Extremely Ducky


I haven’t put any photos ore clip art lately.  My sister Ellen sent this early this morning and it reminded me of Manhattan Beach in California.  I was about 5 or 6 and we went down to the beach with our neighbor Patty Pelfrey.  We didn’t ask Mom – we just went.  I was just paddled around the edges when I was sucked under by a wave.  It couldn’t have been all that deep, but it scared the life out of me.  I wonder if that is how I became afraid of the water?

This week Eddie had his second eye surgery on Tuesday.  I had lunch with my guests for my radio show at Nordstrom Cafe on Monday – I changed it from Tuesday because it felt as if it was crowding too much into one day.  We had a delightful time, I am looking forward to the show next week.

We had to be at the doc’s by 7:30 this time rather than 6:30.  The past two weeks Eddie has not worn his glasses except to read, even os, it has made things more difficult with them on. My biggest concern was if I was going to be able to do my show at 9:30.  I let Benny know what was going on, I didn’t expect to do it at the last minute in the car on my cell phone.  I was talking to a guest who interprets dreams and not something Eddie was interested in.  Not sure how much he paid attention, I felt a bit nervous.  It went well but the quality wasn’t as good as it could be.  That’s why I prefer to be in the studio.

I drove home and we had something to eat – he had to fast after midnight and he was hungry.  We had something to eat and he went to sleep for a while.  I was droopy and ended up not getting anything accomplished, not even a nap.  I felt almost too tired to sleep.  Eddie felt better when he got up.  So far he can’t really see to read – just a bit.  He is very frustrated because he can only watch tv.  Not something that makes him happy.  I certainly understand how that feels.

Wednesday was doctor day for both of us.  We went in the morning for him to have a check up – we just went to Burien instead of all the way to Federal Way.  They are very pleased with how the surgery went and even more pleased at how well and quickly the left eye healed.  They want him back on the 19th when he hopes they will give him a prescription of reading glasses.  He is seeing so much better, it is amazing to him.

I had changed my appointment with Dr. Cheryl until 11, so I went for my adjustment.   I am constantly learning fro her, she has been working on the nerves to create new straggles for healing – my body is taking to it like a duck to water.  At some point it will be automatic and if I am out of adjustment, it will go back to the new strategies.  She is also checking out CBD hemp oil – I am interested to try it out since I trust her.  We’ll see how that progresses.

Then at 1:00 I had Wound Care – they chucked me out and said I am healed.  They are  an enjoyable group to see.  As one was checking off things on the computer, I thought I saw one choice as ‘Extremely Ducky’.  I thought, that can’t be right, this computer has no sense of humor.  I mentioned it to Christine and we looked back and found it was ‘Extremely Dusky’ – missed it by one letter.  Then when the next one came in, she asked how I was doing – I couldn’t resist ‘Extremely Ducky’.  Of course, she didn’t get it so I explained and we had a good laugh.  So it was an ‘Extremely Ducky’ afternoon.  I am healed and they are pleased with how well it healed.  I need to make sure I call right away if anything comes up.

Yesterday was errand day – we have been having lovely sunny but cold weather.  Right now the fog has rolled in, no doubt will leave at some point.  We went to BECU, then the bank, the Post Office, Barnes & Noble for coffee and to the grocery store – I was chauffeur but I think Eddie felt he was being driven around by his mommy.  He may be able to see well enough to drive on Monday or Tuesday, though I don’t know if he will go to the archives Wednesday or not.

We didn’t go to the PNAA Christmas Party last night, I don’t think we will go to Kent Breakfast Club one next Thursday – no Christmas parties this year.  Eddie wants to make sure he takes care of himself and driving at night isn’t on the agenda a the moment.
