Contact gone bad.

I wear gas permeable contacts. The thing about these contacts is, if they ever get dry they are very easy to pop out. Also if they ever drop where suction gets under the contact, you can't get them up easy. I have a little instrument that I got years ago, that is shaped to fit on the contact and pull it either from the eye or the surface where it has landed. I have had to use that many times.
Tonight the girls had already got in bed. ( I let them sleep with me. That is a treat for them)
I was taking my contacts out when all of a sudden the contact went to the corner of my eye. When this happened it created a suction that made the contact stick to the white of my eye. It hurt so bad. Of all things it was my bad eye. I was hurting and I could not see to get the contact. I put my glasses on and saw where the contact was at. I got my little instrument and tried to pull the contact out. It was stuck. I was starting to panic because I was in pain and it was not coming out of the eye. It had a good suction on the eye. I yelled for Courtney to come help me. If it had not been my bad eye, I could have saw how to get the contact out better. I wanted Courtney to pull the contact out with the instrument I had. She freaked and could not do it. I was praying for God to please help me. I told the girls that they was going to have to pray because the contact was not coming out and I was hurting.
The girls touched my heart. Brooke said, "God help my mommy. I don't care how you do it, just help her."
Courtney prayed also. I don't know if God allowed my tears to wet the contact and loose the suction, or what, but God moved that contact back on the brown of my eye, and I was able to get it out. My eye is very sore. I don't know if I will be able to wear my contacts tomorrow. I hope it did not scratch my eye. That is the bad thing about gas permeable. They are hard and they are so uncomfortable. I love the soft lens, but my eyes are to bad for them. I can't see as well with them. Anyway, I wanted to share the special prayer with you guys. I love my girls so much. God is so good to us.
