My Plans for Today.

Today, quelonzia undergoes cataract surgery, replacing the clouded lens of one eye with an artificial implant. The other will be done some time in December.

On the other side of the country, today, my oldest sister is having breast cancer surgery.

If things go well, this should result in marked improvements for each of them. I could handle either situation individually with equanimity; knowing that both surgeries are happening roughly simultaneously is a bit much to wrap my head around.

So... I'm a little stressed and distracted right now, and the last thing on my mind are my plans for the holiday season.

(Note: Quel reads my journal, so if you want to send her your best, you can do so here.)

quelonzia update

The Fire of my Heart is back. Surgery went well; on the drive home, she was astounded at the IMMEDIATE improvement in her vision, both from the absence of cataract cloudiness and the reduction or elimination of near-sightedness from that eye.

She's currently snoozing peacefully, sleeping off the last of the sedative from the operation.

No word on my sister, yet; Mom's new cell phone is apparently either out of juice or out of service area.

It seems that "setting up voice mail" is to the dawn of the One-And-Twenty what "setting the clock on the VCR" was to the '80s and '90s.
