I wasn't planning on spending my Saturday at a hospital emergency department, but after some ongoing complications with my eye (see this post), that's exactly what happened!
Last week, my eye continued to irritate, watering now and then and just feeling scratchy and not right. I thought it was just part of the natural healing process, but when it continued to get worse I decided to go to an optometrist again on Friday afternoon, just in case something else was going on. Sadly they couldn't figure out what the problem was, in fact I was told that I had a very "unhappy" cornea and I needed to get into a specialist ASAP! But being late Friday afternoon, well it made it virtually impossible! I was told to go to the hospital if it got worse over the weekend, and of course, with me being the worrier that I am, I freaked out - especially when my eyelids started to swell again.
So off I went to the emergency department on Saturday morning, where 2 doctors couldn't figure out what was causing my pain (although they did reassure me my cornea would be ok!) - so I was then referred to the PA hospital Eye Casualty Department, where it took another 2 ophthalmologists to finally discover a tiny little follicle on the inside of my top eyelid, causing all the irritation, swelling and redness!
Its finally feeling pretty much back to normal now, phew what a relief! We are so lucky to have these amazingly caring doctors and nurses available at our local hospitals, aren't we?
Part two of my mini shoot sessions held at Tamborine recently (on quite a chilly morning!) and some more lovely families to share!
These gorgeous sisters brought along their sweet dog Ellie to share their shoot with, as they have such a wonderful bond with her. I love including the family pets in shoots and Ellie is such a beautiful, sweet-natured and patient dog!
Baby Finley was a little bit upset on the day of his shoot - poor little man! We had to make sure we kept him moving and kept him distracted, but we still managed to capture some lovely images with his beautiful mum and family!
