What "Cats and Carpet" disease looks like

Best part is... the wrinkles on one side of my face are gone but unfortunately I can't open my eye to enjoy it...

oh yeah. and don't need eye shadow but my daughter tells me I've gone extreme.

Yikes! I hope you get better soon even if it means a return to wrinkles.

Oh dear, that looks tender. I hope it all calms down quickly. Why did you want to give yourself a shiner?

Boredom, taxy, boredom.... nothing to do other than paint rocks, carve goose eggs, baking, trying recipes to use up goose eggs. Even Netflix is getting boring.

oh yeah, and listen to friends on the phone about the virus (ad nauseum)

STAY VIGILANT EVERYONE - PLEASE! (but now shut-up about it)

I thought I had forgotten to straighten a carpet the cat had pulled up while fooling about. I had done it but failed to notice she had pulled a strand loose from the edge. This strand caught my foot/ankle and sent me flying head first into a very solid wingback chair.

3 doctors have no idea and wouldn't you know, has not happened since. But, I am not going blind, which was my worse fear!

Just like a car, your problem solves itself once the "mechanic" looks at it. Glad you got good news. Maybe that pain was just something sharp that flew into your eye and then cleared out. If it were from a lumpy cornea, I'd have constant pain. My one eye is as smooth as the double black-diamond hill at a ski resort - nothing but moguls!
