...not always what you get.
A few days ago Mr. Jenny and I returned home from yet another frustrating and painful day of medical testing.
I was exhausted.
He was exhausted.
"I'm going to check my office," he informed me and wandered off that direction.
"I'm going to check the phone for Doctor call backs," I informed him and wandered off that direction. I went to the phone, pulled my reading glasses off the top of my head...and then something really, really terrible happened.
A few seconds later I stood in his office doorway, shaking and crying like a crazy (or would that be crazier?) woman.
He jumped up from his office chair.
"What is it!??? Was there a message!???"
I just kept crying.
He went and got me water.
Finally I was able to gasp out, "I don't think I can take much more of this! You're not going to believe it but NOW something is wrong with my vision, too!"
I choked down more water and kept crying.
"Okay. Slow down. We'll call the doctor. Tell me what happened."
I shuddered. He looked scared to death.
We are both seriously exhausted from all this.
Finally, in a shaky voice, I said, "Okay. I went to pick up the messages and all the sudden my vision went dark."
He was watching me quite intently.
He very kindly put his hands gently on my forearms.
And then Mr. Jenny smiled at me.
That really, really ticked me off.
"You think this is funny?" I huffed.
"Kind of," he said as he lifted my reading glasses off my face.
He showed me my glasses.
"Is your vision dark now?" he asked me patiently.
Thank Heavens for sweet husbands who have the intelligence to recognize that sunglasses make vision go dark.
We are still cracking up over my mistake.
And yesterday Mr. Jenny asked if I thought I should mention the dark vision to the latest specialist.
I just gave him the stink-eye which he could see VERY clearly because it was NOT concealed under my sunglasses.
PS. Bless you all for your cards and your lovely thoughts and e-mails. We both so appreciate them. It helps. We're hoping for some answers this week. I know a lot of icky things I DON"T have now. Just waiting to see what is wrong. Other than the dark vision that is.
