Family Lib Prfday, Moy 18, WZ 9 JL, JtJ, By JOANNE AND Lf!W KOCH Lew was groping Ml way to the bed, both eyes patched. It wis nothing lerku*. Just a few scratches on the one cornea that he had given himself during the night. But the doctor wanted to be sure it healed quickly and completely. What happened during that one day of blindness was funny and frightening, , There was nothing for Lew to do but lie in bed, fantasies of prolonged disability mushrooming in the darkness. I thought Chinese food would break up the monotony. In his anxiety Lew consumed two egg rolls, eight bar* becded ribs, three helpings of beef with pea pods, two shrimp egg foo yong, two helpings of pork fried rice, a helping of chicken chow mein with Chinese noodles and one fortune cookie. The children played a game of guess the object with him. Rachel finally stumped him with a stuffed Heffalump Lisa offered to read to him. Touched and anxious for the diversion, he asked her what book she would read. "The Story Of Helen Keller/' Lisa announced proudly. "She was deaf too, Daddy." But the novelty of Daddy's disability soon wore off. Rachel had enjoyed playing nurse, but now she wondered if Daddy could still take her to the zoo on Saturday. List worried about how We could go to the pancake house on Sunday with Dad like this. "It's going to be awfully messy." - And after I had brought Lew his fifth glass of ice water, turned the radio on and off for the third time and helped him light his last cigarette of the night — striving desperately to avoid taking a puff after six months of abstention — I became irritable and depressed at the thought of possible complications. Both patches came off the next day. The eye was completely healed. The cold wind which had sent a shudder through our bones had passed over. But it had at least awakened us up to our connection with those for whom the cold wind remains.
