurse, you would get tons of tlc.

Fishing rods, yeah my husband has tons of them too. He is crazy about fishing. You guys could exchange some pretty good stories I am sure of it. But I love fishing too, as long as i am catching, of course. My biggest catches have been a ten pound muskie and a pretty big baracuda when we did deep sea fishing in Cuba in 2004.

Take care my friend

hugs

Thanks everyone! Sorry, I thought I had posted about my dr. apt. but I guess not. The doc said he had to dig very deep to get the "whole thing" out! I sure hope he did this time! These surgeries are getting old really fast> 2 in 5 months! He said it looks good and tookout a stitch or 2 and retied another. He told me to use the steroid/antibiotic eye drops for a month! Last time I felt crappy the whole time I was using them so we'll see? It's not near as bad as last time pain ^ itchwise as the thing was so much smaller! The whole inside white part is totally red to the iris w/ a small hole on the iris (brown/green) part of my eye. It looks dead to me so Y'all can call me "Dead Eye" for a while!
My BOYS will be here tomorrow night!!> I hope!! Joe (my older) got into Norfolk this a.m. He flew in from Seattle on the overnight flight to Charlotte and almost missed his connection there as the plane was dodging storms across the midwest. Good thing he's in good shape! He said he had to run acrosss the airport to catch his flight! They will leave to drive down in the morning, about 13~14 hr. drive! I'm a little worried because they are going to Virginia Bch. tonight w/ some of Pete Jr.'s Sailor buddies and well> will probably party like sailors! The are good responsible boys though and will surly take a cab! Unfortunately, I wasn't that smart when I was that age! But it was a different world then and of course, I was from The "Just say YES genneration!" How I lived when so many of my good friends died is beyond me!
Anyway, after tomorrow I might not be posting much untill they leave> around the 13th and I will be driving Mom back up to her Lake house in N.W. Jersey the same time! I'll be gone about a week to open up the house, rake the leave, put out the porch furniture and boats, put the dock in and catch many>many Yankee fishes hopefully w/o falling in the cold water too many times> I take a fall every year usually in the Big Flat Brook!! N/.J.'s finest troutstream 3 miles from Mom's house! Some of you probably think all of N.J. is a cesspool> some is but not at all where Mom lives!! The northern most part near the Penns & N.Y. State lines is a wonderfull area! The Appalachian Trail goes right over the Mt. behind Mom's house and most of the land to the Delaware River is State or Nationally owned!! It looks more like Vermont than what most people think of Jersey!!!
Oh I'm babbling again! I must go work on the rod I started yesterday! So Y'all have a painfree night> OK!!!

PS> Jag, nothing from SSD yet either! I think the auto imune thing should help on your case! I'm still prayin you'll win!!! Lorie, thanks for your kind words! Your the best!!!
Suzane, Sorry that happened to you!!! I hate it when that happens and when it does, my post changes drasticly cause my mood changes! Yes, I'm sure the fishing got to you! Espessially if your not used to doing it!!! Next time stick them in the cooler ice if you use one way up there! Geeze a 10lb muskie must have hurt your wrists bad, those things fight like mad, just luike a fresh water cuda but you know that already cause you caught both!!! I'd love to talk fishin w/ you hubby! Chart, no scratyches yet, I slept w/o the patch last night and woke up OK!!! Thanks for asking my badeyebuddy!
Mikey, I e-mailed you so you get nothing here>>> except a big stinky hot wet swetty manhug!!!!! It was 95 and humid here today> Yuk!
When I was young & stupid I broke almost every bone in my body and I'm paying a heavy price now but I'm still here and so glad to see my two sons grow up to be fine young men, both are in the Navy. I'm so proud!
