Lu, if her eyesight has got her safely into her 91st year, I think it must be exceptionally good vision!

This is a routine check hun - and very wise.

Please don't worry - your Aunt sounds amazing and I really don't think there's anything to fret about. :hug: xxx

Hi Lu,

I hope everything turns out well for both of you. You and your aunt are in my thoughts and prayers.

My grandma is over 110 and she’s reaching that point that even her skin gets bruised at the slightest pressure. I wish I can see her.

You are very lucky to have your aunt (an elder) in your life. They sure deserve our respect and care.
