Tisie, my wife has had both eyes done and she tells me the actual operation takes only about 20 mins.  And I know that they gave her something to make her sleep, I think it must be the same stuff they use for a colonoscopy and the for procedures on my back.  Never felt or knew a thing. 

Don't know if I want to go over to my Granddaughters house for trick or treat or not, it will be the day after my eye operation.  I will see.  Jack and MaryTx say the operation had great results for them and no problems.  I think the biggest pain is putting all  the drops in. 

Callie, what is it with the big 12 this year.  The last team with the ball wins?  Watched a little bit of the TT/OU game and will watch more when I sign off here.....OU is ahead, but,

Good Night everyone, God Bless and sweet dreams.

Hal, I was fully awake when I had my cataract surgery.  I think I went into the pre-op room a half hour before surgery and every few minutes a nurse put a drop in my eye to freeze it.  When the time came, I was taken to the operating room and the doctor started in.  The doctor put something over my face that had a hole for my eye.  He told me what he was doing and I never felt a thing.  The only thing I noticed probably was when he removed my natural lens and I had an explosion of color.  After it was out, things were quiet again and within a half hour for the drops and surgery, I was in recovery for a half hour. 

Norm had his surgery a half hour before I did and Dot had to drive us home.  Norm and I had our first checkup the following day - I forgot who drove - and I had my final checkup at the end of the week and I drove myself. 

Shirley, I too wondered how I was letting anyone monkey with my eyes, but I did because I wanted to see better and I'm happy I did.  I chose to wear glasses because of the weather (wind and dirt) but I've worn glasses since I was 17 and am comfortable with them.

Good morning everyone, aother stormy day in store for us here with rain and strong winds. Just what I am looking forward to -NOT. Already warning of power outage. Oh  once again a terrible Sunday, just like last week.

LARRY  this is not a happy building mostly because of the manager. There are some smokers that she has made teir lives miserable. There is a smoke shack and that is the only place smoking is allowed and she will accuse them of smoking in their apartments and then also some non smokers she accuses of it, too.  I can believe Pat and her sister can spend hours talking. My daughter and I spend at least an hour every day on Skype and others cannot understand how we find things to talk about. Easy to do.

JOAN  we seem to be getting more rain than we want lately. Sad that it does not fall in the drought areas that need it. It has been too warm here for the end of October.

AMY  I would love to go to a chocolate factory, yummy.

JUNE  several different things have been tried here but no one bothers attending anything ahy more. The big kitchen down stairs has had the doors locked at times by the manager so the pot luck meals have stopped. Even using the big community room is getting to the stage where when something happens in there the next day she will send notices around that someone levt the room dirty and if that keeps up those doors will be closed.

SHIRLEY  I never pick up my phone if I do not know the number and most just hang up but at times they will start talking and half the time do not make sense. Cataract surgery is an easy surgery. I had both eyes done several years ago with no problems. Not at the same time but more than a year apart as the other eye was not ready yet.

LLOYD  glad I spent most of yesterday outside because today is another miserable one.

MARY ANN  like you I was awake for the caataract surgery. I was nervous for the first one but no problem so was calm for the second one.

Have a good day, I will be getting flashlights ready in case we lose power tonight.

Good morning Everyfriend!  Sorry I havent been posting but I've been involved in some heavy decision making and that wears me down.  Then the condition of my hand makes it harder and harder to type so I must admit I've been avoiding the keyboard somewhat. 

I've been to church on this rainy dark day and then stopped at the Gas station and the grocery store on the way hom.  Now I have to get busy and take care of my purchases. 

Enjoy your day Everyfriend...

Good afternoon, on this horrible day, the anniversary of big storm Sandy. Which this is suppose to be very bad, with gust of 70 miles per. It has been raining all day, but the storm is not expected till hit till after dark,  Which I do not like.

Gloria, I also have flash light and two lanterns ready to go. It is time likes these, that I wish I lived in a complex.  June's sounds like a wonderful place,  there is only one out here in Greenport, but I never could afford it;   It is right on LI Sound.

I have not been in here for a while as I was in the hospital for 5 days.  With CHF and renal failure. They let me come home as my nephew stayed to help me. I think my age has finally caught up with me. I cannot keep up with June any longer. :)

I think I have this keyboard working.  Libnedancer--I am sorry to read you have been in the hospital.  It is great your nephew stayed to help you so you could come home.  Hopefully the storm will blow away from you.

Happy Sunday to EVERYFRIEND.

We made it home safe and sound even though we had a BIG shock when we arrived at Logan Airport.  Tried and tried to get our tickets to print and it could not be done.  Finally a agent came over to help....she could not get it done either!  She asked, “could you have missed your flight”?  No way we answered!  Well turns out we had.  Somehow Bob got confused about the times written on our reservation.....my heart sank!  I was so embarrassed!  The agent at Southwest could not have been any kinder to us.  In no time she had us on a flight to St. Louis, then connections to a flight to Denver.  No charge difference or anything.  They even let me board early as I always do even though we were considered to be stand by.  Thank goodness there were flights with a few extra seats on them.  All is well that ends well, but once again I have to say that Southwest Airlines are the most accommodating airline ever. 

I had the worse leg cramps in both legs last night....I was screaming in pain.  I think it was a combination of not drinking enough water and sitting too much!  I know some in here have commented that they drink Gator Ade, but of course we did not have a drop in the house! 

It is a beautiful day here....around 70 degrees, but there is a storm headed our way.  Halloween will be clear, but the temps will be in the 30’s.  Burrr.

I am off to meet my best friend from Wyoming for dinner. She was only available to meet tonight before she heads off for Wyoming tomorrow.  She has been here all week. 

Have a good evening. 

Jenny

JENNY. I'm prettu sure something citeic will help to ease a leg cramp  There have been times when the only thing I had was a bottle of lemon juice and i stirred a couple tablespoons into water and it worked almost as fast as the gatorade.  I was desperate enough to jst drink it straight down without sugar or anything.  it worked several times

pretty quiet in here today, and I had nothing to add. I did drag myself off to Church today, but wish I had stayed home..felt crummy all day.

Gloria, that manager of yours is getting away with too much mis-management. She is supposed to keep the tenants happy and content. You must not have very many choices of care facilities in your area, or the tenants would pick up and move.

Gloria de, were you back in the hospital again dear ? I thank God that you have a nephew that can help you out. You wouldn't have had trouble keeping up with me today dear one.....I was worthless. Even our weather was cloudy and gloomy all day. I just read and read and read.

This is going to be a slower activity week here, so hopefully I'll get some paper work tossed out or at least organized.

Sorry I have nothing to add so I will bid you all a very good night, and a happy healthy tomorrow. I love you all so much. God keep you in His care. June.

Good Evening.  Well I have had my final glass of water and food for supper till after the procedure in the morning, sometime after 9.  I am hoping I have the same results that you all reported.

I hope none of you have any damage from the storms roaring through the Northeast.  I know I saw on news that lots of rain and wind in store for you.

At any rate, I am going to bed and hopefully get a decent nights rest, I haven't really had a good night in so long, seems like 2:30 AM is my wake up time any more.  But we will have to be out of here at 8 AM anyhow, my time to be there is 9, but I was told don't expect to get in right away.  But I will have several forms to fill out any how.

Good Night everyone, God bless and sweet dreams.

Home after the meet up with my dear friend.  It was so good to be able to visit. 

Thank you, Jane.  I am still having signs that the cramping is possible, so I will go put some lemon in my glass of water right now.  I have been drinking water very faithfully all day and trying to make sure I do not sit too long.  Appreciate the suggestion.

LARRY, happy to read that Scott and Jennifer made it safely to New York. I hope they enjoy their visit.

GLORIA de, I am sorry to read you have been in the hospital again.  Sure happy your nephew was able to be there with you. 

I hope the storm will not be too sever for you East Coasters. 

HAL, best of luck to you tomorrow, and prayers for a successful procedure. 

Pleasant dreams to all. 

Jenny
