Always Wash Your Hands

Since Ben had his eye surgery, I've had to put drops into his left eye 3 to 4 times a day. One of the drops actually dilates his pupil. Well stupid me...I put the drop that dilates his eye into his eye this morning. Before I washed my hands, I rubbed my eye because it was itching. Without realizing it, I got some of his eye drops into my eye. Must have gotten some on my finger when I was putting the drops into his eye. Well I started noticing that my vision was getting blurry in my left eye and when I looked into the mirror, my pupil was dilated! Now I'm using plastic gloves when I put the drops into his eye and as soon as the gloves come off, I scrubbing my hands with soap and water.
I never stopped to think that just getting a little bit of that stuff on my finger and then rubbing my eye would do that.

  2. Thanks for warning us. Sometime we just don't think.

  3. Speaking of washing your hands, you asked about soap making. I wrote a bit about it


    There are a lot of sites on the internet that show the how to process.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
