Eye Report

Okay so yesterday I tried everything.  I tried the tea bags, soaked in hot and cold water...

I tried honey.

I tried potato/

I tried doing nothing...for about 30 minutes LOL

And then I went to bed/

I woke up this morning and my eye was huge!!!!  Rick made me go to the eye doctor.  He looked at it with his special equiptment and told me that yes indeed it was a syte.

It is on the upper lid of my eye.  It is in the middle of a tear duct.

He told me to use a warm compress, but not to press in on my eye.

He said I had really bruised my eye trying to fix it myself and that he was only a phone call away......

He gave me a discount.  He gave me a note to work as it is contagious to other people.

I went to turn in the doctors notice and my boss..Mr.KB said that even though I had a doctors notice no absentences were excused from gettin a write up.  So I have one for yesterday and one for tomorrow.  After three they can fire you. 

I do not think this is fair especially since I went to the doctor and it is not  like I could work and expose people to an eye infection .,  I am a cashier in a grocery store.  I scan peoples food!  This would surely spread germs!!!!


Anyway Rick said if I got fired from this job because of this that it wouldn't matter.  I need a different job anyway if this is how they handle sickness.

Mind you I am never late to work and have never missed a day before yesterday....

Anyway...the doctor gave me a prescription for an antibotic to put on my eye lid in the morning and at night.  With instructions to put a warm compress on my eye for 10 to 15 minutes.

So here is how it all worked out

Doctors Appointment  $40.00

Money Lost Due To Missing Work $90.00

Anitbotic $57.40

Vison Priceless

So I will have to catch up on your journals as I can because I am only looking with one eye.

Thanks for all the advice.

If this happens......just go to the doctor!


    I guess I am just celebratin Halloween early as I look like Igor.....

mrsm711 said...

ROFLMAO.  I know this wasn't meant to be funny, but it was.  Not the eye being infected, but how you describe the events.  Makes me smile.  Get Well.

I am here to Trick or Treat.  Stop by and say Boo!

So sorry to hear about the write up and the expense of this, not to mention how it must be sore and uncomfortable!!  Just get better soon and keep trying those warm compresses.  We are down quite a few hundred dollars this month.  I have no idea how it happened.  I am so sad and distressed.  Sigh.

Glad you got it checked by a doctor.  Now you will only need to be Igor for a short time, then its back to normal.  Vision is not something to mess with, and that eye looks real bad.  I hope the meds clear it up quickly.

And if they fire you for've even got pictues...I'd see an attorney in a heartbeat.  That's just wrong.   Linda in WA      

tpiez4me said...

Just say "yesssa masssa" to the bosses and drag one foot behind ya!  Looks like crap, but you've got the right meds now!  Hurry up and get better my friend.  Love the plastic bags from before!

robinngabster said...

Yikes looks ouchy.  Do what the doctor says and hopefully it will clear right up.  Hang in there girl.

I hope you can change your job soon ~ and work for a decent company ~ how unfair of them to even consider firing you when you have been such a good employee ~ and it being contagious and you working in a food store ~ Morons just about describes them ~ Hope everything works out for you ~ as you say Vision in priceless ~ Ally

Better change that job, your employer abuses you. Good luck with the treatment, wash your hands each time you've applied the ointment.


redpoppy007 said...

make a copy of your dr excuse..if you get fired you can sign up..what a jerk..he should be reported to the labor board.  That is insane to think you could handle food with that infection.
He is very rude and uncaring, I would not want to work with someone like him.
He is the one who should be fired.

Vision, very priceless . . . hope the eye is doing well!

Take care,

Amanda :)

Okay Igor... Barbara you're so silly sometimes. Glad you went to the doctor and Rick is right if that's the way they handle someone being sick you don't need to be there.
Take care, Chrissie
