been thinking about eye drops a lot…

in January or February of 2012, George had cataract surgery on his right eye… it made a huge improvement to his vision and he did very well during and after the surgery… 

the cataract came on very quickly and he kept thinking that he had something in his eye so we were very happy to discover that was the problem… saw a wonderful doctor, got on the list and into and out of the Misericordia in record time…

the one difficulty he struggled with was the eye drops which started out three times a day at the beginning and were still happening twice a day even when he went back to work…

he just couldn’t put them in by himself, lol… so it became my job to administer the drops…

I’ve been putting drops in my eyes every night for many years as I’ve been diagnosed with glaucoma… once you start taking them you have to continue forever

recently I was doing some work in my computer photo library and came across a photo I had taken of his eye just a few days before his death… it was very close up and showed the sparkle that was always there…

here’s one that always makes me chuckle…
