Marc and Mike drove through the night, picked me up in Uniondale at 2.30 in the morning, and then dropped me at the Eye and Laser Clinic in Port Elizabeth at 6 o'clock. Trevor had set everything up in advance, and the various specialists saw me as soon as they arrived in office. Three days and three operations later, I walked out of the Clinic still in my hiking clothes but with my sight fully restored. What a blessing! A quick lift back to Grahamstown with my good friend Pat, and then I walked through my front gate into my home which I had left a lifetime ago.
And in my pack I still carried a kilo of muesli.
