This was a stressful week for me. Tuesday I took Don to the ophthalmologist’s office and made the mistake of sitting in the waiting room while he went back for his exam. I should have known better since he could not really tell me what the doctor had told him other than he’d scheduled him an appointment with a retina specialist for Friday. I did get some of my hat knitted during the over two-hour wait, though.
On Wednesday I made one of our favorite recipes from the Always Hungry book, Mediterranean Chicken. It is just simple ingredients that blend together so well and are so tasty.
Thursday was Wifesaver’s day, and we went out to Greendale Mall to walk around a bit. On the way out we passed by the new location of The Fix and right then I decided that would be where we are lunch. The old location was so small and crowded, but this place was wonderful. And the food was delicious!
We both got a salad from the salad bar, and I added a side of grass-fed beef cooked medium. It was perfect and I can still almost taste it. I will definitely go back and have the same meal again.
After lunch, we went to Westborough to the Steinmart store and I bought a quilt and two pillow shams for my bed. I didn’t get a really good picture of it, but I love the look. It has really brightened up that room. The bonus here was that when we got to the register the purchase rang up at 50% off.
Yesterday my friend Shelley sent me a message with a recipe for a Caprese Omelet and since it was right before lunch, I made my version of it. It was very tasty. I loved the melted mozzarella cheese! Since I was doubling the recipe I found that making a frittata was easier.
So yesterday found me knitting again. I only knitted while we waited in the waiting room for over an hour.
This time, I went back with Don so I could get the straight answer on what was wrong with his eye. He has Macular Degeneration in both eyes, but it is the Wet variety in the right eye where he sees the black spot.
He actually began treatment immediately with an injection of Avastin directly into the back of his eye. It sounds a lot worse than it actually appeared to be. He will go back for regular injections in hopes of stopping the progression of the MD and maybe regaining some of his lost vision.
So that brings us to today. We had no deadlines but needed milk and eggs so we headed to the farm.
We did not get eggs, so will need to go back for them. Afterward, we went to Aldi’s and picked up a few groceries. It was a pretty good low-key day and that was what I needed. Don says he thinks his eye is a bit better, but I am not sure that I can really believe that the first treatment worked so quickly. Time will tell.
