Good Afternoon Everyone!
Well, things haven't been working out all that well for me these past few weeks. This past Friday, things got even worse. As many of you know, our finances have been in a rough patch lately. And I could deal with that. I am dealing. Praying very hard, but dealing. But that's nothing compared to what happened this past Friday.
My husband woke up at 4 in the morning with an irritation of sorts in his eye. He went downstairs to put eye drops in but couldn't do it himself. Not wanting to wake me up he just came back upstairs and tried to go back to sleep. Well of course I was awake and I asked if he had brought the drops upstairs. He hadn't so I went down and got it. I came back up and put a big drop in his eye. Unfortunately, it turned out to be SUPER GLUE!! I super glued his eye shut.
Now let me explain how that happened. It was 4 am. Jesse had left the super glue out on the coffee table. The bottle is cone-shaped. It also had ZERO writing on it. I was confused and it happened. I took him to the ER and they did NOTHING for him. Actually said there was nothing to do. Well I had called Poison Control and they said that they most certainly should have done something. They could have applied Lubricon which is an oil-based ointment to get the eye open. Or Vaseline or mineral oil. They also should have contacted the opthamologist on call. Well I called him myself and made an appointment for Kenny on Saturday. Dr Zambelli himself called me back and talked with Kenny. Explained again to us what we should be doing and then called back later that evening. He wanted to see Kenny first thing in the morning. At 6:40 am Kenny was in the doctor's office and he got his eye open. Gave him 2 different antibiotics and he goes back again today. But PRAISE THE LORD, there was no damage to his eye. I was hysterical. I thought for sure I had blinded my own husband.
So that's what's been going on here. Please say a prayer for him (for us) and I'll check in again soon. Thanks to everyone for your prayers already. We need them!
