Last week Jimmy made himself an appointment to see his eye doctor. He had noticed, that all of a sudden, he was having trouble seeing things clearly. Of course, we thought it was just time for a new prescription of contacts…it had been one year.
Last Friday he went for his eye exam and the doctor told him that he didn’t want to prescribe anything new until he saw another doctor…an eye surgeon. Jimmy has a cataract in his left eye and he has a referral to see Dr. E on Monday, Sept. 11th. The reason I’m calling this doctor, Dr.E is because I can’t remember his name, at the moment and it’s really not that important to my post.
What will be important is what his recommendation will be. We are hoping for a quick surgery to remove the cataract and restore his eyesight, but we just have to wait to see what this surgeon has to say.
On another note…This is day 6 of rainy weather. Yesterday I started to feel a slight chill in the air and today it’s cold outside…if you’re wearing shorts and a t-shirt. One nice thing about it, is that we have turned off the air conditioning and opened the windows for some nice fresh air. What I didn’t anticipate was that a tomcat would try to get in through the window screens. All I was expecting was a breeze of cool air flowing thru the house…NOT Ferbie trying to tear down the screen to get inside. Thank God, he finally gave up and went away!
Jimmy & I are spending a quiet weekend at home for the Labor Day holidays. We try not to go anywhere on holidays…it’s just too crowded on the roads, and we have all the time in the world, since we are both retired that we don’t have to travel on these days.
Of course you probably noticed in the previous post that Cucoo & Snail took off with Maria, the little blue car with the camper, for the holiday weekend. I’m sure they’ll have a great time camping. It’s nice to see Cucoo get out and have fun. On Wednesday he is meeting some bloggers in Lexington and he’s so excited….I hope he remembered to take his camera with him.
Everyone...have a nice weekend and be safe!
