Mentally, I have not realized my age.
I still seek out every option to feel young and look a few years younger than my chronological age.
But damn... the body knows!
Today was the day I had the other eye cataract removed and an Intraocular Lens implanted.
I had the first one done just about a year ago, and the experience was horrible.. several corrective surgeries to be able to see and a second surgery on the same eye as the cataract returned! Why do I have the kind of luck that I really don't need!
As much as I did not want to go through this again, I had to.. the vision was just failing.. And so it goes... and So I went.
This time, I am happy to report (please consider that the surgery just concluded less than 4 hours ago) that I can see well enough to read and type this posting without glasses. That my friends is true progress!
So, I now face my second "Old Age" challenge.
Again after almost 8 months of living in denial, and seeking 2 expert opinions, I have come to learn that my "old age creaks and pains" are due to an advanced arthritic hip, that needs to be replaced.
Damn, again, the kind of luck that I just cant seem to shake!
As much as I dread another surgery, I really need this one.. its a matter of timing, as my travel schedule has ramped up..
I did ask the doctor how long I could put it off, and he was to the point.. umm some day you wont be able to walk, and that may come sooner than later. Yeah... I better start to look at that calendar, cause this one is some sizable down time.
So as age advances, I am determined to address and replace my body parts with a tip to modern medicine to allow me to Feel My Mental Age and Carry on!
