Molly poked mommy's eye out!

OK, it's not *that* bad, but the little stinker did poke me in the left eye when I was side feeding her. Hard to see those fingers coming from that angle. Anyway, she got me good on Wednesday and yesterday it was definitely red and irritated. I woke up this morning and had gotten worse during the night. I called my doc and he could see me this morning. Thank god for grandmas because my mom was able to head on over to watch Molly. She went down for her morning nap right before grandma arrived and I was able to head off to my doc solo. Turns out Miss Molly gave mommy some Conjunctivitis (aka pink eye) and a small corneal abrasion (tiny scratch). Luckily the scratch wasn't that bad so I escaped having to wear an eye patch. I was prescribed some medicated drops and sent on my way.

Now, the very first time I ever had an eye drop was a few months back when Molly had once again poked me in the eye. That time I didn't get an infection, but it was a little red and I wanted to make sure there was nothing in there. N looked at me like I was crazy when I tried to get the drops in. I kept blinking *right* as the drop went in so I kept missing my eye. Then he tried and I kept doing it. Even yesterday my mom was holding my eye open with her fingers and I still managed to blink. I suck. I've never had to deal with eye drops before and hopefully this will be the last time. I wonder where I can purchase a mini straight jacket so I can get through this last month of breastfeeding without injury...
