A message from at 12:10pm about Cornea Transplant, Jobs, Peter. Comments Off.

On May 30, I received a cornea transplant in my left eye. This was done to replace the clouded cornea which resulted from my first eye surgery 15 years ago.

Recovery is going well. Some vision has been restored, but not much… yet. The full extent of how much vision will be restored won’t be known for about a year. It’s still very sensitive to light, so I’ve regularly broken the fashion faux pas of wearing sunglasses indoors to fit my comfort. As of right now I’m on doctor’s orders to remain out of the swimming pool until further notice. Unfortunately, swimming is my preferred method of exercise.

In other news, the job hunt is going well. I will be teaching 6th graders (7th graders-to-be) over the summer in Madison. I am still looking for a full-time position in the fall, and have already completed a couple interviews. Next up is completing more application forms, resumes, coverletters, and interviews.
