Eyes: The Sequel
I’m having cornea replacement surgery tomorrow morning.
I was born with two eye diseases. The operable one can be cured by replacing a defective layer of cells beneath my cornea. My right eye was done in 2007 (details for the curious and non-squeamish in my post Eyes ) now it’s time for the left eye.
There is good and bad news in having it done a second time.
Good: I know what to expect
Bad: I know what to expect
I’ve been lying awake at night thinking about the bad, so here’s the good: this time I have a netbook and a smart phone.
After surgery, I need to lie down flat for five days and can’t bend my head forward or exert myself for a month. Last time I could not sit up and use a computer for a week. This time, after the first couple of days when I start to feel better, I can get live streams and podcasts on the phone and netbook while still lying on the couch. IRC is out, but I can stay in touch on Twitter.
It’s great to be a connected couch potato.
And I’m really glad I only have two eyes!
See you January 3 in #cnetfans
