not your ordinary day~

my day started off normal, clock in do not pass go and precede directly to starbucks for morning espresso shots by your favorite baristas...so midday we had a break in the action and i asked my boss if she could measure my eyes as it had been a while and i have been noticing some changes in the right eye and i had i a new frame i wanted to get new lenses in....so long story short she says, you need to see the retinal specialist as you have fluid behind your retina ! and i say what? silently freaking out!
so she makes the appointment stat, i go and thank goodness my cousin works there, and more long story short after getting dye injected into my arm that goes to my eyes and pictures are taken, the doctor tells me that i have abnormal blood vessels growing behind my retina leaking fluid and close to the optic nerve as he is showing me the pictures and the treatment is getting injections(needle in the eye) with a chemo drug 3times at 6week intervals....and i say still in shock f*uck! and he would like to do it as soon as possible and my cousin says today? and he said yes and i say f*ck!!

so here i am getting numbing drops and other gobbity gook put in my eye, before they can stick the needle in my eye loaded with the chemo drug and as added excitement for afterwards the dye that was injected in my arm makes your pee this very bright yellow! so all in all it was a pretty exciting day!!! so you will have to wait another 6weeks before we can do this all over again!!!

needless to say i am so glad i work for my eye doctor as i would had blown this getting my eyes examined longer.........

and i did have 2glasses of prosecco tonight, i thought i was deserving of that!!

Yikes... That sounds like serious stuff. A little pampering is in order. Take care. Hugs and kisses to all the two legs & four legs.
