First I had a comprehensive eye test by the nursing assistant; she was so wonderful; listening to my fears, medical history and all. So sad to say, I can't remember her name, I must remedy that. I was so caught up in my own thoughts and fears. She was down to earth and calmed my negative feelings so well I felt a bit of calm coming over myself. After my tests which showed my pressure was different (less) than the day before I waited till my eyes dilated for the next portion of my tests. Apparently eye pressure can change just like blood pressure changes on different days and different times. Next I met the doctor; he looked into the back of my eyes at the optic nerves which will show any potential damage from glaucoma.
Then I had retinal photographs taken of the back of my eye further check for any damage and to establish a baseline for the future. I have to go back in three months for more tests and to see if any changes have occurred. After checking with the doctor, we plan to leave on our trip next week and return in the early Fall. I left feeling a whole lot better about my eyes. I may stop along the way and have someone else check my eye pressures just to assuage my worries.
After we left we went to the grocery store to pick up a few items. Since my eyes were dilated Gary did the shopping while I waited in the car. On the windshield a small green frog hopped up from beneath the cowl where the wind shield wipers are housed. I jumped out of the car and captured him and put him at the base of a pine tree.
Next we went to Shelly's Fish Market in Homosassa and got some fresh fish to eat for the week. When we got our ice chest out of the back of Gary's truck we saw a tiny green frog in the back. Gary got him out of the truck and put him beside a tree. We drove around and paid a few bills and headed back to our RV at the campground. We sat outside to relax a little and review the day's events. I asked Gary to get my lawn chair out of the truck and he pulled it out. On the side of the chair was another green frog resting. I caught him and put him at the base of an oak tree near our RV.
It just so happens here on the Gulf Cost we're expecting lots of rain and winds today and tomorrow from tropical storm Andrea. We've battened down the hatches and hopefully we'll wade through the approaching storm as we sit on the banks of the Withlachoochee River (probably not the best location with a risk of flooding). We hope to leave next week on our trip. More later. (images borrowed from the net) Thanks for reading and for all your comments..
