It’s official; I heard back from the doctors today and I can start taking Eliquis again and ditch the fucking needles. Thank god.
Meanwhile, I did some sleuthing and identified the model number of my missing sunglasses, Ray-Ban 4115. Apparently they aren’t available right now and I have no idea if they will be produced again; this makes me sad because they were hands down the best pair of sunglasses I’ve ever owned. I’ve got the local optometrist looking to see if they can get me a pair, but it looks like I’m going to have to find something else pretty soon.
