She can spot an antique at 100 m but she can't see the computer screen

Ellen's first cataract surgery was yesterday and went well. Followup was today-her vision was 20/25 in the treated eye. That eye had been so bad they had to call it 20/400 because she couldn't see the biggest line on the chart. So, things look remarkably improved at 20 feet and beyond. She can't see up close to use the computer or to stitch, but she knows this will be fixed with glasses later. Next eye in two weeks. -Tom

I am so glad Tom please give her my love and tell her I'm sorry I didn't put anything on yesterday's mailing but tell her from me that she should keep the Sampler as a surprise. I don't know what anybody else said.
