Can anyone say Bacteria, Birthday Presents, and a New Freebie

Ok, it is official, I hate giving titles to my blog, so you get a caption of what is included in the post, that is as good as I can do, but at least it leaves a element of

Since Wed at 11 PM I have been dealing with this, here is my story....*caution, could gross you out*

ok, so Thursday night at about 5 pm, my eye started producing yellow guck, and I thought "oh great, I have pink eye", the kids had it over the last two weeks! Well, by midnight I was pretty much spent, I had a film over my eye couldn't see anymore and had to go to bed immediately. I was so irritated, and my kids eyedrops are at daycare, forgot them there, so couldn't even use those, well so.....3 Am I wake up to a face *when I mean face I mean nose cheeks and eye* full of crusty yellow discharge guck, my eye had been draining, seriously freaked me out! So, I told Dean I was going to take a bath, and I had so much pressure and throbbing there I could have just cried, well, I cleaned it up only to find out the large amounts of crust that I thought were glueing my eye shut, were not the reason I couldn't open my eye and that is when it hit me, my eye was swollen shut, not a peep hole in site, not even with effort. So, went downstairs and sat in the porch until the sun came up doing a warm wash cloth on it, and then I finally went to bed at 6 AM, well woke at 10 AM and no better, so decided to go into urgent care.....the Dr there felt it was not acute conjungtivitis or pink eye as we all know it too well, but rather some nasty other bacteria that had invaded my precious eye and was causing major trouble and she prescribed me oral and eyedrop antibiotics. Well, with effort, I can open a little but it takes alot of effort but as the day has gone on and eyedrops every two hours, I have a peep hole, YaY! Now I can design! I work as a dental hygienist and I have very good personal protective equipment and I am very careful at work, wear safety glasses, gloves, mask, ya name it. I do however, use instruments that produce aerosols that can spray up to six feet from the chair, and my patients in the last two weeks have been hard, and when I say hard, I mean plaque and calculus everywhere, I swear they all waited to come in at the same time over the last two weeks with their messy mouths, like they planned it over the phone or something, and I don't normally talk this way about my work, I don't discuss it at all, but let me tell ya my stress level has been through the roof. So, it wouldn't surprise me if one of the 500+ normal flora free floating bacteria in every mouth I saw in the last two weeks, got in my eye and thus the infection. I mean the glasses work, but some microscopic stuff has got to get around them. Here is what is weird, I am a victim of Migraines I have been for 5 years now, I always, always always, have them start on the right side of my face with the little light show in my right eye and then I am bound to bed for 24 hours and usually throw up! ICK, they suck, and meds only take the edge off. Well, this past Wed night about 11 PM I got a migraine but much different from my very other consistent migraines as this one manifested on the left side right behind my left eye, it was the worst I have ever had, threw up three times and wanted to die, spent all day Thursday in bed, however once I was on the road to getting a little better, I still had my laptop in bed, God forbid I am off it even with a migraine, but for most of it I couldn't move. Then, the next day Friday, which was yesterday, I get this nasty eye infection in my left eye, I just have to wonder, if this ugly bacteria is what triggered my migraine and left me debilitated for 24+ hours and now this, UGGG...I just had to vent.So I know that was probably way too much info for some of you, but I am a details girl! LOL

Ok, so here is a pic of the eye, the first is the shut position which at this point is the comfy position, and the second is a pic with a slight peep hole with much much effort in opening! I am so ugly here no makeup and it couldn't get worse with my friend Bacteria present!

So I thought I would liven this place up a bit with a story of my week from the deep depths of the pit! LOL
Ok, onto a more exciting note...did you know it is OAKS month long birthday party, hehehe, as if you didn't holy smoke, I have been posting about it and it is all over the this is it and this weekend we have Birthday Presents, which are *grab bags* if you will full of surprises for $2.

FREEBIE ALERT and well, what can I say I have been meaning to blog, but....

I have been so busy and I will show you why in a minute! First let me share, that after a 76 day battle for life in the hospital at the age of 68 my aunt Norma Jean Ware passed away of a cardiac event. She had open heart surgery which is what started off this long journey and the surgery had complications and after many other complications with her colon and a hernia and septicemia post surgery, she lost the battle to a very sudden cardiac event, and she had many set backs but was well on her way to the road of recovery. We are very saddened by this news. after 76 days of prayer, the battle is over for her and thankfully she is resting quietly in the arms of our heavenly father! Ok, so on a different note, did I mention that it was my daughter Ava's birthday yesterday and she turned 4...heres a pick of the squirt. Here favorite birthday present, MP3 player she loves to sing and she sings really LOUD with it on, she is so funny.
