5 more days

The eye exam results were all in today. It was all good news in general. The cataracts did not grow a measurable amount in the last year. The optometrist was inclined to believe it could be several more years before the surgical procedure would be needed. Checking every year is the chosen plan.

Then the glaucoma pressure readings had dropped a little so the eye drops are working well. A new retina scan was done and the results showed that the OFM is an old man with retinas in better shape than expected. Another case of just let them be but check them every year.

This morning was an extremely limited walk due to hip and upper leg pain. But apparently there was a massive rain last night and large puddles of water were everywhere so a shortened walk of a mile was about it.

Then the walk attempt this evening turned out to be a short time of feeding hordes of mosquitoes. So the Teams were soon back inside the Castle.

Other than a quick trip to the grocery store the Teams spent most of the day holed up inside the Castle.  That afternoon hour nap made sure it was not wasted time.

Now all we need to do is find some good way of trying to have tooooo much fun tomorrow.
