Today is surgery day for my right eye. Nervous and excited, when I should be calm. But at least it will all be done very soon and by this afternoon, I'll have my feet up and will be rejoicing it's over with.

It's only two hours at the clinic and the surgery itself takes about eight minutes. I guess I'm not as wound up as I might be. Even I have a hard time getting too freaked out about eight minutes. When I felt myself getting panicky last night, I took a Xanex which was just the right thing to do. I'm so used to only taking it when I'm on my way to a doctor, I often forget it can be helpful for the day before the doctor, too.

It's done! And while my vision will still be blurry till tomorrow or so, I can already tell the doc wasn't kidding when he said colors would pop. Since the cataracts come in gradually, you don't notice colors slowly getting duller. But I was blown away by the intensity of the autumn colors on the way home. Well worth it for that alone! :-)

I am really, really happy for you - I can't imagine not being able to see colors vividly; it would be like permanent twilight. So glad it's worked out! :)
