New Glasses, Page 2

I was home-schooled so I didn’t have lunch money to save.

At this time in American history, Covergirl was making frames for teenage girls. They advertised them in seventeen. They were not covered by Medicaid. I told myself they were too small for me anyway. Because, you know, my head is so large.

    The worst is when our grand-daughter needed corrective surgery on each of her eyes. The first time wasn’t to bad and we failed to comprehend how traumatized she was by that experience.

    Then when the time came for the second operation. I can still remember her screaming as they prepped her for surgery. It traumatized both of us.

    I admire the medical and emergency professionals who have the fortitude to face these situations every day and the endurance to get the job done.
