Goop galore

You know how I said that I was sick?

Well, yesterday, things got even better. First, on the flight home, my nose started bleeding after I blew my nose. It’s not like I was blowing my nose really hard or anything, just lightly because I felt it dripping and bam! Blood. Then again, the flight attendants were really nice and gave me a whole empty row to myself to deal with the bleeding. It did stop eventually.

But the nosebleed was just a minor thing.

The thing that really gets me is this: I’ve got conjunctivitis in my left eye. It started with a pain & itchiness, then I noticed that there’s this white goop in my eye. This was around 3pm. And oh the swelling. Then by 10pm, it was less painful for me to just keep my eye shut. And around midnight, O looked at me and said that my other eye seemed to be swelling too. Argh.

So this morning, I went to the doctor’s (went over at 8:30 to see if they had available appointments and got one for 9am) and he just asked me a few questions about my eye (nothing about the coughing or drippy nose), then told me how to use the prescription he gave me.

Came back, climbed back into bed for a few hours, then sent O to the pharmacy while I cleaned the kitchen and tidied up the dining room. We still need to tidy up the living room and vacuum everywhere, but other than that, we seem to be set for the party.

I just hope I’m not contagious. *crosses fingers*
