*Zap*

The Doctors here have imposed a ban or more like a restriction of the amount of time I am allowed to spend in front of the computer until the treatment of my recurrent corneal erosion is complete so I won't have time to put in all the pictures I took in between my entries like I normally do for the next few days ok guys?

Now this morning at 8am I was at the hospital here in Singapore. I went through a slightly disturbing experience.

The doctor was doing a follow up and checking up on my eye to see if it's getting better when she noticed that some 'skin' from my cornea was coming off.

As in there was a flap of skin coming down because my cornea didn't heal too well from my previous erosion
. Guess what she did... she said it's totally fine and it'll just come off by itself and problem solved.

WRONG!!!!

SHE GOT A NURSE TO HOLD MY EYE OPEN, TOOK A PAIR OF SHARP METAL TWEEZERS AND REACHED INTO MY EYE TO PULL OUT THAT PIECE OF CORNEA THAT WAS FLAPPING.

AND THE WHOLE TIME I HAD TO LOOK THAT METAL TWEEZER IN THE EYE!


I shrieked in pain and said
"OWW DOCC!!! DID YOU PUT ANESTHETIC ?!?!"

And the Doc said
"Yes I did... ok put some more."

In the end, and after 3 days of seeing 3 different doctors here in Singapore, the final Doc gave me two choices of treatment:

1) One a contact lens bandage that might work or
2) Go for the laser surgery that will significantly hurt a lot more but have a higher probability of curing it.

I decided to go for the laser so tomorrow morning I'm going to the hospital for surgery. As a result of that I may not be in the best position to update my blog again tomorrow right after surgery but I'll do it asap anyway.

*Sigh*

The one thing I have to say is... Thank God that we have such a capable team at Nuffnang that can run the show for a week without me being around... otherwise we're so screwed!!!

Looks like I'm gonna be in Singapore for another week.

My dear readers, I will miss you all.. will be back soon.

I miss my lump too.
