because we're friends...please pray

Oh dear, I feel like a pirate.

All I need is that infamous eye patch.

And it seems I may get my wish!

My eye is throbbing and swollen shut and my doctor has declared that I have a  corneal ulcer.

Yikes!  A what!?

At first I thought he said a coronary ulcer.  Umm, am I ever glad I heard that wrong!

Although they can be serious, I'm thankful it's  not my heart.  ^_^

I tried to joke with him about that and he gave me a stern look and said, "You don't want to lose your eye, do you?  This is a potentially blinding condition."

Umm, no sir, I do not.

Yes sir, I will be a good girl and squirt a drop of vigomax (a very expensive drop I might add) in my peep every fifteen minutes.

And I will pray.  A lot.

And I will ask dear friends to pray, too.

Healing in Jesus' Name!

Poor Baby!...you must run to the recliner or outside lounge and put your feet up and think about drops evey 15 min...while...eating chocolate and being read your fav book...or..oooh ooooh...maybe lounging on a floatie in a lake while thinking about being read to...hmmm so many options, while you relax and let your blog buds...hold you up to our Lord and Savior.. the Master of Healing and all things Perfect!

oh, yikes! You're a pretty pirate, though!

Ok, no jokes, per doctor's orders! Hope it heals and you are able to rest your eye :)

Tricia said...

I will pray for your quick healing... it is never easy being sick or having an ailment while being a mommy!


Kristin said...

I will definitely be praying for you, Joye! You are cracking me up though that you still found joy to joke with the Doctor, even if he didn't find it funny.....that's my Joye! I hope you're feeling better soon!

Veronica said...

Gosh Joye...I am so sorry to hear about your eye. I will be praying for you and hope you get better soon!

Yes, I will pray! It sounds painful. My son had a tear in his cornea and had to wear an eyepatch and put stuff in his eyes too, but not every 15 minutes! You poor thing! Aaaaar....sorry, couldn't stop the pirate talk.

Oh my, thank you for the compliment! I think you're a very lovely woman and your blog certainly resembles the loveliness :D I already adore your sense of humor and I'm definitely going to 'follow' your sweet lil' blog to see if your eyeball doesn't fall out :D

Okay okay, that wasn't reassuring at all. I'm sorry, I blame it on my three year old. He wanted to steal my cherries out of my drink a few minutes ago and I told him it was my missing eyeball (with an eyelid shut) :P I'm such a darling mom eh?

Please keep us updated on your eye condition and take very good care of it or I'll start announcing "Aye aye Captain!" every time I visit this blog!
