Here we are heading into Thursday and I feel like most of this week has been a blur.
Tuesday sweet hubby had his one cataract removed and a new lens put in. Spent most of his day in bed because he was wore out from the procedure, and I had to be near-by “in case” so getting much done was not a happening thing.
The whole pre-surgery thing was a bit of a nightmare. We were given a prescription for drops for his eye and of course it was in a drug group that he is allergic to – someone didn’t check that at the office. The pharmacist spent most of the day on Friday looking for a pharmacy that carried the one that he isn’t allergic to and couldn’t find one so the pharmacist called the doctor’s office and they said to come on over that they had a sample. Got up on Saturday to begin the drops and found out that 1) the brand new bottle was empty 2) it was expired!! Called back to our pharmacy (doctor was closed on Saturday) and once again they called around to see if they could find the correct one. Eureka!! Walgreen’s had just happened to get a shipment in and had it. Off we hurried to pick it up. Then found out that it should be refrigerated – the sample we had received had NOT been refrigerated.
After the surgery sweet hubby was given 2 pills to take – one at night time and one this morning. I took the pills out to give him the night one only to find that there were 2 different pills in the bottle. I couldn’t call the doctor’s office because they were closed, so I called the hospital number that they gave me.
They didn’t have a pharmacist there that late so instructed me to call Walgreen’s to have it checked by their pharmacist. So here it is midnight and I am driving across town – alone – to go to Walgreen’s to have the pills checked. The pharmacist checked them out using his computer and found that they were both generics of the same medicine from 2 different companies. Whew!! But better to be safe than sorry – I always say!!
Today was a recheck on the eye surgery to see if it was healing properly and also booking the next one. Next Tuesday will see us heading to the surgery center to get that taken care of.
Took the youngest one to the chiropractor as we both had appointments. Also trying to find a weird size envelope so that I can finish her sister’s graduation announcements and get them sent out. I sort of screwed up addressing the inside one so was looking for some replacements.
Canceled the last doctor appointment for today as I just didn’t want to go there and since it was for sweet hubby and he didn’t want to go – why bother?
Tomorrow is spending most of the day with my father as he has a doctor appointment in the afternoon and we will have errands to do in the morning with him.I have 8 more loads of wash to do plus I will be bringing his laundry home so that will give me about 2 more. Sometimes wash day becomes more like a wash week.
Another day that nothing will really get done at home. (Sigh)
Managed to unpack one more box out of the mound in the kitchen – go me!!
Personally I need to have a day (or two) (oh, let’s NOT get greedy) where I can just be at home so that I can get some of these chores taken care of. I also need to call a pulmunologist (lung doc) so that I can get rid of this cough (nagging annoying hack) and also be able to really breathe.
Well, that about sums it up for now. Keep sane and keep smiling – now to throw the wash into the dryer…….
