Aye Booger.

I have just enough time to give you an update on the ol’ eye. I’m supposed to keep track of these things, per the doctor, and I thought, hey I can use my blog to do that!

First let me note that the pain/discomfort has increased. It mildly hurts when I blink now, and if I keep my eye closed it just is downright painful. This has caused for an interesting twitching sensation in my right eye, which by the way annoys me. When I get annoyed, my eye twitches. It’s a vicious cycle, so now I need to calm down to get the twitching to stop. The twitching is very uncomfortable.

There is still only a slight swelling/puffiness to the eye. Which is good, because I’d rather it not look like my wife was beating me. What would I tell the guys at the range? “No really Jimmy John, I have an eye infection. My old lady did not haul off an’ backslap me because I came home 2 hours late smelling of whisky and strippers.”

Other then a slight blurring, my vision seems to be fine. This is a good thing as that means that the eyeball itself is A-ok. If it gets worse, then what ever it is may have spread to my eyeball and that would be bad.

At this time there is a slight discoloration to the skin under the eye. Is it the pox? I don’t know yet. Only time will tell. There is no itching. The only drainage I’m getting is a slight watering of the eyes. There is no puss. However, this morning when I woke up the eye booger that I had was massive and has reformed twice.

Since Machelle brought it up, I will address the issue of my going to the Blogmeet next weekend. If I have something contagious I will NOT be going. Ktreva may go by herself, but I won’t be coming with. I’m sure none of you want this and I don’t know if the wolves would be susceptible to it, but I’m sure Laughing Wolf doesn’t want to find out. Before someone smarts off, I know, you're all praying for something contagious!

Hope it isn't contagious, and that you can make it down.

NOOOO! I need you to be there so I can taunt you and tempt my karmic bitch-slap yet again.

Just curious, but did you go see a regular family doctor or an eye doctor?

A visit to an eye doctor (if not already done) may give you a better idea of what is going on since family doctors don't have the specialty training of the eye that eye doctors do.

Also have they ruled out a serious sinus infection?

When I get really really bad sinus infections it effects my eye (just one) and it gets all puffy and red, leaks stuff and hurts to blink.

That's actually a good idea. Why don't you make an appt. with your friendly neighborhood eye specialist?
