Late the other night J and I were sitting watching a movie when all of a sudden both of my eyes started feeling really strange. I ran to the bathroom to check it out and there I saw the white's of my eyes bulging past the colored part. WHAT THE!!!!!!! I thought either my brain was swelling and pushing my eyes out or that I was having a stroke (?) or going blind. I ran and got the "not-at-all eye doc" I married and he said b/c it came on so suddenly it was probably an allergic reaction. I took some benadryl and we decided to race to the ER (thank you Bonnie!!!- our friend and neighbor who was over in a flash to sit with our sleeping kids). Lucky for me, the "not-at-all eye doc" I married still happens to be a doctor who works in that very ER and we were in and out of there in under 3hrs (great for that time of night). They said it was chemosis-an allergic reaction to something. They irrigated my eyes, tested the ph, and stained them to check for abrasions. What was I allergic to? No clue. But, Jordan, I will go on a super freaky rather expensive date with YOU anytime.
The first pic is a not so great shot taken when it first started happening.
