So I try not to be a complainer, but OMG, I'm going insane. For two years my left eye had become an increasing problem. It was dry, would burn, well, it started affecting how much time I could spend on the computer. so you know then it's time to do something about it. When I'd look in the mirror, my eye would be very bloodshot in the corner, then there was this small "something" for lack of a better word. sort of looked like a small blister near my iris.

Went to the family doctor, he sent me to the specialist, and last Friday I had surgery to have it removed.

holy shit, they told me it would be painful. that isn't really the problem although it's no picnic. It's that I can't see, it itches or it hurts. I never should have googled then watched the procedure on You tube. lol but the good thing is, is that the pterygium has been removed and they grafted a good piece of eyeball to the area.

Probably more than you wanted to know. one thing I have discovered is that a lot of people have this problem. So far the surgery hasn't been fun, but TWO, yes TWO! months from now when my eyeball is healed I won't have the irritated left eye.

Now I've taken to saying Arrg a lot since one eye is always closed. My husband just calls me popeye.

now you all know why I've been inactive on my blog and loops.

Whoa--huge hugs to you, KyAnn! I'd never heard of this before, but I'm glad you're on the healing side now, and I'm so sorry you're having to go through it. Hope your eye will be fast healing and you'll be back to your writing and blogging and everything else soon!
