Today we stay home. A day, when we do not have to go anywhere, is very appreciated since days without any special appointments seem to become rarer and rarer.
So it was a couple of days ago on Monday that we paid the Bunnings Store in Wollongong a visit after Peter had seen his dentist in Corrimal. We bought some paint for the bathroom, 3 Sanding Blocks (coarse, medium and fine), as well as a very solid stepping stool.
In the afternoon Peter went to see his optometrist in Dapto. Peter needs her to sign for him that his vision is still alright for driving. She did a lot of vision tests and then said, that his vision had very much deteriorated. On the day his eyesight was so bad that she could not give him permission for renewal of his driver’s license. (The renewel is due by the end of May. She prescribed some special eye-drops for dry eyes. Peter has to use them four times a day. The optomotrist wants to test Peter’s eyes again on Friday after Easter.
Yesterday Peter went to see his skin specialist in Corrimal. She did a bit more skin freezing on some spots on his head. From Corrimal we went to Fairy Meadow to the Leisure Coast Deli and Fruit Market, where we bought quite a lot of fruit, Vegies and a few other things. They have for instance vere good sour dough bread!
Monika came in the evening after work and made a phone call for us as promised. She contacted someone who can arrange for someone to come to our place to assess our special age related needs. Even though at the moment we can still somehow manage everything, we thought it may be better to get on a waiting list so that when we definitely do need some help we’ll be able to call on someone other than our children who definitely may not be available on a permanent basis and probably also with a lot of difficulty on some short notice.
Peter still did not get back his other hearing aids. This is a bummer!
