Eye update.

Wow, you all overwhelmed me with your kind responses and help regarding my eye problems! Thank you so much!!

I dropped the kids off at a friend's house and was able to go to the doctor today. The family doctor then referred me to an eye doctor and had an appointment set up for me for the next hour since he knew I was having someone watch the kids for me. Turns out I have a cornea infection (keratitis, I think it was), so it was very good that I got it checked finally before it led to scarring and permanent damage to my eyes. I was prescribed eye drops and given orders to wear my glasses as much as I can for the whole week. (sigh) But I'm sooo glad to finally get this fixed!! So, pray that I can get the darn drops in my eyes the next few days (that's sooo hard for me!) and that I'll be faithful about wearing my glasses even though I hate hate hate them. I was given a trial pair of contacts for when I do wear my contacts, so those should cover me until our household items get shipped to us and the rest of my contacts arrive!

Thank you all so much for your prayers! You've been so kind! Hopefully I'll have happy, healthy eyes again soon!

Hey Girl... we have been out of town for a few days... I had no idea until this morning when I read your blog that you were having problems. I hope everything gets better soon. I'll be praying for you. I love the pics of the house. I know you are excited!! Talk to you later.

I'm glad you got the problem diagnosed! Do you know how your eyes could have been infected? I would like to know if there is anything in particular that I could avoid to keep from getting my own peepers infected like that!

Sarah, this is the same thing my husband had. The doc told him it was very important not to wear contacts. Contacts will keep reinfecting the eye. I will continue to pray for you.

Nope, don't kow what caused the infection! But oh so glad to finally be seeing better!
