I'm not winking at you

If you are long-time friend or regular reader of dan's hole in the wall, you know that I have a rare eye condition, one that requires a highly specialized contact lens that is about the size of a hubcap. Monday, that contact popped out while I was cleaning up following some yard work. It then proceeded to crawl under my foot, at which time I stepped on it, breaking it into lots of tiny pieces.

I called the corneal specialist, the only one in the state of Washington capable of dealing with
my cornea. Turns out he retired in January.

But, a new contact is on order, and the doctor is willing to see me one last time, to "hand me off" to the new specialist, I suppose. So hopefully all will be back to normal soon.

In the meantime, I'm pretty much blind in my left eye. So if it seems I'm ignoring you, or that I'm winking at you, or if I mix up a bunch of words when following my sermon notes tomorrow morning, it's probably just that I can't see anything.
