Subject: RE: MOAB's Daughter (of all BS) part 3
If you don't know, I fell outside my room in a hotel in Oslo, Norway. I have a REAL shiner of a black eye and my glasses frame cut a slit just below my right eyebrow. It's quite a mess and yes, there was a decent amount of blood shed (some of it got on the cover the book I had just purchased). When I finally got up I located the things I'd been carrying and got into the room, from which I called my wife. I went to the front desk and reported the incident. I chose not to go to the doctor/hospital/ambulance/etc.

When I got back home I made an appointment with my ophthalmologist and primary care medico. The latter I saw yesterday (also about a cold I have contracted) and the former today.

Apart from being achy and have an "eye area bruise" that's a real beauty, I'm just a bit vertiginous now and then. Yesterday the PCP told me to take the cough medicine and be VERY careful for a while when walking, etc. The eye doctor told me that I was "damend lucky" because apart from "giving your eye a shaking up there isn't anything I can see that's wrong." Of course, both said the come quickly or even go to the ER/AE if problems develop, stuff like flashes of light, which can indicate a detached retina. Stuff I don't want to have.

Anyway, that's the run down on my injury. The fall occurred last Sunday, five days ago.
