The morning before last I woke up with an irritated right eye which quickly developed into pink eye. I somehow aquired pink eye at exactly this time last year, shortly after having first arrived in China. I don’t think I’d ever had it in USA, but now I’ve had it twice within about a year. What gives? It’s really bugging me.

In case you didn’t know, pink eye (conjuctivitis) is an external infection of the mucous membrane covering your eye. Symptoms include sensitivity to light, frequent tearing, and irritation.

I’ve tried to call Kat for two days unsuccessfully. Everytime I call the phone rings and no one picks up. I don’t know if I’m dialing incorrectly or if something’s wrong with her fathers cell phone. I’ll try again today!
