I'd Rather Be Running





My running pals had to meet without me as I made a semi-urgent visit to the eye surgeons. Holy crap. Surgeons?



Yep, it's a corneal ulcer. Something I should have never googled. Glasses and looking like a dork
until Friday is nothing if this thing will heal. I don't like some of the alternatives.



I will definitely keep you all posted.
That eye doctor took forever to see me.








By the way, totally off the subject but.....
Is anyone using iGoogle yet? OMG. I.LOVE.IT.ALMOST.AS.MUCH.AS.TIVO.

Hope your eyes are okay! Yes, I love iGoogle as well. I use a gadget for my daily to do lists as well keeping up to date with my favorite newspapers and favorite blogs. I hope more people start using it!

Oh no! I had a corneal ulcer back in college. I had to be hospitalized overnight so that nurses could put eye drops in my eye literally every 15 minutes. Even if I was asleep... not that I slept much during that time.

Good luck with it!

BTW - yes, I love iGoogle. I might love Google reader even more... It's made blog stalking so simple!

I like the glasses. I hope your eyes heal quickly though.

And yes, I've been an iGoogler for quite some time. I love it.

Thanks for the tip: I will keep the words "corneal ulcer" out of my life.

Man, good luck with that.

iGoogle and the Google reader both rock. I don't know what I'd do without them.

Hope you heal quickly.

Of course, I have a blurry left eye, so now I think I have a corneal ulcer.

DawnB said...

Karen said...

Hope you heal quickly :) I HEART igoogle!

Bob A said...

I hate that you have the corneal ulcer -- doesn't sound pleasant. But, you don't look dorky in the glasses.

I've used iGoogle for a number of months. I like it, especially the fact that I can set up 'internal' tabs.

I also use Google Sheets to track my running and then post a portion of it, usually the current month, to my blog where it's updated every time I update the sheet. Now, that's cool.

P.O.M. said...

I googled it and that was not good.
I hope you heal quickly my dearest.

Sarah Kathryn said...

Ugh - I just am finishing up with eye hell. :( I hope yours heals quickly. I'm off to the eye doctor for a follow-up tomorrow - I'm at 7 weeks post onset for iritis and still not healed. MAKE SURE IT'S NOT THAT. Just sayin'.

akshaye said...

Take care and I hope it gets better.

igoogle - been using it since the day it released! Welcome to the club.

Viv said...

Hi Nancy

I can pretty much guarantee you that I know more about these than just about anybody you blog with. Unfortunately, I probably see about 10 or 12 of these on any given week. I actually specialize in cornea and these sometimes don't turn out all that well. The pain... it is really hard to describe how bad it can get. It certainly doesn't help that the cornea has more nerves per area than any other tissue in the body. I would also tell you that probably 19 out of every 20 scripts I write for vicodin are for corneal ulcers. That being said, How are you doing?? If you need anything don't hesitate to ask and I hope you are doing better.
