Ouch Ouch My Eye

Posted Feb 01 2013 12:00am

I haven’t mentioned this at all but my left eye feels like it’s about to pop out of it’s socket.  I’m prone to pressure headaches from weather and these crazy up and down temperatures are probably the cause of it.  Because it was behind my eye (which let’s face it, kinda scary) I went to the doctor last night.  He’s pretty sure it’s a sinus headache.  Let’s cross our fingers that’s what it is.

I’ve foolishly started with the end of this story.  Let me rewind.  Brad was the first one to make a doctor’s appointment for Thursday evening.  He injured his elbow last week and after five days of my hounding he finally called to schedule one.  Yes his left elbow, his dominant elbow, the elbow that we shall call the bread winner.  The elbow that is connected to his left hand which draws all the weird stuff and people pay him a salary and thus I get go grocery shopping.  That elbow is injured.

His appointment was at 4:45 and mine was at 5:15.  I beat him there (from school) but he still goes in first.  I had no idea what the heck is taking him so long but he walks out and says:

Brad: “are you going to the opthamologist?”

Me (I look around for dramatic effect): “I’ve been sitting here the whole time, and what does the opthamologist have to do with your elbow?”

Brad: “oh I thought you went in already”

Me: “We have the same Dr, you were just with him”

Brad: “Well the elbow thing went quick so I told him that I scratched my eye and he wants me to go to the opthamologist so I was thinking we could go together”

Luckily (for him) I was then called into the treatment room.  Brad will have to go to the opthamologist himself.  However, our doctor did clear him for one thing.


I’m going to be training Brad at the gym for the next two to three weeks.  The man loves to lift weights right, but with this elbow injury he is done for.  Our doctor recommended that he stick to legs.  I took Brad through a lower body / body weight workout earlier this week and he didn’t seem to fancy it.  Not so strong now are we Mr Bradley Schwarzenegger Leitch?  The first thing our doctor told me when he walked into the treatment room was that he told Brad I could keep training him.  I’m going to Jillian Michaels the $%@# out of him for the next few weeks.

Okay okay let me show you some pics.  On the way home we hit up the health food store, the magical magical health food store.  It literally blows Brad’s mind how many types of tea are in there.

We bought:

  • Sleepytime Extra
  • Decaf Green Tea Kombucha
  • Almond Biscotti white tea
  • Rooibos Chai
