Laser Heart Surgery

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/singles/article/laser_heart_surgery_20050527

My only decent pair of glasses broke en route from Los Angeles to Israel, and I took it as a sign -- it was time to for corrective laser surgery, a.k.a. LASIK. "Make sure on the day of surgery someone comes with you," the Israeli receptionist said to me after I set my appointment. Great. Who would I call on to come with me? If I lived in Los Angeles, someone in my family would have shepherded me. But I wasn't comfortable asking my family in Israel to escort me.
