So they all rolled over and one fell out , , ,!

This day was supposed to be when I wrote my next blog post, but one of the wheels fell off. The public health system, again, has got in the way of my plans. That is, the surgeon who placed a new, artificial lens into my right eye, in order to fix a cataract, has placed it quite a bit askew. As a result, I enjoy the vision of a mole! Everything looks as though someone has smeared my glasses over that eye with a thick layer of Vaseline. Added to that, my astigmatism is much worse, so bad that I am seeing double all the time. Trying to write is a nightmare.

However, the good news is my new glasses are ready to be picked up and my carer will take me to pick them up tomorrow. Yea! So, with luck and a fair wind, I will be able to write the real blog post at the weekend with no squinting, no finding the least fuzzy spot on my glasses, no holding my head at an oblique angle, no more hitting the wrong keys on the keyboard and definitely no more rubbing my eyes because of tiredness. I'm looking forward to seeing a brand new, clear world. Wish me luck.

As compensation for such a short post, here is a picture of Rosie, my little dog, who has taken the idea of the princess and the pea to new heights. Being a Chihuahua, she hates being cold so inserts herself in between the dog beds. My granddaughters and I call in the Rosie Sandwich. Enjoy!

  1. Tez, I had been waiting with bated breath for your next blog post. I'm so sorry to hear of the dreadful predicament you found yourself in! :-( You are actually the first person I've ever heard of that had a bad result from the cataract surgery. Usually people are overjoyed to have 20/20 vision from the artificial lens. Blast those incompetent doctors! I hope the new glasses take care of the problem and you can see right as rain again. Are you going to have surgery again to correct his mistake?

    Your little dog Rosie is a natural mood elevator. You must love her companionship and her ability to make you smile and laugh even when things don't go as planned. Thank you for sharing the pic of her. Please share more pics of whatever strikes your fancy! :-)
