Something Sticking in Stefans Eye

When I got home from work today no one was home. I guess they had gone skating.

When they got home Stefan was crying and saying his eye hurt. He had lunch and a nap. When he woke up he was still upset that his eye hurt.

We went out to the pet store and to get a movie. By the time we left the pet store Stefan would not open his eyes.

So I wanted to take him to the hospital. Two people accused me of over reacting.

Kasper went to play at a friends house and we took Stefan to the emergency.

We waited a while, I guess they called in an eye specialist right away.

After a grueling eye examination (who would not cry if some one was staining their eye and putting a stick on your eyelid to keep your eye lid flipped over) it was discovered that he had a small wood chip under his eye lid.

As soon as it was out Stefan was fine. OK, his eye was crazy red, but he could see. He even said it felt better.

So, all is well now.

    I'm very glad that Stefan is okay now! Ouch! That must have been so painful and annoying! Always stick to your guns, Ko-Leen! A child doesn't complain like that and continue to do so for no good reason, and I don't think I've ever heard him complain without a darn good reason in the first place! Kudos!!
