To see or not to see?

I have been given details of my eye operation. They will attempt to fix the retina in place, but believe the loss of sight in that eye cannot be rectified. How this will affect my sight in future remains to be seen, but currently the partial vision in the left eye blurs the overall picture.

I have found it clearer if I wear this, which I knocked up a couple of days ago.

Anyway, tomorrow I have to drive to Southampton for a Covid PCR test. Then I must isolate myself until Tuesday, when I need to be at Southampton hospital by 07:30, which means leaving home around 05:30. A friend is caring for our dog from Monday night.

The operation will be carried out under sedation, and I don’t mind admitting that I am terrified of the prospect of being even partially awake while folks poke about in my eyes. All being well, it should be over by about 12:30.

Meanwhile I hope to try my good eye at painting a few soldiers while in isolation. I bet there will be other tasks found for me instead!
