Son of a Witch: #1 When Thumb Meets Eye

Why hello there. You may know me as nicarus, but for those of you who do not, I am Robin's extremely handsome and fantastic son. We have been planning on...or at least talking about having me as a guest blogger every once in a while for quite some time now. We will entitle this guest series "Son of a Witch." Although today was not penciled into our schedules as the first time I would write a post, a distressing and afflictive turn of events necessitated my involvement with Wiccan Writes.

Now...what, you ask, is this particular turn of events?

It is my unfortunate duty to notify you of the current situation regarding Robin and her left cornea. Apparently, upon waking yesterday (Wed, July 20th), after petting the female canines, Robin viciously poked herself in the eye with her thumb. She is uncertain whether she was in the process of tying her hair back or some other activity involving the close proximity of her hand to her eye, but she scratched her cornea like nobody's business.

She is temporarily blind in her left eye for now, but considerable progress has already been made with healing and her vision (well, at least being able to read a giant projected E is progress) . The doctor said that if the scratch was the size of a half-dollar yesterday, it is now the size of a quarter to a silver dollar...A comparison that would be lost to anyone born in the 90s. It is a painful time for her especially because she isn't able to read, write, or follow her blogs. But fear not! For nicarus is here! I will read aloud as many blogs as my vocal chords will allow and likewise, Robin will dictate to me the thoughts and feelings she has regarding her magickal, albeit stressful and painful (for now) life, and I will in turn type them for her. Oh yes, because my friend Chris, whose photos have been featured in previous posts, is out of town, I will also try my hand at being a photographer.

It is uncertain at this moment how long she will be in pain or when her left eye vision will return. She is in high spirits, though, and never misses an opportunity to laugh.

She fears this will put a damper on this coming weekend with her daughter Raethan, chiefly because this is Raethan's last weekend home as an unmarried woman. The crafty and flowery things she had planned to accomplish this weekend for the wedding will now be carried out by myself and Raethan under the not-so-watchful eye of Robin.


So concludes the first installment of Son of a Witch.

Oh no! Poor Robin! I will light a candle for speedy recovery, and tell her this is SO something I could see happening to myself. I once got a contact lense lodged in my eye and that sort of thing is just miserable. Nice to meet you!

Oh I know how that hurts! I´ve done the same myself once and as I remember it it took a week for the pain to disappear.

Nice to see You here Nicarus! Send Robin my wishes for a quick recovery!

Christer.

Welcome, Nicarus! My thoughts are with Robin. Her eye injury soundsso painful and must also be frustrating for her as I know she had so much to do to prepare for the big wedding! She's lucky to have you in charge of her blog and her flowers!

Magic Love Crow said...

Welcome Nicarus! Nice to hear from you, although I am sorry for the circumstances!

I recently scratched my eye with a piece of clear plastic that was otherwise invisible to me, and I know how much that little scratch hurt and still makes my eye tired, even a couple of months later, so I fully sympathize with Robin!

I will send some healing for her!

Give her my love!

Jeanne said...

Oh what a good son Robin has in you Nicarus!! She has every reason to be proud! And please give Robin my heart-felt wishes for a speedy recovery! ♥ Looking forward to your future posts....

Welcome nicarus,
For a first time guest post you did good. Tell Robin I did the very same thing to my eye, except it was the nail of my pinky finger that gouged the heck out of my left eye and after many painful hours and I don't remember how many days as I've pretty much blocked it out it healed quite nicely. I'm sure her's will too.

FreeWitch said...

Doh! Oh my, I sure hope she gets better very soon!

Danni said...

Hello, Nicarus! Your writing is clever, I hope you'll guest post fairly often.

Poor Robin, as a sufferer of chronic corneal troubles I can (quite literally) feel her pain! I hope the gash goes from silver dollar to dime to non-existent in no time.

Jessie said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear this, what a horrible thing to have happened. I wish you a speedy recovery, you so don't deserve this setback! All things for a reason though and the reason will show itself soon enough.x Let me say while I'm here, what an amazing son you have! :)xx

Well hello there Nicarus! You explained the situation and are doing the job well. Hope it all improves for the big weekend.

Maggie said...

Nicely done, Nic! You are truly a blessing. Tell your mom sorry about the unintentional 'make me a pirate' situation, and I hope it all gets better soon.

If she's wearing an eye patch for the wedding, we definitely need photos. :)
