Conjunctivitis = Pinkeye
As a child it’s an easy day off school. As an adult it’s a horrible day off work and having to listen to another adult (the doctor).
I had the pleasure of having Pinkeye last Thursday. In the end they think it happened when I was trying to get an eyelash out of my eye and I scratched my eye. I went to the hospital with my eye so swelled I could hardly open it, but after sitting the ER room waiting for the doctor to look at my eye the swelling did go down. In the end I had to take last Thursday off and a week of eye drops.
It’s always a sad time when a family member passes. It’s also a time for reflection on memories and realizations. You realize life isn’t forever and you need to make something out of yours.
