Eye ball.

So I have to go back to the eye doc on Thursday, and he's going to partially sew my eye shut because I grew a huge ridge of vessels and I don't blink completely now. It's better than the $800 surgery though. The ulcer is about sixty percent healed, but now I have this blinking problem.
My mom is dying to put up a pic of her tattoo, but she has this Tegaderm bandage on it which she has to wear for a week, and it's totally cool because it's breathable but it keeps bacteria out and keeps it from getting rubbed from her clothes. So we don't get to see it until Monday!
I'm sorry we haven't had time to get to everyone's blogs lately because my mom is so super busy all the time!
My mom's friend Erin is coming to stay with me and the cats next week because my Uncle Ansel and Auntie Kat are finally getting married and my parents are leaving me behind and going to San Diego to the wedding! So not fair!
Here's me before my eye got all terrible.

I love the picture of you. I am sorry you have to get your eye fixed. I hope it goes fast and gets lots better now. Will you have to wear a patch like a pirate??

Oh, Ike, I'm sorry you are still dealing with that silly eye! Will they take the sutures out once it heals or will it have to be sewn furever? I am sending you as many doxie healing sun rays as I can! I sure hope they help.

Sorry to hear about the eye problem.. Do you get to wear an eye patch like a pirate? That'd be kinda cool...
