When What To My Wondering Eyes Should Appear

Well, not much if you're Sugar Daddy.

He's having some trouble.

Not the whole unemployment, moving in 2 weeks, 4 days post-op, kind of trouble, either.

It's more serious than that. He's been having some trouble with his vision for the last few weeks. Okay, a few months, but he used to have a job that kept him busy 12 hours a day, thereby hindering the time he had to see a doctor about it.

Do I sound bitter? I'm not. I promise.

So he saw a doctor to get new glasses. He told her about his light sensitivity and his blurry spots. She didn't care enough to "see" anything, and sent him on his merry way. Three days later, he was still fed up, and got a referral to an ophthalmologist, one he had seen before for an eye infection. After seeing him yesterday, the new doc made him an immediate appointment to a cornea specialist in Chicago. I was worried. I still am.

Turns out, what that first doctor didn't "see" could have cost Sean his sight. He still needs to undergo a battery of tests to figure out just exactly what is going on, but for now it's some sort of Keratitis. He has blood vessels growing through his cornea, and that's not good, folks.

So amidst all of our upheaval and challenges, we have this to deal with, too. Because you know, we needed one more thing to worry about.

Merry Christmas.

Can the dark cloud just move on already? I'm sorry Kel - sorry to Sean too. Don't you hate doctors who don't care enough to make sure they've done their job. But hey, now you can make a small fortune on a malpractice case.

Love your creative style with that catchy title and opening line. Keep it up. Sorry about the basement too.
What a bummer. Maybe you are supposed to leave, but I don't want you to.
Happy New Year!!

My cousing has that. She actually has a great doc in Utah for it. I'll have to find out his name for ya. I hope that the trials stop now. I think you've had enough for a butt load of people.
