While Lynlee and I were wandering the halls at Heidi's funeral, she picked up a couple of new tricks. One is signing "scared" and she is hilarious doing it. She will sign it and then laugh!
I also love that in this picture you can see Lynlee's latest acquisition--a new tooth! She now has 9.
I kept my eyes closed the whole drive because the light was really bothering them. I thought I was doing OK while we were in line, looking at the beautiful displays.
That was my undoing.
I literally could not see after that. My eye was going crazy and would not clear, even after I stopped crying. I managed to get through the line and talk to Heidi' parents and Paul, and then I had to go sit in the hall until Greg was ready to leave.
We had dropped the car off at our church on the way to the viewing so that I could get right to Fantastic Friday, but I had to text everyone and excuse myself from clean-up duties. Kylene drove with us to pick up the car and then she drove it back to our house.
My official diagnosis--a scratched cornea. I got a prescription for antibiotic eye drops (which make my eye hurt worse) and an order to not wear my contacts until Tuesday. I am doing a lot better now, and just get tired from using my right eye so much.
When I was in 7th grade, my parents let me get contacts for the second time. The first time was in 5th grade, and I kept on losing them, so they waited until I was more responsible. I lost my right contact pretty quickly, but I didn't tell them because I didn't want to get in trouble or have to go back to wearing glasses.
I was in 7th grade, after all.
I wore one contact in my left eye for pretty much the entire school year, until I finally told my parents and they got me a new one.
Ever since, my right eye has been pretty lazy. It will work when it has to, but I pretty much do all of my seeing with my left eye.
This weekend, my left eye has been blurry and sore, and so my right eye is trying to pick up the slack. I am hoping that this is going to be a blessing in disguise, and that both eyes will work better than ever when this is all over.
