Off to surgery

Well, I'm off in a few minutes to my first cataract operation. On my left eye, the one that, however good the lens, I'm unlikely to ever see well enough out of to be able to read with it: I have amblyopia, which basically means that optic nerve never fully developed when I was little. I'm doing that eye first so as to go through the process once, learning all the little weirdnesses it entails, without having to also be functionally blind for ... a few days? weeks? ... as part of the bargain.

Jan wished me luck last night, and I babbled at him for a good five minutes in a manner that might also be described as perky. I am way more nervous about this than I want to let myself know.
