Where Have I Been??

I have been going thru withdrawal. It has been a crazy week. I am sure none of you understand this phenomenon of random crazy weeks. We had something every night (I think this was the second week in a row!)

Monday - I had a girl's night
Tuesday - Chris umpired
Wednesday - Worship
Thursday - Chris had softball games
Friday - I went out of town

And work was crazy!! Whew!!

The additional thing that happened to us this week is that we had to take Hannah to the doctor. A little boy in her class was running with a toy phone and the phone ran right into Hannah's eye. I have some pictures here to try to show you what it looked like but I feel like they don't really show it.

The bad thing is that the next day she was complaining about it so we went to the doctor just to be certain she was OK, and sure enough... It had scratched her retina. (I think retina is the right word - definitely NOT cornea!!) The doctor said it would heal quickly but it was painful so she numbed her eye up and told us to put drops in it for 5 days.

Hannah is much much better now but it was kind of a weird thing. If you have never seen how they look to find a scratch on someone's eye before - - - it is an experience, especially with a hysterical child!!

(These pictures are from the day it happened!)
(I don't know why her teeth look funny in the last picture?!)

(PS - Elizabeth, Hannah is wearing the pants that were Chloe's that you could not find anything to go with and they still had the tags on them. I have this ONE shirt that works pretty well and we love the pants - - Thank You Thank You!! Sorry I didn't get a better picture of the outfit to show you. I thought of it too late! Have I ever mentioned that I love hand-me-downs?)

It is a scratched cornea. It IS very painful and I'm so glad she is better. She is such a ham and fun - even when she is injured! Hope this week will bring more time to rest. Thanks for rescuing me from blog withdrawl syndrome.....

I hope Hannah's eye gets better soon! Tucker had the same thing years ago. Maybe this week will slow down a little for you!

I'm glad Hannah's eye is feeling better. I'm also glad that she is able to wear those pants. I was always bummed that I never found anything to go with them.

Aunt Wendy did that one time in her sleep. It is icky!!! Glad you took her to the doctor to check on it AND glad she is better.

I keep getting retina and cornea mixed up. I know that is terrible!

So glad she wasn't hurt any worse and that her eye is healing. She is such a trooper.

I'd like to see pictures of the other kid after Hannah got him back!
