A few months ago I purchased a new meter and I found that the old meter was reading wrong many times and it was causing my way of life to be discouraging. The new meter is right on and I hope it will be as good for a while. I have no doctors for the rest of the year, they will start back during the first quarter of the year. For most part I am sleeping so much better, feeling much better, and I guess more excited that I have been in a while.
In addition to the above I have adjusted my diet and that has been hard for a country person to adjust as I have. I still have some work to do, like slowing the soft drinks diet, to drink more water, and move around more doing something constructive.
As the title indicates I do not what to say until I say it. A few more words of ?? is over for now and I am sure it will revive in the future.
Thinking back a while, I believe that I may have overstated my eye and all of my immediate problems at the time. I am guilty of insecurities in my life. If my overstating a subject was boredom I do apologize. I have moved on, the eye is history, many other things is a history gone by. The second site is not working out well for me, it will become history very soon. I hope to be more colorful in the future, to be more articulate, and more artistic as well (if that is possible). I hope to see you down the road, I can promise a smile and a hello. I will promise no boustrophedon as that would for sure confuse me.
My TV for tonight has been laid to sleep, I am about to move in that direction also. I am getting my locomotion in gear and begin my migration toward that creature called a bed. I call it a creature because it really does not treat me right, but again, I am getting used to that also from so many sources.
I remember the song of many years past, “Locomotion”. I use to enjoy hearing it but I never tried to dance to it.
Yesterday’s doctor visit went well, just some updates and questions, and come back someday. I did find out that the VA clinic that I go to has only one doctor on staff now. He is a dentist. I see a nurse practitioner when I go to the VA clinic. They are good but most of my work is outside the VA.
Ok, today was interesting. I am scheduled for eye surgery, the replacement of the lens in the left eye on the 2nd of January.
I also found from the test today that I am bleeding inside my right eye, I do not think it is really bad because it has before, but again, I am diabetic, doing insulin, and that is where the major concern is for now. I have to see a Retinologist which is located in the same office as my main eye doctor. He will decide what my next steps are and if it can be done with antibiotics or surgery of some type.
It is always something but I will go as far as I can to get back to some kind of life. This just an update on the doctor’s visits.
In the morning I have my eye doctor follow-up. I hope I can see her chart tomorrow. I have been doing pretty good as long as the fall allergies stay away. I use the tears a lot and I shampoo my eyes daily per the doctor.
An update will follow tomorrow.
It was a short visit, I go back in December to be tested for a lens transplant in January. I asked her if she was the one that does it and she said yes. I have confidence in her. She said no babysitter needed just someone to drive me down and back home. She wants to do the left eye first as it is the worse of the two. She said if she did the laser the replacement would have to be done later anyway. No cost to me thanks to my insurance.
