The long anticipated eye surgery (it sounds very odd to say that) did not happen yesterday. It has been postponed until next Thursday. So I continue to peer very closely at things I want to look at. Blurry vision can be a real boon to an inward-looking person – which I am not, by the way.
If anything, I am an observer of life in all its variety. And right now it is all a great blur. I am not a happy camper.
As long as I sit close to my monitor I can see perfectly well, thank you. Certainly well enough to write, rewrite and edit. And I can even do a bit of research as long as I don’t have to get out of the house and go somewhere to look at stuff. But that is exactly the kind of research I love to do.
So my life is essentially on hold until I get my sight back, and get new lenses in my glasses. I can see pretty well without them, enough to get by on, but until I get this oil out of my left eye and the healing is complete I can’t get a new prescription for my glasses. That’s about two months after the surgery.
As I mentioned earlier, I am not a happy camper.
I hope you are having a better week than I, and I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Be safe out there!
