Beaver:

I had both eyes done a couple years ago, a few months apart. The after was not to lift more than 20 # for a couple weeks, or less. A year later, a return visit to the clinic and she declared me 20/20 and just fine. I think there was also a return visit after a month or so???? For us, the glitch was the hour and a half drive to the hospital. We booked into an airbnb because we had to go back to the doctor the morning after. Same bnb both times and the sweet woman brought me soup when I was sick after the second from the anesthesia. Why bother asking if I am allergic if not going to pay any heed. I asked the dr to find out what I was given; she told me to ask the hospital! %^&* After the first one I had been fine.

Prior to the ops, I did not realize how bad it was and near got us killed on the road into Montreal, a detour with which I was unfamiliar and could not tell which of the three lanes I was supposed to be in. Highly un-recommended! We were both basket cases after we survived. Not as bad as if we had not...!

All my complaining on the MOH and health Unit FB pages may have nudged them but the woman posting finally got around to telling me where to register for a shot. I had not been polite. My tolerance for ... is nil. They post about the importance of mental health! I told them this is a MH issue! I may have mentioned that their site was pitiful. maybe even contemptibly stupid. Not sure but that was my thinking.

Today I was impelled to write a "letter to editor" re health care and the treatment of a friend who is probably terminal but maybe not. He and his wife - after being given medically incorrect treatment that threw him back something awful, were told he should go in hospice, with neither meds nor food. "He may not last more than a few hours, maybe a few minutes" said a "Dr." He is now moderately comfortable at home. My letter was fairly tame. I suggested that they treat people this way to save on health care dollars. Oh, I am in the middle of Norman Cousins book on the importance of giving patients HOPE! I'll give it to the SIL tomorrow when I see her.

I did manage to throw three pots with clay that was not very cooperative. I am about ready to stop until I get fresh clay. It occurred to me how much easier it goes when the clay is just right and I do not have the energy to be fighting with the clay.

My new "haircut" is great! But also the water here does a nicer job of washing - the hair feels better, more body or something. No chemicals? Just out of the dug well...

I gave up and threw the wood ashes on the driveway, almost far enough from the stream, and hope it will sink into the ground before spring runoff. The composter is buried still. It was 4 above freezing today but not much help.

That eaves trough that is destructing: Even if I had noticed it earlier, I could have done nothing except beg help from...? NO way I am clambering through 3 feet of hard snow to try to fix something way over my head! That something being a huge chunk of ice. So I live on! The eaves trough will not be missed.

The heavy grey day did not energize me. The news of my friend did but only long enough to pour out my fury. An early night, with Norman Cousins for a bit.
