Thank God for Sunglasses

This is dedicated to anyone who's ever given me a hard time that I only put up pictures on my blog that are flattering of me-


So, yesterday, mid-afternoon, I started to notice I was getting a little more gunk in the corner of my eye than usual. Hmmm, I've got a cold, perhaps I'm doing the Mikayla thing and having a little of the snot come out of my eyes..... but, throughout the evening it got worse, and worse, and more gunky and gunky - and by the end of the evening I felt like the little guy in "Hunchback of Notre Dame". (I will say it was a divine evening on the lake - perhaps one of my favorite trips out with Michele, the kids, John and Travis - really having fun on that wakeboard and the water was glass).

This morning it looked even worse. I could barely pry it open. This pic is better than when I first woke up. On the positive side, I don't need to worry about eye make-up. We'll see what becomes of this, I'm hoping my doc takes pity and goes ahead and calls in the antibiotic - I know this thing could be viral, but it would probably help me emotionally to know I'm taking something for it to supposedly go away.

Have a good one everyone - this is definitely one of those that looks a lot worse than it is, so I'll see what kind of fun I can have behind my shades today.......

Steph, I can definitely say I feel your pain! I've had eye infections (and had to humble myself to the glasses-no makeup look) for months now and am now seeing a specialist in Eugene for what he has diagnosed as rosacea. I'm on a wonderful battery of antibiotics (pills, drops, and ointment), hot compresses, cleansers, and lube drops and still one eye has flared again. I HATE that gunk, and the morning crusties, and the painful eyelids.

Just try to keep your hands away from your kids' faces so it doesn't turn into the gift that keeps giving!

I hope you get your drops and get better real fast...

Oh, wow, Heather, so sorry. And, no offense, but not so sure I wanted to hear that! I want this to be a one time problem, quickly healing, etc. But, I will be in prayer for you that yours gets healed for good quickly too.....

Sorry, I didn't mean to freak you out - maybe I was overeager to tell someone what I've been dealing with.

I'm like the rare case here. You just have pinkeye and as soon as you get your drops it will clear up!
