first Saturday after surgery

My cold is still hanging on, and I'm not sleeping very well. Hopefully tonight...? Coughing is putting a lot of strain on my eye, and I'm having some pain. But on the other hand, I saw food on my plate today! Mom made chocolate chip pancakes, and I could see them. When I had gotten done eating, I also discovered I could see where the syrup and melted chocolate was because it was a different color from the plate.

My eyes are getting tired very quickly. I suspect part of that has to do with being sick and part of it has to do with looking at things being a bit overwhelming.

The ravens were camped out in our trees all day yesterday. Today they're probably about a block or two away. I can still hear them.
