The EYES Have it!

Corny title, I know, but yesterday it was all about the eyes! Not my eyes but the beautiful eyes of my knight in shining armor! The story actually began on Friday when he got home from work and said he had something in his eye! He figured that flushing it with eye wash would solve the problem but by Saturday morning we realized that was probably not so!

Now let me tell you a little about the knight, you see, he is a typical man and will wait and stutter and be in pain and still do nothing about it until it is so bad that he can no longer stand it!! Did he go to the ER on Saturday? Nooooooo, he rode his motorcycle, painted the fence, put down new mulch and helped me plant some new flowers!!

Did he go to the ER on Sunday? NOPE, again!! We spent the afternoon with Papa, or I should say the knight and the diva spent the afternoon with Papa while I met with a bride and groom! I know, I hate to do meetings on Sunday but they are both very busy and this was the only day that would work for them! Anyhoo, when we got home the knight mowed the yard and did the weed eating before it started to rain!! UGH!!

By now he is in pain and ready to cut his own eye out which brings me to yesterday! He had a couple of VA appointments so he decided to wait to have them look at it and I had to drive him, of course, because the sun hurt his eye too bad! So we get to the clinic where he had a 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM appointment and, just my luck, they could not get him in for his eye until 1:00 PM! No big deal, we went out for lunch (a rare treat for me)!

We get back to the clinic for his appointment and two hours later we are finally done and on our way to get an antibiotic drop for his eye! Oh yeah, the piece of STEELE they dug out of his eye had been in there soooo long that it began to RUST! Yup, I said rust! So now he has just left to go to the Marion VA Clinic where they have an eye clinic that can remove the rust from his eye! The only good thing is that they send a car for him and bring him home so the diva and I do not have to make the four hour round trip journey with him!!

Needless to say, the diva was the highlight of all who had the pleasure to be in her presence but I will let her tell you all about it tomorrow in her own words!

Oh I feel the pain. I once had glass in my eye and had to have it flicked out. I fainted on the docter, but it did feel so good to have it out.

I think all guys are the same. I hope his eye is all better.

Sounds so much like my man. Can't get him to see a doc until he's in serious pain. You and your family are in my prayers, I hope his eye is a lot better now.

BTW, I have an award for you. You can pick it up here when you have the time.

Take care.

You'd think because it's his eye he would be more concerned. Now if it were a certain man part they'd break traffic laws to get to the doctor!

Shame on the Knight for waiting so long! I'm glad it's getting taken care of though. No long term damage, right? Tell him that I said next time he has to go right away if he's in pain. He doesn't want to worry his beautiful princess and the little diva!

I wish a speedy recovery for your knight.
