Thankful Thursday - Another late & quick update

Kinda good and not so good report after seeing my eye specialist a couple days ago.  

Good - my vision has improved a bit more from last week; last week it was 20/250 AND this week it is between 20/100 and 20/150.
Not so good - I kinda knew this but I was hoping it might have changed; my specialist could not say whether or not my vision would improve or how much more if it did - he was hopeful it would.
Also not so good - my specialist still has a couple more procedures to try if needed HOWEVER they are around a minimum of 3 months away.

Now since I am not working that means no income - I have money for dog food and some treats but that is about it and current bills are taken care of for the next few months but any possible additional expenses will have to be avoided.  And the issue of disability retirement is still a possibility altho I REALLY don't want that - not so much due to my visual acuity but because my vision can change substantially within a few hours.

Otherwise, we are doing fine - the Beaglebratz had a rousing game of tussle in the livingroom earlier this evening  which I ALWAYS love to watch.  And last evening, my nephew was over and removed an old ugly bush in the backyard - some of the brush is stacked up against the fence which gives the Beaglebratz another place to search for critters. 
Shiloh still lets me know when I am at the computer and he "needs" to be fed and as you saw in a pic from yesterday, Diva Shasta is still carrying her toy as she trots around the house (indoors) to let me know she NEEDS outside, NOW!   Since our weather is trying to decide (for the 3rd or 4th straight nite) whether or not to storm and cut power, I think I will go while the gettin'is good.

More and more tussles.

Shiloh is ready for bed - where is Diva Shasta?

Oh - there's the Diva Shasta - already snoozin'.

Good to hear there is improvement. One would hope for better soon. A 3 month wait? Sigh...
