Reduced service in the Playground


Hi folks

Just to let you know things here ain't too grand on the vision front so commenting and crafting has had to take a back seat.

An old eye problem has flared up, which means blurred vision and pain in the affected eye, constant tears running down my cheek and basically I look like Len punched me in my left eye. Hey, what? Maybe he did?

In truth it's a virus from the same herpes simplex family which gives folk those cold sores - only sometimes it diverts down the nerve into the eye and causes ulcers on the cornea - and yes, it's very painful and just rotten luck. 

Been to hospital, got medication which usually works and  will be blogging ASAP. But am planning to take it easy for a few days if needs be. Be good and play nicely!

  3. You take care of that eye...Vision is everything. Blogging is a hobby, and so is the Playground. Let Parsnip do full duty. LOve your cute little graphic. Yes, no ironing comes in the category of resting your eye. Listen to nice music & relax. Big hugs coming your way too. Hope you feel better REAL soon.

  29. You take care of those eyes. They are more important than our blogs! I hope it clears up soon. I know how painful the cold sores are on lips as I was very prone to them and accompanying ulcers as a child, but I am sure one on your eye is a lot more painful. Lets hope it is all better for Christmas. Hugs. Kate x

  36. Not at all fun! Cats get that too. It usually reduces their life expectancy so be glad you're not a cat! I mean after all, who wants to eat uncooked mouse guts?!

    Hope your eye gets better real soon!

Oh well, tis the season. lol Feel better soon Di! Hugs, Brenda
