We await good tidings, MIH. If they try to put you off again, move up here for some of that good ol' pinko socialized medicine that Russ and Pengwino hate so much.

With much patience, I was able to get an appoinment at 3:00 today with a Dr. who can work with my insurance.
I'm scared!
3:00 was almost four hours ago. I wonder what happened.

ok, I'm back now. I have a boo-boo on my cornea. They had to paint my eyeball orange and look at it under a UV light to see where I tore it. I have some eyedrops for it, now, and a first class pass to visit a specialist if I want.

It's been one of those non-stop days. Left the doctor at 5:30 then popped back into work, then went to a study group, then dinner with a friend after that. whew! Thanks, everybody, for your concern. oh yeah - no eyepatch, so no arrghh mateys, at work tomorrow. Was almost looking forward to that!!

Are the eyedrops intended to get the paint out, or to treat the UV burns?

I'm glad that everything is okay. Eye injuries are always a concern.

Glad to here it's not more serious. Kind of disappointed there was no eye patch - it looked so stylish in dduardo's picture. Besides, I've always wanted to tell someone, "You have such .... uh ... a beautiful eye."

It's still not very comfortable, but I feel better now that I saw the doctor. It hurts more when you don't know what's wrong, I think.

You have the best pick up lines, BobG!

Wolram, that sounds like such a cool eye-patch. I'm almost willing to poke myself in the eye again to be able to wear it.

OK, y'all, just for fun I'll be Darryl Hannah from Kill Bill today.

MIH, maybe you should wear safety goggles around paper.

I am pleased to hear you got treatment. Tear in the cornea is serious, but treatable.

I hope it heals quickly.

Tell me about it. And Evo used to say she was the clumsy sister!
Thanks for your good wishes.

Thanks fi. I'm in the mood for a Quentin Tarantino film now. I'll just have to watch the movie like this so I don't stress my eyeball.

oh, and p.s. Evo, your story about the cornea-eating critters was very motivational in getting me to find a doctor ASAP. I just wish the nightmares would stop now.

That's what big sisters are for...telling stories that cause nightmares for life.

In the future, you need to be more careful while working out those math problems. Remember, complex variables are always fun until someone loses an i.

We'll have to call OSHA immediately about this serious workplace hazard!
