When I left the ER on Monday, I had a hard time believing that all that eye craziness was from a strand of fiber but I wanted to believe it because it was an easy fix. While the fiber was causing some irritation and needed to be addressed, I knew there was going to be more to this story when I woke up seeing even worse than I did the night before. I had The Mister drive me over to Daddio's fabulous eye doctor and after an exam, I was sent to the hospital to have emergency surgery (!) for a detached retina. The lovely lady surgeon wanted to do some testing on her own first and discovered-bless her heart-that the retina was not actually detaching but had a crater that only appeared to be a detachment. She decided to try a laser intervention first to see if her theory was correct and to my immense relief, it worked. I not only had a crater but a blister of some sort that was causing all those floating octopus and lighting flashes. I can't see worth beans at the moment from the procedure but they assure me it will all clear up within a few days. Sadly my hallucinogenic visions are probably something I will have to learn to live with and monitor closely in case a detachment actually occurs-which unfortunately is now more likely. The actual medical definition of all this fun is bullous retinoschisis.

Oh yeah, the young (and good looking) PA confessed to being a crocheter. He has been working on a blanket for his daughter since she was born-three years ago. I was in no position to be doing any talking while he had his fingers in my eye but I would have gladly offered up the information that I am working on a sweater that I started-four years ago.
Needless to say, The Mister is going to be laughing about this for a long while. Don't anyone dare ask him how he spent his Memorial Day.

Zenitude posted her amazing creations last week so I just had to give it a tentative go.

Owlie Mitts in Wandering Cat Yarns Swamp Thing colorway. Aren't they cute? Very Duck Dynasty. I confess I have not seen the show but you can't help but get caught up in all the hype. Those dudes are everywhere.
Nice Ribbed Socks by Glenna C. The yarn is by Abstract Fiber.
You'll notice that Shaelyn is not in this pile. She is having yet another crisis that I will tell you all about later. Jeesh.
