This morning at 6 am , my wife and I left headed south. She had an appointment for surgery on her foot in Marble Falls TX. When she woke her eye was bothering her , and she washed it out . Now we are off to see the Wizard.

Once we got on our way it became apparent that this was more than an irritated eye. So as soon as the hour became reasonable , She started calling her local M.D. Sorry office closed till Monday! HERE IS WHERE THE MISTAKE IS MADE!!!!! The smart choice seemed to be to call the podiatrist and ask him to take care of getting some eye drops for her eye , and so she did. He said they would take care of it when she got there since we were just minutes away.

Neither of us expected the surgery center to refuse to do the foot surgery because of this eye infection. So--------------repeat in 2 weeks.

She has asked me on numerous occasions to amputate ---but I refuse. This normally active woman has been out of sorts with a foot problem or another for over 2 years. I have seen her handle pain over these last 20 + years and this is the first time I have seen her surrender to her pain. She usually just works through it and goes on. It is very frustrating not to be able to help any more than just kind words and prayers.

At least this doctor ( a kid -- 2 years out of school) found the problem . A microscopic bone sliver stuck into a nerve. Found it by testing in 2 mm sections instead of 4mm. Amazing!!!
Minor surgery to remove it-----but for an eye infection!!!

So the saga continues and I will update Ya ll when we RIDE SOUTH FOR BLOOD-REDUX

thanks for your time
