Two Eyes

 


Adventure Location: Decatur, Al

Today's Date: 8-29-2022



This morning was a step forward on recovery. The OFM woke up and headed for the necessity room and when he turned on the light he realized he had both eyes open seeing the lavatory right in front of him.

What is so special is that he only had ONE image in his sight. In reality there was still two but they were very close to aligned for a change. On top of that we were able to use the right eye ALL day instead of having to close it frequently. Even when we drove to lunch we were able to use the right eye normally. That was a major change for the good. But we did restrain from trying it out on a run on the highway until we have a day of practice. And it did get tired about 1800 and we had a nice nap to give it and the OFM some rebuild time.



OK back to morning. After breakfast we carry trash out to the dumpsters just to get some limbering done on the ancient body we are stuck with. It was such an exciting morning with two eyes for the first time in six days we went on a bit of a walk on the smooth hiking path near the campground.

This is the remains of a pine cone after the squirrels have eaten the goodies from it. It sounds like a big rock when it hits the roof of the Castle from way up in the tall trees.

The morning was cool and beautiful. Here is a picture of the nice path and the gorgeous sky we had,



There was even white flowers and berries of several colors to entertain us on the walk. With all the short walks we took today the OFM is guessing we got in nearly a mile. We are being careful to not cause any more blood vessels to leak in the OFM's eyeball.



After the long nap this afternoon the OFM tried out some more coloring now that two eyes were working and it worked pretty good.





Tomorrow morning about 0830 will be seven days since the disaster happened. And it has been very educational in many ways but definitely not a good way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
