Good luck Sarah and thanks Allen for being willing to help a friend.
Tomorrow Duke's new $235 million cancer center will open. Since Friday was the last day in the old building, we took a few pics of my last walk into the building and down the hallway to my treatment room...
Everyone is excited about the new building and I'm excited for all the workers, doctors, researchers, technicians, patients, etc. Everyone will be in one location, instead of scattered throughout separate buildings. Hopefully, I will be able to take some pictures of the new center without being intrusive.
I had an appointment for an eye exam. It has been years since I have had my eyes checked and wore prescription glasses. I first started wearing glasses at the age of 14 for distance vision. As most of us experience, as we age, it's our farsighted vision that gets worse. My distance vision improved with age and I started wearing reading glasses that I purchased at Walmart for $5. Recently I noticed a change in my distance vision and decided it was time for an eye exam. If you have problems with distance vision, why is it referred to as nearsightedness? And if you have probs seeing things "up-close," why is it called farsightedness? Shouldn't it be the other way around, or am I just confused?
Anyway, during the exam, the doctor said I had a small cataract on my right eye, but it was so small it would be years before it would affect my vision. She further stated that radiation sometimes causes cataracts -- OH GREAT! But, my grandmother had cataracts, so I'm chalking it up to heredity. Anyway, we walked out after purchasing a pair of glasses and sunglasses as well -- cost, just under $300. YIKES!
Today has been a quiet Sunday. We watched church via the Internet where our daughter and family attend. We took about a mile walk -- it was nice to be out in the fresh air. It was a nice sunny 50-degree day. We would prefer temps in the 60s, but we'll take 50s after last Sunday's snow.
We have enjoyed all the beautiful cardinals we've seen in the campground.
Thanks for stopping by. May God bless our family, friends and fellow-bloggers -- wherever you may be!
