Sick Daddy

Daddy came home from work on Saturday night completely miserable. His right eye looked awful and had been bugging him for 2 days. In the middle of the night he woke up in misery. Any light that was shining in was causing him alot of pain. We called Papa who is an E.R. nurse and he gave advice to get us through the night. In the morning we called our doctor who said he would stop by our house on his way to church. What a blessing to have such a great doctor! By this point I had put dark sheets over our bedroom windows and tried to keep our bedroom as dark as possible. The doctor diagnosed him with a really bad case of conjuctivitis and prescribed eye drops. He said there was a possibility that the infection had set into his iris and he may have to go to an eye doctor to get steroid drops. Thankfully this morning he is feeling better. I am so thankful it was conjuctivitis and not something really serious especially since it was his eye. Needless to say Daddy was not around Cora much and my hands are so dry from washing them so much. The last thing we want is a sick baby!
