Amazing how such small things can make such a big impact.
Sunday my right eye felt a little funny. Like there was something in it. I'd blink, and it would feel like a record needle was running across my eye. I tried to take a look and didn't see anything, so I brushed it off figuring my tears would wash it out.
Monday morning I woke up and the eye was a little bit swollen in the corner.
By Tuesday the entire eyelid had ballooned and I was now in a constant state of pain.
I called tele-health after dinner, explained my situation, and they said I needed to seek medical attention immediately. So Crystal called up her Mom, asked if she'd be able to watch Kai, and off we went to RVH.
3 hours later (quicker than I had expected) the attending physician gave my the scoop on my condition. Something got into my eye, a stye formed, got infected and caused my eyelid to balloon out and take on a purple'ish hue. He wasn't sure but said he hopes there isn't an abscess that would require me to come back and have a 'minor procedure' to remove it.
I left with some oral medication, eye drops and instructions to apply a warm cloth to the affected area every 2-3 hours.
Seems to be working don't you think?

So invite your neighbour to church this weekend.
Have some friends you haven't seen in a while over for dinner.
Offer your spouse some encouragement when you walk through the front door at night.
Small things can have a big impact. Stand back and watch the ripples.
