''WH Y ME''

Luckily the doctor had announced that I would only be blind in my right eye. If I wasn't about to have surgery for the first time in my life, I would have jumped up with as much joy as somone winning the lottery. I don't remember how long the surgery took or if it even hurt. I do remember waking up to find a big, white, square shaped patch covering my eye.
