Conjunctivitis. What A Gross Word.

My eyes feel so heavy, dry, and itchy. I can barely keep my head up. The last two weeks both of the boys have been sick. It seemed just like a “normal” sick until yesterday. They had *stuff* coming out of their eyes and by the morning their eyes were matted shut. So, I woke up at 7:30 AM and made them a “sick appointment”.  It was 40 minutes from then. We rushed and rushed to get us together and go down the street to the pediatric clinic. Well, they both have a sinus infection and conjunctivitis. Stetson also has an ear infection. Our first one ever in this household. So, they are both on antibiotics and eye drops. I had to make out a chart to keep up with the times they get a dose and how much and if I had even given them medicine or not. It is working well so far!

medicalI am glad that we decided to take them to the doctor. Once they couldn’t open their eyes when they woke up, I knew it was time. After Stetson has eye drops forced into his eyes 4x a day for 10 days, he might be scarred for life. Any who, I am running on 3 hours of interrupted sleep and I really think I am secretly dosing off as I type. So I will wrap this up and I’m hoping to get the kids to sleep and take a nap myself!
