So the eyeball?
It is fine.
I may have overreacted a tad bit.
And that doctor who needed to go to a meeting so we needed to get there RIGHT AWAY?
It took about 45 minutes to see him.
While we waited, the majority of people asked what happened. They also noticed his finger.
Much laughter at my child's expense. Okay, not really at his expense but IT'S FUNNY. So? Much laughter.
The assistant found it amusing too.
I may have mentioned to the doctor that I sort of overreacted. At which point he informed me "surprisingly" many people overreact to eye injuries. Hmmm... imagine that. He said he sees this stuff all the time but most people only see it once or twice in their lives. I mentioned this is our second eye injury so I'm done - enough for one lifetime. He then proceeded to look at me like I had two heads. I'm guessing he's expecting to see me back.
The other thing he told me? The nastiness that is his eye is suppose to get worse looking before it gets better.
No. Don't worry, I won't post pictures. I realize no one really wants to see this. I did take a picture though because the boy was unable to see what it looked like. So I took a picture in the waiting room. He thought it looked as if there was a hole in his eye. He also thought that was cool. Let me repeat - A HOLE.
Calm down. There is no hole. Just a deep scratch. Guess he can't be as cool as he wants.
The whole ordeal ended with him getting a couple drops in his eye. And Whalaa! Done.
Alex has taken every opportunity to sick Tyler out by pulling his lower lid down. Tyler, the child who perpetrated the crime, has no stomach for blood. He almost vomited last night. At that point I had to stop the showing and explain to Alex that Tyler was just getting back for when Alex scratched Tyler's cornea 5 years ago. Yes, it's true. The other eye incident I mentioned. No blood though.
So now? I decree we are done with eye injuries. Unless of course the parenting Gods wish to laugh at me AGAIN.
