It only lasts a few hours but in the mean time,


Happily, the optometrist told me that the blood vessel that was bleeding, has stopped bleeding into my eye. And that it has torn free and is happily floating around in my eye. It's big enough that it's casting a shadow on the back of my eye that looks strangely like a little black octopus with a squishy halo around it.

The optomitrist said that the 'octypus' will get a little smaller (he suggested I name it. :o| And that apparently I'll get used to it floating in there). He said that there's nothing they can do that won't risk the retina collapsing in on itself. :o\
I'm going to see someone for a second opinion. We'll see. :o)no pun intended

Well, I'm glad it doesn't hurt, but... I hope they can do better about making it not be so distracting or whatever. Weird...

That is insanely fucking bizarre-looking. Good Lord!

happily floating around in my eye

That is a sentence I never thought I'd see. EVER.

Dude, it's like someone dropped a drop of food colouring in there and it's all swirling and undulating around every time I blink. It's SOOOOOOOO tiring!
I'm going to my old opthamologist (sp?) in Ottawa when I'm there.
it's been over 10 years but he still has my records on file

Hey sweetness! It doesn't hurt, just awkward. Half of everything is blurry and cloudy.
Thanks for the huggles! They were just what I needed! :o)

Hey sweetie, thanks.

Dude! it's been 5 hours and it's still dialated. I hope it's back to its normal size by morning.

ohh babe! *smooches you* you get well okay?

(no a completely unrelated note..I adore your freckles!)

Hey doll. :o) The dialated pupil will (hopefully) return to normal. Sadly the doctor just gave me a condesending shrug and told me I just had to live with the shadow floating around. *grrrr*


I adore your freckles!

LOL!! You're such a nut! :o) ::run:tackle:hug::

You're a mutant! A dirty dirty mutie! What's your code name...um...Retina Gal? Aahahahha.

No seriously, I hope it gets help. Poor you.

A mutant and proud of it.

It's still the size of a toonie!!! If you look closely you could probably see inside my head!!!

And that's Retina WOMAN thankyouverymuch. :o)
I have poisinous octopus tenticles that shoot out of my eye that thwart the bad doods.

Yikes, that sounds horrible.

*smites the octopus and snuggles you*

I hope it's better by now.

JC is telling the octopus to fuck off by the way, not you ;)

Thanks honey. You made me smile!
And could you thank JC for flipping off the octopus for me? :o)
