Off To See The Wizard...!


Well, I'm off to the V.A. today to have a pre-op discussion with the eye doctor at the eye clinic there!

I'm supposed to have the cataract surgery on the 20th, and this is hopefully the last meeting I'll have to have before they do the operation!

I'm not worried about the procedure, but it really is a lot of prep work before. That's the way it is with all paperwork, I guess, especially when dealing with a government agency!

I'm looking forward to being able to see clearly again! It's getting harder and harder to see the words on the lap-top screen and to be able to keep up with the daily blogging! That's one reason for the really bad post as of late!

Anyway, just wanted to let you all know why I didn't post anything but a short message today! Sorry about that, I really will try and do better!

offee is in the back...but you all knew that, right? Help yourselves!

HJ, you faithful followers, including me, will certainly understand if you're not able to read or post blogs. The most important thing is to take care of yourself and get better. We will be here waiting when you return. Take good care.

No problem with short post, hope everything goes smooth as silk. Like hearing, good vision is a blessing.

Have a great weekend.

Good luck, hope your peepers are up to the task of sniping after the operation!

Otherwise, you'll have to change the name of your blog to "Coffee with Mr. Magoo"! J/K!

Jim, I had both eyes done early this summer, just after I got back from my Terlingua trip. They did them 4 weeks apart and the actual operation lasted 7 minuites. No pain involved, and you can drive the next day. I can't remember when I could see this clearly. Hope your procedures go smoothe.

Ahhh... not to worry. The important thing is that you get your op over and done with, and that you can see clearly once again!
Focus on YOU right now... and not the blogging, so put that worry right out of your head!
