Two friends of mine have their birthdays today... Jess and Kati... So, before I say anything else I want to say, "Happy Birthday," to the two of them! Hope you're both having fantastic birthdays! :)
I had the appointment today for my artificial eye. We had to be there for 9:30 am and it's a 45 minute drive from my place. Good thing I've been getting up really early, because it meant a very early start to the day.
Anyway, today I had an eye given to me to get the socket used to having something in it. Apparently - despite all the hastle we had with it - it looks fantastic and has healed really well.
She also polished my existing artificial eye. That's meant to be done from time to time and it's long over due, really. I hadn't gone since before I got married because I wasn't sure how to get in touch with them and was having problems getting to see an eye specialist. But that's not important now...
I've got to go back in March some time (I'm not sure of the date until I get an appointment through). And when I go back in March they'll make moulds of my eye sockets so as to make me a pair of new eyes.
It feels weird having an eye in that socket. And the eye's been a bit gunky this afternoon because of it. It's my body trying to get rid of the "foreign body" that's in my eye socket. It'll settle down after a bit. The other one was like this too, if I remember rightly.
I've gotten so used to having an eye in the left one though that it felt weird having it out while it was polished and used to help find a matching colour. We agreed it was easier to take the eye out and take it over to the eye box than keep bringing eyes over to compare them... Especially since it had to come out for a clean and polish anyway.
I could have picked my eye colour if I wanted, but when I had my first one done my Mam asked for it to be matched to my real eye colour, and everyone seems to think it's a lovely colour, so I asked them to give me one that matches that colour.
For anyone who cares - and is still reading this, lol - my eyes are a dark-ish grey. I know, because after my first artificial eye was made and I was told it matched my real eye colour, I examined the colour closely to see what colour it was. My Dad's eye colour is the same as mine, though his is a shade or so lighter.
Anyway, that's enough of that...
According to the quiz Styxie and Chicago have done on their blogs, I'm 74% addicted to blogging. I'd have thought it would be more than that, but there you go! LOL!
Also, according to a quiz I did from a link on the page below my results for the quiz I just mentioned, I've apparently got a 53%chance of surviving a zombie attack. So, that's good to know, I think! ;)
OK... Going to leave it at this today, because "Oath Breaker" arrived today and I want to get things done and curl up with Kero on the bed to listen to it. I'm dying to know what happens to Torak, Wolf and Renn next!
Enjoy whatever's left of your day! :)
