I haven’t finished the writing piece I mentioned earlier. I ended up with a massive housecleaning effort this weekend. After 3 water bugs and 2 scorpions in the past 3-4 weeks, I decided it was time to “bug-bomb” the house. I think it’s been 8 or 9 years since I’ve done it. I moved all the dishes and food out of the kitchen, emptied the cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms, and covered up other things. Before I put everything back, of course, it only makes sense to clean the rooms. This is spring cleaning time, isn’t it? 🙂

I have my first follow-up exams this week. I see my radiation oncologist on Tuesday and my surgeon on Thursday. Next week, I see my gynecologist. I expect good reports, and I’ll keep you posted.

I saw my eye doctor on Friday because I have some floaters in my left eye. He checked both eyes thoroughly and said there’s no sign of a retinal tear. If I do experience any of the symptoms, I am to call him right away, otherwise, I go back in 6 weeks. He said most retinal tears occur within 2 months of the appearance of floaters. Of course, most of the time, floaters don’t mean anything except that the vitreous humor is starting to liquefy. For most people, this starts happening by the age of 50. Also, most people who have floaters, can’t see them. According to my readings, only about 1% of people with floaters can see them. Other than being an annoyance because they move when my eye moves, it’s not a big deal. Of course, I would prefer that they go away. Typically, they eventually fall to the bottom where you can’t see them.

Wednesday night was my first night back recording Roy’s Bible class. Other than forgetting to move the mic sliders up on the sound board and being a bit slow starting the recording, it went well. It was good to be back, although it was kind of nice to be off for a few weeks. I’m very grateful that Russ and Mark were willing to cover for me during my treatments.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mothers! Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus!
