"All right," Dr. Seesa said to Kim. "When I take the bandages off, it might take a minute or two for your eyes to adjust."

"Okay," Kim said nervously. All her life, she'd seen things one way, and now it was all going to change. The thought of change scared her, but everyone told her it was for the better.

The doctor slowly unwrapped the bandages from her head and off her eyes. She kept her eyes closed, anxious about what she would see.

"Go ahead. Open them." Dr. Seesa's assistant, Jerry, said.

Her eyelids lifted slower than the bandages that were removed. At first, everything was blurry. Then she became fearful, because everything was the same. A bouquet of flowers sat in front of her, and it was all black and white. But then, color started to pop into view. First the yellow flowers, then the purple, the red, and then her entire view filled with color.

This was not what Kim expected. The colors overwhelmed her senses, and she shut her eyes. She opened them again, but couldn't take it. She just wanted it as it had been. The way she always saw things.

"Put them back on!" she screamed. "Put them back on. I don't want it! I don't want it!"

"Happens nine times outta ten," Dr. Seesa said to Jerry. "They get sensory overload, can't take it, and we have to reverse the surgery. Oh well. Tell Dr. Gray to prep the OR. We'll need it in an hour."

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!


Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
