Mitrione later revealed that the grotesque swelling of his right eye was caused by a broken orbital floor (aka a orbital blowout fracture — Ouch!).
You’d think that would have been the worst of it, but things didn’t get a whole lot better right away on Monday, as Mitrione had to get his eye lanced. Yes, lanced.
For those not in the know:
lance: V. to cut into or incise a part, such as an abscess for the purposes of drainage of pus or other fluid
And you thought your week got off to a rough start!
