Two Black Eyes and the Flu

Okay, so this morning Hunter woke up with his left eye all puffed up...nearly swollen shut! I'd noticed all weekend that it was a little red, but this was waaaaayyy worse. I didn't think to take a picture, I just grabbed our antibiotic eye drops (it also happened in July, so we had medicine) and have been putting them in every three hours. After the first drops at 8:00 AM, the puffiness went considerably down! Now as I write this, it actually looks pretty good, but Dave just called me over and told me to look at the white part of Hunter's eyeball, which has a huge scratch on it...Coop probably scratched him. Ugh! Anyway, I just took a picture of his eye. You can tell it's swollen on the top lid and underneath, too. We'll continue to put the drops in for a few days - hopefully the drops will heal it up soon.
THEN - this afternoon Coop totally slammed into the front door and hit his face on the doorknob. I could tell it hurt because he did a sort-of "holding my breath" kind of cry. He finally told me where he hit and I could see his right eye swelling up pretty good. About ten minutes later there was a purple doorknob print right around his eye. OH. MY. GOSH.




All this on a day where Dave stayed home from work because he felt like he was getting the flu...he feels better now though, thank goodness! I have been doing a lot of praying over my family today...for God's healing touch in their bodies. I love these guys sooooo much, that I physically feel their pain when they're hurting! Currently they're all snuggled up watching that stupid show I despise, Monday Night Raw (wrestling). But at least they're all feeling somewhat better. It's safe to say eye'm ready for this day to be over and start fresh tomorrow! LOLOL!

Hope everything gets better for you guys! I'll pray a quick prayer for ya. I was laughing so hard, Avery was looking at the pictures on your blog and I said, "That's Coopy, poor Coopy" and Avery looks at me with a very sad face and says, "OOOH, poor Poopy" LOL.

I'm so sorry! And didn't that all come on the tails of not getting tickets to Opening Day? I hope your week gets better and those eyes heal up quickly!
