Good early morning!
I've been up since 4:30am. Not feeling great, shall we say. Thought I should start the blog since I have no idea how long it will take me with breaks and possible dozing sessions--LOL! But you can bet this will be the shortened version...and yet it will be quite long to cover everything! ROFL!
Warning--you know I will honestly tell you what has been going on and it certainly ain't pretty this week. (Don't worry--no pictures of the gross stuff.)
I wish I could get the picture out of my mind, to be honest.
Well, the week started out okay.
Katie came to clean. We had a nice visit, too. Puttery R&R rest of the day.
Had a quiet day. Dead-headed the planters and watered them. In pajamas by early afternoon--LOL! Watching Goliath on Prime with Billy Bob Thorton.
Got the trash to the dunpster, checked the mail, and back in pajamas. Eye bothering me again! By evening it was just as bad as the first time. Obviously not just pinkeye. Never was totally better. Getting streaks of light off the side of that eye once in a while.
When I had been in for pinkeye that doctor had told me if it got worse I should see an eyedoctor because it could be something else. So I called my eyedoctor's office first thing in the morning...waited for him to call me back because he was booked up.
He told me to go to the Walk-In Clinic again because it sounded like I might need to see a specialist and they could refer me...and he would refer me if they called him, if needed, but I should be seen right away.
So Leah and the boys dropped me off at the Walk-In Clinic in the morning. This younger doctor said he could see a blood vessel in my iris--which he'd never seen before. They set me up with an appointment with an eye specialist for 2pm.
We went back to my place because the controller for my chair had arrived and Leah was going to see if that would fix the chair. She needed to run home for her socket wrench set. The boys were playing and fine with me. It is so nice that they are of an age now that they can play well together.
Nope--didn't fix the chair. Had to call them back and order a new "tranformer", too. (Which confused the boys--LOL!) Hasn't come yet. Fingers crossed. I would hate to need a new chair--awk!
Anyways, they dropped me off at the eyedoctor specialist and I have eye ulcers! I have never even heard of them. Apparently common, but can do a lot of damage (I googled them). He gave me a prescription for special eye drops 4X a day and said I had to come back the next day. I said I was starting chemo--but he said he did not want it to wait until Monday. So we made his latest appointment he had open for 3pm--after chemo.
They dropped me off at home. Was actually raining.
Milder and shorter day of chemo on Friday...a much lighter chemo bag...and I pretty much know the routine now.
And I think Leah and I are better than ever!!
Oh, and I had deliveries from Amazon yesterday they told me something was delivered that wasn't...but it came today. The guy across the hall brought it to my door for me because he saw it in the entryway.
There are always bright spots in any day. Something to be grateful for. I'm feeling beaten down, but don't ever count me out. ;)
Have a really nice week.
I truly welcome your comments, emails. and letters. Especially now, my friends. You are my treasures. :)
