MOM-versations #2



8 June 2015

Mom and I have a monthly date with her ophthalmologist for eyeball shots. With an early diagnosis of macular degeneration, mom agreed to Lucentis shots. I think she is very brave.

When we enter on the main level, we walk straight to the elevator. Mom always says, “I’m going to get a good long drink of water” while I push the call button on the elevator.


ME:     Of course you are.

MOM:  I think that I am healthier now that I drink more water.

ME:     Well, it’s important to stay hydrated.

MOM:  No. Really. It keeps me regular. So many people I know have to use laxatives. But, not me.
