After a long abscence, I'm finally back. I had to let my eyes recover from the surgeries and now I can read small print with the help of over the counter glasses. I've had two of the 6 sutures removed from my eye and will have the last 4 taken out in the span of the next three months. Two at a time. After that I can get a permenant pair of glasses and my sight should be almost totally back. It should be enough for me to be able to get my license.I haven't read a book since the surgeries and I'll be able to start reading tonight. I've a book called, "Redshirts" and it's about the conspiracy behind why the "Redshirts" die all the time in the first Star Trek series. It's suppose to be very funny and I am really looking forward to it. I hope everyone is doing welland it's great to be back.
