Dad has an ulcer in his cornea and an eye infection. I'm not sure what the prognosis is, but I'm too smart to Google it. Not "I'm so smart I don't have to look things up," but "I'm smart enough that I know that the internet is full of medical advice that will Freak Me the Hell Out," so I'm holding off.
He has to go to the doctor daily for a while and take eye drops every half hour. It helps keep his mind off of the financial bailout, so that's ONE good thing.
I feel for him, though. I can only imagine how terrifying it is to be blind and to have a wife who needs so much help. Not that he would ever admit that...
I don't know what it is going to mean for my life and how things get done around here, but some changes will have to take place.
I'll keep you posted. Thanks for all your support.
After all the comments on my post about my continuing grief over the death of my sister, I may launch a t-shirt line. One would say "Yes, I am STILL grieving. What's it to you?" and the other "Still not over it! But thanks for asking!"
The problem is that you would have to wear them all the time to ward off questioners, and it would get boring after a while. Perhaps I could do them in different colors and styles?
Or make them in threat level colors like that terrorist chart? Green for the days when it is fine to mention their name, yellow meaning "Have kleenex at hand," orange for silent hugs and chocolate, and red for Full Lockdown sob-your-eyes-bloodshot mode.
Go out there and kick ass (in a happy fun way). The world needs it!
