    OK for the last year or two my life has gone to hell
    2 years ago I buy a 4K TV and only get to see one 4K movie. A chick flick I bet.
    My eyes have diminished so bad I can't see any of the lettering on TV.
    She took away my keys too.
    My vision has gotten real bad in the lat few months. What used to be bright lights here in the house I now have to look at them to see if they are on.

    The doc that saved my vision 20 years ago showed me a test of the blood flow to my retina, I need to go bak and have that checked again.
    I need to have the better half search the imterweb for an eye specialist that can restore the blood flow.
    My blood vessels are calcifying.
    That is why I lost my legs abd can't have another kidney transplant.
    I was having delusional moments about a 1/3 hpur of dialysis but we finally got that figured out.
    The doc shortrnrd my time :15 minutes about MAD by April I WOULD JUST LOSE IT FOR AN HOUR.
    tHEN i WAS ok. i HAVE HAD BRAIN SCANS, nri AND CAT SCANS FOR MONTHS. tHEY EVEN WENT SO FAR AS HEART SURGERY BECAUSE OF A MURMUR IN THE AORTIC VALVE. iT HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A COW,S VALVE, sOME NURSES TELL ME THEY STILL HEAR A MURMUR SO i GUESS i BETTER GO HAVE IT CHECKED BY THE HEART DOC.
    i DO HAVE MORE ENERGY AND recover quicker from minor excursions.

    I still have my Race Camaro locked up in storage. Someone needs to buy it.
    I can't race with no legs or eyesight.
    So I might as well take her on a nice vacation.We're remodeling the house too.

    Had a hailstorm damage the roof and siding.
    Got the roof done, Aiding will be here next week.
    We have had a couple water leaked in the house , When we got back with that new TV she goes to pee and the bathroom has flooded from a busted water line.
    We got some floor warp age but didn't want to incur the $1000 deductible.
    The second bath>s shut off valve sprang a leak and ruined floor in 3 rooms and hall. Since I can't do poo we called State Farm. They have been good aout the 25 year old roof, the siding so now they are doing the floos.
    We have ceramic tile in the bath now.

    State Farm called in ServPro/
    DO NOT LRT SERVPRO on your property unless you have skab floors.
    Theier commercial is a LIE they don't leave it like it never hsppenedf. They destroyed my floors Ripped out big sections of carpet even took it down to the first subfloor of OSB. That 2nd laasyer of particle board was smooth but hatws water,Anyway the BIL fixed the floor back to level so I can wheel around. Now it has to come out because its 3/ " thisk and wwe need that 2nd under layment to be level with the 3 ceramic floors and no more caret to roll on.

    Themoney should hold out as we got a good check for my van a handicap Rampvan that was valued for a lot more than a standard Toyota Sienna van. I had a wreck a sideswipe of a small SUV because I could not see it at the stoplight.
    Angle of the sun, brakes weren't lit,etc is my story.
    i swereved to miss them but being hand controls I
    m a little slo at responding. It was better than plowing dead on in the back causing bad injuries.

    Can't see poo, 4K TV was a waste
    have no legs
    I have hospital bed, a hoyer lift, a seat belt on my wheelchairs Camaro I have owned since 1978 I need to sell and NEVER LET SERVPRO on your property.
    We have increased my dialysis time as the last conclusion the fluid was coming off to fast. I have suffered since April with lots of ER visits and time in a rehab nursing home. I'm home and with no more episodes.
    There may be more but I can't think of it at the moment.

    TOM

    Hate to hear about your health. Hope the docs are keeping you comfortable. I would hate to know what it is like being blind and i hope you find a doctor to slow it down.
    2nd that about servepro. They tried like hell to rip me off after hurricane Ike jacked my house.
    Good luck and take care.

    You are doing what you can by seeking out the right doctors and right treatments. Hopefully they can do something with your eyes. That would make your life much better.

    Glad to see you're at least still hanging in there. Just remember there's always somebody out there who has it worse. Just keep on keeping on as long as you're able.

    All of us eventually go down the same path. I hope your travels will be as peaceful as can be. Enjoy the present time as best you can, given the frail bodies we live in never provide us a guarantee for the future...

    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

    Therefore be at peace with God,
    whatever you conceive Him to be,
    and whatever your labors and aspirations,
    in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

    From the Desiderata
