So, the temperature has been up and down, and that usually means one thing for me....
A person can develop a cold.
And when I say cold, I mean a stupefying, fill every cavity of your head and chest with crap, dizziness inducing monster that turns me into a freakin' baby.
So, I've been downing all manner of stuff in order to kill it. No luck.
And yesterday, I arose to my right eye as red as the devil.
Now, for those of you who haven't been keeping up, six months ago I had a couple of surgeries on my eyes. Cataracts had made it impossible for any prescription to work effectively, and with the really good government health care, I took advantage and had the lenses in both eyes replaced. The first one, the right eye, was completed in early October, and in late October, the left eye was completed.
It's not a bad surgery, as they go....I was a bit leery of people putting needles and scalpels near my eyes, but I had a good surgeon and the surgeries went very well.
But the day after they completed the left eye, the right eye took a turn for the worse; I developed a staph infection in my eye, and it was dangerously close to the incision that they made to replace the lens, and if it had gotten in to that cut.....all sorts of bad could've happened. Worst case.....I coulda done a remake of Columbo.
But my surgeon stepped up, and after a huge amount of antibiotic and several eye drops every hour of every day, the infection was defeated.
But I have nightmares of the morning I woke up with an eye as red as the devil, and the inability to see out of it...and the trip to the emergency room and all the gloom and doom that accompanied that early morning...before salvation was achieved.
So, waking up yesterday and seeing that eye like that again....well, it as all I could do not to vomit.
All is well....it's a cold. And the resulting stuff in the sinus cavities behind the eyes made for one seriously bloodshot eye. But a liberal dose of eye drops and things are well. And everything is functioning normally.
Well, my lungs are coughing up gunk. And my nose is Rudolphian. And I'm acting like a baby.
But other than that, things are cool.
How's your day going?
