Now it has progressed from a minor focusing issue to not being able to see anything but blurry shapes out of my right eye. That one was the more difficult surgery of the two. I am getting a secondary cataract in it, and most likely the other one is also developing a cataract. It is a fairly common malady.
My sight in the right eye is akin to applying Vaseline to the eye and trying to see out of it. I find it difficult to drive and read, as the two eyes just don't play well together! Fortunately, if I really need to see well, I can close that eye and use my left eye.
On Monday, the 11th, I will be having the laser surgery to remove the secondary cataract.
I am so looking forward to having the surgery done. I'm hoping that this will finally restore my vision. I will keep you posted!
On another note:
For the past few days, I've taken a breather here on my blog. I've written a poem a day for two months in a row. Not only that, but it is the fourth year I have done this in March and April. May has been my winding down month.
Yesterday was my daughter's birthday, five days before that, it was her daughter's first birthday. We went down to visit them and celebrate a bunch of birthdays all mixed in together, as her brother-in-law and sister-in-law both had birthdays this week also.
It was a fun time getting to see everyone, and especially getting to see the grandkids!
What a treat it was to get to see my granddaughter take her first step two days after her first birthday! She's done plenty of sitting and crawling since then, but still, I've had the privilege of seeing both of my grandchildren take their very first steps! And that is no "small feat" (oh, that's a good one...), as they live 450 miles away, and we don't see them often.
And that is a slivery slice of my life today.
