Shell, I hope your eye surgeries continue to go OK. Last summer, my sister-in-law, who's in her mid-60s, had a cataract removed from each eye, the procedures done about two weeks apart. Had no problems.

She went whole hog and also had some sort of lens (or something) procedure done on each eye as well, which improved her vision to the point that she no longer wears eyeglasses.

In my case, there is no need for the "whole hog" treatment. My wife, on the other hand, needs what is called TORIC LENSES because of her astigmatism. One does what one has to do.

My second Cataract Surgery went well. We got to the clinic at 1215 and by 1415 we were out the door. Barb drove me home and I took a nap. I was awakened by my phone going off. Betsy Blair called to see how I was doing. Right now, the time is 1950 and we just got back from our usual Optical Shop. They looked at my eye and said good job. The right eye is still dilated and that will take perhaps two days to clear up. As of now, I CAN drive without my glasses, but I will still use them for safety. I CANNOT participate in anything this year in San Antonio as I must wear sunglasses at all times in daylight. Next year will be a different story. So...all is good.

Let's not go there, as Barb actually had that happen after her second go round. She was at one of the schools where she private teaches music and went to sit down in a chair behind her...AND IT WASN'T THERE. She went down hard on her bee-hind and has been sore since. Nothing broken as I made her go to CentraCare the next day for X-Rays.

Davy Webb's brother Ted Webb has just had back surgery and may be laid up several
Months.

Here's the link to Ted Webb's "Go Fund Me" account:
https://www.gofundme.com/thvh3f-dads-ba ... 768dbaecff

Ted Webb.jpg
Ted Webb.jpg (53.81 KiB) Viewed 1093 times


Says his daughter, Ashleigh Webb:

Back on October 18th my Dad was in the hospital due to falling. He initially was
diagnosed with 3 herniated disks (T7, T10, and T12) and they believed this was
the source of his excruciating pain. Unfortunately because of this pain he was
unable to work from October until mid- January.

He had 2 rounds of epidural steroid injections in which he had to undergo general
anesthesia. These were supposed to relieve some- if not most- of his pain, but
unfortunately they did not. During this process my Dad found out that he only had
short term disability at work so he had to return even with the pain.

He we went to see another specialist in January who advised he would need
another MRI done and this is when they realized that not only did he have the
herniated disks, but he also had a compression fracture that had been
untreated and he was diagnosed with cervical stenosis.

This brought some relief because we were desperately wanting some relief for
my Dad's pain. He was then scheduled for a Kyphoplasty to relieve some
pressure from the compression fracture. Dad underwent the procedure on 2/15.
The surgeon was extremely happy with the results and was sure that this would
give my Dad almost "immediate" relief. On February 17th my Dad went back
into the hospital because of excruciating pain and not being able to breathe.
He was released that night, but sent home with more pain medication and
instructed to come back in if he was still having issues breathing.

He spoke with the spine surgeon on Monday, February 20th and there has now
been a new surgery scheduled to focus on the stenosis as this is now what they
believe is causing the pain. The surgery he will undergo is an Anterior Cervical
Fusion and this will be the most extensive of all. This surgery will take 4-5
hours and 2 surgeons will be operating. This surgery is schedule for 3/9 and to
understand the urgency- if he were to fall before getting it there would be a
serious chance of my father being paralyzed. Once the surgery is performed
my Dad will be on a feeding tube and ventilator for 2-7 days depending on the
complications.

I am opening up this account because my Dad will for sure be in the hospital for
2-7 days and then the recovery process will take up to 6 months. Depending on
complications he can be out of work for up to 3 months. We are hopeful that it
will not be that long, but also with his previous history we want to be prepared.
His COPD is the most concerning factor because we do not want it to inflame
anymore then it already has.

My Dad is a very prideful man, but we are asking for help because out of the
time he will have off only 2 weeks will be paid for since he used up his short term
disability from October to January. All of his reserves and savings are gone
because of the procedures he has already had to undergo and we pray that he
will have a job once all of this is done. It is a serious concern that he could lose
the house if he is unable to work and pay the bills so we are trying to take one
stress away.

We appreciate anything that is donated and if you cannot donate we ask for all
the prayers we can get during this difficult time. Please feel free to reach out
if you have any questions at all.

Help spread the word!

I have had the same issues and I know the pain he is in. The bad thing is, it will be longer than 6 months to get back to normal...unless he has a miracle with the surgery. He needs to apply on line for SS disability. If they deny him funds, then hire an Attorney and he will get it.

This just in from Ted Webb:

This is Ted. I just want to say thank you so much for all the prayers on my behalf. This has been, and still is, a terrible experience. I honestly would not wish this on anyone. Still have a ways to go to get well, and the money situation we wont even discuss. Thank you for what has been given to my acount. Every little bit helps. I love you all, and again THANK YOU for whatver you are able to do. I know that GOD has this and has me in the palm of his hand. You are all wonderful.

Damn! - Maybe having carers and nurses to visit him regularly can prevent him from going to a rest home. I just suggested it to him and told him he should look into that possibility.

Man, had a very close call this morning. Was having breakfast with some former work friends and I began to choke on a combo of toast and soda. The drink didn't go down right and stuck in my throat and I could not get a breath or get it to move. It wasn't looking too good there for a second or two or eight or ten. One of the guys started hitting me in the back and I forced a cough and it finally cut loose. Mighty scary.

Glad you pulled through. Did someone say the word "Republic" just before you got tight in the throat and choked on your toast and soda? :roll:

Betsy, I hope you quickly recover from your hip replacement surgery. And if you are able to keep up with Joann's and Joe's dancing, then your hips truly are bionic. I saw those two dancing during HHD's 2017, and they moved like teenagers on American Bandstand. I got winded just watching. :)

Some kind of flu/cough/cold has hit our house, and it looks like we may have to cancel Christmas. It started with Loretta getting feverish and developing a terrible cough more than a week ago. She went to the doctor on Friday and she's now on prescription medication. She's getting better, but still has heavy congestion and a nagging cough. That same symptoms hit me Friday night, too late to see a doctor. Congestion, cough, sore throat and fever. Don't think I'll be able to go to church Sunday (4th Day of Advent) or Monday (Christmas). Was planning on having our family over for Christmas dinner, but that's beginning to look like a long-shot. There's a 22 pound turkey in the refrigerator with all the fixings ready to prepare, and it looks like we it's all for naught unless we suddenly get well.
What a bummer! :(

A vaporizer with VICKS on a bed stand at night and rub that stuff into your chest and shoulder blades. If you don't have a vaporizer, put a pan of water over a heating vent. Moisture in air helps.

That´s a bummer for sure! Maybe the family could do the cooking if you´re not too ill to have a Christmas dinner.
I never knew congestion and fever is part of a cold. It could be something else. Good thing your wife saw the doctor.
The weak pain killer, Paracetamol, which you can buy over the counter, reduces fever too. Lots of people uses them for fever inc. myself. You should give them a try.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery to you both.

Thanks for the advice, Hans. Over here Paracetamol is called Acetaminophen. We've got plenty of that in the medicine cabinet. I'm an aspirin man, myself.
Fargo suggested I use Vick's in a vaporizer and to rub some on my chest, too. That may be a good idea, but I can't stand the smell of that stuff.
We decided to have the family Christmas dinner at our house, as planned. I'm not able to go out due to my congestion and all around feeling lousy, so I'm not able to get to church. To make things worse, the cedar pollen allergy season has just started, and that's another reason to stay inside.
I'm writing this at 7 a.m. Christmas morning. The turkey is already roasting in the oven, and the corn on the cob is cooking on the stove. There's much more to prepare, and I'll stumble through the motions with true grit. Smells good already. Glad we didn't cancel. :D

Glad to hear you´re able to have a family Christmas dinner after all. - I never heard rubbing a Vick´s vaporizer on one´s chest before, but I guess there´s no harm in trying it out. Aspirin lowers fever too, just like Paracetamol does. Here, Paracetamol is sold under different names all starting with a P - Panodil, Pamol and Pinex. Anyway, if you still have fever you should take a couple of either Asperin or Paracetamol 2-4 times a day. I hope you have something for your pollen allergy.
Merry Christmas - or at least as merry as it can be under the circumstances.
