Yesterday, we were getting ready to head to Seattle for Owen's neurology follow up. Taking Owen to Seattle requires a lot of packing. I have to take Brenna's diaper bag, Owen's emergency bag, enough Keto food and drink for the whole day (every meal we won't be home for plus 1 or 2 extras), Owen's medication and supplements for 2 days just in case, our hospital notebook, and extras like jackets and car toys. Just as I was getting out of bed to start on all of the packing as well as normal morning stuff, Brenna decided to play Poke Mommy in the Eye. Only as she was reaching in for the poke, she fell. And landed HARD on my eye, with her finger out. Then to add insult to injury, while I was crying and holding my injured eye, she took the opportunity to break my glasses! I looked at my eye and it was red and swollen, so I put an ice pack on it and proceeded to get ready to go. Luckily we had already planned for Rod to come, so he could drive, because I knew there was no way I could wear my contacts.
The neurologist asked me what was wrong with my eye since it was still watering and incredibly painful if it opened at all. Once I told her she said I needed to get it checked out. I told her I'd already figured that out, I just didn't have time before Owen's appointment. We decided to go to the ER at Swedish instead of coming home first.
It's feeling much better today although my eye is really swollen. I'm not sure if it's from the trauma or if I'm having a reaction to the eye ointment. Now I just need to get in and see if the optician can bend my glasses back enough to wear since trying to see with one contact isn't working very well. I can't wear my other lens until my eye has been pain free for 24-48 hours. Unfortunately I can't drive and Rod really needs to get to work today and Devon has midterms this week. I figure I'll have functional glasses about the time I can wear my contacts again!
