See Him Run!

I cook all that good food on his blog.... Because I love him ... and ... You should see him run.
That's him on the right. (Picture snipped out of a movie.) Maybe you saw "Grey's Anatomy" last Thursday. The partner said.. "Because I love him" and "You should hear him sing!" If you didn't see it, that's OK too. The scene was a love story.


Inflammation of the iris:
Woke up with incredible eye pain.. like my eyeball might burst.
It was about a week and a half ago. With a hastily made appointment, the ophthalmologist, was looking into my eye before 10am. He administered the first drop of prednisone, and with 2 more doses at home, I could look out of the corner of my eye without undue pain by noon.

Left untreated, which is difficult to imagine considering the extreme pain, iritis could lead to blindness. It looked a lot like conjunctivitis, but it wasn't. For eye pain: definitely see a doctor.

Because there may have been immune system involvement, we also made a visit to our naturopathic doctor (ND) for supplement advice.

A week later the doctor reported no evidence of the inflammation in my iris.
Now down to one drop a day for the rest of this week, I feel very lucky and blessed.

I am glad things are better sound scary.

Look at Don go - he looks like he's flying!

And happy to hear your eye is better. I once had a scratched cornea from wearing my hard contact lenses too long. That was very painful and scary.

You and Don are amazing!

Sorry to hear about your eye. Watch that prednisone. My husband was on it last summer to treat a weird ailment. Admitedly, he was on very high doses, but it wrecked a lot of havoc on his system.

I do appreciate the warning. This is just one drop in the eye at a time.. for about 2 weeks. But still it does make me wary.
Iritis makes me pretty wary too. It's a tough choice.

I'm glad your eye is better. Nice to see a photo of Don running. May you both continue to do well!

He is really moving! I'm glad you took your eye pain seriously and that you are okay.

I'd never heard of irisitis. Thanks for the warning - yes, eyes are not something to leave untreated. Glad you're better.

Sunshine said...

I hadn't heard of it either.
Proves again that you can get something even if you haven't heard of it. Hmmmm.
