The Diseased Rodent

Hi friends!  I just wanted to check in really quick.  I had a few blog posts planned for yesterday and today, but I got a bit sidetracked.  Yesterday, I woke up with a lot of pressure in my right eye.  As the day progressed, it grew itchy and started to burn- along with my left eye.  I knew when I left work that the prognosis wasn't good.

When Eliot got home from work, we headed over to the local walk in clinic, and sure enough, I have conjunctivitis in both of my eyes.  I'm not sure how I got it, but after all the places we went over New Years, I could have picked it up anywhere.

Thankfully, I caught it early and I don't really have the awful gunk that comes along with it.  When I had pink eye as a kid it was awful.  Yesterday, you wouldn't have even known anything was wrong with me by looking at me.  Today, my eyes are a little pink, but not bad. However, they're a little sticky and they do itch occasionally.  Luckily, my eye drops seem to help as soon as I put them in!  Plus, the awful pressure is gone!

Eliot has dubbed me "the diseased rodent".  I reminded him that our beloved Mickey Mouse is also technically a rodent, but Eliot told me he's the cute kind.  I agreed, and stated that the only "disease" Mickey has is the "here take all my money" disease.

So, I've spent today home on the couch.  I'm super contagious for the first 24 hours, so we decided it was best that I stay home and not contaminate our patients and the office.  I had high hopes of being super productive, but in the end, a day on the couch was definitely what the doctor ordered.  I even took a two hour nap!

Hopefully, I'll be back in business soon!  After getting my New Years goals in order, I'm really motivated and the last thing I want is to sit around and do nothing.  I really just want to dive in.  I also need to recap our Christmas and New Year's adventures!  And I still have a few other posts I need to catch up on!  But, I also know my limitations.  For now, I rest.  I'll leave conquering the world for another day.  °o°
