Yes! It is shopping time already!
She is almost ready to go back onto solid foods, and everyone is hoping she will be able to keep it down for a change. Her release day may be Sunday but that’s not a sure thing yet.
Elsewhere at the Shaw Convalescent Compound, Bob’s eye is continuing to slowly heal. After the first procedure in Michigan, he had a bubble of nitrogen in his left eye. It was not so big that he couldn’t share driving with Paige. After the second procedure, he’s had a much larger bubble there. It has been so large that he hasn’t been willing to drive, although the doctor says he is legal to (what a scary thought). The eye is filling with its normal fluid and the bubble is slowly shrinking. Lately the edge of the bubble is coming into view, and the effect of one good/one bad eye is quite irritating. With Halloween coming tomorrow, we decided it was time for Bob’s Pirate Look:
Is this scary, or what?
A the rate things are going, he is hoping to be able to see with both eyes at his next checkup late next week, and maybe even help Paige with the driving chores.
The weather here has been beastly hot since we arrived – until today. The high was only 80 or so – just lovely! Love it!! Sounds like the forecast is for highs in the 70’s.
We had a date night on Wednesday night. Paula loaned Bob the book “The Martian” and he really enjoyed it. Tomie worked on the premier of the move with Matt Damon so Paula and Tomie had already gone to the move. We went to the movie and both enjoyed it a lot. Bob said it was true to the book although some additional tense moments were left out of the move to save time. We then went to Panda Express right outside the movie theater and had dinner outside. Great evening!
