Here is hoping everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend.
Ours was going pretty well until Sunday afternoon. That would be when I decided to go lay in my bed and just chill out. Soon hubby came after. Well then moments later, P came running in and jumped on the bed, on top of me. Then crying and saying, ” It hurts!” Turns out, he had his Harry Potter wand in his hand when he jumped in the bed and stabbed himself in the eye. Which was now bleeding. Hubby and I both got up and we were out the front door in a matter of minutes on the way to the Emergency Room.
Lucky for P there was no one in the waiting room. We got seen pretty quickly. Our main concern was we could not tell where the blood was coming from and being on the eye, that is never good.
We waited for moments before a Doctor came in to check him out. The only thing P kept saying was he did not want anything (drops) to go in his eyes. He had a traumatic experience at his eye doctor and that is all he remembers. Well, unfortunately, they had to put a special kind of drop into his eye to see where the blood was coming from. This took 3 doctors to hold him down because he was not about to allow them to put any drops in his eyes.
After the drops were finally put in, they used a really cool black light and his eye lit up all green. I guess it helps see where the blood is actually coming from. It was pretty cool to see.
Turns out he does have a small abrasion on the inside of his eyelid. He will have to go see a specialist this week to make sure he does not have any other damage. Plus, we have some ointment we are required to put on the inside of his eyelid to prevent any infection. Yeah, thats been fun to put INSIDE his eye!
His eye on the outside doesn’t look too bad. You can see where he actually hit it. I guess he did it with enough force and just right that it cause an abrasion on the inside as well.
Also, P is a little upset he can’t go swimming until we see the specialist and get the ok.
