Please pray that my right eye gets better. I have a persistent corneal abrasion that is not getting better. I was at the eye doctor again yesterday afternoon. It causes me blurry vision and some pain in my right eye. The left side is really good. He bandaged up my eye but that didnt help much after one night. I was not putting enough medicated jelly in it. So we go till middle of next week putting more drops and jelly in it and wearing more bubbles (clear patches) even during the day. After Memorial Day the doctor who does the stitching will be back in. I'm hoping by then that things heal.
I don't know why this has gotten me down so much. I was emotional and just wanted to cry on the way home. I know it is not that big of a setback but I think it is just a sign to me that things keep getting worse rather than better. I also felt a bit sick yesterday evening which was the first time in the last couple weeks.
Overall I've been doing good and had a good week at work. But yesterday evening was really hard, both on me and Leann. Just pray that we can keep going on despite the setbacks.
Another really exciting thing to me is our new barn is almost finished. There are a couple small details like the driveway to finish up. We got baby chickens yesterday and it has been so exciting to see Wesley take charge of things. He does all the work and all I do is supervise to make sure we aren' making a big mistake. We looked up online taking care of chicks so he knows what to watch for. I think it has surprised even me as to how rewarding small things are like this now.
