Went yetserday to my eye doctor because I have been having trouble seeing. He found busted blood vesels in both eyes and scheduled emergency laser surgery today to close them off and stop the leaking. More work scheduled later on but for now maybe this will help a bunch. This helps explain my kidney failure too because they told me all the small blood vessels to my heart, kidneys and liver are probably experiencing the same fate. This is all due to complications from being diabetic. So I get to rest and make more adjustments to my diet and exercise routine.

No more smoking for you! The sad part is who do I drink beer with now?

beer and cigars

The doctor said nothing about beer but scolded me good for a long while about smoking. Told him I had cut way down and was doing my best to quit, he gave me one of those yeah right looks and I guess I'm not trying hard enough to quit but the possibility of loosing your sight makes it take on new meaning.
Dang it is tough to do though but tougher to make your way around not seeing.
Right now I have a splitting headache, right between the eyes, no joke.
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers too, GOD loves prayers from wheelers!!!

With what you are going through,a few good life changes( bandido )should not be that hard.You will be in my prayers,and yes god does enjoy wheelers prayers...he built our playground for us.(ever seen a natural circle track or dragstrip?)

Just got off the phone with OldGoat, he seems to be feeling better. He said he was kicking back in the recliner getting some much deserved rest. I told him to get off his ass and get Rusty ready for gilmer saturday. We'll see if he makes it. I'm gonna bring the video camera with me this time.
