Doctor Appointment-Shopping-Lunch

Got up early this morning because I had to get ready to go to my appointment with my retinal specialist. My appointment was at 9 am so Jean picked me up around 8 am.
My vision in the right eye had diminished a little more. They gave me the injection with the little pellet that slowly dissolves over a few weeks. It hurts a little when they inject it because they have to use a thicker needle plus once the numbness wears of, the eye aches a little. I’ll have to go back in about 2 months for a follow-up. I hope this injections works like the last time I had it, but I know that it only lasts for 4 to 8 months and then I’ll have to have another one. It helped my vision quite a bit the last time.
It’s strange because the last time I got this kind of injection, as soon as they implanted the pellet, there was like a black veil over my eye that I was looking through. Didn’t get that this time. Also this time they told me not to “wash my face or hair” until tomorrow. They never told me that before.
We came back over to Santa Clarita and did some shopping. I didn’t really have anything I needed to buy but Jean had some stores she wanted to go to, so we did that for a little over an hour, then we went to JJ’s Grill (used to be Mulligan’s) for lunch. There was only two other people eating besides us. Jean and I “fell in love” with our waiter. His name was Joe and he was 50ish. Not all that handsome, but there was just something about him…he had a lot of charisma.
Came home to my Hiker Girl. She was excited to see me because she wanted her mid-day snack and she wanted to go up to the mailbox with me. Then she settled down on the couch and went to sleep.
