My blood test came back fine.  I learned that my brain is all intact and working correctly.  I didn't find what is causing the eye pain which is getting worse.  The doc. is trying a preventative medicine.  I have a carotid ultra sound done on Wed.  Plus I have to take an aspirin a day.  If the meds don't help and nothing shows up on the test I get to go to a super neurologist.  I just want to be "normal" again.

I took R to the New Balance shoe store.  She has never been fitted for a pair.  The store has a new machine-to me-that you stand on and get a reading of what is wrong and needs to be corrected.  I found that my arches are starting to sag-or fall.  This time I got walking shoes with a neat support.  The salesman showed me how to tie my shoes to tighten them around my heel.  What a difference!  The store also has sandals and dress shoes.  And they carry narrow.  So I'll be back. 

We had a lot of rain today but tomorrow is going to be sunny. 

Take care,
