UGH!! Didn't Like That Eye Test

Woke up kinda groggy today; didn't have such a great night's sleep. How the heck do you get a headache in the middle of the night??? I've always wondered that, but it happens often to me. I'm thinking last night's was a leftover from the eye exam yesterday. I often get headaches after eye exams because of the bright lights. So, of course, I was SO looking forward to this eye test today.

Nevertheless, Randy & I got ourselves out the door and to York Hospital where the Eye Center is located. I was late getting in the clinic because we had never been to this hospital and, although I called to find out just where to go, the signage is not the greatest outside the hospital I was to go to Outpatient Registration to register for my appointment. Wouldn't you think there'd be some direction to where Outpatient Registration is
outside of the hospital? Well, there wasn't. We found it eventually and I was only a few minutes late. Enough whining about that.

I'll whine about the test instead! :) Actually, it wasn't a test, it was photography of my eyes. Of course, there were the requisite eye drops to dilate the eyes. It's interesting, dilation used to make my vision very, very blurry; but not anymore. Don't know if they're using different drops or what. Anyway, after my eyes fully dilated, I was taken back to have pictures taken of my eyes. Whoa!!! The technician told me it was going to be a series of bright flashes 'cause it was basically just a regular 35mm camera taking the pictures. BUT . . . I was totally unprepared for just how bright those flashes would be. UGH!!!!!!! I actually had a roaring going on in my head. I had to keep my eye wide open all the while the flashes were going off. Not an easy task, I'll tell you. I'm just glad it's over and I hope that I don't have to do that again for a very long time.

Once we got outside, I could tell my eyes had been dilated! No blurry vision, but the sunshine was penetrating all the way through my brain. Thank God for Randy. He was my seeing eye husband. :) Since I was such a good girl during my trauma, we went to Bob Evans for a late breakfast. And we were joined by Lindsay & Reagan! So, we got to hear a little about Reagan's second day of preschool. Apparently, she isn't having separation anxiety - she took off into her room, holler good-bye to her mommy and never looked back. What a kid!

This afternoon was filled with napping, that's it. As expected, I had a giant headache so I hit the recliner and never knew daylight until about 4:30 this afternoon. My head still hurts, but it's better. I'm sure by tomorrow morning, I'll be my cheery self again - I better be, I gotta get to Curves! :)

Last night of the GOP Convention. I sure did like Governor Palin's speech last night. I think she's going to be a tough cookie and a good running mate for McCain. This is going to be an interesting couple of months.

Here are a couple of pictures of Reagan from her first day of preschool.

Until the next time . . .
