Down with eye infection. In fact it was nagging at me since after last Thursday but still went ahead with all the field trips. Now cannot close the left eye properly. Went to see doctor and know that its a tear duct infection. Been thinking how this could have happened and finally realised it was due to the dust and bits of soil while I was transplanting the seedlings.
The body is really delicate, just a slight pressure on the eye can cause such discomfort. Just hope the swelling will go away soon. There is still much to be done.
