I have the transplant date set for Oct. 11. I hated to wait that long, but the Dr. is out most of September, so I don’t have a choice. While I was in his office yesterday he performed a small laser procedure that should help me see more clearly in my left eye. Cataract surgery encapsulates a new lens, and the area of encapsulation can often turn cloudy, thus requiring laser removal. I think I have that right. So I am elated to finally have a date set for the surgery.
I’ve been looking for an apartment/house, and visited a site I have looked at previously, featuring four cabins on an old ranch in the Gold Country. I didn’t go to look at them last time because it is so far from Sacramento, but yesterday afternoon decided to take Lady and go for a drive. I was absolutely enchanted with the scenery and terrain, and fell in love with the site of the cabins. I phoned the real estate company which handles the rentals and was told they were all occupied. The web site hadn’t been updated, and the agent was thankful that I pointed it out – by the time I got home the information had been corrected.
Even though I was disappointed I realized it is really too far away from Sacramento considering the required visits to the eye surgeon, as well as those to get the tests recommended by the cardiologist. I am looking for something at about half the distance but can’t find any rentals except at a large RV park in the area. I was put off by the age limitations for RV’s, depending on what type of rental and for how long. I had found a Class C that I might have considered except for the fact that it didn’t make the age limit. I think I’ll just hold off on the RV search and try to find a 6 month lease on a sticks & bricks rental.
I’m off to Monterey tomorrow, where the temps are at least 30 degrees cooler than in Sacramento – mid 60’s. I’m ready for that kind of weather, and have dug out long pants and shirts to wear. The birthday party will begin at about 12:30, and I plan to stay a few days visiting.
I only took one picture last weekend on the camping trip – just after setting up my tent. It was a nice level spot with trees that provided shade during a big part of the day, and right in the path of the moon traveling overhead during the night. As you can see, I didn’t put the rain fly on the tent, and I was able to go to sleep looking at the stars. The moon made it look like daylight during the time it was traveling over.
I took a couple of photos on my trip to Gold Country but was really disappointed. I used the digital camera, couldn’t see a thing in the crappy screen, and the pictures aren’t worth showing. I am soon going to buy a digital camera with a viewfinder.
