Mom's Taxi

9:50 - Amigo gets teeth cleaned, staff there remind me to call orthodontist.
10:40 - La Petite gets teeth cleaned
Some time in here I have to make sure Amigo gets lunch. My appointment at the DDS is tomorrow.
11:45 - Grandma picks up Amigo for weekly noon organ recital
Amigo will go home with Grandma so that La Petite and Mom can go to their early afternoon appointments.
Now make sure La Petite gets lunch - a rare chance to spend time with her alone.
1:20 - I get my eyes checked, prescriptions renewed, order new contacts, find out I have "some cataract growth" starting in one eye, but it's "nothing to worry about yet." Can a cataract be insignificant?
1:40 - La Petite gets eyes checked, prescriptions renewed, and orders new contacts and glasses.
Go pick up Amigo. Come home.

Oh, that's right. I still need to think up and create supper. And Husband is working an outrageously long day that started at 3 AM, so we have no idea when he'll be home. We only know he'll be exhausted.

July is the only month we can schedule days like this. I'm home from school, La Petite's work hours are winding down, we're back from vacation, and Amigo hasn't left for camp yet. We have enough freedom and flexibility that when the crazy day is over, we can separate before we drive each other crazy.

No, a cataract is generally not insignificant. Note, generally. Please tell me this was not at the Pearl Vision or the like place. I would follow this up further to be sure.

Cataracts can be "age related" (which means we really don't know what causes them) or they can be related to trauma or certain diseases like diabetes.

So I would get myself checked by your internist as well as an opthalmologist, but if it's a case of early onset of age related cataracts, there's probably not much to do until it gets so you can't drive at night.
