Eye hate it when he's right
by Karla ° Tuesday, July 17, 2007

This morning when Nathan woke up, his left eye was all bloodshot. Kind of like he had spent the night boozing it up, but I know he didn’t leave his crib last night because you cannot lower the rails on that thing without creating enough clamor and ruckus to disturb the slumber of Satan himself in the vaults of hell. The crib annoys me that much.

Anyhow, his left eye. The white has been replaced with a murderous shade of red. Mark took one look at it and said, “Oh, he burst a blood vessel.” And I didn’t believe him because the last time I burst a vessel in my eye like that was after a night of violently emptying the contents of a stomach full of daiquiri mix and rum. And for the record, I am not a light weight. It was the sugar.

Ignoring Mark, I turned to the all knowing omnipotent powers of Dr. Google. After a quick scan, the bastard diagnosed my son with pink eye and said that he needed to go and see a real doctor with a real degree right away because his eye might fall out. Also for the record, I thoroughly enjoy reading websites that put the fear of God into me over totally harmless bacteria.

So upon the advice of Dr. Google, I went to see a real doctor with a fancy degree and everything on their wall and as it turns out, Mark was right. Nate's eye has a bursted blood vessel. Probably due to coughing from all of the cigarettes he smokes.

Anyhow, don’t tell Mark that he was right ok? Because I hate it when he’s right.

Instead I’m going to tell him that the cats infected his son with their big crazy herpes.

I promise I won't tell! ;-)

You know, sometimes I think Logan is gonna pop a blood vessel in his eye when he's pushin' out a big poop...maybe that's what happened! ;-)

Hope little Nate's eye clears up soon!

I'm glad it's not an infection and I'm loving reading the mind messing that bloggers are doing with their spouses these days. :)

Oh good thing it's not pinkeye, that would just be hard to do with such a young guy.

I hate it when my husband is right, too.

Fortunately for me, it isn't all that often.

Last time I burst a blood vessel I was pushing out Andrew. Before that, I burst one while being born! I hate to say it, but I'm glad Mark was right.

I've never heard of a busted blood vessel in someone's eye. Icky!

Trey says that when he's right, it takes me four months to come around. No, I know right away, I just don't admit it for that long!

Dr. Google is actually the devil in disguise. Something about every internet-savvy person being provided the information to "diagnose" themselves is just not a good thing. I convinced myself I had "hairy tongue" once, yeah sick and in reality I had a burst taste bud. Then... I also diagnosed myself with menopause, thanks Google. Two for two WRONG. But it is so tempting and freaks me out everytime. Glad to hear your diagnosis for Nate was wrong, even if mark had to be right this one time cuz pinkeye is NASTY.

It does happen: sometimes men are right and women are wrong. Congratulations for admitting it; it's a step. :)
