An Excuse Blog

So I did something to my left eye. It’s probably just a scratch, maybe from my contacts. There’s a good chance it’ll be much better by today. At least I hope it will be as I have a 9am doctor appointment it took me weeks to get. I need to be able to drive :-) I’ve worn contacts for decades and never had anything like this. But life is full of new experiences, LOL. If it’s this bad tomorrow, I’ll go to the doctors just to rule any bigger problem. On the upside, I managed to get grocery shopping and helping Wizard remove old bark from a large front hill done before the eye got really,  non-stop watering and unable to keep it open, irritated.

So how’s your Wednesday going?

    Ack. I hope it’s better by the time you have to go to your appt. :hugs:

    I have a new guest hanging out in my bathtub. Actually, he’s more of a patient than a guest. His name is Nellis and he’s a white-breasted nuthatch I rescued from the bank parking lot. I just did a write up of the adventure on my blog. I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night and I’m draggin’ butt today, but it’s all good.

    Sounds like either an allergic reaction to something on that hill or you got a fleck of something in it. Whatever it is, ACK! And OUCH! Good luck with driving, the appointment, and the eye! Many hugs and healing thoughts. Hang in there and keep us posted. 🤗

    Uhm…I haven’t done much this week so far. Ugh on me! Today. Today I shall be productive. 😏

    I sure hope your eye is doing better. It does sound like something may have scratched your eye. You did say you were cleaning up bark. I’ve had very fine pieces of bark go into my eye before and cause me a ton of grief. What did the doctor have to say?

    I bought all new bedding for the spare room (also my computer room) for when Harrison and his folks come to stay. It’s really nice. Even though I bought it through Walmart it was high end stuff on clearance prices. Needless to say, I’m pleased and so is Spunk. It’s his new place to sleep the day away :-D .

    Went for a massage today. Had every intention on having my shoulder worked on but when I got off the couch last night something was wrong with my right hip. We worked on it ;).

    Sure hope you are having a great day!

    B.E., it appears your post vanished. I just now went to read it and so that I imagined it :-) (I didn’t go on the computer until now to rest my eye). I hope your houseguest is okay…but with the vanishing post, I’m afraid to ask.

    My eye is improving, and frankly, I’m surprised but very pleased. It’s still scratchy and a bit swollen, but it’s like a 60% improvement from yesterday.

    Hope you get more sleep tonight!

    Silver, I had to reschedule my appointment. We waited until almost 5pm but my eye kept gettine worse. I called and told them I couldn’t rule out pink eye — they quickly rescheduled for two weeks. I couldn’t have driven today anyway.

    My eye is improving a lot over today so fingers crossed. It’s probably a combination of things. My eye wasn’t right before doing the bark, but it got really bad right after, so who knows. I’m doing the usual things like compresses, eye drops and warm compresses. No contacts or makeup.

    I hope your knee is improving too. I’m thinking that contributed to you not doing much so far. It seems like these random injuries suck more out of us than they once did (or maybe that’s just me??)

    Hope your week gets more productive if you’re up to it!

    Viki, yes we were cleaning bark off a hill to change it out to new bark next week. I never felt an actual injury though. It could be from the bark or maybe a combination of a scratch aggravated by dust from raking the bark off the hill. Last night, I’d have bet we were going to Urgent Care (walk in clinic) today, and then this morning it was beginning to improve and now I’d say it’s 60% better. I’ll take it!

    Ouch on your hip. I’ve done that (it’s my RA and maybe yours does it too). It really painful. I hope the massage helped and you booked another appointment for your shoulder. If it helps keep doing it!

    I’d be excited to find good bedding at Walmart too! You scored! And so did Spunk :-) Harrison and his parents are going to love it when they come visit!
    Hope your hip feels better!

    My guest was released this morning, but later, I didn’t think it was wise to have a post about it for the world to see. Of course, I talked about it here, too, so derp on me.

    B.E., ah, okay. I understand :-) I’m glad your guest was able to be released.
