So glad you found me. Just come and sit a spell, it's time to go exploring. Life is an unscripted journey that if you're lucky enough, you capture it with words and photos.

His Fault

Wanted to let everyone know that we didn't make it to Texas AGAIN!!!!!  I swear the Gods are against me going down anytime soon!!!!!

I had an attack of double vision and needless to say, we had to turn around Wednesday morning after being in the car for four hours and come back home.  I was afraid to go any further (and I hate so say it, I was pretty freaked).  Two days in the car to get to Texas with double vision wasn't my idea of safe.  I didn't want to go to some doctor I didn't know, in some town I didn't know, much less take a chance of getting worse.  So, I made John bring me back home.  Luckily no TIA, much less stroke.  (I have history of stroke thirteen years ago).  TIA ruled out yesterday.  This morning went to eye specialist and found out right eye has substantially lost sight ... my left eye wants to do all the work.  Which caused in his words "left eye malfunction" .... it went into overload and it couldn't work for both eyes causing double vision.  Lordy, lordy I am falling apart!!!!!  Doing major testing in two weeks because he didn't like what he saw with my optic nerve.  Possibility of glaucoma.  Not worried at all ... I have an explanation and glaucoma is treatable.  He did major testing of muscle control of right eye and said it is turning in. (contributing to double vision, too).

Ofcourse, my daughter is now mad at me!!!!!  I understand the disappointment ... I'M DISAPPOINTED too.  All she sees is we cancelled our trip again.  I really get frustrated when she says "you're RETIRED now and shouldn't have any STRESS".  To quote her words ... "Mom, just call me when you ARRIVE".   I can't get through to that daughter of mine .... her parents aren't as young as we use to be and we DO GET SICK!!!!  Sorry, everyone ... I'm just frustrated!!!  I really do love that daughter, but sometimes I just plain don't like her!!!!!

Enough of me .... I have a new freebie for the theme of family.  This one is also out of my earlier creations.  Hope it makes everyone smile.  The topic is TEENAGE BOYS.

I'm glad that you are dealing so positively with your eye condition. Not knowing is always worse. When you know what is going on, you can at least start to put a plan into action. So sorry to hear your trip is a bust yet again but we're glad you are back.

Sue, I do hope your eye specialist is able to find and treat the complications you are experiencing. Your story sounds oh so familiar. I have glaucoma and double vision plus many other eye complications due to Grave's Disease and 6 eye surgeries. I have had many major health issues for going on 30 years and it is still my daughter (who is 29) that doesn't understand my major limitations. We live in Wisconsin and she lives in Oklahoma so I think you are getting the jest of it. She expects us to always be the ones who travel even though the traveling is so very hard on me.

Hope things improve with your eye soon and you don't have too much trouble in the meantime. Then you can go and visit your daughter and spend some time with her. Of course, we are happy to have you back! Hugs, Suze.

Oh Dear, Sue, what a difficult time you are having with your eyes. You were VERY smart to turn back to your own physician, for sure---hope he can help you with what's going on there and SO glad no TIA! I live in that horror too!
