Would you like a root canal , or a poke in the eye with a sharp stick?? I know, yikes, neither !! I am showing some pretty pictures...well because I need them , after the day I had . My dentist has finally realized my sensitivity is actually the need of a root canal. I went in on Monday. He doesn't do those, he recommends another dentist....in another town.
So yesterday my appointment was for 2:45. I get the day going by watering flowers and deadheading. Rake some dry patches in the lawn to see what was up with that. Bring the trash can from the road, to the garage.
Sweep the porch. Come inside and sweep the kitchen. Do breakfast dishes. Then have lunch. After lunch, I get showered and ready for my appointment. I think my eye looks red ...now this is after I rubbed my eye . I look at it again later. Thinking, maybe it's pink eye . I look it up on line. LOL. Then I call the dr. They tell me to come in soon. So I call the dentist, tell them what is happening.....they tell me to stay away. (HA) You know, as if I were covered with cooties.
I go to the new young doctor . He has the nurse to get something to numb my eye for a dye check to see if I have scratched my cornea. They put drops in and the dye, check for scratches...say I have none and that they do not think it's pink eye...no matting, itching, or watering. Young doctor say you should go see your "eye" doctor.( DOH) So off I go to the eye doctor. He says no scratches and he didn't think it was pink eye either. Orders eye drops. By now my eye is beet red and irritated....plus dilated. I go to CVS for eye drops..
Come home, reschedule root canal. Use eye drops. Hours later my eye is still dilated. So I call eye dr. they say call young dr. I call they are done for the day. I call eye dr. again, just to get a general idea of how long my eye will be dilated. They say hours, maybe days. DAYS !!!
I get up in the middle of the night and check my eye...it's a bit swollen, red also. This morning. It's red and I use the drops and it feels better but red and still dilated.
At 8:30, young doctor calls me. (What ?) He asks how I am doing. I tell him everything the eye dr. did and said. I told him eye dr. was to send him a small report. So I ask the young dr. how long will my eye be dilated. He says... They put the wrong drops in my eye, I was never to be dilated , just numbed. Haussenpheffers.(Cuss words)
So now I am staying in, treating this as if it were pink eye to be safe. When I think of what all I went thru....I would have rather had the root canal. At least that would be over ...but no, now I get that done on Monday. Waaaa. Thanks to all my blog family and friends for letting me whine. LOL...I feel much better. :):)
It's a smidge cooler here. Hope you are having a great day. Sending prayers and good wishes for all in need . XO
