I have had a number of procedures over the years, from a deviated septum to ankle fusion – and everything in between. The cataract surgery was the simplest thing I’ve ever had. In my wife’s words, ‘They wheeled him away. I went for tea. By the time I got back they told me he was in recovery.’ It probably took longer to compose this email.
I’m not looking forward to having the other eye fixed someday. But when that day comes, I won’t be afraid either.
