I have a freaking ulcer on my eye!!!! DUDE!!!!
Let me backtrack, my eye was still red this morning from when I accidently jabbed it with a q-tip yesterday… don’t ask So I went to an eye doctor and he said I had an ULCER… on my eye… DUDE!!! He said it could have happened because my eye got infected after I scratched it yesterday but he said he’s never seen one develop that quickly so I may have had it before the scratch and it just got irriated by the scratch… DUDE!!

So I’m on these eye drops I have to take every hour which SHOULD clear it up in 2 to 3 days.  I have a follow up appointment on Friday… DUDE!!! I’m slightly freaking out.

What the crazy? How do you get an Ulcer in your eye? I mean, doesn’t that mean like a hole or something? Well, don’t freak out though because if the doctor said it should be cleared up in a couple days it doesn’t sound fatal or anything. But seriously – I have never heard of anything like that. Did he say it could be contagious?

Nice Ang “is it contagious”, it’s not pink eye it’s a freaking ULCER. I don’t know what it looks like, he could only find it after he put the dye on my eye and looked through the big eye doctor thingy. I guess it occurs when you hurt you eye and bacteria gets involved. The drops I’m on are some kind of antibacteria kick ass stuff… seriously the instructions say this stuff will kick any bacteria’s ass.

OK I’ve done some research and a cornea ulcer is an open wound on the cornea which occurs when a scratch becomes infected. If the prescription drops do not clear up the ulcer then I’ll need an emergency cornea transplant, Hubby says that means I’ll have a dead guys cornea in my eye… DUDE!

Ok, now you are just working yourself up. One thing I can say from personal experience is when you have a medical question that you are concerned about – stay off the Internet! Not only did I recently have to go to the ER because the Internet said my blots were reforming, but one time I would have put money on the fact that I was having heart failure because I had tingling in my fingers and numbness in my left arm and shortness of breath. It turned out that when I fell snowboarding, I hit a nerve that cleared up in a few days and the shortness of breath was me panicking.

Do you remember that guy Jake that was over on Easter (I think it was Easter)? Anyway, he was good-looking, I think the one there without a sig other? Anyway, last year he had to have an emergency cornea transplant and there were freaking stitches on his eyeball. Talk about freaky. Ok, I am not helping am I?

As far as Senior for drinks tonight – John and I were talking and we made a vow not to go out to eat or spend money until we go on vacation, because this trip is costing us quite a bit between flight, rental car for 9 days and the hotel room on the beach. So I was thinking instead of going out – if you want to instead we could BBQ some chicken tonight because I have all of that. I also have a fresh bag of salad and some veggies and potatoes and even chips and salsa. So you guys down for BBQ instead….??

OK stitch thing totally freaking me out but going to stick to your original advise and not think of internet search, the doctor seemed positive so I’ll be positive too!
But IF I do need the dead dudes cornea I’m going to request a blue one as I’ve always wanted to have 2 different eye colors….. Never mind, Hubby’s reading over my shoulder and telling me that the cornea is the clear part and not the actual eye color part. DUDE!!! He just said some other stuff too, but now he’s just being mean so I’m ignoring him. I mean seriously did you know the cornea was not the colored part? We’ll talk tonight. 
LOVE the BBQ idea. Hubby and I had been talking about how we shouldn’t waste money on eating out so much but I wasn’t sure if that included Senior. You seem to have it all but I’ll bring over a couple bottles of wine.  See you then!!

    Old emails are hilarious…they’re like weird little journals entries. This made me laugh so much, even though I hope your eye ended up being ok. Great idea!
