Ice and a cold virus
Thursday, February 22, 2018      6 comments

Eye exam and very busy
Wednesday, October 05, 2016      5 comments

I had not had eye exam in eight years, so got that done, and very little change in my eyes. I have scars on both retinas, but no problems from them so far. That was from a long ago lung infection when I was in my twenties. I had been dreading go... Read more
