January was the month of cataract surgery. Now, if you want a rocking good time just try cataract surgery. Nothing to dull the edge. Hold your body stiff as a board because, as the doc talks about his latest trip or race or why there is the smell of burning electrical wire in the room, should you move your head a milimeter, just what could the consequences be??
I had no desire to find out. So, I found that every muscle in my body was rigid as I lay there watching water swirl in my right eye. Which was the eye that had some pain with the surgery. After having one eye done, the second eye was well, easier. No pain. But, I counted and confirmed that it did take more than 2 minutes to do the surgery.
That being dwelt on enough in this blog, I am counting off the days till my vision is totally clear. I am sure the steroid drops, still in one eye, are not helping my vision; which is said to be 20/20 now.
I did see the moon the other night. For the first time in my life, I looked up and saw the moon clearly without any glasses.
Now, that was cool!!!
I will be back to posting regularly in about two weeks, when I am done with eye drops and get a pair of reading glasses. Right now I am using this credit card sized plastic magnifier to read. Not cool!
