Update on my eye

Monday, April 09, 2012

i Know some of you knwo what is going on because we alk or i post in the teamd but thought this time i would blog it.....

Lets start at the beginning.... March 16th was admitted to the hospital for orbital cellulitis... where my my eye was almost swollen shut..... was put on IV antibiotics and was in 4 days...

The headaches wre excruciating. ( would gladly trade 10 migraines for the headache I had)

Came home and was put on tons more antbiotics,,, infection around eye went away but the headaches would not stop... They had done a CT scan of my eye while inhospital and it showed the lacrimal gladn behind eye was swollen so we thought it was infection...

Had another done right after getting out still showed swollen with an increase i size.. still thought it was the infection being persistant in that gland.

2 weeks later had another CT scan and it showed another increase in size but cnt determine what is causing the increase.... went to eye surgeon specialists and he wanted an MRI done ut not till I ws done with all medication... more waiting....

Finally had MRI done this last Thursday.... totally didnt expect to hear anything because of Friday being a holiday.... late Friday ( just before closing) family dr called.... another increase in size..... she says it has to be biopsied.... and that there is a strong indication that becasue it keeps increasing it is a tumor....

so now I am waiting to hear back when the biopsy will be......

While all this was happening my fiance was taking time off work for me and he was getting close to the danger zone on abscences... so we decided to have a quick marriage ceremony so hcould apply for fmla and not jeopardize his job..... so we got married.... this is our first kiss as a married couple

We still plan to have our big wedding in spetember with reception'

A week later they fired him. He has enough in his 401k to pay all bills for 6-8 months so I asked him not to look for another job till after we find out what is going on with me as there is no sense starting a newjob and having to take a bunch of time off for me...

So I have been off work since March 16th and scheduled off till Paril 23rd but that date may change depending on biopsy
