11:20 a.m. update: Mary has finished at the doctor. He couldn’t see anything in her eye, and there was only minor scratching. It appears that she had an allergic reaction to whatever got in her eye (we’re guessing a tiny piece of insulation). The inside of her eyelid has reacted to it, thus the watering, swelling, and the doctor saw some small cysts that were part of the allergic reaction and make it feel like something is still in her eye. He was going to prescribe special eye drops (the $100 a bottle kind), but he ended up having some to give us, which was a blessing. Thank you for praying. Hopefully the swelling goes down quickly, and her eye returns to feeling normal.
Even the doctor who Dad spoke with on the phone last night called back minutes ago to check on Mary this morning. What a blessing. The Lord is so good.
Thank you all so much for praying. She slept well last night. This morning, her eyelid is quite swollen. Even though her eye is feeling much better, we thought it to be the safest route to take her to the doctor with the swelling. We will let you know what the update is after her appointment.
