Sleepless Dream


Dear Family and Friends

First report post-surgery. I got to the Dr.’s office at seven, and by eight or so I was in the surgical office, where they proceeded with all their magic. They removed my lens, inserted a bionic one, and did some laser correction on the astigatism of that eye. By nine o’clock I could see the Dr. through the little window in the protective shield I had taped over my eye. REALLY see him. Better through my left eye (my worse one) than through the right one WITH a contact lens in. In my entire life, I never was able to see more than fuzzy fuzzy stuff by opening my eye. Ever. Overcome, the floodgates could not withstand the emotional response. I am left speechless.

I leave further details to a time when thought catches up to this alteration of my being.
