Yes, my eyes are a little bit worse. I was right with my earlier instincts.
Saw the eye doctor, he did another steroid injection directly into my left eye. This one was different ..he put it in a different location than the two injections prior.
This one required him to use that dreaded clamp to keep my eye open, wipe down the surface of my eye with betadine, and inject twice as much steroid as he did last time.
My right eye, which was previously clear of inflammation in January, is now inflamed. It may need an injection to that eye in two weeks.
No matter how much numbing drops he put in, it HURT. I mean, took my breath away hurt. And since he put it in another location, not the back of my eye, I was looking directly at the needle as it was coming toward my eye.
To add to the fun, I did my weekly methotrexate dose on Friday. I felt like hell all day Friday and Saturday.
My husband even took Sunshine with him to his boxing class this past weekend.
Yesterday I felt ok. I HAD to get up and help my husband with the laundry and the house. I made cookies, I made dinner.
And now, I am completely wiped out. I slept 16 hours so far. I woke up, got Sunshine on the bus, then back to bed.
I am up now because Sunshine is getting off the bus in 20 minutes. And my husband will be at work until 8:30 tonight.
I am incredibly thankful that it is beautiful outside today. Sunshine should be out with her friends most of the evening. And one of my friends is coming over for “Mommy-baby dinner” tonight.
She can help with dinner and keep an eye on Sunshine until my husband gets home.
I really can’t tolerate reading or typing too much. So I’m going to end this here. I’m just concerned. My bp is still going haywire, this eye is effed up, and I can barely move.
My goal this week is to get to yoga at least once.
