I'm here...briefly...

So, on Wednesday my eyes suddenly got all bloodshot. I went to the doctor straight from school and he thought I had pinkeye and gave me some eyedrops. To cut a very long story short, I had a severe allergic reaction to the drops and have seen 3 doctors in the past 2 days - ugh! They're also not even sure it was pinkeye; it might have been a viral infection left from when I had a sinus problem a week ago. My corneas were pretty badly damaged and it'll take 2-3 days for my vision to return. I'll be back early next week; just wanted to check in here and say hi!

for your head.

Oh noes! I do hope you are better soon. Never fool around with the eyes; take care of yourself Toners!!!

Oh, Toni! Hope this gets cleared up quickly. My DH is an eye doctor so he would take good care of you if you were here! He says that ppl are often mis-diagnosed with pinkeye; it's often an allergic reaction to something. Hope you'll soon be well!

Janet February 2, 2009 at 8:25 AM  

Toni, when you are well, I left a little something for you on my blog. Take care!

Linda February 2, 2009 at 11:54 AM  

Oh my goodness Toni! I hope you are doing better today. I'm sending out some healthy thoughts to you.

How scary! I hope your recovery is a quick one! Take care...

Oh - my goodness Toni - here's hoping your vision returns to normal soon. I suffer from visual migraines and no how disturbing it is to loose your vision! I'll be thinking of you!

On a different note and when you are feeling better, I've left you a little something over on my blog too!

Oh my goodness, Toni! I'm just now seeing this. Hope things are improving and you are seeing well again. Prayers for speedy healing. ((HUGS))

Oh No! I hope your vision is back to normal soon!

Heather February 4, 2009 at 5:45 AM  

Oh no! I hope you're all better now!

Oh my goodness! My three year old had an allergic reaction to eye drops and it was SO creepy. Make sure they check you for a sulfa drug allergy, turns out little guy is allergic to a whole series of drugs, not just those drops. Take care of yourself!
