Out of the blue, I received a “robo” call on my phone from the Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital. I had an appointment scheduled for Friday. Of course, the robot making the call didn’t happen to mention where at the VA my appointment was for.
After I made several calls, I found out it was an eye appointment with an ophthalmologist. Maybe we’re getting somewhere?
After meeting with the eye doc, who confirmed that I have a cataract in my right eye, I now had to get an appointment with the anesthesiologist to ensure I am healthy enough (?) to have the surgery. That appointment is scheduled for 22 April. So, it looks like we’ll be sticking around in neutral longer than we could have ever anticipated. As for the actual surgery date, who knows? This is starting to look like the makings of a disaster for any spring and possibly summer travel plans. :c(
In the mean time, Marti’s cataract surgery with a civilian doctor will be on 18 March. That’s good news, at least one of us will be able to see straight.
The biggest event we’ve had recently was a pancake dinner to raise money for grandson Andrew’s youth group to make a summer camp trip. The pancakes were flowing fast and furious. Marti and daughter Heather enjoyed plates full of pancakes and sausage, as well as nice fruit salads.
To make the dinner more enjoyable, we had a special guest, our son Corey had flown down from NJ to visit Heather’s family. It was good to see him.
Owie got really tired of pancakes, he ate so many he looked like he’d bust at the seams.
We tipped our waiter well to help raise money for the camp trip.
Who was our waiter that did such an excellent job? Why Andrew, of course! He got the best tip, a special hug from his mom.
Life goes on, we’re safe and secure here in South Carolina, even if not much is going on.
