I have survived!


I have lived on. My right eye is that of a newborn babe. I can see small objects at a great distance. I see the ancient kduru grazing on the mountainside. I see gnats around the flanks of cattle in the distance. I see naked ladies through the walls of their houses. (Well, okay, that might be a bit of a stretch.) But my ripped and torn eye is working better than ever. (It's the right eye here, slightly reddened, probably from trying to see through the walls of houses in my neighborhood.)

Here's the best part: The doctor and his nurses told me not to bend or stoop, not to lift over 20 pounds, to take care of myself. And all of this FOR A WEEK OR MORE!!!

Do you realize what that means?

No nasty duties for old Catalyst. SWMBO has been doing stuff that she hadn't even thought about for years. Because she is so caring and doesn't want poor Cat to hurt himself.


But I don't know how long I can keep this "oooooooooohhhhhhhhhh" moaning getting its money's worth.

In the meantime, here's a photo of the Rajah to tide you over.


  1. Wonderful news about your eye!

  2. Great news!

    And, um, are you sure it's only a week? I thought it was, um, two. Or three. No, four. Yeah, four!!

  3. Dang, you are on easy street for a week! Hopefully enough time to perfect the seeing through-walls technique. :)

    If you do manage it, let me know. I might be interested in some surgery as well.

  4. Meggie - Thanks!

    Colonel - No, that's how many weeks to spring where you live!

    Tombo - Oh, I still have my duties. As SWMBO says, "As long as you're upright!"

  5. Good news that you're on the mend ... are you putting the drops in?

    My mother has had both her eyes done and is really happy with the results.

    Hope all goes well with your healing.


  6. Oh, yes, 4 times a day. Thanks for your good wishes.

  7. Lovely scarf.
    They give you good drugs? It appears they did.

  8. Oh, you just soooooo jealous! :-D
