I Can See Clearly Now!!!


Thursday morning of this week, I was up and out early.  I had to be at a nearby eye surgery center by 6:45.  Since last year a cataract in my right eye has been getting worse.  My doctor had told me then, “when it’s time to have it taken out, YOU’LL know.”  So this year when I went in for my yearly checkup, he took one look and, “It’s time.”  I already knew it, but was waiting for his opinion.
So, Thursday morning I had the operation.  I hate to even call it surgery because the medical staff  had it down to such an art, it seemed like a simple procedure.  I was back home within three hours!  Other than putting in a couple of different drops throughout the day and wearing a eye shield at night, I am totally back to normal.
EXCEPT!!!…I can see clearly again!  I can’t really convey to you how wonderful it is to sit at my desk and look out my window at the garden, and to see everything crystal clear…without glasses!!!DSC06439
My only concern now is what am I going to do with all those cute little readers I’ve been accumulating?

Send your readers to me in a sweet little rolled eyeglasses case. It doesn't even have to match my needle case!

Gee, it's been a while since I've visited. I'm happy to hear your seeing clearly again! I think the Lions or Rotary collects glasses and I'm sure they'd love your donation!

Have a wonderful day!

My mom is supposed to have this surgery done too and has put it off. I still use readers with my contacts for reading.
