So yesterday was my drs appt. Things went well. My doctor (Dr. Rachelle Brilliant) was really nice. She’s young and a new doctor, but she was very thorough and had a great bedside manner. I was comfortable with her. She did the whole exam and asked the Resident to come in and look in my eyes too. They got this weird scope thing that gives them a better look in my eyes without dilating them. The Resident saw a dark partial ring around my retina in both eyes. The one in the left eye seemed broken up. Since he only does a couple eye exams a day he felt it would be best for me to see a specialist since he’d never seen that before, even with the funny scope he had. So, they are referring me to an ophthalmologist. Hopefully I’ll get some answers then…whenever that appt is. I’m waiting for that call.
Oh, so I finally know what my blood pressure is (112/72) and my resting pulse rate is 84. That’s good at least. I’ll go in again probably some time next week to have blood drawn to check my cholesterol. I’m a little scared about that as I am not the most health conscious person. I try to eat healthy, but I do eat my share of fatty and junky foods. Hopefully that will be ok.
Oh, and my new glasses came in. We picked them up after the drs appt. I’m still getting used to them, but really since I’ve gotten them, the spot has decreased in frequency. I’m starting to wonder if my eyes were just compensating to much for the fact that my prescription was too strong (since my eyes improved (no more astigmatism)) and it was causing weird things…Oh, and good old Aunty Flo paid her visit yesterday morning too…I wonder if it could also be a hormonal thing, too. I’ll keep you all posted on how things are going. Thanks for all the concern. Oh, and I’ll post a picture of me in my new glasses when I get the chance to take one.
