Update on my boo-boo

Peek-a-boo! Just a little update on my eye...
I'm getting a lot of looks and since it was an accident that occurred in a martial arts class, I can't help but chuckle at people. Some look at me and when I make eye contact they immediately look down. So assume that I am get abused and offer things like their Green Beret (sp?) friend to "take care of him" to offering me a bat. Those in martial arts ask right away "Tae-kwon-do?" "Kickboxing?"... nope, MMA! But close enough
I've bee good and ice it every so often and I do it at work, too!


When my eye FINALLY opened, I saw the redness from the "subconjunctival hemorrhage" (it was on the emergency department chart sheet). It freaked me out because it's only on oneside. I look like a scary monster, well, my eye does.

well......... before I read the post and just saw this pic I thought "what the hell... WHO HIT VANESSA??!!!!" so of course seeing a shiner on a girl automatically makes people think she's been abused or hurt by someone.... LOL.. martial arts!!!

Well, a guy DID hit me, but not the way many think. This weekend was the first time I went out in public with Jay and he was getting a lot of looks. Poor Guy! I should have a T-shirt for him and one for me. His would say "I didn't do it!" I mine woulf say "David did it!" LOL... not that they would know who David is.

I've been getting a lot of catalogs in the mail, and one has a lot of T-shirts. One actually DOES say, "Whatever it is, I DIDN'T DO IT!" Glad to see you'e healing!

I should so get that, but by the time it gets here I might be already healed.

And THANKS! Me too!!!

oh my gosh!! i hope you are getting better with each day but I bet it turns green and yellow and purple before it looks normal again. I hope the person that gave that to you in martial arts at least paid for your lesson or took you out for sushi!!!

Jordan - Nope I didn't put makeup on it. I normally don't wear makeup, so that would reguire me to go get some and I am too lazy. It's a lot better now. A little purple on the bottom and the hemorrage it a marble red and white.

Flat Coke - Thanks! Nope the guy didn't take me out for sushi! I should hit him up. lol! But it did get me instant ice packs and tylenol
