Oh no!

Some Mondays should just be sent back.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Shrek that those floaters are not serious. You are making him go to the doctor today aren't you?

Yes, after the podiatrist and the bank he is off to the optometrist. We already got a stop on the Debit card, so now it's just paperwork, but the eye thing is pressing. Hopefully I'll be able to walk...

FWIW PF, I've had floaters in the eye for years. According to my doc they usually aren't any problem. Either you just get used to them and don't notice anymore or they get dissolved. Hopefully this is Shrek's case, fingers crossed.

It's blood in his eye that is causing the floaters. We have to watch carefully and hope the floaters are the only problem and it doesn't turn into a retinal tear. Another appointment next week to see if it's gotten worse.

I wouldn't have worried but these came on suddenly, in a large amount and got much worse, doubling over two days.

Did they say they can do anything for it? When a patient has something wrong, doctors don't seem to realize that a week can be a long time to be worrying.

Since it is blood, it may settle by gravity and Shrek won't see it anymore. He is watching for flashes of light in his periphery or a dark "curtain" we are more worried about a detachment than anything else at this point. It's being watched and we were told that if anything happens to call ASAP, even at 3 in the morning and we will be met at the clinic for emergency care.

Hang in there PF. I'll say a prayer tonight for Shrek's eye and your nerves.

Thank you! It wears me out being a Hypochondriac for the both of us.

That's what you get for being in the medical field.

The Jeans and Butt issue: I lost 30+ pounds over the past 18 mos. I've always been thick-waisted, and it has gotten so much worse! I lost a cup size - (seriously, 42c to 38b)(unlike some people who claim to be large-boned, my skeleton is big), I lost my thighs. I lost my butt. No hips to speak of. But the waist? Still there. I've always had the problem of fitting pants to my waist and having to wear pants that flapped around my bottom and thighs, but it's worse now. I've always been an apple anyway, and I'm more apple-ish now. It won't be an issue for awhile. But husband would like me to show off my slimmer profile and I told him wait for the fall (I mean, warmer weather is going to come soon, right?) and I'll make him my servant while I try on men's jeans for winter wear. Once it warms a bit, skirts and shorts will be fine (I'm still not happy with my thighs, but butt is regaining a curve. Lots of weight-lifting).
