I have had many walks along this beach and no doubt will continue them during the next few months that we will spend here. We are thinking we'll be around until the first part of May.
While here, I had a followup appointment with the retina specialist. He liked the looks of things and said I should go see the cataract specialist to see if I should do that surgery now or get a new prescription.
He recommended surgery so that is what I did.
This amazing journey through this segment of the high tech medical field continues. Cataract surgery looked like this for me as I waited. About 15 minutes after this I was done. Now 10 days later -- results are terrific. I am SO thankful. I have 20/30 eyesight now and in about a month when I get new glasses, it could get even better.
Seven months ago I could not tell the nurse how many fingers she was holding up. Now the prospects are good for better than 20/30 eyesight. -- Amazing!
The real reason we are here in Virginia Beach is to be grandparents! That is one special job description. We love the whole idea and like spending time with Brooks and Kelly during the daytime.
He is one busy fella and cute as he can be. Nothing makes his day more than playing outside!
He likes running around and teasing Lennon (black/white dog) his bone.
He does like kicking the soccer ball, or raking through his garden - he can spend hours in the yard every day when it is not raining.
Other times he takes a break and drinks a smoothie. And he points to the airplanes in the sky that he can hear when they take off.
I have read a number of books over the past few weeks and and currently enjoying one on Lincoln "Team of Rivals" and one of local history, "Virginia Beach, Then and Now".
That's about it for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles. Sort of a 'day in the life' post of what we've been up to. Hope you are having a wonderful week!
