We’ve been sitting here at our South Carolina “home” since 1 December (an new record for us) and were looking to roll out in February for warmer destinations in Florida. We were staying longer to get our medical check ups and eye appointments out of the way.
Yesterday, I had a visit to the Veterans Administration Hospital (VA) for an eye exam. Seems my prescription needed an update as my right eye was a little blurry.
A new set of glasses was not in the cards, I have an early onset cataract in the eye. This is not what we expected.
Now we’re going to have to stay here longer. The VA will schedule me an appointment with an ophthalmologist to have them re-check the eye and then after that schedule surgery. Not a big deal, except that it takes weeks to get appointments. I had to wait over a month for this one.
The one drawback with the VA is you have no control over appointments, they schedule them for you and you have no input as to when. If we took off now for Key West, with my luck, I’d get an appointment as soon as we arrived and would have to high tail it back. So, for now it’s the smarter thing to remain in place and wait until all the eye issues are resolved.
I’m glad that it will be taken care of at no cost to me, so I’ve got no room to complain. Plus, there are many more geocaches to find so we’ll have more time with our grandsons. That’s always a good thing :c)
