Paul’s Cataract Surgery a Success

My 80-year-old friend, Paul Moor, who lives in Berlin, called at his usual time this morning to report that he underwent successful cataract surgery on his right eye today. He had been anticipating the operation with fear and trembling, but he reported that it was over almost before he knew it. He said he recalled that they administered a shot to his hand and the next thing he knew it was over. There was absolutely no pain and though he must now wear a bandage over his eye for a few days, he is eager to get the other eye done now as quickly as possible. In an interesting concession to modern technology, the doctors gave him a video tape of the operation so that he can watch it when he chooses. Now if he can manage to get through the next several days of walking his beloved dog, Maxe, without incident while he has the bandage on his eye, he’ll have come through this experience with flying colors.
