Another trip to the ED

Well,the good news is that April 15 is almost here! and Dylan only took 2 days to pass his bowel impaction last week.

The bad news is that Sally had to go the ED last night. The kids have little pick axes they use to weed, etc. They've been using them for over a year, no problem. Welll, last night when I was cooking dinner, they were building a volcano and using the pick axes. Sally hit herself in her eye. Thank God, her eyeball is only scratched up a lot.It could've been so much worse. I need to get her to an opthomologist today to check her out more thorouglhy and giver her eye drops, but by the time we were halfway to the hospital she was singing with the radio. She is one tough cookie. The Ed dr. was very surprised she didn't seem to be in a lot of pain. She does seem to have a high pain tolerance.

We have awesome neighbors. I called one on our way out of the house and they came out, took Dylan, feed him, etc. Our next door neighbor used to be an EMT and checked Sally out a little bit, while Mike got the ice pack. When I picked up Dylan our neighbors thanked Dylan for being so well behaved. He was worried about Sally and gave her a BIG hug when he saw her.

So here's to a good report from the eye dr.
