Before we went away, Youngest was having a problem with his eyes.
They would get red and swollen and mucky, and I was treating him with prescription eye drops that we use for conjunctivitis, but it wasn't really helping.
I stopped by the pediatrician's office the day before we left and described what was going on with him and she sent me to the pharmacy for some different drops...
I decided that his vacation was not going to be troubled by his mucky eyes.
I packed the eye drops.
I did not pack the nebulizer -and I only grabbed the inhaler as an afterthought (it had just been sent home by the school).
The drops sat untouched for the nine days we were away.
His eyes never bothered him for a minute.
I had them on the plane, just in case...
I had them in my room the day we got home -
Look! I said to K when I unpacked them, the freakin eye drops that I have been carrying around for nearly TWO WEEKS AND HIS EYES ARE FINE!
So. That was the other day.
Youngest woke up with sticky itchy eyes.
AND I CAN'T FIND THE DAMN EYE DROPS.
I did find this stuff though.
Stay tuned for: I could perform open heart surgery with either or our two first aid kits - in the Himalayas...and yet, we do not have a single regular Band-aid.
