The day was very long but a very good outcome so the hours were worth it.

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

It is almost mid night we spend almost all day 6 hours in another city for my acupuncture and my eye examination and re assessment.

The eye Dr was pleased with the improvement and has reduced the steroids so I feel good about that I have to use the drops every 4 hours now. We were all surprised how well i can read the eye chart. I might still need my reading glasses I recently bought so I could read my senior college nutrition book. The smallest print in that book. I would never have chosen it. I might look out for it at the library tomorrow who knows if there is a hard cover till I take a look.

I am ready for bed and medication for the eye is over due,
Thanks for the great support once again. The anxiety is not so overpowering as it was over the weekend. I am so happy it is hopefully be behind me. Pat in Maine.

    Dear Pat,

Congratulations on your eye's being a lot better. You did it. I can just imagine what you had to go through. I am so happy for you that your eye's have gotten so much better. Now it should be only heading in a great direction.

I am sorry that you had to stay there being so far from home But I know that it had to get done.

Hope that you are getting enough rest and sleep. I can imaging that you had a lot of not sleeping very much. I have been doing that too. I barely get 3 to 4 hours of sleep a night. I do not take afternoon naps. I barely get to really function during the day.

Hope all goes good at the eye doctor's. Best wishes to you.

Have a good night.

Love Dot
