CHRIST IS RISEN
I just wanted to give an update about my two cataract surgeries. If I did not have help from my sister and brother-in-law, I think I would just now be able to have the surgery for one eye. As it is, the left eye was done in November, 2013, and the right eye was done in April, 2015. Has been so strange when going out with no glasses, that I had a pair of sun glasses made – the shade is not strong, just enough to cut down the glare, which I am not used to yet.
The world does look so much better now; that is, the physical world. I see beautiful greens, blues, reds, and oranges. With some of the family I made a short trip to Dagupan (it’s on the Philippine Sea). The Bougainvillaeas were blooming in a bright violet colour, no red or white, and trees were blooming in yellow and orange. Just very wonderful to see so well.
I thank God that the surgeries went very well and that the surgeon was A#1, best in the country, and that my sister and brother-in-law have been so kind to me. I am still recovering from the right eye surgery, which is coming along so well that the surgeon said I only needed to see her if I had problems.
