Here's Looking At You, Kid

No, this post does not include photos of me in the eye patch. Those are on Jeremy's phone and he's at work. I may post them later for your entertainment and my humiliation. (I decided that the hospital-issue eye patch would be Hannibal Lecter's jock strap.)


The good news is that I saw the eye doctor and she said no more eye patch, everything seems to be healing fine. No vision loss. Yay!

BUT...


This is a perfect opportunity to gross you out and show you what it looks like, so I just took a couple of close-ups for you. This will make you think twice before cuddling with Felix or Fluffy next time.



*** WARNING! Before you scroll down, please know that this is a close-up of my eye: gross veins, red spot and yellow antibiotic residue and all. Don't say I didn't warn you!
Ready?
Are you sure?
Okay then...

SCREAAAAAMMMM NOW! This was taken just now, three days after the bite. It has healed up insanely fast. The entire white in my left eye was red just a day and a half ago.

Talk about bloodshot! Oops, this pic has shadow from the camera lens. Hey, the red spot sort of looks like Pac-Man here.
In other news, the weather is delicious today! Hope you are enjoying it, wherever you may be. (Well, you probably were until you saw this post and my atrocious bitten eye. Sorry about that.)

Wow - that is really amazing. It doesn't look as bad as I had imagined. I'm glad it's healing quick!

Gnarly!!!!! But I'm glad you're okay.

I'd save the eyepatch for days when you only have time to put mascara on one eye.
