Yesterday was not the best. It started out with me spilling not one, but two cups of coffee. I was in a hurry to get to St. Louis to see a doctor who specializes in inflammation and infections of the eye so naturally things just kept going downhill. Driving to St. Louis is about an hour and a half and wouldn't you know I would get into pouring down rain and hail. Thank God it didn't last long. I finally made it to Barnes Hospital and the Center for Advanced Medicine with no problems so things were starting to look up. I was there for over 3 hours being shuffled from one room to another to another and seeing doctor after doctor. I finally headed home after they x-rayed me and took about a pint of blood to test for every disease they can test. I really don't know much more than when I went. I just know I go back in two weeks. The main doctor. intimated I may have some kind of auto-immune disease which keeps feeding this inflammation in my eye. I hope they can find the answer to give me my normal vision back in my right eye. I'm tired of looking through a white cloud/film/frost and having the pain and using all those drops. I'm thankful my left eye is great or I would really be in a fix.
I finally made it home and no electricity. First clue was when the garage door wouldn't go up. I came in and set up my battery powered magnifier light, turned on the big camping lantern and settled in to stitch. Ameren said it could be 5-6 hours. What???? No TV and no internet for that long? Yikes!!!! I survived and it finally came back on in a couple of hours. So that was my day. I hope Saturday will be more productive.
