Should've just gone to work...

So today was essentially a huge waste :(

It was a repeat of yesterday's experience just with a different doctor.  He did, admittedly, do a slightly more intensive exam but the results were the same: detached retina.  Very serious.  Need surgery asap.  Great.  Thanks.  I thought that was why I was here.  But apparently there's no room in surgery for two weeks.  Awesome.  So he's put me on a waiting list and contacted another surgeon to see if he has space.  Otherwise, he'll do a checkup next Tues and if anything changes go to emergency.

Oh, and it's a complete fluke that I'm not blind in that eye.  Lovely.  Apparently the gel in the eye is holding the retina in place.  So I'm not allowed to do any exercise that might jostle it -- no riding, no running, no cardio.  Less than thrilled.

So went and taught Kennedy tonight and she had an amazing ride on Callie.  Then I played with Sasha for a bit and taught her on Lexi.  Was nice to watch my pony go, but I was so disappointed no to get to pilot -- esp as was perfect galloping weather.  Ah well.  Such is life.
