My eyes had been very irritated for the past couple of weeks so I went to see my optician when they had gotten quite swollen, light sensitive and were causing headaches. I was started on antibiotic eye drops and packed off to the eye casualty department at my local hospital.
I'm told it's some sort of adverse allergic reaction to something. I'm now on steroid eye drops for a week and desperately hoping I've not suddenly developed a severe allergy to cats! Having four of them, that would be quite a big problem but I think I'd look quite fetching in one of those head-to-toe anti-contamination suits!
My poor son, Tom, has always suffered with his ears. He had ear infections for years, two sets of grommets fitted and a burst eardrum all by the age of about eight. Now, after all that time, he has an awful ear infection right in the middle of his exams. These things come at the most inconvenient times!
Next my daughter, Chrissie, was at school performing a dance routine when she fell full force onto her elbow and ended up in hospital with a suspected fracture. Poor love still can't quite straighten her arm due to swelling and is due to perform her choreography in a school show tomorrow night! Wish her luck!
Ok, last but by no means least is our lovely Steve. Dental pain is one of the worst types of pain, isn't it? Well he's got it in abundance! He is on antibiotics to calm things down and now has root canal treatment to look forward to. You can imagine his excitement.
I can't wait to be back on QVC with you and was truly gutted to have to miss a craft show with lovely Leonie because of these silly eyes of mine.
Soooo, things surely can only get better! See you on Saturday.
Love Catherine x
ps: at least the cats are unphased by it all, look at Dinky and Baby snuggling (above left). Adorable!
