A trip to urgent care

After dinner Igor and I went outside. Igor wanted to play with rocks and I wanted to water my plants. Igor was playing his favorite game- smashing rocks- when a broken piece of rock shot into his eye. There was screaming and gnashing of teeth. He wouldn't let me touch his eye so I knew it wasn't good. He kept saying through his tears, "Mommy when is it coming out?" A piece of rock was stuck in his eye. We headed to Urgent Care, I was afraid he had a scratched cornea. All the way to Urgent Care I was praying, let the waiting room be empty. When we arrived the waiting room was empty!
The doctor confirmed that there were pieces of rock in his eye but his cornea was not scratched. She washed Igor's eye out (I will spare you the details). I'll have to give Igor eye drops to fight off any potential infection.

Igor and I have talked about the rock game.... he isn't going to play it anymore.

This morning we are going to Kindergarten orientation. Igor doesn't want to go. He is pretty sure there will be a fire alarm... I have PROMISED him there won't be a fire alarm today but he is not sure.

I'm glad to hear he doesn't have a scratched cornea. Jeremy did that, and it was *very* painful.

I hope there were no fire alarms at orientation! :-) What a big boy!

Love you! Susan

I'm glad that Igor's eye will be okay. I can imagine how terrified you were too. I will be praying for Igor's eye to heal without any infections. I can't believe he is starting kindergarten.
