LOL! Mom has offered to come over and plant the bulbs. I do need her to come and water the bulbs I've planted and the butterfly bush I put in the ground. I'm not allowed to lift anything, including the hose...

My eye is red. The doctor at the walk in clinic gave me a referral to the emergency room of the nearby hospital. She was worried that it might be a glaucoma event. The clinic doesn't have the equipment to measure inta-ocular pressure. They seem to be passing patients through fairly quickly here in the ER and there aren't a lot of people waiting.

Oh crud, Taxy. This is an issue. Hoping all goes well, and that it's nothing serious!

We had a lovely visit with DH's cousin. He's somewhat bat-crap crazy, but we love him dearly, and we did the manditory exchanging of gifts, and all laughed our heads off well past our bedtime. He enjoyed my over-the-top hot chili, and I let DH cook him eggs this morning.

Aw geez, taxy. Sure hope it isn't anything as serious as the clinic doctor thinks. Sending you a gentle hug. Keep us posted.

Thanks Dawg and CG. The doctor checked the inta-ocular pressure and it's fine. I seem to have an infected eyelid. I'm at the pharmacy now, waiting for them to fill the Rx for eye ointment. I have a referral to see an ophthalmologist tomorrow. Mine won't be back until Tuesday.

This is much better news than glaucoma, Taxy! Infections, we can deal with them.

Yes, it is. The first doctor was worried because I already have glaucoma. She just wanted to make sure. She said it was probably an infection, but she had no way to tell for sure and if she didn't send me to the ER, she wouldn't be able to sleep.
