Q: Your child exhibits the first signs of pink-eye on a Saturday, what time is it?
A: 10 minutes after the doctor's office closed until Monday.
Thus, Saturday evening saw us back in the ER.
AW: The hospital near and named for the LovelyTownCenterWithAnOutdoorIceRink is really top-notch. We were in and out of their ER in under an hour-and-a-half, including intake and discharge.
AW: so far, MM is the only one who's got it. I'm keeping all appendages crossed that it'll stay that way.
W: He's not allowed to go to school until Tuesday and Monday is Math Game Day - there will be weeping.
At first we thought it was an unusually (for him) intense allergy attack - seeing as how Friday was field day and he'd been extra congested all evening. By five o'clock, however, it was clear that a) one eye was worse than the other and b) it now looked exactly like all the cases of pink-eye I had as a kid. And so, after an over the phone consult with our pediatrician, and calling around to various urgent care places to discover that they are all only open 9-5, M-F, we went off to the friendly ER and were treated beautifully.
And we've used more bleach and hot water in my house this past month than the whole year previously
All of which is to say, Sarah at Ratatat? I'm there with you.
