the past 2 days, he kept asking for the lights off in the house because it was hurting his eyes. this morning, his left eye was pink & watery. so, a call to the doctor.
this evening, his cheeks & under his nose & eyes are all splotchy too (i don't know if that has anything to do with pink eye or not??). tonight, they are both gooey.
the eye drops. 3 times a day for 10 days. it's gonna be a loong 10 days. his first excuse for not wanting eye drops was that he was afraid his friends would laugh at him & call him a papaw (we've been putting eye drops in my papaw's eyes for 2 months now after his cataract surgery.). oh the things he worries about! i assured him they would not & that people of all ages use eye drops.
getting those drops in is such a pain. i looked up some tips on the internet, but they didn't help us much. the first time it took daddio to hold his hands & me opening his eye & placing a drop in. before bed, justin tried to reason with him about the drops. did not work. we had to hold him down again. i wish there was a better way!
