Hi everyone

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. We have been unseasonably cold here so haven't spent as much time in the pool that I would like. Work is going good. I do love the challenge of getting everything done that I had planned on getting done. Twelve hours a week is just about right. Only a few more months and done till May of next year. Looking forward to that too.

Well I got shampoo in my eye and figured that was what was causing the eye pain but after a week of pain I knew something was up. I called my eye specialist this morning and she got me in right away knowing all the potential problems I could have. She asked me if I had been out in the sun because the outer layer of the eye was inflamed and damaged. She put me on predisolone eye drops for the next couple days till I see her again on Friday. One of the problems with taking pain killers is that you don't always feel pain when you should feel it so that you know if something is wrong. Hope the drops work. Also being referred to a surgeon to remove the tiny pampaloma virus warts surrounding and on my eye lids. I have at least twenty of them. Some more noticeable than others.

Hope my son gets a plane ticket soon. We have plans on Labor Day that he is supposed to be included in. It has been about two years since I have seen him.

Take care everyone!! smile

I am so sorry about your eye. I hope the drops take care of it very quickly. Did they diagnose Iritis or Uveitis? I hope your son makes it for a visit. We don't get to see our FL kids/grands near as often as we would like. It is tough when your kids are away.

Thanks Sue, ValsMum and Possi,

Thanks for all the well wishes. My eye feels better even after two days of drops. Still sore and bloodshot. The eye doctor said it was inflammed but said she was not diagnosing Uvitis at this time but wanted to see how my eye was doing after the steroid drops. I go back on Friday morning.

Got the call today from the doctors office to schedule an appointment so they can remove all the warts around my eyes. Sounds gross doesn't it? Hope they are able to get them all this time.

Thanks again!

Thanks again everyone!!!

Had another eye appointment today and the inflammation is a lot better but have to stay on the drops for another week. The eye doctor told me if I would have waited any longer it would have been full blown Uvitis. Glad I went in when I did.

Have a great weekend everyone. grin

Glad you were able to get the uveitis headed off at the pass. Get well soon. Have an extra piece of pie.
