Mike had his check up after the last cardioversion--everything is A-OK. I went with him to make sure he was not just giving me an overly optimistic report and I got the "A-OK" report directly from his doctor. He just has to keep taking the handful of meds...but they are working.
As we left the doctor's office, I said, "At least now I know that you can shovel your own damn driveway." (Never mind that we actually share the driveway, and I actually go out more than he does in the winter time.)
Later, I had my eye examination. No problems there...except those dilation eye drops do not seem to be wearing off. Maybe I should just close my eyes and go to sleep for the rest of the night. My eyes are perfectly healthy...I just can't see. Oh, and those spiders I see running around on the wall or across the pillow every morning--just floaters. Fortunately, I had already figured that out for myself. It was the time I saw a spider running across Mike's back when I first woke up. I stopped myself from screaming and thumping it
as Mike still slept. Good move on my part.
I did finish a couple of good books this past week. Three Junes by Julia Glass is a book I checked out of the library three times. I did not get past the first few chapters until the third time, the charm. I read the whole book and really enjoyed it. Must be I just was not ready before.
I also read The Lace Reader. I know, I know...it was on the NYT best seller list three years ago. I take my time and don't just fall for all the trendy stuff. Anyway, I really did enjoy this book--witches, mental illness, all kinds of abuse, suicide ideation, lost twins, religious fanaticism, psychic powers, romance--it had it all. I wasn't even on the beach and I thoroughly enjoyed the read.
