The guardsmen of the Hell Pyramid use the hot springs outside the city as a place for relaxation…and apparently, they’re a hotspot for violent altercations.
So, #Squirrel has her second eye surgery on Friday. This time, she had both a retina reattached and a cataract removed. I guess the cataract surgery is a bit harsher than the reattachment, because she’s in a good deal more pain than she was last time. I think I told you guys that the prognosis for this eye is nowhere near as favorable as it was for her first eye…the ophthalmologist recommends that she think of it as her “supplemental” eye, or a backup. She might end up being able to read only the top line of the eye test charts, the giant capital E, with her left eye…
…and that’s okay, I guess. She has 20/25 vision in her right eye, and that’s enough to be able to drive, to read, to live her life.
Still, as I’m sitting here typing this, I’m struck by how devastating a disease diabetes is. Wilford Brimley memes and jokes are great and all, but the disease itself is a terrible thing. I’m continually astonished by how well #Squirrel maintains her strength and poise carrying this…and me…around.
Man, I love my wife.
