This week I’ve been preoccupied with RL. I’m usually a truly laid-back kind of a mom, but my little guy has me really worried. Look at those baby blues of his… I would give anything to see his right eye clear and open today. My young love woke up Monday morning with scleral injection, conjunctivitis and mildly swollen eyelids on the right eye. Thinking pink eye, we kept him home from school and made a doctor’s appointment. He was started on oral and topical meds 2 days ago, but this morning it was worse than ever, sealed shut with goop, severely swollen, and developing tiny blisters over the eyelid. I’d think allergic reaction to topical med, except we were told to pre-emptively treat both eyes, and the other eye shows no allergic reaction. I have another appointment this afternoon. He’s breaking my heart, trying to be brave, but he’s in so much pain even the lightest touch causes floods of tears. Then there’s the oral antibiotic- upsetting his stomach so much that last night he puked his bed and both kittens! Maybe some day I’ll look back and laugh at the image of those kittens, ears flat, flicking their paws trying to dislodge the chunky nastiness that they were unfortunate enough to be in the line of fire for. What a scene. Bath for three, coming right up. Then I have to travel out of town tomorrow for a conference, but I’m not sure if Daddy can handle the eye cleaning and medicating job. Hubby is such a softie, and it hurts the young love to try to remove that gunk. It has to be done, but will Daddy be up to the task? Ahhhh!
