True Story Tuesday - Can You Hear Me Now?

Y'all - can you believe it's time for another True Story Tuesday already?!






Easy as snitching an extra piece of chocolate cream pie on Mother's Day (*ahem* not that I'd know anything about that).  Just grab the code underneath the TST button on the right sidebar, copy and past it into your post.  Bet you've already got a hilarious/amazing/outrageous/miraculous and (mostly) true post written, or at least begging to be written, right?  Come back and leave the link to your post and we'll be by for some comment love!

This week brought to you by the rather brave Mr. Daddy who must really enjoy the couch...

~

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?


Well it's TST time again, and Rach has coughed up the perfect story this weekend...

As you all know we have been fighting the bug around here for the last few weeks, with a butt-load of stress from some outside sources....

Along with losing her voice and sporting a terrible wracking cough, she also got a nasty eye infection to go along with it all.... IN BOTH EYES.

Yeah my gal does nothing half way....

(Rach In: Umm, thanks Hon? For that lovely visual you just gave all my friends).

So we go to the Doc's office last week and get some eye drops for her eyes. She faithfully administers the doses, and her eyes at least start to clear up a little, cause them puppies were bad looking, like two pee out holes in a snow bank bad...

(Warning:  Graphic image ahead that will make your eyes water)




(Rach In:  Oh.no.you.dinnt.  I was only kidding about the lovely visual - take it back!  Take it back!  You'd better watch your TST backside!  On a side note, those "ladies" on my doorstep should have run when they saw this, right?)

We get up Sunday morning and her left eye is looking red and inflamed, and painful looking...

So she heads off to the bathroom to put some of the prescription eye drops in....

Now folks she is deaf, but there is definitely nothing wrong with her pipes. There was the most God-awful commotion and sounds coming from our bathroom....shrieking and stomping her feet, and a fair amount of pre-church communion with God...

(Rach In:  I think you lovingly referred to it as "caterwauling", Dear.  And for the record - seeing as it's MY BLOG and all - I was simply urgently letting the man know, "I'M BLIND!  I'M BLIND!")

My first thought was she had accidentally gotten into my country fresh elk urine, cause I keep it in a similar looking applicator bottle... and everyone knows that it is as good a battery acid for removing stains and minor irritants.

(Rach In: Ohhhhhhhhhhh!)

So I rush in to save my precious hunting scents check on my beautiful wife, to find that there was nothing to worry about in that regard. She had just mistakenly picked up her ear drops, which are in the same looking applicator bottle as the eye drops, (and elk pee).....

Now she claims not, but I'm thinking that she might have thought that the ear drops would enable her to read lips better, cause she is a smart gal after all. But I'm here to tell you, the results were not quite what she was counting on...

(Rach In:  Oh My Lord, you did not just say that)

But if you go by the old adage that if it tastes like crap, or hurts like the dickens, it is good for what ails you, then she definitely had picked a winner....

When I finally caught up to her and pieced together the story, we Googled the ear drops to find that although they are not FDA approved, some doctors had prescribed it for some eye infections...

(Rach In:  Excuse me?!?!  You were bent over double laughing while I held a towel to my face and squinted with the other eye while frantically typing with one finger.  A lotta help YOU were!  And while we're at it - thanks for offering to "rinse" my eye out with the kitchen sink sprayer... THAT HURT LIKE THE DICKENS)

Told you that my gal was smart....*snicker*

But I'd give you even money that the elk urine woulda been a better bet.....

just saying..........

So don't be shy - we don't bite, and we like to laugh!  Add your link below and we'll stop by soon!

OH bless your heart Rachel. You are having it rough. Your eyes look so painful. Even more prayers going up for you. You guys do crack me up though I have to admit.

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

OWWWWW! Rachel, that sucks! It totally sounds like something that I would do though. I hope that your eyes have fully recovered by now!

Elk pee? I am so out of the hunting loop! I had no idea that you put elk pee on you to entice animals, uh... am I wrong to say that's totally gross. If you are looking for deer though there a butt load by Evergreen College, I swear I have to dodge them at least once a day!

Dyann said...

You are not alone.

My mother did the exact same thing, and it hurt like the dickens. I'll have to ask if she can read lips better, though. Too funny!

jsimplylive said...

Rachel, ouch! Reading your post I had flashbacks on this past fall/winter. I had the same symptoms you have and the docs couldn't figure out what was going on. I was coughing like crazy to the point that I was taking two cough supressant pills...and the eyes...mine looked like yours too. Thank goodness I got better.

Kmama said...

Oh ow. I'm wincing just thinking about it. We have pink eye in our house too. Grr.

Okay, now this is the part that had me laughing out loud: "Now she claims not, but I'm thinking that she might have thought that the ear drops would enable her to read lips better, cause she is a smart gal after all."

So to laugh at your expense Rachel, but man that was funny!!

Kelly said...

Oh Rachel - that is terrible! Hon I hope you are all cleared up and feeling better soon, looks like you are going to have to beat Mr. Daddy for that visual, and I gotta say that the first time I really read your blog and you said that you were deaf I though you were being sarcastic, telling those women that to get rid of them. I guess I was wrong. Feel better! - Mr. Daddy - you have no sense at all! LOL

Michelle said...

Oh.my.goodness... Mr. Daddy, that is so not nice. Shame on you! :) Rach, I would not have laughed at you. At least, not while you were looking.

TheRixonFive said...

Oh my gosh, that was awesome. In your defense, Rach, those dang drops all look the same! Whew! You guys are great for a laugh. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Foursons said...

So is that really a picture of your eyes?

And oh my goodness, have you ever been through the wringer! What in the world are we going to do with you?

Girl, go raid Mr. Daddy's wallet. Grab his gold VISA and check into the poshest hotel around for a week. Insist on room service and private massages, oh and a facial too. Just because. If you aren't better in a week book another week just like it. Repeat actions until you are 100% yourself again. And if/when anyone complains, just tell them I told you to do it. That should shut them up.

Beth said...

Oh My GOODNESS!
You guys are so funny! Pre-church communion with God indeed! LOL! I think I'd insist that the elk pee be stored elsewhere. And Rachel? Feel better soon!

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

Oh, Rachel, that had to hurt so bad! I had a massive eye infection in both eyes when I was pregnant with Lexie. Strep, an eye infection, and horrible morning sickness all at once, that landed me in the hospital. I was beyond miserable! The eyes hurt the most!
Now...I can't believe Mr.Daddy posted that picture. Some serious payback is in order.

He & Me + 3 said...

For the Love. I swear, I say that every time I come over here. But how painfully funny. I mean painful for you. Girl that reminds me of the time I cut jalapeno peppers and then took out my contacts. The next day when I put them in...my eyes burned for a good 10 minutes. Hot Stuff.
Hope your eyes are better because you don't want to be reading any more labels wrong. Just sayin.
((hugs))

Tiffany said...

Personally, I think you all need to pick some different looking bottles to store all of your stuff. Cause eye drops won't do you a lick of good at hunting camp! Mr. Daddy, you are one brave man. There is no way I would willingly incur the wrath of Rachel. You had better watch your bloggy behind for a while!

Eden Reflections Photography said...

OH NO! That might be the funniest thing I've heard in a long time, but Oh... POOOR YOOOUUU!! I don't even want to imagine the pain that must have caused!

wife.mom.nurse said...

oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh nooooooooooooooo, you poor thing!

Those eyes looked painful before the ear drop disaster.

Feel better soon!

Oh, check for an email from me about our trip. I gave you my regular email to write back :)

Really hope it works out to see you two!

All I can say is OUCH! And I am sorry but I laughed a little bit too! Hope your eyes feel better soon!

Adrienne said...

Sorry about the eyes =( sad faces for you ...Also sorry I have not linked up in a while spring in the boat business is rough

HeatherOz said...

Oh no! But that is hilarious! My husband's eyes looked just like that when he self-diagnosed his pink eye! hee hee
I was working on my TST post for today and god sidetracked with extra babies and a sick daughter. I will have it all prepared for next week!

Aunt Crazy said...

So, since I'm a day late linking up, I can't help but ask Mr. Daddy how his night on the sofa was last night...bwahahaha

City girl turned Country Girl said...

Oh Dear Lord did that make my eyes water!! Even with the warning! You poor thing! I'm hoping that you are all well now?!

Stacy said...

Oh my Lord, you poor thing Rachel! Your eyes definitely look awful and hope you are feeling better now.

BTW those ladies may have just thought you tied one on the night before and REALLY, REALLY need some saving LOL!

Crystal @ Semi-Crunchy Mama said...

Oh, ouch! I'm hoping you're feeling much better now!

brian said...
