Well, I have lots to tell about my time in Florida but let's start with the bit at the end of it when things really turned weird. The day before I was due to fly home and we were visiting Blizzard beach in the Disney resort about mid afternoon I said to the wife "it's gone a bit misty hasn't it"no she said looking at me as if I were daft. By 5:30 it was downright foggy to me and so I called at a pharmacy for some eyewash and hoped all would be well next morning. Next morning and things were worse, and so it was off to a walk in medical centre down the road. After what seemed like hours with the flight time fast approaching I was finally examined by a doctor.What happened next would never happen in England, or in most other places for that matter and it really freaked out my wife and daughter. After putting drops of dye into my eyes and looking at them with UV light she shouted " OH MY GOD" and ran to tell other medical staff to come take a look. Well, I asked "can you give me something and I'll go and catch my plane." she said "no way if this isn't treated within the next few hours you will lose at least one eye" What a drama queen eh? at this point, it was decided that the wife and daughter would go back to the hotel to cancel flights and rebook the room, and so I was left awaiting a call back from a local eye clinic. Ten minutes later the last of my sight went and I was left totally blind.
