I had to pick my prescription up then go to the bank today.

The roads were busy as were the beach car parks.

When we got home I had a hospital letter.

My Vitrectomy eye op is on February 3rd.

 

Isn't it amazing what they can do nowadays.    If I understand correctly, that is a type of laser eye surgery?

So far the only person I know that got the jab is my SIL and she got the pfizer vaccine and she had really sore arm, tired and sluggish the next day, but it was her day off so she lounged around and was fine the next day.   

Sister-in-law just had a sore are from the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.  She got the second dose on Monday, and had 104° fever, chills, and aches all over for two days.  All good after that.  Guess it is the 2nd dose that affects some people more.

Not exactly, it's more like a "clean-up" surgery. My last employer, one of the 100 best specialists in retina diseases (world wide), was performing it routinely.

 

Vitrectomy is a surgical procedure undertaken by a specialist where the vitreous humor gel that fills the eye cavity is removed to provide better access to the retina. This allows for a variety of repairs, including the removal of scar tissue, laser repair of retinal detachments and treatment of macular holes.

Same here, as it was expected. After the 2nd Pfizer dose, almost everyone reports 1-2 days of fever, tiredness, muscle aches. Doctors say it's a good thing: "the vaccine is working...."😁

Yes, that is interesting.   Although I would hate to see any type of needle or laser coming at my eye.

No wildlife in todays update.  At least not wildlife that walks on four legs.  

 

I took half a day off today and decided to drive down to the other side of the lake where the public beach access is.  The sun was shining and we have nothing but blue sky today.  I though it might be nice to take a walk along the snow covered beach. 

 

What I didn't expect was to find a swimmer.

 

The temp is 32˚ F (0˚ C)...

I spoke to her briefly.  She was every bit of 70 years old and she told me she comes here every day, 365 days a year and hasn't had a cold, flu or any other illness in over a decade.  She insisted her daily swim, in every temperature, is the reason why.  I wished her well and asked to to take her picture while she waded out a little deeper.  She graciously consented.

Both Bucky and I have very sore arms near injection spot this morning.  But not that big of a deal.  Bit of a headache, but not sure if that is just from sleeping wrong (couldn't sleep on the arm).   

 

Well worth going through that...than the obvious other ....if not vaccinated.  

I agree that it is worth the pain and discomfort,however I woke up this morning still in pain and with a headache.

My sister got the Pfizer...and had flu like symptoms for two days.  She is back to normal now.

 

Bucky and I got the Moderna yestreday.  No side effects except for both of us having a very sore arm near injection spot.  A slight headache...but that could be from anything, most likely not being able to sleep on that side.  

I had the injection Wednesday at 1PM .I still have a headache as well as pain in my arm.The pain is tolerable and does not warrant taking anything to alleviate it.

Sorry, but that went right over my head. Not sure what you mean. I wasn’t referring to you when I commented.

True, and those people are everywhere and will always be around.

 

I'm talking about the vast majority that will take their cue from their leaders. If they see business as usual....well, then its' business as usual.

I understand what you are saying, I just wished people wouldn’t follow like sheep and use their own brain and common sense. Unfortunately there isn’t enough of that going around.

Buuuurrrrrr.  she must be part of the polar bear club🤪   it was around 50f here today and I went to food store and counted at least 6 people in shorts and shirts.  Sweatshirt and Jean's was just fine for me.

Eric saw his orthopedic doc today and was told he can start to slowly move his arm.  Yesterday was 4 weeks since he broke humerus bone near shoulder.  

Doc showed him how to remove sling himself a couple of exercises to slowly start with this weekend.  Next week he has 2 or 3 pt sessions to help rebuild strength and movement.  

WooHoo, soon he can play bartender again...shake shake shake.  Lol!

I read a story about a group that swim all year out on the East Coast just the other day. Other than bad storms they basically go every day. 
 

Makes me think about the Seinfeld Episode when Costanza went swimming in the Hamptons... it’s shrinkage.

Omg!  That was one of those episodes everyone remembers.    

Yes, I know there are some locals of LBI, NJ that swim all year.  Maybe not as faithful as everyday like the woman at the lake above, but they say the same that it keeps them healthy year round.

They make a couple of cuts in my eye to drain the vitreous fluid then use instruments to peal away the Epiretinal Membrane underneath which is pulling on my eye's macular which causes a slight distortion of vision in that eye.

They then put a gas bubble under the lens which over a week or so is absorbed into the Macular to fill the hole.

Good luck with the surgery Graham.  I have a friend who is an eye surgeon.  Like Dani said, he confirmed that it is fairly routine surgery.  You should soon be enjoying clear eyesight.

We've taken our first bigger step away from camping in our new Florida house.  Because we're not moving out of our Ohio house until the summer, and will be buying a lot of new furniture anyway, we only have what we could fit into a couple of cars.  We've literally been using folding chairs and tables.  The first of our new furniture has arrived...2 recliners.  We can now comfortably watch TV. 😁

Rug and TV tray side table are temporary.  We were supposed to have a chest/hutch delivered today but it arrived at the furniture store with a broken leg and now we need to wait another 3-4 for a replacement to be delivered.  Covid has affected furniture delivery times!

I waited 6 months for my bike and now my husband has been waiting 2 months for doors for his big shop.  I think he will be driving to Georgia next week to pick some up he found.  It is crazy all the things that are back ordered these days.

For some reason I keep hearing worse side effects for Pfizer.  Not sure why.  My sister is getting her second dose of Pfizer this week.  Want to ask her how she is doing with it.  

 

Both Bucky and I got Moderna.

Bucky had severe side effects after Shingles shots...I had mild.  I guess the vaccines are doing their job...just have to get through the body's reaction to them.  Hope you are feeling better soon.

Love the wet bar back there.  Very inviting looking!  😉 

 

I hear ya on the furniture delivery.  I called our favorite furniture store about our Stressless (Ekorne) love seat we ordered to match the recliners.  Was supposed to be here this week (10 weeks).  Now won't be here until March.  😖
