Eye operation etc

My eye operation was a success. Each day that goes by, my vision improves.

As a really nice incentive to get well, my editor's assistant emailed me my revisions as well a copy of my cover. As soon as I have figured out how to get permission to publish it on an open forum, I will.
I am so proud of it.

The revisions are not difficult and do make a lot of sense. Always helpful. But some of them such as changing a basket of wool in peas or changing the colour of a cloak from green to purple, I should have noticed.
With my new improved vision, I am also catching some of my typos. Cringe.

Nevertheless as I am not allowed to cook, clean or otherwise lift things, working for short burst on TSD has helped. Although the roller coaster feeling will no doubt start, the minute I press the send button and return the manuscript to my editor.

Christmas was lovely and peaceful. My best present was my sight. A cataract operation is a wonderful thing. You do not realise how much sight you have lost, until you get it back!

Glad you're recovering well. You've been in my thoughts and prayers.

Great to hear your operation went well. I have been thinking of you.

Glad it went well. And I know where you're coming from - when I got my hearing back, it was a complete revelation (especially hearing birdsong for the first time in years - and harmonies on my favourite songs that I never even knew were there). Enjoy! And a very happy new year.

Hooray on a successful operation and for minor revisions! :)
