Thursday Thirteen

Nov 24 015As predicted my Wednesday was a long, busy day. So, this week I thought I would do a Thursday Thirteen. Here we go!

  1. I woke up far too early on Wednesday. 5 AM! I wanted to go back to sleep, but my nerves got me, and I got up.
  2. Although I do not eat or drink anything until after my weigh-in, I made the coffee and sat down to catch up on my email and Facebook.
  3. I wanted to watch “This Is Us” on-demand, but I didn’t quite have enough time, so I put it off until Wednesday night.
  4. Eventually, I showered and dressed, made my breakfast, put it in the thermos and by 7:45 I was out the door.
  5. I arrived at WW Class. I am almost always the first one with the exception of the woman who weighs us in, Tami.
  6. As you can see I have done very well for the month of January.
    I am so proud of all my hard work. Losing weight is not easy, but if you really work on it, it can be done!
  7. After class, I felt like I was walking on air, and I did a little grocery shopping and then came home. I didn’t have a lot of time to kill, but just enough so I could make take-along lunches for Jack and me.
  8. We drove down to Manchester, NH and after a series of about six turns, we arrived at Dr. H.’s Office.
  9. I was put through a series of preliminary tests, a complete medical history was taken, and then I was led into another exam room where I met with Dr. H.
  10. She is an amazing doctor, and she did a complete exam before ordering a “Field of Vision” and a picture of my “Optic Nerve“.
  11. After those tests, I was shown into her other office, and she completed the exam and then went over the results.
  12. I have Intra-Ocular Hypertension. It is the beginning of Glaucoma. So far the tests indicate that my “Optic Nerve” looks okay, and the “Field of Vision” was close to normal. I am starting drops and hopefully, this will bring my pressures down (currently they are 26 in each eye) and I can avoid any other problems.
  13. I go back in one month for a recheck, and it is hoped that the daily drops will do the trick. All in all, the day was busy, but with only really positive results!

  1. While we have free eye tests every year after about the age of 50, I think some of the scans you mention cost extra. I think the figure of 26 is quite high, hence the eye drops. Good on you for looking after your eyes. What could be worse than losing you eyesight. I would be deprived of your blog.

  2. I do hope you’re able to manage your eye issue with the drops. So much body maintenance once you pass the ’50-mile mark’ isn’t there? Take care and stay warm! Have you had much snow this year?

  3. That’s terrible that you still have eye troubles ! that’s really your sensitive point ! I haven’t seen one snow flake yet, it’s still very humid and rather warm for the season. Not good for my asthma !
