When the OFM awoke this morning his mind was already working on solutions to the already to serious migraine trouble. He was trying to recall the troubles of the last few weeks and whatever else he could think of since things were certainly not going right but had a familiar feeling. Right after breakfast he had a sudden flash of memory and checked when the next eye prescription was likely due.
We are three months late. For the last few years we went to the eye doc right after we went to grandkid land in early spring. For most of his glasses wearing life the OFM has started the bad migraines about the time he is needing a new set of glasses, especially on his left eye. As of today he is about three months late and finally remembered the symptom. The meaner and meaner migraine attacks are typical of the previous part of his life if the exam is put off too long. Well yesterday was a real mean one for sure.
So when the doctor office opened this morning there was the OFM waiting to get an appointment. The doctor reasonably asked the right questions and agreed that a very soon bit of eye work needs to be done. And soon for us is Thursday morning first person in the office.
The OFM must be getting dumber since this is typical of his migraine troubles for over thirty years when it is time for new glasses prescription and he had forgotten.
Now for a wonderful event. A few minutes after we got back to the campsite and were settling in at the window to check computer messages, a very polite knock happens at the door. It is my neighbor from across the street and down a couple of doors. We gave him a big HOWDY and a Come on in. He had noticed that Sierra had seemingly not moved this morning he thought. To us it is fantastic and wonderful that he is paying enough attention to folks here to notice if they are still alive. About a third of the campground are older folks(like the OFM) who live alone and have no people to check on them to see if they are still alive and well or sick and in a bad way for medical help. Well Scott could not tell Sierra had been moved this morning so he came on over to check for medical need. That is a wonderful thing to do as far as we are concerned and puts Scott way up our list of good people to appreciate here on earth.
