Yesterday was a rough day for me. The eye appointment went fairly well. Since they were dilating my eyes, my mom came to take me so I wouldn't have to drive afterward. I already have been experiencing light sensitivity, so it was quite intense yesterday when my eyes were fully dilated. I ended up with a horrendous headache. The kind where I couldn't handle extra light or noise.
I was to be leading my ladies Bible study last evening. I already had canceled the session before because I had had a bad headache then as well. I did not want to have to cancel again. I had gotten the lesson written up before we left for my eye appointment and asked my mom to go over it while she waited on me for my eye exam, just as a backup if for some reason I couldn't lead that night. Well I guess with having my eyes fully dilated, and already being light sensitive, made me end up with a monster of a headache. My mom graciously stepped in and led the group last evening while I laid in my bed.
She also has helped assist me with eye drops that I need to put in my eyes four times a day. This morning she taught my son how to do it, so he can help as well. I'll have to figure out a way of doing it by myself at night time. Even though she had to leave this morning, she is willing to come back again if I need her. So today, I am thankful for my mom, who was there in my time of need.
