So, pink eye is going around.. and lucky me, Aubrey picked it up from a friend.
Hvae any of your kiddo's had this?
I read that since it's not gunky (just red/puffy) that it has to run it's course and drops will only help soothe it but not make it go away.. so we're using drops from walmart. It started Sat. afternoon and as of tonight, Tuesday, it's not any better!!
Any ideas how long this will stick around? And for her to go back to school, does it have to look totally normal or can a little pink (but not puffy) be ok? I hate that she's missing so much school.
She's doing pretty good not touching it but and we're washing hands, wiping down door knobs, changing her pillowcase.. I really, really hope no one else gets it.. but she's fighting me HARD on staying in her room. She says she's soo bored.. I dont' know what to do. I don't want her out playing with my 3 year old or the baby.. if they get it, I'm sure I'll get it. I've tried movies, coloring projects, all sorts of things. Normally she would love that! But she keeps coming out and trying to play with the boys.
Any suggestions? The worst part is she's taking it so personally.. she doesn't understand how contagious (sp?) it is.. I'm being really light/fun about reminding her to stay in her room and she still gets so upset.. yells how mean i am.. because she doesn't want to stay in there. I feel so bad. My poor baby just isn't understanding the reasoning.. and I'm getting very frustrated. I'm also cocerned because I'm pretty sure you can't wear contacts if you get it.. and that's all I have (my fames broke almost a year ago and I don't know where they are anyway), AND I'm on my last pair of contacts and have to get an eye exam to get more.. I can't see ANYTHING without my contacts. Seriously, probably less than 12". How am I supposed to do things if I'm almost blind?
Oh yeah, and the baby's front teeth are coming in and he's miserable.. Between that and the idea of Aubrey cooped up in the house (possibly) the rest of the week, I think I'll go crazy!
