What a day. Skip this post if you don't want to hear about my poor pitiful self.
Back to Urgent Care. One Eyed Nick, that's me. I woke up Tuesday morning with an eye that wasn't pretty. An eye that was certainly NOT better. Well, they said to come back if it wasn't better so I did. Turned up on their doorstep whimpering "Help". (I felt very puny and pitiful).
The doctor I saw was all over me in a hot second. He did all sorts of new tests, and by golly, he wasn't sure if it was an eye infection or an eye allergy. Three opinions, nobody knows. So, they are treating it as if it is both. I was there for hours, and had to have an IV of antibiotics and prednisone. If I am not significantly improved by tomorrow, I am to come back. And I am to come back on Friday regardless. Finally someone who paid attention to me. And I left with prescriptions for more antibiotics and steroids that Blue Shield actually covered. Nice Dr. Durlocker, sounds like Door Knocker.
My next step after Urgent Care was to go to my dentist to get my new crown put on. Why not just make a day of torturing Nicole? I figured Dr. Wong wouldn't be too scared when he saw me, but he flipped out. FLIPPED OUT. Mild mannered Larry Wong, was certain this swelling/infection whatever was due to what he had done a week ago to my back molar. He tsked and tsked the entire time he was gluing my crown on, and when I got home I had a message from him on my answering machine urging me to go right back to Urgent Care and get x-rays. He knew it must be his fault.
I feel so pampered and loved.
And you know what I am thinking may have been the cause of this huge swelling/itching/redness that is making me a one eyed freak? Remember how Sophie got out on Sunday? And was running around up in the hills for an hour and half? What if she ran through some poison oak or some other plant I am allergic to? I pet her and rub her constantly. I sleep with her for Heaven's sake. What if I got the plant cooties on my hands and touched my eye--thus the allergic reaction?
I may never know what caused this, but you know what? I love my girl and she loves me.
Maybe something Quilty tomorrow Friends. If I can see out of both eyes!
