Today was quite a day. I knew there was a lot to do and it exhausted me just thinking about it. Dwight got up about 6am, which is his normal time when he's not working. I had been up half the night coughing and so I stayed in bed until 7:30. Then I got up and prepared for the day.
I soon realized that neither Dwight nor Dakota were in the house. Dwight sometimes sits on the porch and lets Dakota play in the yard. Nope, not there. I look over into the park. Can't see them. I walk a block down the street and ask a city worker if he's seen them. Nope. I walk back this way and that's when I see them coming through the park. They had walked down to the other end and were hidden from view by the trees. I bet at that point that Dwight wished he was back in the hospital. I blasted him really well for taking off with the dog within 24 hours of being released from hospital.
About 9:30 am, I went to the bank, then to the grocery store. Brought home a few things, lugged them into the house and Dwight put them away. By this time my knees were killing me. Walking on cement floors is not something I do well these days.
We had a sandwich at noon and then it was time to take him to the optometrist. The doctor had requested he have a field test asap. I phoned yesterday and got the appointment but when we got there the receptionist had booked him for an eye exam instead of said field test. I told the optometrist that the doctor wanted a field test to determine whether or not Dwight would be allowed to keep his driver's license, so he said he'd do that instead. Thank goodness he understood because only one examination a year is covered by OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan) unless you have a medical condition. Dwight had an eye exam in January and so he didn't qualify. I questioned this because he now has a medical condition. She is looking into finding out if she can get it covered, but stroke isn't on the list of conditions that allow you to qualify. Go figure.
After the optometrist appointment, I brought Dwight home, had a cup of tea and then headed out to pick Brandon up from school. His Dad has been doing this, but had a meeting today and had asked me to. By the time I got the boys settled at home, I was even more exhausted. Their Dad got home about 4:30pm and I came home and started supper. We had fried pork loin, rice and green beans. For desert we had some peaches.
It's almost 7:30 pm here right now and I'm ready to hit the hay. What a day. Tomorrow is an appointment with the family doctor. The optometrist said the field test looked good and he doesn't see any reason why Dwight's license should be revoked. However, this is the government we're talking about, so we'll have to wait and see.
