Out of Commission

Well folks, I started on a piece for Road to California, but it's on hold indefinitely right now, because it turns out that I have a corneal abrasion = scratched eye. :( It seems that all the eye itching from hay fever, resulted in a nice big scratch across the fron of my eye.

I currently have a "bandage contact" on my left eye, to allow the surface of the eye to heal properly and smooth. This is just about the worst thing I have ever gone through, so I highly recommend you NEVER rub your eyes. Ugh!

Right now my eye continuously runs tears, and the vision is really poor (Dr tells me this will improve though), but for now that eye sees like there is gel smeared all over my eye.

So, for the time being, I'm stuck with pretty much nothing to do but listen to audio books on my ipod. I'm "re-reading" Harry Potter right now.

I am going to try to go to the Minnesota State Fair for awhile tonight, I don't want to miss out on everything fun over this. I'll stay as long as I can, and bring the patches and tape just in case. :( Crappy week!

I've been wondering where you were. Hope your eye gets better soon. Enjoy the fair if you can.

Ouch! My dad got a sliver of steel in his eye once at work and just the thought of scratched eyes gives me the heebie-jeebies. I hope you heal up and feel better soon!

Hope that eye heals quickly. It's amazing what we take for granted. Get well soon. Carolyn - Kerrville, TX
