   Balogreene  I hate that. Last time at my cardiologist, they took me back to the room 20 minutes late, 20 minutes later, I was leaving the room when the Dr. walked in (I was timing it on my iPhone ).

Many years ago I thought it through. The person I would wait the longest for was Baryshnikov. I figured I would wait 20 to 25 minutes for him. No one (not even a cardiologist ) deserved more wait time. I try to stick with that.

   Sistersuzey  This has always been a major pet peeve of mine. Once my oldest son and I had spent an hour waiting in the back room for his pediatrician. I finally pulled a sharpie from my purse and had my son draw a skeleton on the paper sheet covering the exam table. We wrote "I was here and now I'm gone, all because you took too long!" Then we snuck out. I received a call later that day apologizing.

   BirdsNest  Ugh. Today Hagar was supposed to get a new PICC line put in. Because it was a holiday, the wound care nurse was off meaning the RN was to change the wound vac. She had not done one in a long time but I told her I could walk her through it. Because of the PICC line appt and no one had actually set up a time...they don't do that...we were cooling our jets all day waiting for them to send for him. I left at 6pm, no PICC line and the wound had not been changed. You can't start a wound care change and be interrupted, it takes at least 30 min to complete. Guess all this will be done tomorrow, or hopefully before Hagar's procedure for TEE. Checking for heart valve infection on Monday.

   Escaped commieny posted on Health & Diet  Who has had cataract surgery? I spent 4 hours today in tests and need to use some ointment for 3 weeks about a 'flash', apparent blood vein rupture, then if all is well they will schedule surgery. Haven't been able to post with these bad eyes and was hoping for a date today, now have to wait again. Fell 3 times and really got
buggered' up.

   NotaBene  About 7 years ago my mother came to visit. We were crossing the street and she held on my arm but did not want to cross the road. I asked what was the problem and she told me she could not see the traffic light. We went home, I talked to my husband about it. We went to our ophthalmologist and he said she was legally blind because of her cataracts. We talked to her and convinced her to have surgery. We took her and she had surgery on one eye. We had to put drops on that eye. One week later we took her again for the surgery on her other eye. She could not believe she could see so well. She had given up reading because of the cataracts, now she could read again. It was a miracle. I am so happy we that that for her. It changed her life. She lived until she was 94 enjoying life, the cataract surgery was a blessing in her life.

EC, go for it, it will change your life.

   Balogreene  My grandmother had the surgery, I think my dad did too. They both came through it well. My mom is 85, and refuses all surgery, but, she is opting for this one after the first of the year. It seems to work wonders.

   BirdsNest  I need to have cataract surgery, but it is low on the totem pole for now. I heard an ad coming home tonight about laser cataract surgery seemingly better than the method being used today.

   MeiDei  I would caution anyone about going the route of whole eye hard contact lenses after surgery - I have a friend who is struggling badly with that method; she has difficulty getting them out and needs assistance. My brother had lens implants during surgery that also corrected his vision. Just do the research of every available method and pick the one best for your lifestyle & abilities ... meaning that if you've never worn hard contact lenses I wouldn't opt for that procedure.

   Escaped commieny posted on Main Page The Lobby  Fireball asked about BettiJo
Her latest email:The professional power brokers who make up the RNC/GOPe “establishment” would rather see Hillary Clinton win an election, allowing them to remain in their power position, than to lose their place at the trough via a “conservative” or “outsider” who would take the executive branch and possibly remove their power.

   Bettijo  Thanks for your asking about me. I don't visit here as often as I used to as so often there are no new posts. For instance, on the Coffee Klatch wall the newest post is a week old and on the Household Hints wall the newest post is 3 weeks old. So, when I log on and have already read everything, I don't come back for several days hoping something new will show up. You know we are creatures of habit. At one time this was the first site I visited each morning, but I have gotten out of that habit. As you are aware, we have lost some of our regulars through death, banishment, whatever, and there are not many of us left. This site is just not as viral as it once was. I am sorry for that. I will make a concerted effort to be around more and to post more. I hope the rest of you will do so too.

   Bettijo  By the way, MeiDei, I am still facing a shoulder replacement. I wanted to have it done this summer, but could not get the doctor's office to schedule it until August and I had two church commitments beginning the middle of August that I did not want to cancel. So, I put if off. I do need to get this taken care of as it is painful and I have limited motion in my left arm. It is getting difficult to drive as turning the steering wheel is a one-arm turn, hold, move hand for more one-arm turn. When I get a date I will post it. Thanks for asking.

   StormCnter  Bettijo, try visiting the Movie Wall when you come to The Connection. Comments rarely last even a couple of hours without additional responses. You might enjoy it.

   Bettijo  You are right, Storm, the Movie wall does have more traffic. Unfortunately, I am not a movie buff. In fact, I believe the last movie I saw in a theatre was "Gone With The Wind" when it was first released at Lowe's Theatre in downtown Atlanta. It is not that I don't enjoy movies, it is just that I have a severe hearing disability and I cannot hear dialog in most movie theatres. I do watch them on my iPad sometimes as I can turn on closed caption. But, since I so rarely see a movie, I am not in a position to comment on the Movie Wall. Thanks for the suggestion.

Have all of our poly sci enthusiasts left us?

   StormCnter  Oh, I'm sorry that you can seldom enjoy a movie, but thank goodness for closed caption. I use it sometimes if the accents are too tedious (some British films ). I hope you check out the Movie Wall occasionally, because there might be a face or title you recognize.
