Wouldn't you know it.....I was to call the eye doctor this morning so that I could set up my appointment to see them today. I spoke with one of the doctors that was on call this past weekend, and she told me to be sure and call, first thing Monday morning in order for them to be able to work me in. My symptoms were similar to those of a torn retina.
My first call was made at 8:00 A.M. .......... a woman answered and said that I needed to call back at 8:00. What?? According to my cell phone, it was now......8:01 and my cell clock in never wrong.
I politely said that I would. Second call was made at 8:15 and again, the answering service picked up. I apologized and went on to inquire as to what time the eye clinic opened. The lady told me that it opened at 8:00 and, could I please call back at that time!!!!!
Listen y'all......at this point, I wasn't sure if it was my EYE or my MIND that was needing to be checked. I called again at 8:30, only to hear the same voice that I heard the first time I called.
This lady informed me that the clinic did not open until 8:00.........I looked at the clock in the kitchen, then I looked back down at the clock on my phone........YES INDEED.....it was 8:32. I ask the dear soul if she had looked at the clock lately, and if there was ever going to be someone from the office, answer the phone today.
Her reply: "The phones are not working at the eye clinic right now." And my brain was thinking..... Duh!!! I think I can tell that by now, but why don't you just say, the phones are not working, instead of saying the office opens at 8:00. I'm thinking to myself......PATIENCE, Nelly. I have to somehow maintain an order of patience here.
I went ahead and got dressed and decided to drive on over to the eye care office. I am so thankful that I did, because when I got there, the phones were still not working. I had stressed all weekend over the unusual lightning flashes that I was seeing in the corner of my eye, so it was on my (Determined) list to see a doctor today.
Seems,...... that my memory was playing tricks on me when the lady at the desk ask me how long it had been since I had had my eyes examined. I was thinking maybe 3 years .......But lets try 8 years or so. This meant that I had to fill out new paper work!!!! I just love writing my name a dozen times and marking on each piece of paper that I am married, I'm Caucasian, and that I do not smoke, drink, or chew tobacco!!
All griping aside........I am thankful that I did get to see a doctor and that my eye does not have a torn or detached retina. A portion of the gel has lifted and this is what is causing me to see the flashing lights. I have two floaters in the corner of my eye, and hopefully, in time......they too will go away.
I walked out of the place with my eyes dilated BIG TIME. Funny thing is.... the girls (Trista and Shan) and I saw a Halloween mask at Targets yesterday that was so creepy looking because the eyes looked just about the way mine felt. I was kinda scared to take a look in the mirror, so I didn't.
Whew......I'm glad to be back home, where I have TONS of laundry to get done....
Wherever you go......scatter seeds of Blessings...
