It was my mother's birthday yesterday. When I called she calmly announces that she's going in for cataract surgery on Thursday. Nice of her to tell me wasn't it? So today I've been reading up on cataracts and on the surgical procedure. The thing that shocked me was it doesn't use lasers. Ah well, something else to worry about I guess.

Its weird, it brings home the fact of age. Both my parents are retired now, well dad is supposed to be, but he still helps my brother-in-law out fitting windows, much to my mother's disgust. Ah well, at 30 I'm half way there, except my myopia is a lot worse than my mothers. Now there's something to worry about as well.
