crap, crap, double crap....

So Saturday I was innocently plucking my eyebrows. I stand in the upper hallway by the big window with a nice little 5x magnifying mirror. I feel something in my right eye and assume that I have dropped an eyebrow hair in there. Uh oh... what do I see?
A big fat white pimple. As I lift my upper eyelid to look, it pops... (sorry, I know this is so gross) I blink a couple of times and hey, its ok.

Sunday morning I realize that my right eye itches. Annoying, but nothing I can't handle. I guess that little pimple is healing up. No problem...

Yesterday morning, I checked it out after I showered and hm....not a good thing (as Martha would say) There are bubbles. I call the Dr's office. They want to see me. (of course they do!!)...

Diagnosis - Herpes in the right eye AND a bacterial infection in the same eye.

Crap.....crap....double crap....

I am on an antibiotic AND the anti-viral.

crap....crap....double crap....

Miss Nancy and Ann are coming today to sew. I am making quiche and fruit salad. We WILL have a good time....

I'm so sorry, Nancy. Hope your better soon.

GARI said...

Is this the same eye? I, too, am sorry. Did they say how you can get herpes in your eye?

Carolyn said...

Whoa - will you ever get rid of that?!?!?!

Nancy, I know how painful that can be! I hope you are feeling better soon. My mom had Shingles in her eye and it was aweful! Steph

I would say something really "smart" but I am being good...suffice it to say that I'm laughing at your DX, not your pain. LOL!
Sometimes you just gotta laugh, 'cause crying is just a waste of tears so hang in there buddy. Hope you are seeing clearly soon. A little pun never hurt anyone, hahaha. Big HUGS, B=)
