The wife had some of this tissue wrapped around her spinal fusion with hopes of adding support, cushioning and durability to the procedure.

This is in our own Beanie's bailiwick IIRC ...

My liver enzyme tests and latest ultrasound came back normal finally. So it took 9 months for my liver to recover from the damage done by me being allergic to Prilosec. What fun. So I am now having a glass of wine, the first alcohol since last Sept to celebrate. Even the fatty liver caused by the Prilosec is gone and fatty liver usually doesn't go away.

Good news!  I guess bats don't often fare well against felines - at least not when indoors.

My Jaw still hurts a bit. Its from the tannic acids in the red wine. I lost my resistance to it from not drinking it in over 7 months. This has happened before after a reprise from red wine.

For the first time since last Sept my Liver enzymes are finally all back in the normal range! The ALT isn't centered but it is at 9 points under high at least. The AST is centered. Damn Prilosec, it can fry your liver if you are in the 5% that are allergic to it like me...

 
Yay! I like Scott's suggestion - have a beer to celebrate.

That is great news Dave.  I have a concern maybe some medical person can help we with.  I have never had rubella, and with the news of the measles outbreak on both coasts, I wonder if I should get vaccinated?

The Eye place called and said they had an opening with a different Doc than I usually see so I went in. No scratch or damage to eye but the pressure was slightly high he said. I will be seeing my regular eye doc in March for a re-check. This Doc didn't think I needed antibiotics or drops. I can't have antibiotics until my liver problem is resolved anyways. Just said come back if it gets worse or doesn't clear up after 2 weeks.

Today was the first day the eye doc was open from the storm and they can't get me in until March 6. By then It will already be healed I hope. There is only an eye doc there once a week as he works out of Duke. They can get me in 2/20 if I want to drive to Duke but I don't want to. Its not hurting as much and now its just sometimes.

Yeah, the cornea takes a week or so.  Schedule a visit to an opthalmalogist for as soon as you can.  A medical visit is covered by Medicare.  Refuse the cursory refraction, that costs.  But in the meantime, get some Thera Tears or some other good brand of artificial tears and use two or three times a day to help the healing along.

Usually no big deal if you have a muni water supply.  Well water is a different matter though.  With well water, I would strongly urge a trip to the eye doc, cuz of bacterias that could be in the water can infect the cut. 

Acanthamoeba Keratitis    while rare is the danger.

Etiology and Incidence

Two of the eight known species of Acanthamoeba, A. castellanii and A polyphaga, are responsible for most infections. Acanthamoeba are commonly found, free-living amoeba that have been located in various environments including pools, hot tubs, tap water, shower water, and contact lens solution. In May, 2007, the FDA announced an outbreak of Acanthamoeba keratitis that was associated with Complete MoisturePlus Multi Purpose Solution manufactured by Advanced Medical Optics.

My right eye hurts, A couple of days ago I was opening a bubble pack of batteries and a piece of plastic from the corner flew off and hit me right in the eye. Now 2 days later it hurts. Vision seems ok and of course all the Docs are closed because of the snew and no way am I going to go sit around the ER for 17 hours.

PS - Just read that eye cornea abrasions/scratches sometimes don't start hurting until after a couple days and minor ones usually heal on their own but sometimes antibiotic drops are needed.  

And on a positive note it seems the nosebleeds have finally stopped.
