Pencil in the Eye

on Friday, February 6, 2009

Where have I been, you say?

Here's the story. My son has 2 good friends...kind of like the Three Muskateers....One of those boys threw a pencil at the other boy and it stuck him in the eye. Yuk! It was serious...emergency surgery that night and will likely need a cornea transplant and a lens transplant. They both feel so bad for the other's been a great thing to see both boys being so good to each other. What a witness.

The pencil went into all the way into the red part of that picture and leaked this gooey liquid called vitreous fluid. We went to see him tonight and he's got a super hero looking patch over it. It's see through...not like a pirate patch. Very high techy and plastic. Docs are saying it will be a year or so before he's back to his old self.

If you're a praying sort of person, that would be great.

By the way...we're still looking for the pencil!
