Was made to come to the clinic at 7.45 am, and realized that the surgeon would arrive only at 9am. Was issued a cap and a robe that made me look the latest thing in the wedding-caterer-servers fashions. (Let me try and upload the pics my friend took.)
The funniest part is sitting at home because every hour on the hour (oh, it's time now!) I must put in 1, 2, 3, or 4 different types of drops.
Been listening to a lot of good music :D
Been getting a lot of advice. People never want to ask how I am feeling. They call only to give advice, most of which is....wrong.
More later. I want to share that yes, I did have some tension about "what if it goes wrong just for ME?" ....the right eye will be done tomorrow.
The doctors at the Prabha Eye Clinic are very good. I can't say the same of a counsellor who actually told me twice, "Madam, surgery absolutely no risk." I'm all for having an optimist (not an optometrist) as a counsellor...but this was a bit much!
Also, the insurance, which, like a loincloth, will barely cover my nakedness and still make me pay large sums....
Will write a consolidated post later. Cataract removal...who knew there could be so much humour in it?
