Thanks. :) Well, that was certainly interesting. Right now I'm typing
this thanks to the wonders of Apple's CloseView(tm) software, which
magnifies everything on your screen. I have a feeling your surgery went a
little better than mine, Mark, but overall I'm in good shape. We did the
right eye on Saturday but I was having such a difficult time with it that my
doctor decided to wait a bit before doing the left eye. That was today. He
made a few changes in procedure to accommodate my overly sensitive eyes, and
then I think a couple of miracles happened because the left eye was about
10,000x easier than the right. Unbelievable. Anyway, it's still a little
bit red and itchy (feels like there's something in my eye) and a bit hazy,
but that's going away quickly. Wahoo! I can see!
