Who Needs An ‘E’ To Make These Great Boston Medics ‘Heroes’?

by Anura Guruge


To be honest & fair, the ONLY thing funny about this large, colorful banner is that I — Mr. TYPO — saw the typo. Wow.

This would have been I. I can relate.

But, you would have thought SOMEONE would have spotted it. Never mind.

Message still very VALID & appreciated.

This was in Boston.

MGH = Massachusetts General Hospital.

Talking about all the good folks that work at MGH.

Yes, they are all HEROES or even HEROS.

BONUS. I just discovered WHY it was not flagged by Spellcheck. ‘Heros’ is a ‘family of fish native to South America!

I Am Scheduled For Cataract Surgery With Toric Lens Implants — I Am Psyched.

This really could be a game-changer for I. After enjoying fairly decent vision for much of my adult life — thanks to the ‘bionic’ lens I wear on my right eye — I have noticed that my vision has declined in recent years. Yes, the cataract in my right eye was progressing.

Well, I am scheduled, as of today for cataract surgery next month. But, MUCH can change & I have to pass a physical & in my case that is always a challenge.

The doctor, in Boston, plans to implant a toric lens in each eye! Wow. I have keratoconus in my right eye — hence the ‘bionic’ lens. Keratoconus, in essence, is astigmatism taken to its extreme. So, in my right eye, the toric lens is unlikely to give me full correction. I will need a contact as well. But, it should improve vision. I do not have Keratoconus per se in my left eye. I didn’t even think I had much astigmatism. It is my ‘normal’ eye. But, the doctor contends that a toric in that eye will help. So …

I will keep you posted.
