Had my annual diabetic eye exam today.
Still blurry as I type this.
No major change in prescription but there are
tiny cataracts in both eyes (yay, old age!).
I asked if there was any way to slow down the
growth and the dr. said "vitamin C and sun glasses".
I can do that. See ya next year.
Carol is doing better since they stopped the chemo drug
and are only giving her Herceptin for now. As long as
the cancer doesn't start spreading, they'll keep her on
that. Maybe a year or longer.
She still has swelling in the left arm from lymphedema, so
I'll continue to wrap her hand and arm every day.
All her fingernails are gone and now her toenails are
starting to fall off. Her feet and ankles stay swollen most
of the time. Steroids and water pills help some but not
All the years of advancements in science and it is still
mostly trial and error. Hit or miss.
At least her energy level is better. She's getting antsy to
be able to get out on her own.
I don't blame her a bit.
