Oh, the Floaters, too!


I suppose “floaters” could also refer to the steatorrhea, but in this case, not. A few weeks ago, I started getting little black dots that I could only see with my left eye. The dots would move with my eye (so, since they were off-center, whenever I tried to look right at one, it would scoot out of the way).

Went to an ophthalmologist who checked out my eyes and told me I have detached vitreous of the left eye, which is a normal age-related degeneration. The main concern with them is that the retina could tear when the vitreous detached, but I was spared that complication. Prognosis: It will never really go away, but will become easier and easier to ignore. As I did in my previous post.

Just saw the neighbor who took my universal gym to the door…took him about 90 minutes to disassemble it. He looked ready for a nap. Now, waiting for the appliances to show up…they gave me a time window of 11:30AM to 3:30PM. Well, sitting here, now, I’m about halfway through that window and they are not here, yet. But, the only thing complicated to install should be the overhead microwave, since I don’t have one of those right now. The other appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher, oven) should be slide-in, plug-in, connect to existing water and drain connections, and done.

Supposed to go to dinner with friends at Reata, tonight. Surely appliances will be completed by 6:30 so I have time to not rush. Maybe even a nap while I wait. Yes, a nap sounds pretty good. Listening to the guy doing all that work disassembling the gym has really worn me out.
