What did we do this weekend???

We battled ANOTHER Colt mystery illness!!!

On Friday I got a call from Colt's babysitter saying his eyes didn't look good. She didn't say I needed to come get him so I called Gregg and told him to take a look when he dropped Riley off and call me if I need to come get him. About 45 minutes later I got the call...."He's gross you need to take him to the dr." So I rushed over to get him...this was at 3:30 Friday evening. Pink eye was their diagnosis, they sent me to Wal-Mart to pick up some drops. By 6:00 that same evening this was my little fella........ What the heck????!!! I've never seen pink eye look quite like that. He couldn't open his eyes!!! I tried to open them for him so that we could get some drops in.....a light pink blood like fluid came out.....I panicked!! I ran to the phone and called my eye dr, yes it was 8:30 at night, thankfully my eye dr. is also a friend!!! Unfortunatley she WASN'T home!!! After I calmed and he calmed and Gregg calmed we decided to rub the cream on his eyes and wait till the morning. Thankful when he woke up Saturday morning the swelling had gone down and I was able to get his eyes open. We started hard and heavy on the gel.
Sunday morning Riley and I went to Sunday school and I was able to talk to Kristi (our eye dr.) about what was going on and show her pictures. She said "Nope that's not pink eye" Ughhhhh that stupid urgent care!!! She thinks it's a sinus infection so onto antiboitic we went.

By Sunday evening this was Colt.
And today, Monday, he's looking even better. Slowly but surely we'll get our non red eyed, non puffy, crazy little cowboy back.

So how was your weekend???!! Better than ours I hope!!

Eli got the same thing three years in a row on his birthday. HOWEVER, his was nothing near that bad!!! He just had the serious "matter" stuff and a little puffiness, but nothing like what Colt did! They told me it was just a cold that had moved into his eyes. I would've absolutely freaked out too if his eyes had been that swollen! Yowza!!!
