NaBloPoMo Round 2, Day 30: Medical Day

I hit two medical offices today, one of them twice:

Ophthalmologist:

I finally got in to an opthamologist to examine my eyes, instead of an optometrist. She confirmed my suspicion that this is allergy-related and said I need to blink more (maybe cutting back on recreational computer use would help), use a different allergy eye drop, and do twice-daily eyelid scrubs. I have a follow-up in a month to see how it's going.

Nuclear scan:

I had to get an injection of radioactive dye and return a few hours later to get scanned. It took about an hour total. I should have results early next week.

I'm trying to think of a big, exciting topic for my last 2011 post. Come back tomorrow to see if I succeeded!

  1. I'm glad you're seeing an ophthalmologist for the eye problem. I've forgotten: you wear contacts, right? I had a big mess with allergy eye and contacts years ago, and bumpy unhappy eyelids, so I can relate. Hope you get this resolved quickly.
