Sometimes there are medical emergencies I just can't ignore. Unlike my "Lovary" that I keep putting off (actually, I did get an ultrasound appt. for the 13th) this morning I woke up with a VERY imflamed eye. By 8am I had called my fabulous opthomologist at his office, on his cell phone, and FINALLY at home. I am sure it's not how he wanted to start his weekend, but he was fabulous about coming in and diagnosing my issues. (Well, one of my issues.) Apparantly I have a severe bacterial cornea infection. Doesn't that sound fun? It hurts like a sonofagun, and since he had to dialate my left eye, it's now swollen, and red, and watery and light sensitive. Also, you know when you get poked in the eye and it makes your nose run . . . I feel like I've got a water faucet attached to my face next to this bum eye. Quite the picture of lovliness since I keep jamming a tissue up my nose so it won't run. (Yes, just like Nate does!) I'm on mega eye drops (antibiotic and steriod) and hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow. Or maybe I'll have a super strong eye ball due to the steriods. I just keep thinking, "how bad would it stink to totally lose sight?" or have this feeling more often?" I shouldn't complain since it could be worse. I do, however, think we will be seriously saving for some lasik surgery for me asap. Hope everyone is having a great (er) Saturday morning!
