OK, guys, doc just gave me a percocet and two lortabs, so forgive any misspellings or whatever, but I wanted to drop a quick note on here.
The doc said it looks like someone sandpapered my cornea, and that it looks pretty gross. I won't be writing anything tonight and probably not tomorrow, either, because I have to go see an eye specialist sometime tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm supposed to put in eyedrops every 30 minutes, pain medicine every few hours and not get near any bright lights.
I have no idea what's going on, really, but I know the pain got so bad I almost punched the poor doctor.
I know the timing of this really, really sucks, and I apologize for that, but I'll be around the board and do anything I can and be out there as practice as soon as I can. I'm already getting pretty loopy, though, so I might not be able to do much of anything for a couple of days. I don't really know, to be honest. Actually, I have no clue.
I've broken 4-5 bones in my life and had some other painful stuff, but this is about as much pain as I can remember. As long as it's nothing super, super bad, though, they say eyes usually heal pretty quickly, so hopefully this won't keep me away from work for too long.
Thanks for your patience. I haven't had a sick day from work in a long time, so this feels weird, but hopefully it won't be that bad.

We'll survive. Get well soon.
I work in a hospital, worst thing to do is go against doctor's orders. Just take it easy and let that eye get better buddy. Hope to hear from you soon.
It's an awesome battle scar, though...
Get well soon man. JMO but an eyepatch with your beard would be awesome

Get Well, Brother! We will need you this weekend and next week. If I lived near I would send over some nanner puddin!
Going for the look, huh Rucker? Seriously though,said a prayer for you and hope you recover quickly.
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
On a side note- Ryan, would a minor eye itch send you to the sidelines?
I keed- I keed!
Get well soon!
Almost two years ago I had a a cornea ulcar and that was some of the most pain I have ever been in. Any kind of light absolutely killed my eye and it never stopped until I got to the eye doctor the next morning and had my eye dialated. I feel for you because it is nothing but a pain. I had to use drops for a couple of weeks, so if yours is anything like mine you will be applying the drops for a while.
A scratched cornea is pretty common for contact lens wearer. Do you wear them?
raccoons probably scratched your eyes while you slept jk! Hope it gets better fast
Wes said on his Facebook page that he got an eyepatch out of the deal. I'm just blaming those damn raccoons!!
Take care my friend. With Kevin on leave the redhead will cover for you. She probably arranged for the racoons to catch you napping. She saw her chance and she took it.
