When he woke up this morning (at 7:30am- wahooo!), he looked a little odd. When I looked closer I saw that his eye was swollen and glued shut with dried blood. I washed his eye with a warm cloth and I was able to pry it open enough to make sure his eye was still in his head. He kept it shut until miraculously a bowl of bee cherrios (honey-nut cheerios) made him feel well enough to open it. Since daddy the nurse is away, he asked if we could go down to the health centre so his Auntie Jeanne, one of Matt's co-workers, could have a look at it. I figured that was a good idea too since I wasn't really sure where the blood had come from.
Jeanne took a look and the cut is on the outside edge of his eye and the eye is fine. Over the course of the day it has stayed quite swollen and a redish purple colour. I am curious if it is going to be bruised tomorrow.
I have tough kids!
Here he is first thing this morning:
By this afternoon he was looking a bit better:
