The timing isn't what I would have chosen. But it has been in place for two months and I don't know how far in the future I would have to wait to reschedule. So I'm moving forward with the removal of the cataract in my right eye tomorrow morning.
I'm not really conscious of being anxious about it, though any sane person would have some apprehension about someone cutting their eye. I know that this has become routine surgery and people undergo it every day; I know that my ophthalmologist is widely respected and has done many of these procedures. Compared to what Joe has been through, this really is not a big deal.
Nonetheless, I believe that at some deeper level I have some anxiety and some fear. As I said, the timing isn't what I would have chosen. I'll be relieved when this is behind me.
