The missus went to the doctor today to be examined for possible laser surgery on her cataracts and was cleared for it on July 20th. He won’t do the surgery, but he does the exams. Funny thing was that he said nothing about her blood pressure or diabetes causing a problem, though he knew of both. Maybe the bleeding in her eye was better, or maybe not. They didn’t take her blood pressure, but they DID take her eye pressure.
Her diabetes doctor had acted like both needed to be nearly perfect or they wouldn’t operate. I have to wonder if she was just trying to hang onto my wife as an active patient to get more money. Then again, did this doctor slide things through just so he and his buddy could get THEIR money? I don’t trust ANY of them any more.
Incidentally, despite an 8:10 appointment, we were there for 2-1/2 hours this morning, most of it WAITING and traveling between forty-leven little exam rooms with a half-dozen different techs. Despite us both having breathing problems, they got spastic if our masks slipped out of place. They did their best to keep us standing all the time, but I’d taken the missus in her wheelchair, so it was only me that suffered. It’s like they’re trying to kill off us old folks.
