A month ago I had eye surgery on one eye, and today was the day where I go for my final checkup before they make new glasses for me.
I’ve been wondering why things are taking so long. Sometimes I look like I’m about to cry. Everyday it feels like a feather is tickling my eye. The sun has become my worst enemy.
Turns out I still have a suture (stitch) left in my eye that shouldn’t be there and it’s scratching my eyeball and I have to be on the noon ferry tomorrow and get over to Courtenay for a look by a specialist. I asked the doctor why they didn’t put dissolving stitches in my eye. He said they don’t sometimes. WHY THE HELL NOT?
If I don’t make it, I want all my hockey stuff to go to my kids and I hope my wife collects a lot from the lawsuit that will be forthcoming due to my untimely demise caused by a stray suture.
