For years I have been hearing about my friends' kids getting the pink eye, and I thought I hope my kids do not get it!
Well guess What??? I GOT IT!! yeh on Christmas day when I can not go to the doctor to start treatment! BTW does anyone know of a good eye doctor in the tla' el3ali area??
I should have gone to the doctor the minute I noticed one of my eyes is too red, but I thought maybe it is because I am tired...uggh! Now my eye is red, and one is significantly smaller than than the other...not a very good look!
Lets go back in my history...this is the third time I have gotten this in my eye. The first time I was about 6-7 my eye was very swollen though! Everyone was being nice to me, and I recall being in a car going to some one's place in a hill and my neighbour was driving. For some reason I picked that time to put my hands on his eyes blocking them..playing the guess who! Thankfully he did not kill me, because I would kill anyone who does it to me while I am driving!
The second time I was in Lebanon on vacation...I was not allowed to wear makeup for a whole week! But thankfully the week was over the day we went to a Khathem Alsaher concert, and I looked all pretty when I took a picture with him, but my idiot cousin took a picture of us with his body cutting his head off! Unfortunately that was 15yrs ago before we had a digital camera so we found this out too late! I am still mad!
This is the third time in Amman...Hmmmmm it seems my eye gets sick in the middle east...INTERESTING...
Well now when hubby comes on Friday night he will not only see a fatter wife, but one with a pink eye as well and maybe no makeup for few days! crab!
update: Thank you Anon...I totally forgot about the eye hospital,it is a 10min walk from my home! We went there and saw a doctor. I am glad it was open today!
After I finished this post I checked Ziad's eye and yup, he has the pink eye...he is the one who gave to me! His eyes have been red since Sunday, but I thought it was because he was going to bed late and waking up early. DAH at me! Well now we are on antibiotic drops and getting the drops into Ziad's eyes is a pain in the rear!
I had to tell him about the consequences of not taking the drops of course I exaggerated a bit, and I think I scared the hell out of him. He is scared of the drops but he does not want his eyes to get worse so he is letting me put the drops in his eyes, the first time it took us 1hr, the second time it took 10min..hopefully next time it will take the less than 1min it is supposed to take to put a drop in each eye...
