I don’t suppose I can blame the cats for pinkeye.
Day 2 of interesting week. Woke up with crusty eye. Made the incredibly smart decision to not put contacts in. My eye didn’t ITCH, though. I vaguely remember having pinkeye when I was younger but I thought I remembered it being horribly itchy. Anyway. My boss requested that I not wait to go to the eye doc in case it was pinkeye, which I honestly did not consider as a more than 30% chance until my eye doc declared that I did, in fact, have pinkeye. I don’t have kids! I’m not around kids! There are no grubby little fingers around me to spread schoolchild germs. But alas, I have contracted it.
I thought I had a scratch, and THAT I could blame on the cats, since Moosh sometimes sleeps on my head and I’m constantly pulling pieces of fur out of my eyes.
But I can’t. So now I’m banished home, where I can’t infect my co-workers. I had to disinfect everything for the boyfriend, but he washes his hands every 5 minutes and never touches his eyes anyway. And I’m stuck with whiny Taco, who I think ate the frog (or at least something he wasn’t supposed to) because he had green poop. Green poop that he tracked into the kitchen. Bad enough that I have to disinfect my own filthy germs, I have to take care of Taco’s ill-fated meal.
Hopefully the antibiotics start working super fast and I’ll be symptom-free enough to go to work tomorrow. It’s not that I don’t like a day off, but I like it on my terms. Sitting home with the kitties and my new toys is ok, but not as enjoyable with a burning eyeball. Eh.
I’m kind of looking forward to see what new, interesting thing happens tomorrow! I hope it’s good.
If your pillow looks like my pillow, it’s no wonder. I wake up every morning with Blossum sitting on my pillow looking down at me. I almost think she’d lift my eyelid if she had thumbs. Needless to say, I change my pillowcase a couple of times a week. She probably goes to do her morning litterbox visit just before coming to sit on my pillow, yahhhh! What can you do?
Oh, mine always wait to do it the second before I feed them, so I can enjoy the stench while preparing their food and then mine for the day! Maybe I CAN blame this on them after all!
ps…feel better soon.
Thanks…I do for the most part, I am more upset about having to wear glasses for 10 days. It totally throws me off.
Hope you feel better!
