Finally, I completed all the requirements for my cataract operation. I went for two consecutive days at the hospital. My biometry was done the other day. My opthalmologist scheduled me as the last of his patients although I was there earlier than the others. They use a different instrument.

Biometry is the process of measuring the power of the cornea and the lengthof the eye and using that to determine the ideal intraocular lens power. If this calculation is not performed or if it inaccurate, then patients may be left with a significant refractive error.

I had the IOL Master (hope I got it right)an ultrasound biometry using infra-red laser light. There are so many patients, mostly seniors needing cataract operation so everything is scheduled.

I haven’t visited WordPress for a while now. So really sorry, I haven’t read most of your posts yet. This rainy weather makes me lazy.

Thank God for your prayers. Josef came home last Wednesday night. Jovy fetched him from the hospital. He is on sick leave until Monday. Now, I am so careful when I go out in the garden, have to put OFF lotion first before going out. It is rainy season here and mosquitoes are everywhere especially at night.

Nissa had rashes two days ago. She also had fever because of tonsillo-pharyngitis. After two hospital visits, the rashes have subsided and she could eat properly now. She told me early this morning that she and Obet have their annual executive check-up today. It is a privilege provided by the bank for managers and up.

I always get nervous now every time there is someone sick in the family. It started with Alden when he was ill due to cancer. If there is one thing I pray everyday for, it is good health for all family members, relatives and friends. There is nothing better than being in God’s grace and mercy.

A big thank you for reaching thirteen years now of being cancer-free. It is a big blessing but I am always grateful for everyday blessings.

Have a happy week ahead.

Josef and Jovy went to the hospital yesterday afternoon. Josef had fever. After a series of tests, he was negative of Covid but positive of Dengue. They waited until 12am at the Emergency Room before a private room was available because he had to be placed under infectious diseases. No one is allowed to enter the room except the medical personnel and nurses. Jovy came home around 5am, we didn’t have enough sleep because I was monitoring them. She had to report for work at 3pm, bring clothes and the groceries I bought for Josef. He could not ask anyone at the hospital. He is all alone. Jovy has to bring the items to the nurse station. Sad😒 They also saw something in his thyroid which needs an EENT. I hope it’s nothing complicated.

An hour ago, one of the nurses at OPD at the hospital called me and he told me that I am scheduled for biometry for my eyes at 12 noon tomorrow. I asked him if they could postpone it for a week, maybe by then, Josef would have left the hospital. I could not just leave the house because mom is afraid of being alone. Hopefully, my opthalmologist would understand. If worse comes to worse, next week I have to go to the hospital.

I need your prayers please for Josef to get well soon and for the whole family too.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH❤😘🌺

The pitter patter of raindrops on an early morning

Fresh cup of coffee

A cup of mango orange tea

Sunny side up with toasted bread

Quick hug from our fur babies

Freshly laundered sheets

Flowers in the garden

Finding another book to read

Afternoon naps

Cozy socks

Deep conversations with friends

Surprise call from a friend

Receiving a letter from a snail mail

Smiles, smiles smiles.

Waking up early to see the sunrise.

Catching the morning breeze on your face

A well-tended garden

Inspiring homilies from your favorite priests

Meeting new friends

Being at peace with one’s self

Crying with joy

A new day, a new beginning

Then the story begins again.

Morning comes softly

In the gentle whispers of the breeze

A kaleidoscope of orange, blue and purple

The sun is slowly showing its face.

Like a flower slowly showing its petals,

I see your serene face

Anticipating what the day will bring.
