My cataract doctor has moved to new digs and her reception area has a spectacular view.

I keep a thumb drive of favorite tunes to play in the car. Currently the soundtrack to Book of Morman is having its turn. I love the music but it creates the worst ear worms...
No matter how sweetly muttered, it's not cool to be humming "I have maggots in my scrotummmmm" even when you are a girl.

The new doctor digs have a machine instead of a man when it's time to pay for parking. The machine is shiny and new and takes real cash. I slapped in my $20 bill for my $6 fee. The man would have given me a $10 and 4 $1's.
The machine gave me...

Today's Special Basket
Some of the yarn that +Dave Bennett sent me is beyond special. This Caron Dazzle Aire yarn is sooooo soft and wonderful to knit with and will make the cutest fuzzy bear. And it's a blast from the past. Caron quit making this yarn a long while back. They have recently re-made/re-issued it but in a form that is too fat for bears.
It's a huge treat to have this forgotten but wonderful yarn to work with. This bear will not only be marvelous but also a vanishing breed. I think there is more of this yarn in the +Dave Bennett pile. I hope so.

14 days...

I left early for the doctor's office to ensure I had enough time to turn wrong, park wrong, look for the office, etc.

Turns out the new digs are about 5 minutes from here. Parking is dirt simple and to get to the her office you set out of the car, into the elevator and out just steps from her office. So... I was there a good 45 minutes before my appointment!

I got to look around and enjoy the new space which is pretty spectacular with a fabulous view of downtown and all the way to Elliott Bay. Then I sat down and pulled out my Kindle. I just finished my latest Kindle book last Sunday at brunch so I started the next one of the list which turned out to be a GREAT one and soon I was deep in the aftermath of a huge earthquake in LA (The Walk). It thought it was a 'sample' and kept expecting to get to the part where I have to buy it but it never did. I just looked it up and turns out it is a Kindle lending library. Go me. Great choice!

So when I got called into the doctor's office, I was a bit annoyed by the interruption.

The nice assistant measured my eyeball on three different machines. And then I had to sign stuff saying I understood all the ooops scenarios and I don't have secret health issues and I promise someone will pick me up.

Then she gave me my cataract game prize. A lovely pleather dop kit with the doctor's card, a pair of fancy sunglasses, and tape for taping my eye shut at night. And a three page instruction sheet that she went over. I have to stop taking aspirin (on Saturday), start putting 2 different kinds of drops in my eyes 3 times a day (a week from Saturday), plus I have to follow all the rules she laid out. (Fasting day of, no heavy lifting for 2 weeks, no swimming for 3 weeks, reading and TV is ok.)

They will call me on the Friday before with the surgery time. I have to go back the day after and the week after.

That's it. Now I just wait.

Turns out that if I had not had that bagel for breakfast, I could have gotten my blood test there, too. Snap. Oh well. I'll go do it tomorrow and pick up my eyedrop prescriptions then, too.

Next up today is swimming. And then weekly conference call. And then who knows?

I once heard of a nurse who's tattoo across her breasts read Do Not Resuscitate. I've always been tempted to do the same. If anyone ever tries CPR on me, they'd better not be successful.
"In reality, a 2010 study of more than 95,000 cases of CPR found that only 8% of patients survived for more than one month. Of these, only about 3% could lead a mostly normal life."
I'm ready whenever it is my time. I've had a great life. This article gives me a great way to describe my wishes.... I want to doctor out.
