Today I’m thankful for working parts. Oh, not for me, but for the Dad MOL! So far my parts are all working okay, but I do take it slowly up and down the steps these days. The Dad is getting older and some of his parts haven’t quite been working the way they should. So the Dad has been off to some repair shops.
A good while back the Dad had cataract surgery to fix his eyes. He was, shall we say, thrifty, and went with the single vision procedure for distance vision. That didn’t work out that good since he didn’t consider the in between vision like working on the computer and reading. He should have gotten the multivision lenses but he didn’t . Not too long ago he went and got a prescription for progressive lens glasses. Now he can see again.
Then, he’s always had a nose problem, congested lots, so his smeller wasn’t very good. It’s funny though because the Mom says he smells quite often. Then, the huh happened, yep, more and more too. The Mom would say something and the Dad would say huh? The Dad said he wasn’t paying attention but the Mom didn’t think that was it.
So, the Dad got a referral to an ENT Doctor to address both of those. The nose is pretty much cleared up now and the Dad says he can breathe easy. again. The Dad has, according to the Doctor and the Audiologist, mild to moderate hearing lost in both ears. The Dad is going on Monday to get his new hearing aids.
So, today I thankful for new working parts for the Dad. Just think, now he can see us and see what we need. And soon he’ll be able to hear us when we meow for something. And now that his nose is cleared up he can smell whenever we…oh, never mind that one, we’ll stick with two outta three!
