Our Easter morning started out as planned with bagels, coffee and Easter baskets for the girls.
Then, things started to go downhill fast. As I was getting ready for mass, I started feeling a sharp pain in my left eye. Thinking I had something, like an eyelash or a piece of makeup, in the eye and it would get better, my family and I went to church, as planned. Instead, it got progressively worse, and we headed to urgent care, who then sent me to the ER. After, almost five hours there, it was determined I have a ulcer on my cornea and I will be seeing an ophthamologist this morning to determine treatment. Since I don't wear contacts, it may be related to my diabetes. Not exactly the Easter we had planned.
We will always laughingly remember this Easter photo of my daughters, taken in the emergency room. They were good sports and Megan happily watched, the Michigan Wolverines win their basketball game to make it to the final four - even if it was on the waiting room television. And, we all had to laugh, as our special Easter lunch, became Thai take out. I may be writing this post on pain medication, but my family is the reason I am happy.
