So...I've been yanked off the river for pretty much the rest of the year. Meanwhile I'm being thrown from one ER to another, to the cornea specialists and back to the ER again. (It's ok. I don't want to have any fun on my birthday anyway.)
The good thing about this is a whole slew of really talented (not to mention cute) docs from Wills Eye Hospital are taking really good care of me and making sure I don't you know, stay blind in one eye (I can see colored blobs now instead of just light or dark. this convinces me they're doing the right thing)
From the way they're talking about "trying to avoid too much permanent scarring" and "it should heal in about 4-6 weeks. then we can work on improving her vision" gives me the impression there's plenty of bad news. Basically it's a corneal ulcer gone crazy...and all those cute lil bacteria that I picked up in the river were doing their damnedest to poke a whole through my cornea or something like that.
Yeh. I took music theory and rocks for jocks instead of real science classes, folks.
