That’s what I am right now, as I just put the drops in my eyes for the last time today. One solution is used 3x a day and the other is 4x a day, so I write it all down when I use them so I can keep track. In don’t mind putting drops in my eyes, but getting used to this schedule is a big pain, and to add to the confusion, one solution is used in both eyes and the other in just one eye.
I finally broke down and got myself a very small propane grill this afternoon. I didn’t want to do it because I love grilling over charcoal, but of course I can’t have the flames when lighting up on my small patio. I’ll appreciate not having to cook indoors when the weather gets hot. So far my apartment stays cold even when it’s warm outside, so I have no idea what the summer will be like. Anything over 100F is sizzling, indoors or out! This apartment is oriented nicely to avoid the heat-of-the-day-sun, although the price I pay is not having enough daylight to suit me. Can’t win.
The forecast for the next two days is heavy rain – in fact the equivalent of April’s rain is supposed to fall in those two days. I hope my RV doesn’t leak. If it isn’t too bad in the morning I need to make another trip back for the vacuum cleaner, which I forgot to retrieve the last time I was there. I won’t be able to lift it for several days after surgery, and my carpet is in great need of vacuuming. While I’m at it I can get the small propane cannisters to use with my new grill.
Mike came home from the hospital today. He could have stayed an extra day but says he’ll feel better being up and about. He told me the hospital bed bothers his back the most, followed by sitting in a chair, so he wanted to get home where he has more room to move around.
I’m getting a little anxious about my own surgery. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, just pre-op jitters, and it will probably be into high gear by Monday. I’ll be glad when it is behind me. By the way, I wasn’t hurt at all in my clumsy fall yesterday. No bruises and no pain except when I press on the area that hit the ground first. I know the answer to that – just don’t press on it!
