What next???????????

Hi Everyone,

It is me again, just trying to get my frustrations out. OK here goes,

Yesterday I took Pat for a routine eye exam. I of course take my book along and got into my story & never paid any attention to the time he was gone. When he finally comes out I said get we can now go & he said "NO". I looked at him & said what??? He said I just had to have laser surgery on my Right Eye as he now has Glaucoma!!!!! The pressure is to be anywhere from 10-17 per our doctor & his was at 21. So they did the laser surgery right away. His left eye is at a 17 and may need that as well. He goes back in a month to have both checked again. He has inherit this from his Mom who lost one eye and had only a fourth of vision from the other due to glaucoma.

Went for Mom's Care Plan meeting today and she not only has the flu but also has a UTI. So she is not doing to well. I did not get to see her but will give it another week. They said she is not eating to well and has been sleeping a lot. They did not have her weight but will check on that again since she has been sick.

I take Kristine to the doctor next Tues. to get the results of the biopsy, so that will be a very stressful day.

Off to get the two grandson's their flu shot as I sure don't want to get sick. I hope some day I see light at the end of the tunnel.

Thank you all for being my friend, caring and sending prayers my way and listen to my crazy complaining. I don't know what I would do without all of you.
