Medical hell...

Four hours, two shots, and two prescriptions later, The Kid and I emerged from the urgent care clinic near tears.

As it turns out, he has two infections in one eye -- conjunctivitis as well as a separate and dangerous infection in the tissues surrounding his eye. Had we not made it to the doctor, he would have ended up in the hospital hooked up to IV antibiotics in a couple days.

We caught it early, which is good. Still, he needed two particularly nasty and painful shots of antibiotics to jump-start the recovery.

Poor dear.

OH my goodness. I hope the Kid is doing OK. How on earth did he get that nasty infection? Hope it's not contagious.

GO TO BED EARLY TONIGHT.

I assume he picked it up from the kids at school, and thankfully he is no longer infectious. hehe.

And as for going to bed early -- no worries -- I zonked out at the computer that night before 9. :)
