Normally I write my post for Sunday on Saturday but unfortunately my husband had an accident yesterday and we spent the day at the emergency room. He was putting lime dust under our house because of the flooding problems that we have here. He had a clump of lime dust go into his left eye. He came into the house yelling that he needed help.
We flushed it with water for 15 minutes and then I grabbed Caleb out of his bed and we took him to the ER. He burned 30% of his cornea and had a clump of the lime dust embedded into his cornea. They had to remove the lime dust and rinse his eye with saline. I had no idea that there aren’t any pain medications that help eye pain. Now we do.
Mike was in unbelievable pain and still is. His vision is blurry and he can’t stand to have any light hit his eyes. They do expect his vision to clear up eventually and over time the pain should ease but for right now he needs your prayers. He meets with the doctor that removed the lime dust from his cornea tomorrow and I am praying that he gets good results.
So onto our menu for the week. I am changing my menu from what I had originally planned to make this week easier on us considering doctors appointments and all of the time it is taking to treat his eyes daily. This week I will be having cranberry pecan muffins for breakfast with low carb yogurt.
For our dinners we will have the following:
Monday- left over BBQ pork chops that made using the sauce from this recipe and cooking in the crockpot on low for 7 hours.
Tuesday- left over meatloaf
Wednesday- sausage and eggs
Thursday- Bacon Burgers
Friday- left over bacon burgers
Saturday- Beef Roast Braised in Zinfandel
