I have cataracts in both eyes. One eye is MUCH worse than the other and doesn’t like glare of any kind. This results in having one eye closed while using a computer or trying to watch TV. (Computer use is restricted to about 5 minutes).
Last week I went to the ophthalmologist, who said I would have to undergo about an hour of tests. Within the first 5 minutes he told me I need an operation urgently. And as it turns out, I will have 2 operations 2 weeks apart, with the first one on Friday.
But it turns out that one eye has a very thick cataract, which makes vision in that eye blurred,,,all the time, but the other eye also has a cataract. It isn’t as bad yet, but that eye has the worst vision and needs to have a special lens put in when the cataract is removed. How special? Another $500.00 special!
I have been told not to drive, and with a new car, that is not easy, but knowing that I can’t even see traffic lights until I am almost in the intersection, it is best to stay off the road.
On the down side, Rassilon is not going out and meeting people or visiting at the hospital. I actually think a short break might help him. He seemed to be losing concentration when he went visiting.
He was still doing well, but not as well as when he started. Lets hope he just needed a short holiday.
I tried Rassilon with his new boots. He was fine. He didn’t try to get them off, and there was no funny walking, well not that funny. The only problem is that they grip on the carpet, but when he is outside, no problems. And he is quite happy to keep them on.
I heard about someone that went to university and studied philosophy.
Now in his job he can ask, “Why do you want fries with that”?
