Flies in His Eyes

My kindergartners sing a song called, “Flick a Fly.” There is a line in it that goes, “Flies in your eyes will drive you crazy! Flick that fly away!”

On a Monday this month, B had successful cataract surgery in one eye. A week later, he went back and had the other eye lasered to clear up the lens in it. Since then he has had floaters in that eye. He said at first he thought it was small flies and he batted at them.

Which brings to mind another song, “Shoo, Fly! Don’t Bother Me!”

Yesterday B said, “At least they aren’t fireflies and keep me awake at night!”

Today, the floaters are gone ---and the flies have flown away, too.

Thank goodness!
