My Two Eye Surgeries
My story is about my right eye. When I was little my eye was closed for one month. I had 2 eye operations when I was 8 years old.
When I was 6 or 7 years old, I had a little ball on my eye for a year. Kids were asking me questions about my eye. They were asking me “Why do you have the little ball on your eye?” And I said, “I don’t know”.
I didn’t like the little ball on my eye because it was annoying me. But I didn’t feel it and it didn’t hurt.
I had the first eye surgery on the 4th of January. I drove with my mom and dad. When I got into the hospital I felt a bit scared. Then I changed my clothes and then I got into the room. There were 4 people when I came into the room. I was shaking because I was going to have my first eye surgery. Then I laid down on the bed. I slept and my mom and dad were with me. I thought the surgery was 5 minutes. But no, it was 2 or 3 hours. Then I woke up in another room and my mom and dad were there.
I will tell you about the time between my first and my second eye surgery. I felt happy a lot. I could play a lot. In school I could do everything and in my mind I was thinking about the second eye surgery and I didn’t like it.
My second eye surgery was on June 27th in Glostrup hospital. It was summer time and it was morning time. I was not allowed to eat breakfast because the doctor said so. I could only drink water. First I drove to the hospital. Second I changed my clothes and then I went into the room and there were 4 people again. I thought the surgery was 10 or 20 minutes but no, again it was 3 or 4 hours. Last I woke up and I had something on my hand and something on my eye. I took it off and it didn’t hurt.
Today I feel happy a lot. My eyes are a lot better now. Now I don’t worry about my eye and I don’t need the doctor anymore.
