My eyes are beginning to see normally again. What I hate about visiting my ophthalmologist is the dilation part – although, being driven home at night is quite surreal – halos and starbursts around all the lights. And then I come home and turn on the kitchen lights and wonder who the heck snuck in while I was away and replaced all my low-key halogens with 1,000 watt bulbs.
On the plus side, I saw a locum – Dr. Chen – who I totally adore! I want her for my permanent doctor! Never has anyone in that profession taken so much care to explain everything to me – and to just be nice and funny and a great person. And the good news is that it’s all good news. The cataracts are, at this point, no big deal, and may never be a big deal.
So – I feel great and I can tick one more thing off my list not to think about. I do, however, need to think about how crazy busy I am. I’ve got some really interesting academic writing to do and the usual stories. Today, I multi-tasked by prepping for a feature, researching an MBA application and watching American Idol – all at the same time. I think I may have to double check the research – something about playing the guitar and hitting a higher register that may not belong in my notes….
