Yesterday was a busy day.  It started out with a much needed haircut.  I picked Bill up afterward to go to his eye doctor appointment.  The appointment was at 10 am and they took us directly back.  But not to the doctor yet.....they needed to recheck his eyes.  After that was done they dilated  his eyes and sent us back to another waiting room.  We met with the doctor and he agreed that Bill needed surgery.  We found out what Medicare wouldn't pay and what our share would be.  Gulp...Gulp....  Then into the scheduling office where the girl explained that she was in training.  Today we meet with the anesthesiologist  and the first surgery is scheduled for the 20th.  On the 28th is the post op appointment and then we expect the second surgery to be sometime in June.

While we were in the doctor's office John Knoll called to say that they were at Picacho Peak.  They came up to visit and go to lunch.  I told them we were still in the doctor's office so we'd call them when we got out.  When we left the doctor's office we called the Knoll's and agreed to meet at the Olive Garden.  It is one of the Knoll's favorite places.

Everyone that knows me knows how challenged I am with the smartphones.  As we were leaving the office I called John and he didn't answer.  A moment later my phone rang and I was trying to figure out how to answer it before the call ended.  John said he heard my call but couldn't figure out how to answer it.  I managed to answer it and say we'd meet them at the mall.  Bill and I had a discussion and pretty soon John says "you forgot to hang up your phone."

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    After a nice lunch with the them we came back to our place.  We spent hours discussing apps, ringtones and how to use the calendar.

It was way too soon to say good by to them but they had a long drive back to  Green Valley.  They will be leaving for the summer in a few days.

We won't be making any plans on leaving until Bill has the second surgery but it will be so much better for him to have good eyesight.
