bad news, just news

Jack went to school on Thurs like usual. When I got there to pick him up, he wasn't in the classroom. One of the classroom aides brought him back and told me his eye had been watering and kinda goopy. Someone (at the time I thought it was the nurse) looked at it and told the aide it looked like a sinus infection. Okay, I thought. Not a big deal. After school, we went to play at Braska's house and were there quite a while. On the way home Jack fell asleep. By the time I put him in bed, unloaded the van and put stuff away, and checked the message on the answering machine, it was later in the afternoon. The message basically said that Jack can't come back to school until he's been cleared of pinkeye from a dr, and I need to call the nurse 'cause she wasn't there when he was looked at. What?! That's not what I heard when we were AT school. Grrrr.

Couldn't get him in anywhere to have it looked at that day, it was watery all evening but didn't look red or seem to bother him. Next morning, it looked better. Again, a little watery and goopy after nap, but not too bad. Sat morning, holy cow! Both eyes were red, swollen, and very watery/goopy. Super yucky. So off to the dr we went and yep, pinkeye! I honestly don't think any of my kids ever had it. I worked for an eye dr for awhile, and saw it many times so it doesn't scare me, but blech. We got some lovely ointment to apply 3x per day and it doesn't seem to bother him a bit to put it in. He doesn't wiggle or fuss. Just looks at me like "what was that all about?". Sweetie.

That was the bad news. The just news? He now weighs 29 lbs. I would've sworn it would be more like 32 or 34 even. But he hasn't cracked 30 yet. Interesting.
