Well, it's different.
Good thing I can touch type, because I can't see the keyboard clearly. In fact, I can't see much of anything clearly, because I have one eye that has been corrected for distance vision by an implanted lens to replace my cataract-clouded natural lens and one eye with nearsighted vision.. However, the astigmatism remains in the "fixed" eye's cornea, so I cannot read at a distance. So much for reading street signs. I won't be driving anytime soon, but will have to rely upon the kindness of strangers--as Blanche Dubois put it--for all my remaining appointments, of which there are a bunch.
Now I'm going to go have a good cry, because it's going to be a very long six weeks until this journey is over.
