Got My Flu Shot!

Since Jean and I are going to the annual Harvest Festival in Ventura this Friday, we will not be doing a dog walk that morning, so we decided to take the dogs out for a walk today before my appointment at Kaiser.
Jean picked me up around 10 am and we stopped by The Dollar Tree on our way to Kaiser.
I had to go to Kaiser to have my eye measured for my cataract surgery that will happen after I consult with the surgeon next week. My appointment was at 11 am and we got there just after 10:30. They called me in around 10:45. They measured both eyes so they would have the left eye measurements for the future. It only took about 5 minutes as they use laser to do the measuring. The technician told me that they now have a retinal specialist who comes to Santa Clarita twice a week. He said if I’d like to not have to go down to Panorama City for my retinal appointments, I could ask to be transferred to the doctor in Santa Clarita. I love Dr. Khodadadi who is my specialist in Panorama City, but it would be nice to not have to fight the freeway traffic every time I have an appointment. I’m supposed to see Dr. Khodadadi in December, so maybe I’ll talk to him about this other doctor and see if he could have me transferred. I’m going to check the Santa Clarita doctor out online to see what his rating is.
While we were at Kaiser, Jean and I were “swooning” over a gorgeous young man who was at the check-in desk. He was probably in his mid-30s and he looked like a movie star. Very handsome. Also, Jean wanted to get her flu shot while we were there. Now I have never gotten a flu shot in my entire life because when I worked at Lockheed, they gave flu shots to employees for free and everyone in my office who got the shot would still catch the flu. I never got the flu and I never caught it from any of them. But….I decided since I am getting older and I know that there is more risk of dying from the flu as we age, that I’d better get the shot, so I did.
Was 103° today.
