Well, we had a little excitement in our home. Sorry it's taken so long to post this, but I've been busy with exams. Anyways, Tim came home the other week (on a Tuesday) complaining that something got in his eye at work. He was eating lunch, had something ON his eye, decided to rub it (DUHH!) and rubbed it INTO his eye. So, that night when I arrived home, his eye was red in and around his eye from rubbing it and working at getting the foreign object out. So, being a mom you know that you don't rub your eyes, but no one listens when you tell them, not even the husband. We rinsed his eye out with drops (didn't work), we tried to slowly move it over in order to get it out with a Q-tip (didn't work), finally I went to the pharmacy and bought an eye flush.............and...............you guessed it, didn't work. By the time I bought the eye flush, he had apparently rubbed it so much that when I looked with my penlight, it had lodged in is eye, NOT GOOD!!!! I made him a doctors appt and sure enough, he had logded it in there and scar tissue had begun to grow around it. The eye doctor dilated and numbed his eye, then pulled out the DRILL!!! He had to use a drill to get the piece out of Tim's eye and then drilled some more to clean up the rust and scar tissue left behind by the metal piece. Thankfully, his eye sight will not be effected in any way. The damage and scarring is to the left of the iris, so will have no lasting effect. Hopefully next time when he's told to "quit rubbing your eye", he'll listen.
