Thanks to all of y'all who have been by and the nice comments about how much better I seem. Trust me when I tell you that my frame of mind is pretty erratic these days. Yesterday sucked.
I woke up and saw that my left eye was deep red. Since this the eye that had received cataract surgery a couple years ago (and chronicled here), I panicked. I am seriously paranoid about my vision. I tried some drops to no avail and on closer inspection, I noticed a small pocket of white stuff on my lower lid that screamed,
"Infection!". Yuck. I called Dr. Jamie, my cute Harvard man ophthalmologist, and shouted for help. They scheduled me to come in today and he diagnosed an infection, told me to come back in a month and ordered a scrip for antibiotic ointment. I stopped and made my follow up appointment at the desk and while I was at it, I scheduled my annual exam in December -- easier than trying to remember to call. The nice office assistant told me they were sending my scrip over the Internet to my pharmacy and it would probably be ready in about two hours so I headed for home.
Two hours later, I headed to my pharmacy and they said my scrip was ready and I told them not to hurry because I'd be back after I did some shopping there. My pharmacy is also a "deep discount" store snd has bargains on all sorts of things like groceries, paper products, closeouts on all sorts of things for your home and the regular drug store stuff. I prefer it to The Evil Empire and the mere pennies' difference is bupkas when the price of gas factors in as it's closer to my home.
An impulse buy was a big bouquet of assorted fall flowers for $3.98. They now are gracing my coffee table and make my humble home look happier.
At any rate, I'm still here and trying mightily to get caught up with everything as well as visiting all of you. I hope to have a regular routine set next week.
