Today, the Friday before

Today, the Friday before Christmas and all is complete, shopping all done for me, and as I move forward into a new year I so hope for changes and improvements to my life.  I know of nothing that I want or need today other than improvement in life and to wake a few more days.  This represents my wishes for the coming years ahead.

Today, the Friday before…?

A visit today

I made my last visit today to the VA nutritionist, not that she was bad, but I understand what she wants from me and I am trying to provide it.  Until I get it down and the numbers speak for themselves I do not want to waste her time every six to eight months.  I will work on my needs and when I run into a snag and fall down I will call her back,  I will let her help someone else.

A visit today to my VA nutritionist.

WOW, what am I

  • I wake at 4:40 AM, my routine begins
  • I leave home at 5:30 AM to eat
  • At 5:54 AM I begin my coffee routine and enjoying the company around me
  • Some friends come and go while I am there
  • At 8:30 AM, my friend the cook sits beside me and we talk as she eats
  • I depart the facility at about 9:05 AM heading home
  • I arrive home, post some verbiage on WordPress
  • I complete my second phase of the routine at 10:04 AM
  • I sit at the computer, drowsy, and move to the recliner
  • I hear a knock at the door at 1:09 PM UPS delivery
  • WOW, What am I? Who am I? Why am I?
  • Awake now, a second awakening, a second life for today.

Locomotion

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.

The doctors

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.
