Imazo's cataract surgery

Howdy, You all,

We went to Knoxville yesterday morning (left here at 6:10 a.m.) to take Imazo to the outpatient surgery for her cataract surgery. I had thought to take her and leave Hugh at his house with Dub, but he had plans to be with her, so the three of us went and left Dub alone at the house.

We left about 7 a.m. and of course, it only took about 5 minutes or so to arrive at the surgery. About 10 a.m., the surgery was over and Imazo had done just fine and we were able to take her back home. Since no one had had breakfast, we stopped at Burger King and picked up breakfast and took it back to their house for a morning repast.

By around 12:00 we were all feeling the effects of the early morning hours, and Imazo lay down for a good nap, and the other three of us went out on the front porch to talk and watch traffic and the birds. Hugh and Imazo have a bird bath and I brought some fresh water out and filled it. What fun it was, watching the birds come and flit around in it and flipping their wings!

I sat on the porch in the warm breeze and before I knew it, I was drowsing, so I went inside and took a lying down rest on the living room couch.

About 3:00 p.m. I took Dub with me and we went to the drug store, the Pizza Hut (to pick up supper) and on to the grocery store for some food items for them.
When we got back, we put away the groceries and then chowed down on Meat Lover's Pizza. Yum! Love that crust on Pizza Hut's pizza. No one can do Pizza like they can.

Dub and I left about 6 p.m. and motored home, pleased that we could do this small thing for our brother and sister (in law). She is more a real sister than in-law. We are hoping to take them up to Ohio to visit her sister, Lois, in September. We are also looking forward to visiting our family in Illinois very shortly. We can hardly wait.

Oh, yes, when we got home last evening, I checked my e-mail and found a reply to my letter to AT&T. It seems they have finally fixed my account so that the payment for this month is much lower and the one for next month will be even lower, from the adjustments they have made. Thank the Lord! This just shows that PPO (persistence pays off), doesn't it?

Well, that is about all for today. Hope each of you has a glorious day tomorrow.
Bye for today from Blabbin' Grammy. See you later.

I am glad the surgery went well. I love a birdbath in the yard. I am going to have to get one for my yard. We are so dry they can't find any water here. TN said...

I wondered where you were yesterday....glad you had a good trip to the eye Dr. and hope all goes well for your sister-in-law.
I have a bird bath in my back yard and I love to watch them. I also have a terrapin in a big cage in my back yard. My son found it in the middle of the road and brought it home. We feed it strawberries and cantelope. I saw it eating a earthworm the other day.
