good news / bad news

I just got back from another trip to the eye doctor. The good news is that my eye is getting better. The bad news is that it's not getting better quickly enough, so I have to go another week with my eye dilated. At least he gave me a scrip for different eye drops so I don't have to keep using the scopolamine which has been tripping me out.

The doc told me that scopolamine is related to atropine which comes from belladonna. He then told me a mnemonic to remember the symptoms of belladonna poisoning:
red as a beet,
dry as a bone,
mad as a hatter,
dead as a stone.

Great. I love modern medicine.

As for the root cause of the iritis, who knows? I have this funky antigen marker that shows I have some kind of inflammatory condition that is making my eye freak out. Joy.

Oh well, another weekend hiding from the sun. Pray for rain!
