A page that I used as a Facebook Christmas Card a few years ago. It came across my Facebook memories 5 years ago and I was so very happy to rediscover it.
I hope this finds you doing well. I am fine here, just trying to wake up and enjoy my coffee.
Guess what? I didn't lose my bats. This morning I took my coffee out to the balcony and what did I see? A clutch of bats making their way home after a night of hunting.
I know that it is crazy to get excited over bats but all wildlife is really my thing and I enjoy watching them fluttering here and there.
Just as I enjoy the birds and flocks of geese. Speaking of geese, they are seriously noisy lol. It has been fun watching them fly towards the snowy mountains just to make a U-Turn and go back to the lakes here which is a bit warmer than the mountain lakes. I can hear their noisy complaints of having to turn around lol.
I told you of my plans to move to Reno Nevada but I haven't really spoken of some of my health problems.
I have been diagnosed with Glaucoma. I have been seeing a Retina Specialist for several years now and I was really upset that with all of the tests that I have been having for the several years that I was referred to another specialist who was to clear me for cataract surgery who was concerned with some vision loss. 2 days later I was seeing a Glaucoma specialist. I have chosen medication to lower the pressure in my eyes and some laser surgery for now.
It is very important to get the pressure in my eyes down. I did receive special permission to fly to Nevada. Since they have caught my condition early enough I could fly here and back home but as soon as I get home I have to have the laser surgery. I do have some permanent vision loss. At least the doctors found it early enough to stop a lot of vision loss. Just 10 years ago the new treatments were not developed and now many people will be able to retain their vision which is so very wonderful, and new treatments are being developed every day.
So my kidney is doing alright for now but I am spilling protein in my urine so I am trying to lower it by limiting meat in my diet and cheese as well. I am alright by doing all that is necessary but I will really miss my meats! I am a carnivore but thankfully I don't have to deprive myself all the time. I just have to limit it as much as possible and I have actually not missed anything other than cheese right now. I wanted a grilled cheese sandwich yesterday but I decided that I would eat a salad which was an excellent choice.
I am going to get off now because I need to make some important calls to fill my insulin pump and to check a couple of other prescriptions so I will say goodbye for now. Hugs to all, virtually of course lol... BB
