|Dilation for eye exam|
Finally, yesterday, I saw the doctor who will perform the surgery. He has done 35,000 cataract surgeries. That's all he ever does. However, his competence is little consolation when I will have my eye cut and something foreign inserted. Aaack, I am not taking this well. I can drive the following day. I only have to stop eating at 6 am before surgery. Whew! Well, I doubt I will get up at 5 am just to eat. But, if I did that, I could go back to bed. Now, that is a thought.
Exbf asked at work for that day off. That still leaves me in a bind. I am supposed to have someone with me for 24 hours. Nope, he will buy our dinner and head home. Every time I have been told to have someone with me for 24 hours, I never have. Plus, I must see my regular eye doctor the day after surgery, and he will release me to drive. The office is only two miles from my house, so I am tempted to drive myself.
September 23, 2014 is the day. Nothing I have been told has proven to be true with this doctor.
NOT August 23rd!
Local Grocery Ads
Six local grocery ads
There were six ads in the mailbox today. I went through the ads, ready to mark what I wanted to buy this week. There were really good deals, but not on things I buy.
There was one thing I will get against my better judgment. TREET I had never tasted Spam until last year. As a child, we ate Treet because my parents preferred it. We rarely ever had it, so it was really good with pan-fried potatoes. You know the kind? Right? They are as greasy as French fries. I slice and fry Treet. It is $1/can. I really don't know the regular price, so I will have to investigate prices. Maybe I will only buy one can just for old time's sake.
The only thing I will buy this week is fresh vegetables. Actually, I will buy just a bag of salad greens. Tuesday, I bought milk. Of course, I still need to look at the Publix and Kroger ads.
Have you had cataract surgery? Any problems? Anything I need to know? Don't hold back about problems. I need to know! Do you ever have weeks when the ads are overloaded with sales and then other weeks when there is not a lot to buy that you want AND on sale?
