Good afternoon. No, I did not sleep in this morning. Rather, I had a few phone calls to make, received a couple of calls, and then had to write out some checks to pay bills and get them in the mail before the mailman got here. Phew!!
Before I could post, I needed to check my profile and figure out how to add an email to it so that folks can contact me if they need to. This was in response to Beth's question about how to send me photos to share. You can contact me, and send photos, by using the email in my profile at the top right side of this page. I would love to see your photos.
Yesterday I had an appointment with my eye doctor, and all the news was super good. I have 20/20 vision and no eye diseases. Woo Hoo! The only reason I'll be getting new eyeglasses is because the ones that I'm wearing are really old. I need them for reading small print, plus I have Transitional lenses to keep the light away from my eyes. This was definitely great news.
It seems as though I've been up for a whole day. Mr. Pogo decided it was time for breakfast quite early this morning. He woke me at around 5:30 to let me know that he was hungry. I decided to get up and make breakfast for both of us, with hopes of going back to sleep after we ate. Which I did, for about an hour an a half.
Today I have an interesting newspaper article to share. This a new app called "Pager" that allows patients to order a house call from a physician using their smartphones. At the moment, the service is available on a limited basis in Manhattan and Brooklyn (New York), but it could spread to other cities this year.
Is this not cool? Remember the good old days when your doctor actually came to your house when you were sick in bed? It would mean not having to get out of a sick bed and traveling to the ER just to sit in a waiting room with a lot of other sick people, and quite possible getting even sicker. Hmmm, now I'm wondering what this service will cost.
It's getting late and Pogo is patiently waiting for his lunch, so on that note, I'll take my leave. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
