Cat-a-what?

I was told by my Ophthalmologist‎ last December that I had a cataract in my right eye that was there and will probably grow some. Oh great, I thought, Just what I need.

Jim and I had our yearly appointment today and I left shaking my head. It seems that now I have a sister growing for the right eye cataract, as one is starting in my left eye.

Seriously?

I’m not even 58 yet.

I remember, as a kid, grandparents and great grandparents getting cataract surgery. I really felt the moment of retirement.Here I am, avid writer and reader, and I have not one but two cataracts.

I think I am going to drink tonight. I mean, why not?
