Mike And Terri Head North and It Gives Me The Heebee Geebee's!!!

Rantoul, IL.

69 deg. Partly cloudy, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy with scattered storms. Highs around 82°F. Northeast wind to 5 MPH. Chance of precipitation 40 percent.

Monday morning, Mike and Terri packed everything up and after h and h,  (hugs and handshakes), left to visit family for a few days, up near Freeport, IL. They should be returning here to Prairie Pines tomorrow. :-)

Then, around 1:00 Monday afternoon, Big RED took Jim and Linda over to Fisher, IL for Linda's follow up  appointment with her primary care doctor. Linda's vitals were with-in normal range and everything went well at the doctor's office. After the doctor's appointment, Big RED took them over to Thomasboro to pick up their mail before bringing them back here to the CG.

I know that Linda's been worrying about her up-coming appointment with Dr. Gandhi since she went to see him last Friday and received the news that there was a problem with her right eye. By Monday afternoon and yesterday morning, she was pretty upset. :-(  I can't say I blame her. The procedure he said was necessary was not pleasant to even think about!!! The treatment is to actually inject some medicine right into the eye!!!!!

Brrrrrr!!!!!! I get chills and the heebee geebee's just thinking about it!!!!! :-O

Well, yesterday about 1:00 Big RED took Linda and Jim to Dr. Gandhi's office, (down on the South side of Champaign), and Linda had the procedure.

I'll tell you what!!! Linda was much braver than I would have been!!!! The procedure went well and soon Big RED was pulling back into his parking space here at the CG.

Linda's right eye felt scratchy and her vision was blurred in that eye but the Dr. gave here some drops to use in the eye. By the time she and Jim headed to bed, she was saying that it felt a little better. :-)

Today both Linda and Jim have appointments at Dr. Anderson's office. Linda for a pre-op for cataract surgery and Jim for a field of vision test.

There shouldn't be anything "creepy" happening today!!!!

Did you know that out of all the muscles in your body, the muscles that control your eyes are the most active?
