Have you ever had Pink Eye? It sucks!! I got it this week. Randomly. On Wednesday morning, I woke up with a sore throat and my eyes were itchy. I thought it was allergies. I mowed the grass the day before and just assumed it was from that.

By about lunchtime, I noticed my eye was red and still itchy. Then it felt like something was in my eye. Now anything having to do with my eyes makes me a big baby. I cannot touch my eye or put drops in my own eye. It was hurting so bad I was desparately looking for the eyedrops. I called Michael pretty frantic asking where they were, because of course they were not where they should be. I finally got some drops into my eyes and received a little relief. But as the day progressed it got worse and worse. Swelling started, green gunk started, and the need to close my eye, well that was all I wanted to do. By the time it got to the point where I knew something was really wrong with my eye and thought I might have pinkeye, my doctor's office was closed. GRRR. I had some medicine from when I thought Addison might have it, turns out it probably was pinkeye for her too, and tried it on my eye. I think it might have made things worse. My yesterday morning my eye was so swollen that I called the doctor first thing and got in to see them. Confirmation...PINKEYE!!! BOO!!! But I did get some drops for my eyes, awesome! And I am already seeing a little improvement. YAY! If you don't like all things yuck, stop reading or looking, because I am going to share a few pictures.

Please pray that the rest of my family doesn't get pinkeye, but just in case my wonderful doctor gave me refills on the drops. I guess I won't be going out in public anytime soon for fear of scaring young children.

Right After Mason woke up from a nap.

Red but not yet swollen. Ignore the messy Mom hair and no makeup.

Yesterday morning. This was improvement from waking with my eye almost swollen shut. 

Yesterday afternoon, after a visit to the doctor.

This morning. Looking better. Less swollen and definitely less red than last night.

Michael and I have been together since 2006. We met in college at the University of Arkansas and began our life together. We bought a house and moved to Fayetteville from the Chicagoland area in November 2009. We were married in 2010 and had our first child, a boy, in 2013. Our favorite thing to do together is travel and we have gotten the opportunity to go to lots of fun places. We are working, breathing, playful parents. Our fur baby and child are the center of our crazy life, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
