I did make the adventure to the next stage of an interest of mine. Well, before I express my opinion of my internet adventure of which I write, let me say the rain, however, lite is still rain so I invested my time to YouTube’s photographic section and had a good and long presentation of landscape photography. It was a good presentation in many parts and descriptions until the presenter started to tear up over the views. They were awesome views of different parts of the world. I am interested in that kind of art and also that of macro-photography of flowers, insects, and other views. So yes, I did go to YouTube for a while today.
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.
I moved to the bed instead of the recliner. Wow, that was a painful decision. It is 4:35 AM EST now and I am up, about, and trying to recover from some of the pain. A word of advice, if you are young stay young, if you are old as I then your damage has already about you. I am up now and I shall go on about my day remembering how it was and how it is today. I will not feel sorry for myself, nor will I complain but I will just keep on keeping on until father time reminds that my day is in the past, not today.
The bicycle use to be, back in the day, a means for young people to get around, to operate a paper delivery service, to make a trip to the grocery to pick up some items for dinner and return home, and so many other uses. I remember it well as I did all of the above, weather was not an option.
A few years I invested in a bicycle with gears and other things that I knew nothing about. The seat, for sure, was to small for my body. I purchased it because I wanted to save, and exercise all at the same time, when I completed my trip, I am not sure if I gave it away or what but it was a one trip operation.
I look around and I do not see kids doing the paper delivery service for income any more, but again they have many laws against it also. Sad but true.
The bicycle the way of the past, a remembrance.
I am first in line on the 12th of September for the surgeries on both of the lower eyelids. It is something to do with a drainage channel of the tear ducts. I have to be at the Hospital by 6am on that morning and I should be out by 9am. Then on the 26th I will be getting the upper eyelids raised so I can see better. I guess I am ready for both events.
