I Could Rent Myself Out as a Seeing-Eye Dog

My vision, post second surgery, is absolutely amazing.  I am so very happy to have almost perfect vision again.  Reading is accomplished through readers, but this will probably change as I go through the healing process.

I can't say enough wonderful things about my opthamologist.  I will say it is remarkable when someone finds a path in life that makes them perfect at what they do, and if what they do is make other people's lives better, well, seems pretty close to an ideal to me.  If you need a referral to a great eye physician, send me an e-mail.

Meanwhile, I'm going to Chicago this weekend to celebrate my eleventh wedding anniversary.  That's almost as big a miracle as good eyesight.  I tend to get very tired of people and their idiosyncrasies and move on.  (This has cost me large sums of money in my life and explains my financial disarray.  Well, that and the internal revenue sadists).  My marital history is best described as mostly serial monogamy.  Or it was.  Been with the same man for eleven years married, and quite a few leading up to the actual exchange of vows.    It's not that my husband's idiosyncrasies don't annoy me; it's just that he's constantly changing the menu and introducing new and pondersome behaviors.  I find him more interesting than annoying.  I guess that would be my advice to anyone considering marriage.  Plus, he cooks well, and he constantly surprises me.....not always good surprises.....but suffice it to say, I am rarely bored.  He is predictably unpredictable.

But, I digress.  Going to Chicago and seeing Chicago with clear vision is going to be the highlight of this winter.  Woo Hoo!  Chicago is the only reason I've been able to tolerate living in Milwaukee all of these years.  Shopping.  Blues.  Eating (dim sum in Chinatown --- be still my beating heart!).  We're eating at a restaurant on top of the John Hancock building Saturday evening.  Since we're in a blizzard-like weather pattern here in the mid west, we probably won't see a thing.  But snowflakes will never look so good to me!

Now, I have a question for all of you.  If anyone knows of a good doctor who can do for my face and body what my opthamologist did for my eyes, please send me his/her name immediately!

Congratulations to you both. Hope you enjoyed your stay in Chicago and the weather didn't cause too much disruption.
