Have you ever had a paper cut? Of course most of us have. Have you ever had a paper cut to the eye? Yeah, Murphy's Law strikes again. I was in the grocery store with the store flyer in one hand while I reached up on the top shelf for some hand soap. Whaappp! The flyer flipped back into my face. Now, most of us have been hit in the face by papers at one time in our lives or other. This actually left paper cuts on my upper and lower lid, and left small cuts on my cornea. Can we say, "OUCHIE?"
Little things in life get taken for granted until you aren't able to do them. Like walking outside without sunglasses on, reading the paper, watching television, driving, and a reading the microwave instructions on a package of a T.V. dinner to set the timer.
The good news is the doctor said there shouldn't be any permanent damage. If I had waited until Tuesday when my regular optomologist had an appointment open all bets would have been off. So for the next few days, I'll be in my room, twiddling my thumbs, and listening to the television. Waiting until the steroids and antibiotics take hold and I can see clearly enough again to edit, write, and just enjoy my life....I knew I should have eaten more black-eyed peas for New Year's Day....Ratzzzzzzz!
Keep writing and loving the Lord!
