Eye’m back.

My eye is so much better today. Truly, our bodies are amazing creations capable of so much more than we think or give them credit for.

Even up to last night, I was in a huge amount of pain and could barely keep my eye open at all and light was extremely painful. Less than 24 hours later,  although my vision is blurred in that eye, the pain is so much less and the light is just annoying rather than painful. I am sincerely hoping by Monday to be completely as good as new. I am still babying it until the contact lens bandage comes off on Monday so I am trying to keep it dry, out of the wind/elements and as clean as possible to speed up healing.

I don’t actually know what the cause was, whether I tore it trying to take out a contact lens or whether the lens itself was the cause – either way, it is extremely painful and I truly hope none of you ever experience it.

Thanks so much for your well wishes and concern. It meant a lot to me.  I have to say I have amazing friends. My friend Shelley and her husband Kevin took awesome care of me for two days - letting me live in their home and driving me to medical appointments and making sure I was fed and comfortable. I am so blessed to know them.

I did get to WW today to weigh in and lost 3.5 lbs...which is a bit of miracle considering since Tuesday I have eaten out meals because of this injury and being away from home.  And I’ve been unable to exercise.  I am working diligently to make sure I don't have a regain next week. This is also a carryover from last week which was PMS week....but regardless...I'll take it!!! Onederland is in sight again!

I’m going to say this is my Week 5 weigh in for the challenge as I am so skewed in the timeline and just continue along with the weeks as set out by Stormy so I don’t get all mixed up and don’t have confusing posts! I’ll do a proper Week 5 recap on the weekend.


  1. That is such good news about your eye and so glad your friends were there to help.

    Take the loss! A loss is a loss is a loss xoxox

  2. Great loss! See you Sunday:)

  3. So glad your eye is better.... Eyeballs tend to heal up fast.
    And cool on the downward movement of the scale!

  4. Yay for your eye being better! It is so wonderful that your friends took so great care of you.

    Congratulations on the loss! I no longer have a 3 as my first digit, so I am pretty happy about that!

  5. I'm so glad to hear your eye is better! It is a curious thing, the body. If we treat it well, it'll do the same to us (or so I hope!)
