Eye see…

Melody sporting her first patch...

Every mother’s nightmare…? Well, I certainly wasn’t the happiest Mommy yesterday when my daughter practically clawed her eye out! She had been pretty fussy yesterday morning and I just thought she poked herself in the eye but even then she was being¬† a whole lot of crankier than she had ever been before and then I knew something seriously wrong must’ve happened because she wasn’t even made happy by nursing…I took a closer look at her eye and noticed that she had scraped a bit of cornea off her eye! She really was in severe pain… I quickly called an advise nurse and was told to put a patch of gauze over her eye until I was able to get her to the Doctor. Well once there, they confirmed what I had said she did and they also saw what she did but using an ultra violet light with this dye that they filled her eye with. She was so much happier after they put some pain killing eye drops in her eye.¬† Well, little Melody’s eye seems to have healed up on it’s own now… Praise God but now I am going to be obsessively compulsively filing and trimming her nails… though I had trimmed them three days before this happened. Well, I hope she learns also to be more careful… It was quite a day!
