As we age, we all experience health issues to one degree or another that require repairs to our bodies. Yesterday, as I sat in the dental chair, looking up at the glaring lights, I was aware that over the last few weeks I had had some experiences in common. The first was a visit to my General Practitioner who discovered I was dehydrated and needed to spend some time on the table, looking up at those lights, whilst re-hydrating.

The second was a three hour surgical procedure transplanting a cornea in my left eye. The bright lights above me assisted the Ophthalmologist with the very tedious procedure. Finally, yesterday was spent, under the lights again, as my wonderful and dear friend, believe it or not dentist, dealt with a notoriously uncomfortable tooth.
