Hi Everyone, I saw my eye surgeon and I am seeing double because I have a, “lazy eye,” along with the cataract. Apparently, my left eye cannot keep up with my right eye. It lags behind. Sort of how my brain doesn’t always keep up with my mouth. Lol It is kind of disconcerting to see cars on top of each other – the same car, I mean.
This photo by the Marine Corps is called, “Double Vision.” It is kind of like that, only not so faded.
I’m very happy it wasn’t a mini-stroke. But I’m still going to continue taking a low-dose aspirin every day. Old people like me are supposed to do that; so says the teeny-bopper-emergency doctor.
My mom is in the rehabilitation facility again, but she is refusing to exercise. She says all she wants to do is stay in bed and sleep. I’m afraid she is depressed, but I have to admire her spunk in saying a big “No” every time they try to get her to exercise. I don’t blame her at all. She is 90 yrs. old and just wants to rest. I think she will be booted out soon for insubordination. Lol Well, then she will be in a beautiful nursing home and I’ll be seeing her almost every day, just like now. I hope she will like it once she is there.
I asked her nurse to get her a psych consult to see if they can help her with depression. The only other time I’ve seen her depressed was when my brother died in 1973. She is eating, but not much. I read to her and buy her chocolate bars, and she likes that. I actually got her to go outside for a “wheelchair bocce” game today. She wouldn’t play, but she did say she enjoyed watching the others play. This was a good sign. They served ice cream and lemonade afterwards. The people at this place have been very kind since we have come back.
Meanwhile, back in the spiritual realm, God has been a rock, a strong tower, my shield and sword. I have found shelter under the shadow of his wings. I don’t fear evil, for he is with me. His rod and his staff comfort me. The Bible does not lie. As long as we pour out our hearts to him, all the promises of his comfort and strength come true.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
