bad news/good news

Hi Folks-

So today I’m starting early on the post and we’ll see if I can finish by the time Sharon gets home at 6. Traveled to Burlington today with Sharon and the colors are mostly gone, with the notable exception of the row of maple trees across the lawn in front of the capital. These trees are still magnificent.

So we went to an appointment I had with the Retina Center of Vermont where I’d been referred by local eye doctor Jay Kimberly. The doctor today confirmed that I have a condition called macular pucker. It’s when there’s scar tissue on the macular and it can cause problems with your sight. He said mine was “light to moderate” in its severity and since I can still see fine he recommended that I didn’t need any treatment or intervention. I asked him, and this is the point of me telling you all this, I asked him if the condition got progressively worse and he said no, not generally. To have a physical ailment that is not expected to eventually get worse was such a relief.

The bummer of the day was that the appointment took so long that we couldn’t have lunch before bringing Sharon back to work. While she was waiting for me to get done she had used a Google app to find the restaurants nearby to where we were and she found this really cool sounding place called The Spot. It’s a converted gas station on Shelburne Rd. and it sounded like an awesome place for breakfast or lunch. Anyway, Sharon had to get back so we’ll hopefully check out The Spot some time in the future.
