Not Again

Last night my right eye started to bother me. As I was preparing to go to bed I noticed that my eye had started to swell, just like it inexplicably did about this time last year. Last year’s swelling was also the cause of the chalazion that I had removed, and caused me over a day in pain while recovering, in January of this year. I am sincerely hoping that another chalazion doesn’t occur due of this year’s swelling because I really don’t want to experience the pain of recovering from another chalazion removal. I have been attempting to limit the swelling by taking allergy medication and applying an ice pack, so far I’ve not had a lot of success. 🙁

This was certainly not the experience I was hoping to have during my last week of freedom.

I hope for a better Wednesday for you.

    Paulie, the eye deal doesn’t sound good. Launch a preemptive strike. Maybe a trip to the eye doc can nip it in the bud (figuratively, of course).

    “The new guy? Oh, Paulie. Yeah, the iOS programming guy with the eye patch….”

    Lightning and thunder, City of Decatur (8:00am). We skipped the “Y”. Chester (P. Kitty Catnip) has a morning vet visit planned. I hope Chester can swim.

    Chester and “friend:”

    Sounds like it could get messy later.
    Milk, bread, batteries charged, Ham radio at the ready (KE4ENI, EM73us).
    Bring it.

    BTW: Made a run, yesterday mid-afternoon, Paces Ferry, I-75S all the way through the Downtown Connector, exiting Carter Parkway to Ponce enroute to Decatur. Smooth sailing, speed limit plus, except for one little temporary bottleneck at The Majestic.

    Looking forward to Thursday es 73 de JG/HamWithCam

    • If the swelling doesn’t subside I might drive up to the ophthalmologist’s office to have them check it out.

      Just think, you may get to lunch with a freak of nature tomorrow!

        Do it, without delay.

        This too shall pass.
        (Wave off Thursday, if you must.)

    It’s amazing to me that last night as we went to bed, there was nothing on the radar- the closest storms were in Arkansas. We considered bringing the horses in for the night, but decided we could wait until morning. The horses were quite surprised to be called in at 04:40! I brought Phinney and Gus in on leads and let Mac follow, or at least I thought he was following. Mac came from behind at a fast clip and made it to the barn way ahead of us! All were tucked in before I left and Debbie only has to feed them breakfast.

    I believe madam was able to adjust her appointment tomorrow so we should be able to make it to lunch!

    And I’m with HwC, get ahead of the eye issues.


  3. The ice packs seem to be retarding the swelling. Regardless i will head to the ophthalmologist once the severe storms subside.

    • HamWithCam says:

      Good on ‘ya…
      “Supah” hard rain, City of Decatur. A total of 1.64″ (so far) since midnight.
      The streets are awash. Awash, I tell ‘ya.

  4. Wow, you know things are bad when the FAA issues a ground stop for planes at Hartsfield.

  5. Steve says:

    The one cell was on a direct course for ATL.

    Went to the doc for my physical this morning, a little while before I left the house, the Tornado sirens were going off, and for the 1st time ever, I heard a voice talking. Really feels like Big Brother is happening. As far as I can tell, I’m healthy, but of course, could stand to lose a few pounds. Doctor says a Mediterranean Diet will help to do that, and has also been proven to help with memory.

    We went to spin class last night- when I actually try to do what the teacher says, damn its a tough class. But – since I can’t get around to riding outside (Note to self, get on the damn road bike) this is better than nothing.

    And- in case you all didn’t know, it is our 15th anniversary tomorrow, and Steve & Debbie’s is Friday – not sure the #.

  7. Fifteen? Wow, we’re old.

    I am back from ophthalmologist with a prescription. Doc says nothing serious, now I am waiting for the rain to ease up, which may be awhile, before getting it filled. The roads were flooding as I drove toward the ITP Estate else I would have gone straight to the pharmacy.

    On the positive side, I am eating lunch at home and saving some money.

    • Barb says:

      glad you went to the eye doc.
      I know – 15 years – Its hard to believe the wedding was in 2002.

  8. And the power has started to flicker at the ITP estate…

  9. Steve says:

    It will be 11 for us, so we’re a day and 4 years behind.

    Glad the doc thinks nothing serious.

  10. HamWithCam says:

    Storming off and on here. Much rain.
    A total of 3.86″ of rain, so far.
    Our pool is really filling up nicely.
    (We don’t have a pool.)

    Braved Chick-fil-A for a quick drive-through lunch.
    Perfect timing, right in the middle of the very worst of the rain.
    Swam home.

    Watching Joe McNally live on a Creative Live free deal. Woof.

    Glad you saw your eye dude.
    Hopefully, come Monday, it’ll be a fading memory.

    It’ll be 35 years for us in August.

  11. I also made it out and back again dry(ish). Eye drops procured, my bad aiming skills at putting drops in eyes reconfirmed, hopefully badness gone soon.

    Lunch is a go for tomorrow, doctor confirmed whatever I have is not contagious.

    Congrats to all of you lucky enough to have found a partner you can’t scare away the way I have. 🙂
