It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Good Follow-up But Kathy’s Floater Big A Concern.

Our Location today is at McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Once again, we would like to Thank You for the words of encouragement for when Kathy has to write the Blog posts. She also thought it was necessary to respond to a few of those comments on yesterday’s Blog. Check them out!

We were able to take some time to have breakfast before leaving at 7:30 this morning. Our destination was the Windsor Eye Institute for my One-Day Follow-up. There was already a lineup waiting for the door to open when we arrived but unlike other Follow-ups they opened the door early. When my name was called the Dr. said it was not uncommon for a burst Blood Vessel when doing these types of surgery as the corner of my eye is all bloodied. When we mentioned that Kathy already had a Floater appear in her Right Eye, we were told to get in to see our Optometrist as soon as we could to have it checked out.

We had other errands to run in the neighbourhood so that’s what we did. We stopped at Windsor Gas and Diesel to find a sign on the door saying they were on Vacation for a week and would be back on Tuesday. At Guardian Storage we picked up quite a handful of Mail. We then stopped at the Pioneer gas station before going to the Credit Union to make changes in our account.

When we finally arrived at our Optometrist’s Office to make an appointment for Kathy. When we explained what the problem was we were told to have a seat that David would see her in a short while. David explained that Floaters that form in the Eye after Cataract Surgery can be dangerous and must be closely monitored. They are caused by the Gel-Type Drops used during the surgery to hold the Eye from moving. It normally dissolves to a liquid and there is no problem. If they form a Floater they could attach themselves from the Eye to the Socket which could result in a tear that could lead to a Retinal Detachment which would require a major surgery to reattach. We were there for over an Hour and a Half before we left with another appointment to see him in a month. He also warned us if any other Floaters appear to come straight in, without delay. (Good thing we didn’t tell him we’d run those errands.)

It was past 11:30 when we left and our early breakfast was gone so we stopped at Wendy’s for lunch. Kathy really enjoys ordering off the Value Menu where we can both eat for $7.19. It’s not only filling but tasty as well.

We went back to the Windsor Rehabilitation Center to visit Vera again. As I was about to buy our Parking Pass a woman told me about buying Parking Tokens for a lot less then we were paying. We had an enjoyable visit until the Occupational Therapist came for Vera’s Therapy around 2:00. Before leaving the Complex, we stopped to get Parking Tokens for $2.50 each that would allow us to park all day compared to us paying $6.00 for Two Hours of parking.

We stopped at the Zehrs Super Store on Walker Road and restocked some of our depleted food stocks.

We finally got Home around 4:00. With a 10-pound weight restriction I could only carry our supplies in One-Bag at a time while Kathy proceeded to put things away.

Minutes later I was back on the phone with the Credit Union. Ever since they updated their On-Line Banking System we have not been able to properly work our accounts. I was on the phone a good Half Hour with David until we were able to see our accounts.

For supper tonight, we had a Store-Bought Pizza that I grilled on our Weber. In Thirty Minutes, it was cooked to perfection but we could only eat Half so guess what we’ll be eating tomorrow. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
