We had Drs most of the day.

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Alas DH eye is stil too scratched to see the retina.

We were there for three hours. They could not see anything since the cornea is still so scratched up.

DH eye just runs and he blinks all the time. I did notice it looks less blood shot . They tried to scan the macular but that too was obscured. DH is in good spirits and he can see in the distance, Our Dr. will be back and he has to be seen by him to decide what is going on.
Almost midnight . It has been a long day again. The Wi-Fi was not available today. I took my tablet and could do nothing, Pat in Maine.

The day was mostly spent at home. We wanted it that way.

Monday, October 20, 2014

I was supposed to go to our Senior college but after a difficult night because DH decided his BiPap machine was pressing on his eye.
He wears a full face mask for sleep apnea. He rarely snores but without his machine he stops breathing so I stop sleeping.

Did that for many years and he has used C-Pap and Bi-Pap since it was developed. 20 years or more easily.

I did make sure I had the leftover goodies packed away. We sometimes take them to the student center and hand them out. They come in Tins so they keep for a very long time.
Afterwards we just stayed home and tried to watch a movie. DH still cannot see anything close up. I hope we have answers tomorrow.

He seems to take everything in his stride, he rarely complains. It has been like that for 51 years so he sure is a keeper.

I went and bought a Fit Bit but I cannot get to the apps. There are no instructions.
I did see on-line the fit bits are the same price. I now know L.L. Bean has them the same price as KOHL's . The Discount does not apply so I want to drive down to Freeport and buy another one but they will explain everything to me. I plan to take my tablet with me and with any luck I will have it all set up for me.

I HOPE SO!, I will let you know.

Tonight DH watched mystery and I sat with him. He said he can make out just some fuzzy images. I reminded him he can see with the peripheral vision. I think he is getting better looking straight but find your side vision.
Thanks Pat in Main.

    Gentle quiet days are good at times. I keep praying for you and yours and for Fred's eyes to be healed. I've recently learned that St. Lucy is the patron saint of good eye sight so I've started to ask her to petition the Lord with me for Fred and my brother. Hoping for something positive from the eye doctor.
Take deep breaths, drive carefully and take care of yourself.
Love and prayers

    I hope you get the answers to Fred's eye problem. That must be so frustrating for you both. Prayers that it will get better for him. Did the eye injections help at all?

And how scary is it when they stop breathing while they are sleeping? My husband does that very infrequently. Funny I can sleep right next to him and not hear him snoring but I am instantly awake if I sense he has stopped breathing. When the kids were younger and we would be on vacation, they would wake me up to make hubby stop snoring. They heard him, I did not. You could drop a bomb on me while I am sleeping and I would not hear it.

My thoughts and prayers for both of you today!!!!

A very long day. It turned out well. EXCEPT for the Minivan.

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Just about the same as yesterday. DH could not go there he still can not see in short distances.
I had to pack the minivan. I had to back up to the door of the Auditorium and after 71 years' I had a car accident..

My Driver side mirror had been moved just a bit. The building has a wall across from the Auditorium. The wall is about 40 inches high. A double brick wall but it was about 40 inches high.
My minivan has tinted black shield. I always look out of the side mirror.

The angle as I backed up the incline reflected above the wall. I went up slowly and ""BANG"" the rear bumper broke open on the side. Plastic bumper split real good. But I had to get the van parked there to empty the contents.

Rest of the day was long and busy. DH was supposed to help because we are new we wanted to learn ourselves first it is a bog job as volunteers.

DH had to stay home. I had done all the planning and it all came out great.
Refreshments. Apple cider-local - GREAT!!
Pretzels and sugar free cookies and candies. They had water, some drank the cider it is pure Apple juice . I made a big label on both sides telling people it was sugar free.

I centered the tables and spaced them in the middle of a long corridor. It worked well people could go up both sides and still get across the hall s between tables. I used pumpkins and Leaves on the table and the napkins all fall colors.

I had a great time. DH was to keep his eyes shut as much a he can, I was calming my mind by playing with the napkins to make patterns. When people asked to help me I politely replied I am calming my stress level and they left me alone.

There were many compliments. I could never dress up a table like those tables since we have a small house so I went to town on t and calmed my mind.

The concert was good. Not the usual full house but the good weather probably people were leaf peeping. It was good though. Folk Singers they are "CASTLEBAY" Wife has a harp and the husband plays many instruments. Their voices are nice to listen to just a pleasant after noon.

I had lots of help to re-pack the minivan. I keep everything at the house .

REMEMBER my space problem.

I took on the committee because I like to mess with food.
I went home and asked if he was ready to meet our friends at the 99 and he wanted to go.
There were 6 of us and DH had a nice time. He had to wear Dark glasses and his eyes were tearing all the time. Our friends commented to me that his eye is swollen. We shall see what happens by morning,

I might have to bug the Drs. office to be seen tomorrow instead of Tuesday. I will if I have to.
My DH is precious to me. Thanks for listening. Pat in Maine.

    Whoa, I missed this blog my dear friend. I hope it's not too much to get the mini van fixed. It must have been the day for fender benders. My eldest son rear ended someone who stopped suddenly for an accident, he had a load of logs he took from my yard and the car didn't stop fast enough.
So glad that the refreshments went over well and that you had a chance to use your creativity. I'm sure it was so lovely.
Fred and you continue to be in my prayers.

DH was so restless he insisted he do the dishes.

Saturday, October 18, 2014

I have been out a lot today but not a nice brisk walk. I had to buy drinks for the concert.
All gallons and my DH usually carries them. There are 16 gallons to carry in tomorrow. I found an old crate when I got home so that will be a help.

Since the senior college does draw from older people but we do have some children and students from the Music department.

Our refreshments are across the board. I wince when i put out cookies galore. The grapes were very ripe and more expensive than usual. I substituted pretzels.

It usually is a big following for Castle Bay. So far the ticket sales are not going well.
I suspect this beautiful weather for the last few days has been apple picking and still leaf peeping.

I do try to accommodate people who want or need diet foods.

I am going to put the first table in the hallway as the Sugar free table. I bought sugar free food but I cringe when I read the labels.
I do have gallons of water and cider and cranberry juice, today was warm till it deluged with rain. It actually caused the roads to steam, it looked weird. Being warm will make the drinks too warm. I love my drinks at room temperature but that is the my generation and my British Up bringing. There were no refrigerators and no-one wanted to have ice. We do know the homes are installing refrigerators and so all iced, are drinks.
I am concerned but It is what it is. I am doing my best and hoping to get this first time over with. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon

    I always like to spend a lot of time outside too when I know that the weather won't hold for very long. You're probably correct in assuming that people are out and about and not thinking of concerts and indoor things.

I would think it would be hard to keep drinks cold when they have to be set out ahead of time. We run into that when we do "will call" refreshments at the theater. We don't have to stand in line, but our drinks are slightly warmer. Still, I prefer having it that way.

I'm sure all you good work will be appreciated by those that do attend. Take it easy and enjoy the music!

I had to call the eye Dr as soon as DH tried to wake up.

Friday, October 17, 2014

Today has been a worse day than yesterday.
DH woke up but could not open his eyes it was too painful.
After my call yesterday they told us to do 4 drops so I was worried there was an allergic reaction.

I called and the receptionist said no openings today we only have one Dr. I am afraid I had to be politely pushy. I asked to speak to our favorite OR assistant.

I told her it was worse using the drops his eyes are running constantly and he is in pain.

She said come right up and we will find the time to see what is going on.

One of the Drs. Was on vacation and a husband and wife team had to go to a funeral for a parent.--BAD TIMING today.

They took Fred in and the technician could do very little. She brought in another tech and finally the super tech. They could not show him a big enough letter to read.

They did an eye scan and they numbed the eye and DH felt the pain subside.

The super tech came back in and looked at his eye and used extra magnifiers . She said an eyelash was caught under the upper eyelid and it had been scratching the cornea all that time so it is very raw.

The Dr came in and she was able to pluck the eyelash. Then they tried again to do a refraction but DH could till not see anything.

His first day after the surgery he was delighted how well he can see. Not any more. We have to go back on Tuesday to see if any healing is taking place. I sure do hope so.

The early cataract was done to EXTEND his vision till the macular degeneration took his central vision. We were trying to cope but he said it had three weeks then see the DR. I think he would. He never rocks the boat. DH is not much in to medical issues but I felt certain I was right. The Dr. said to me I was correct to insist seeing him. I told her I realized it was Friday and I wanted answers now.

There was a bright moment. DH was sitting in the chair with the eye chart in front of him. On the chart was a huge "A" DH was looking at the chart. I asked what do you see he said the white screen no letter. He turned towards me and then looked back at the chart and he said I saw the letter "A" the techs came in all three and they all tried to get a good refraction. They left the room and there on the chart were smaller letters "H" and "B" I asked him to move just his eyes and see the screen and he saw those two letters.

We know he will lose central vision eventually and I had told him he should be able to use his peripheral vision but he just could not do it. Today he was able to do that. We are waiting till the eyes are better so he wants to try to watch TV that way.

I have spun the wheels and that is about all.
Thanks for asking about is eyes. I had very little on my mind so it went a bit easier. Thanks Spark friends. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon'S

    I'm so glad you were what you call "pushy", I tend to call that be really aware when something isn't right and finding the answers. Not being able to see well makes one nervous and usually short tempered from the frustration. Fred is fortunate to have you in his corner 100%. Good Job!!

    YOu were right to request seeing the doctor. With the macular degeneration my doctor said call if you have any sudden change in what you see, pain, or change in the physical eye. I have moderate to severe macular degeneration. It is the dry kind and moves slowly I can still see quite well but I can not read road signs from a distance. I do not drive alone unless it is local.
Prayers for Fred. Also, for you to stay after all of this problem.

    Pat, I am so sorry for DH but so glad you pushed to get him seen. With the weekend coming, you were very wise not to wait. Hope that things improve for him and that he's doing better today.

big hugs to both of you...Mary Anne

    Oh POOR Fred with that huge PLANK in his eye!! Fortunately, the human body zooms in on parts that need healing. The cornea is a mucousy, membrane sort of thing. Plenty of water drinking and rest..Did he keep the eye patch on while it was not useful? I cannot even imagine the relief he felt when they got that lash out!!

Make sure there is plenty of hand washing before and after touching those eyes or the vicinity. Any little thing could start a horrible infection! Lots of soap and water!! We do not realize how much we touch our face until we have to wash every time.

    No wonder it was painful, glad the eyelash is now out and it can have a chance to heal.
Hope he's feeling better very soon emoticon

    I am glad you insisted they see Fred. I am glad
they were able to remove the eyelash. It's good
that he can see some letters. I hope his eyesight
improves soon. You keep looking after him and
yourself too. Have a great weekend. emoticon

    So glad you insisted they see him as an emergency, which it was.... (Not all emergencies happen on Monday or Tuesday.....)

Now hopefully the eye can star healing and things will start to improve....

    Glad that you persisted until you got someone to agree to see him. The eyelash might have done a lot more damage if you'd waited until Monday.

    I'm so glad you got someone to see him. The staff sounds like they are very good at accessing when they need to get someone in. It was an emergency and he could not wait. I hope he sees some improvement very soon. You take very good care of your hubby.

    I was holding my breath reading your BLOG until you said he was finally seeing some letters. I am sending best wishes that your DH heals well and is given the gift of good sight.
