Youth Can Be An Awful Thing

Having seen the ophthalmologist this morning, it appears (a visual term) that I will need cataract surgery. although first the doc wants to make sure this is not MS masquerading as a cataract--so more tests to come first.

My neuro-ophthalmologist has already done these tests, of course, but why believe a neuro-ophthalmologist when you can order the tests again for yourself and charge twice, right?

Well, you're awfully young to have all these cataracts, he says.

I apologized, of course. What else could I do?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: New body, new body!

I suppose the good news is that I am awfully young-- especially at my age. Unless you put the emphasis on the awful part.
