Infected

I will spare you the image of my eyes unless you chose to see it here. But needless to say I woke up on Friday morning with my right eye in some pretty extreme pain. It was red, watering and I couldn't look at even trace amounts of light. Of course I called the ophthalmologist but they couldn't get me in for a week, or so the receptionist said. When I saw my PCP she called and got me in that day. It was a rough Friday going all over the Boston area. Jon had to come home from work early to take me to the specialist and I couldn't wear blee when I walked to my PCP because my vision was so messed up.

But a bunch of money later and my eye is starting to not be red anymore and is feeling better. I have this temporary contact in that is acting like a bandage to help heal the wound on my cornea that needs to be removed on Tuesday. And I need to keep giving myself eye drops four times a day. I've never had pink eye before.

I just pray that this is the worst of it and that I can finally heal for good this time around. My problems started early in the summer and I got some mediocre treatment and ended up just living with the discomfort that occurred some mornings.

That is it for me for tonight. Today was actually pretty good and I will write about that this week. I will also write about the new blocks that I am carving! Woo hoo! I have paper torn and ready to go and two blocks in the works with plenty of ideas flowing.

Happy Monday!

I need to take my eye drops now! But I'm doing better thanks for the prayers and well wishes.
