I have to tell you the crazy thing that happened this morning! I woke up to Kylee at the side of my bed at 6am. She was crying and holding her eye. She said that she had fallen out of her bed and hit her eye. I was still very out of it and kinda patted her back and gave her a hug. She was still crying and saying that she hit her eye. I told her to get a pillow and blanket and she could sleep on our couch that is in our room. So she went and got that and was still crying. Finally, and I don't know if it was that I was just so tired and wasn't hearing her right but she said, "Mom! When I fell a pen got stuck in my EYE!"
"WHAT!!!" I yelled and jumped out of bed and turned the light on. There was a mark about half an inch or less below her eye. She said that after she fell out of bed and realized she was hurt she came into our room. She was half way down the hall before she realized that a pen was sticking out of her face and she yanked it out! Can you believe that!!!
I inspected the wound and just stretched the skin out a little to see how deep it was and that's when I started to feel sick. For those of you who don't know I have the weakest stomach you will ever meet. I made it to James' side of the bed and was able to wake him up, saying that I needed him and that was the last thing I remember. I woke up a couple seconds later with my face in the carpet!! Yup, I fainted. James didn't know what was going on and Kylee is looking on in horror at her Mom on the floor. I mustered enough strength to tell James to check out Kylee's eye. I felt sooooo ridiculous. Here I am lying on the floor and I can't even take care of my poor Kylee. I sure wish I was stronger when it came to gross things like that. It wasn't even that big of a wound! I am a big dork.
Luckily Kylee's eye is fine. She might have some bruising, but she sure did get lucky. We realized later that she had landed on her art box that had a bunch on pens and pencils sticking out of it.
I will add this one warning- TRUST THOSE GUT FEELINGS, OR THE SPIRIT-AWLAYS-Because earlier that night I went to check on the kids and Kylee was on the edge of her bed. My gut told me to scoot her over but I didn't, thinking she would be fine. Arrgggg! ALWAYS DO WHAT THE SPIRIT TELLS YOU TO DO, EVEN LITTLE THINGS!!!
