See...this is the difference between me and Rap. He "looks" like he was in a bar fight last night, but he wasn't. I WAS in a bar fight last night, and not a mark on me. Ook! Ook! :D

Do you jump out of a cake naked and playing the banjo? Do you jump out of a binjo wearing a cake?

No, it's from the surgery. The surgeon had to work at a couple of angles he hadn't expected and so I look like I was in a bar fight. The steroid is an ocular solution of prednisone. I'll be finishing the antibiotic in a week, tapering off the pred for two weeks, and finishing the other at the same time as the pred. Arnica for the black eye; I tried using a beefsteak but the grizzlies fought me for it and the steak got shredded in the fight, as did the grizzlies.

Colors are more vivid, things are more luminous, and I am brighter and better looking...er, looking better...seeing better.

20/30 is great! Steroids? Black eye? I guess you Westerners are pretty hearty too.

I have Acuvail and Prednisolone drops now. The Zymar is done (one week).

I assume the black eye is from wearing the patch too long, especially if it was taped down very tightly. You did sleep on your "opposite" side or back, eh? No rollover eye mash in the pillow?

Good luck!

That is kind of you, dear lady.

gnu, I'm on antibiotic, steroid, and NSAID eye drops. But at the clinic, without my glasses and with swelling and so forth, I tested 20/30 and that should get better as swelling goes down. I also have a heckuva black eye.

All day and overnight? I guess we here in the Merrytimes must be a hearty breed. Wait... you don't have to put in eye drops until the next day? Don't know about that part... seems odd. We get a "one-time" eye drop to be put in immediately after taking off the patch and a heavy dose of antibiotics to be taken after our next meal. Three different drops fours times a day for a week, then two of those for two weeks.

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck when you see the doc today.

Shocking how brutal the medical treatment is in the colonies! If only you had the benefit of our British National Health Plan. I have petitioned the local church congregations all around Twillingsgate to pray strenuously on your behalf.

All day and overnight. I see the doc again at 8 a.m.   Then I'm supposed to sleep with the thing on for a week.

Weren't they supposed to give me anesthesia or something? They strapped me to a bed and started in on my eye. And I thought the doctors wore masks and they didn't use pocketknives no matter how sharp, I recognized a couple of the nurses as bouncers at a local bar, too -- they'd been fired by the Legion for being too rough on lumberjacks and (real) cowboys.

When you are near sighted in your right eye and far sighted in your left and your right eye is closed up with tape and a metal eye guard, it's pretty hard to read and stuff even with your glasses on.

Trust me on this.

I dare not drink today, or at least this morning, as I have been NPO since midnight, except for a couple of pills and a teensy sip of water. And now I must go, following bravely and courageously in gnu's footsteps, following the road he has trodden smooth leading the way to ocular betterment.

At least I'll look better at the end.

Liquid valium, dear lady, intravenously.

Otherwise, a glass or two of an evening, with good conversation or reading. I prefer the small barrel, single malt Scotch or Irish, and the small barrel/small batch bourbons. A good cognac or port is also quite nice. 25 year old Talisker or 39 year old Glenfiddich, Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve, Remy Martin Louis XIII "Black Pearl" cognac, Dunville's VR Irish, perhaps some Taylor's Fladgate 1863 single harvest tawny port -- I'm certain you know.

I am sorry to hear of your ocular troubles, gentlemen, but relieved that things seem to be well on the mend.

So, Rapparee, Winston is idly inquiring: How much "happy juice" does it take to satisfy your needs? He says that in his case it only takes a bottle or two, but I fear he is underestimating his capacity if I can judge by his typical weekends at the Vicar's Inn of late...

It ALSO saddens me to think of how much brown beer I drank last night--so much, in fact, that I couldn't remember the lyrics to "Arthur McBride" in correct order. Now THAT is sad!

21C is close enough to 70F. And -11C tonight, why, that's 12F! We'd kill for a high of 12F! My office, banked into the side of a hill, is currently -6, and that's Kelvin! The electrons no longer flow though the semiconductors (nonconductors?) or the wiring in the house. The very air has frozen into chunks! My gracious, at 12F we'd find it too hot to do anything!

I came to around at 2:30. Pee (prostate eh?). It was cold but I went back to the bunk and tried to resleep in various positions... nope. BUT, I stayed in the bunk until 6:30. It was too bloody cold to get up! I just fired up the electric furnace and turned of the heat pump (wall mounted mini-split) on Wednesday during the snowstorm. I didn't get the setting right. So, it was TOO BLOODY COLD! 16C. Now, when I was 285#... no problem. Now... problem.

So, at 6:30, I fired up the furnace. It's now 17:30 and the furnace has been running all day. At 13:00, I turned on all the incandescent light bulbs in the house. At 14:00, I turned on the oven... 400F... in anticipation of cooking a pizza at 16:00 just to add to the heating.

It's now 21C, my bedroom door is shut, the bedroom plenum is blanked for sleeping temp and the oven is off. I have a hoodie on whilst I sit in my office and my fingers are not cold. I shall attempt to adjust the thermostat such that the house does not overheat with the coming warm-up for the impending snow from the south.

Wish me luck. I am sorry to have to report this dire news as I know all of you are concerned about my welfare. On another note, with any luck, Amos will survive as well, even though the smug fucker probably just had to put on a sweater and maybe even socks before he put on his sandshoes in the past while.

Lazy-Boy is the answer, Rap. Next best would be a horse collar (neck) pillow. Place a pillow under your back to take off the neck strain. It's a bit tricky to get the neck pillow just right between the pillows under one's back and head but I managed it. I tried it on night five, fell asleep on my back, came to several hours later on my side, got up, and sacked out in the Lazy-Boy. Luckily, the neck pillow acted to prevent "eye mash".

I get to sleep in my bed tonight! Been sleeping in the Lazy-Boy since January 4 to make sure I stayed on my back. Last night, I woke (awoke? awakened? wakened?... came to) in the wee hours on my left side so the Lazy-Boy is no longer the mid-night spin inhibitor it was when I absolutely could not allow my eyes to do the pillow mash. Of course, I shall endeavour to sleep on my back. On my back? Sleep on my back? How odd a thing to say. Rather, I shall attempt to sleep tits up. I expect that won't last long as it's not a natural thing for an animal to bed down with it's soft underbelly exposed to marauding carnivores. To sleep, perchance to dream and roll over — ay, there's the rub on yer eyes.

Only those people I tell him to bite.

Why do you keep peanut butter in the refrigerator? It makes it hard to spread and you don't have to, even the "natural" kind. It was probably a "best before" date, and if there's no mold and it doesn't crawl out of the jar and beat you up it's probably okay.

On a more pressing note.

Should you be concerned? A timely response would be appreciated but, perhaps, not necessary.

Even the skunk cabbage left, as did the corpse flower in the town's botanical garden. There is also no poison ivy around Blind River because Shame makes it itch.
