The Eyes Had It

As I mentioned yesterday, I had my annual diabetic eye exam yesterday, which involves having my eyes dilated. While sitting in the waiting room, I mentally kicked myself for not having brought my MP3 player because of course you can't read while your eyes go all unfocused after they put the drops into them.

My exam came out showing nothing amiss, and I managed with my prescription sunglasses to limp back to my office, traveling surface streets and staying off the freeway. There I took refuge in a dark room for a while as my eyes slowly recovered.

I was back at Palo Alto Medical Center this morning for my half-yearly diabetes medical check-in. Nothing much has changed. What I really need to do is lose weight. The target is ten pounds. I know I could do it because I did do it after my initial diagnosis.

I would have liked to have gone home after the morning medical appointment (having already logged a full week's worth of work by the time I left the office this morning at 8 AM), but there's an SFSFC Board meeting tomorrow in the Bay Area, so I'll be staying over tonight.
