After getting here on Wednesday-thank you again Dave and Nancy- we just took it easy on Thursday but did get in to see my Cardiologist where I got a generally good report. He gave me another prescription which should lower my blood pressure, always a good thing, and we'll see how that goes.
Friday we went to the Ophthalmologist to see what is the matter with my right eye. They ran some tests on me and determined that I have something called Third Nerve Palsy which allows my right eye to not focus properly. This condition, long with my cataracts, make seeing clearly difficult and driving impossible. I already knew that but didn't know what it was called, so I know what the problem is. The bad thing is, it is not treatable and must run its course. Dr. Millstein did say that I need to move my cataract surgery up and we will do that next week.
Saturday was a much better day! We had not told Kim and the boys that we had returned, so we cooked up scheme to meet them when they went our for Mothers Day. We included Tyler because he could keep a secret and it went off very well. We met them at the Topwater Grill in San Leon and took her completely by surprise. She said that when she stepped out of the car, she thought she saw her Mom but thought that she had talked to her earlier this morning from Arkansas. She had no idea that we were returning. We had a great time visiting with them and I ran into Charles Totty, a guy that I worked with early in my career in La Marque.
This morning, I told Stella that I would take her to one of her favorites, Kelly's Country Cookin' for breakfast. Cameron couldn't make it because he had plans with his girlfriend but we had a great meal and good conversation with them. We're looking forward to more good times with many friends and family while down here getting me repaired.
It is very hard for me to write this, so there may be some times when you don't hear too much from me until this eye thing gets fixed, but please bear with me.
