....And God is probably laughing.

So today is my 6-week postpartum checkup, and all you mommies know what that means.  I've been a good girl, and followed the doctor's orders.  And let me tell you, it's been a LONG six weeks in that aspect.

And this is what I look like today.
Sexy.  I'm not sure I've even washed my face this morning, other than my eyes.

I don't know what's going on with my eye.  It started Wednesday afternoon. I just thought something was in it, and that it would get better overnight.  I woke up yesterday with it crusted shut, but our eye doctor is closed on Thursdays, so I couldn't see him.  This morning it was again crusted shut, but really swollen - almost swollen shut.  Paul wants me to call the eye doctor, but I don't want to pay $35 to see the eye doctor if it's something the regular doctor can take care of, since I'm already scheduled to see her.  I'll go to the eye doctor after my checkup, if she thinks I need to.
God is probably laughing at the joke he's pulled on us.  Do you think my husband can even stand to look at me?
Oh well.  Maybe he finds the Cyclops look sexy.

Brutal! And I'm sure after six weeks it wouldn't matter if both eyes were crusted shut! Good luck....with the eye.

Doctor's diagnosis: allergic reaction. I have no idea what I'd be allergic to, but I'm definitely reacting! Since I'm nursing, I can't really take anything (she said otherwise she'd give me steroids for it)... She had me use Benadryl cream on my upper and lower eyelids, and that has helped with the swelling. (Oral Benadryl can dry up your milk, I've heard.) My eye is a lot redder this evening than it was this morning, and tearing up like crazy, but I think if I really smear on the cream and get a good night's sleep, I'll be on top of it by morning.
I hope.
