Sometimes life takes a different turn.

 Well life does get in the way at times.

Last Monday a week ago as I was getting into bed I passed out. This was the second time the first being the last of March.  Both times while getting into bed.  Both times Nancy shaking me to wake me up.
Only this time I had slight pain in my chest.  We waited a half an hour then called the ambulance, which took me to the hospital.  After checking me with a blood pressure of 211/95, then an EKG and some more test.  No need to go over all the test.

Bottom line was I had to have a defibrillator implant done on Thursday.  So I guess you might say my heart short circuited out.

Thanks for stopping by and do have a great day

Basketball is over

Yeah, basketball is over!  I've been watching the NBA and usually I just watch it during the play-offs.

This past week end I was watching The US Golf tournament.   I like golf and I even tried it one time and it did not interest me at the time.

I'm going to have to get out more because I have been sitting around to much and my body is telling me that I need to move more.  I have been going to the store for groceries, but they are only short trips and also It is a quick trip in and out.

So, this week I will try to do better.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Out a little.

 Nancy worked up enough nerve to get out of the house yesterday in that she wanted to get her haircut.

                                                                       
 As you can see it was a beautiful day.   She goes to the Great Clips in this strip mall which is only a mile and a half from the house. 

                                               

Today I ventured out a bit as I was wanting to see what the new Habitat Restore had that I might need.
I did not get anything for myself, but I did find a nice bar stool for Nancy, that she could sit on while doing dishes at the kitchen sink. 

The other day I was talking about the couple of air-conditioners that went out.
It seems that was not the only thing that went on the blink.  I had to buy a new phone, oh it was working but, it would randomly call the difference people that are on my contact list.
Also, a couple of times I would be out shopping in the store and it would start playing music.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Money, Money

 OK, I'm still around and still more or less covered up with what I've been doing.  I guess I kind of let it get to me.

Nancy and I was back to the Eye Institute to get a follow up on how our eyes were after the laser surgery.
Nancy said she could not see very well out of one eye, but the doctor said he couldn't see anything wrony with her eyes. So, what does she do?
I was seeing really good out of both eyes, but that day my eyes were blurry.  Mybe it was the eye drops they put in my eyes, who knows?
Anyway yester day Nancy called the Eye Institute and told them we forgot to pickup our prescriptions for glasses. They told her I would have to come in to have the refraction done on mine before they good get the prescription?   So it was finished up, with Nancy's eyes at 20/40 and I was surprised mine were 20/30.

The cars a/c is worked after getting the coil evaporating coil installed but my dash is a mess.  The sun made the dash brittle so when they were taking it loose it fell into pieces. At least Nancy has her air-condition.

Now to the motor home where I had to get a new a/c unit for the worn out a/c.  So after money, money we have cold air blowing again.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Good vision again.

 Monday it was to the Florida Eye Institute to have laser surgery on the left eye to have the edema burned off that was partially covering the pupil.
I want to tell you this was the way I supposed to see after having the cataract surgery, but I did not.
The doctor that checked my eyes after the cataract surgery follow up appointment saw the problems with my eyes.
Anyway, I'm very satisfied now with my vision even though the vision in the left eye I'm seeing double, but glasses will take care of that.

Yesterday, I spent part of the day at Pep Boys having them changing the fan motor on the car.  The reason for that was the old one burned up and we sure need the a/c this time of year.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Happy Mothers Day

 Wish all you mothers a very happy day on the day set aside for you. You people that still have your mothers living do go to see them or call them it will mean a lot to them.

Friday was another day of going to the storage yard to clean on the motorhome.  This time it was to wash the front and rear caps as there was green pollen and dirt on it.
Since there was no water at the storage yard to use, I had to use water out of the motorhome tank which holds 67 gallons, that is more than enough. 
Even though it did not come clean, it will need some deep cleaning to look better. 

Tomorrow will be another day to do the eye surgery, this time on my left eye. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Seeing much better

 Monday Nancy and I was at the Florida Eye Institute for our scheduled appointment to have the Laser Surgery.
It was for the growth in our eyes after the cataract surgery that grows over the pupil making it blurry just the same as the cataract's.  It sounds like a big deal but only takes about five mintues to complete and not painful.

I could tell right away it really did help doing the right eye that was giving me trouble about reading and watching tv.  The doctor will do my left eye this coming Monday.

Nancy on the other hand did not fair as well as she said it did not help her sight.  She will have to get the doctor to check her eyes again to see what the problem is.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
