Nearly a Month has gone by......

since I posted vacation photos. Posting pics has gotten more difficult over the years, so if I have more than a few, I don't have much motivation to try. 

My middle child had a birthday last Friday. All four of her children were in town and we had a cookout (per her request). Older grandson was the grill master and master he did. Hamburgers, hot dogs and grilled veggies (mushrooms, squash, onions). She specifically did not want a cake. No sweets for us that day....but on Saturday, I made pork tenderloin and my granddaughter Jessica made a wonderful cake from scratch, with fresh strawberries and blueberries, and a glaze icing.  It was delicious!

Of course, there were no pics from either of those days - daughter won't allow it. I don't know why.....she's beautiful and so are all her kids. 

Apparently, I have an eye problem. I woke up yesterday with a "red eye". It had been itchy, and I noticed a few tears escaping, but no crust or other signs of infection. The kids immediately decided I had pink-eye, and since Jim is scheduled for his second cataract surgery on Monday, they were afraid I would give it to him and his surgery would have to be postponed.  I tried to get an appointment with my eye doc, but he was in surgery and couldn't see me until Friday. So I did a tele-doc appointment by phone. She decided I had an allergic reaction to something, and she called in an Rx for some eye drops. I am to use them 2x per day for a week. I sure hope that takes care of it.

Glad you had such a nice birthday celebration with your daughter and family.
Bummer about that eye though and sure hope the drops do the trick. Awful timing with Jim needing eye surgery now. Be well and stay safe.

I saw my Internist on Friday. I do not have an infection - for which I am thankful. It is either an allergy, or I scratched or rubbed it too hard, or I strained too hard and broke a blood vessel in my eye. I have drops to use as long as I need to.
