Today didn't work out as planned. Not that we really had a hard and fast plan, but we didn't expect it to end with the Emergency Room.
Tonight was the final performance of 39 Steps at the school. Though Maggie enjoys the theater and being prop master, she is so tired and drug out from what appears to be a sinus infection. I think that she was glad for it to finally be the end of performance week. I took her to the school at 2pm for the work call and it was after midnight before the performance, set striking, and after party were over with.
While Mags was at the theater, we had our own bit of drama going on here. All summer long, Laynie has been dealing with what we thought were allergies in her right eye. It all came to a head...okay, an eyeball, when she woke up from her nap this afternoon to find her eye totally inflamed and stinging. I took her to the ER and they flushed her eyes. She has a scratched cornea and an infection. She has an ointment to put on her eye until she can get to an ophthalmologist. She plans to go to the eye center at the university tomorrow. She didn't want to risk missing her midterms today.
