Today my uncle went for an eye operation because of cataract in his eye. While chatting over dinner, I asked him casually for the second time in my entire life, (don't know if it is the 2nd time for his life) whether or not he'd like to work, and he expressed desire to do so. After spending so many years not working and staying at home, it is no wonder that he is bored. Now that he has gotten a whole lot better, I believe it is actually possible for him to do something more with his time.
It is not going to be simple to get employment for a man in his early 40s who has diabetes, blind in one eye and has a leg amputated. I really hope something comes out of this and that he can live the rest of his life reasonably and hopefully independently.
Yes, independence, that's the word.
