Baseball and eye problem

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

DH and I attended our oldest grandson's first baseball game of the season. Josh is 13, in the 7th grade (how did he get that old?!!!!!!). Josh plays well in a variety of positions, but last night he showed his stuff as catcher, getting a couple players on the other team out. Also, he hit a couple of doubles, and yes, struck out....but that's how the game goes. Just take a look at major baseball players.

The score was tied into the 6th inning, but Josh's team couldn't add to it. In the bottom of the 6th, the other team got another run, so that was the end of the game. I think they only play 6 innings to begin with, but the sun had just set, so there couldn't be more innings last night anyway.

Although Josh (and most of the team) is 13 yr old, they are playing by high school rules (harder) and on the big fields (90 feet between bases). That's good - it'll 'stretch' them and make them better players for the extra effort they'll have to exert.

Josh's younger brother, Tyler, also plays ball, but he's 9 and in a different league. We watched Tyler's first game last Saturday (opening day). Their game was called after 2 hr (the limit for that age) and the score was tied. Still, it's nice to see how much Tyler (too) has improved over last year.

Ok, 'nuf baseball for this blog. emoticon

Last weekend I noticed some problems with my right eye, so I got in to see my ophthalmologist on Monday. He confirmed what I had hoped: namely, that the flashing light and cloudiness were due to the vitreous liquefying and coming loose from my retina. He didn't see any tears, and the retina wasn't detaching, so great news all around. I do have a blood spot on my retina - a burst capillary - so I'll be going back for a check up next month. PRAISE THE LORD for a great report. The flashing light isn't too bad, but I keep trying to clean the cloudiness off my glasses. LOL It'll all clear up one of these days.

I hear my housework calling, and want to do some ST before that, so will close.

    So great to support your grandsons that way at their baseball games. I know it has to mean a lot to them, whether they tell you or not. Hoping that cloudiness clears and the eye reports just get better and better. -Marsha
