I have had an odd week dealing with my eye. Last week on Saturday my eye started acting up. If I rubbed my left eye, it was painful in the corner of my eye.
My daughter gave me some great advice. She said, “Gee Mom, just don’t rub it”.
By the time Tuesday rolled around, it was really bothering me. I could feel it every time I blinked. You can see in the picture above that my left eye is swollen. UGH.
I’m not one to mess with my eyes. If there is something wrong, I investigate. I can’t imagine my life not being able to stitch. So on Tuesday I went into the doctor. She looked at it and put me on antibiotics. I have a….
10 day supply. I’m going to hang out and take them.
My doctor suggested that I make an appointment with my eye doctor if things aren’t better in 10 days.
I don’t feel like my vision is impaired. That’s good news!!
After a few days on the meds with warm compresses a few times a day, things are getting better. My left eye is feeling much better…now my right eye is watering like crazy. I am guessing it’s all related but who knows.
I’m giving myself the few more days on antibiotics before I even think about it.
I’ve looked at my eye a million times assessing the swelling. I didn’t realize how noticeable it was until Kalissa took this picture of me. I was sure someone would ask me about it so I decided to just write and tell you about…so that’s my eye and the story about what’s going on.
