Things Not on My To Do List For Friday

Take Sage to the ER. Check

He poked his eye with a toy. Said toy has been thrown away. It came in an astronaut set and was supposed to have a ball on the end. I don't know how it happened, I was in the kitchen, he was in the living room. He started crying and told me what happened and I saw pink tears coming down. He also told me it hurt to have it closed and it hurt to have it open.

I called the pediatrician who said take him to the ER to make sure he didn't scratch his eyeball.

$154 later and we have an antibiotic eye drop for a scratch under his iris.

As we waited, he acted totally normal and then forgot which eye he had poked. It also stopped hurting.

I went prepared and he played with cars while he waited.

The slope of the bed made a good track.

He looks pretty distressed in those pictures, huh?!

Also, go visit 4 Little Men and Twins to win a pouch sling. If you don't want it, you can always give it to me!


  1. man life with 3 boys is going to be filled with trips to the ER. I have been lucky so far. How many does this make?

  2. I cannot BELIEVE how many times you've been to the ER since you moved! :) Like the previous commenter, we too have been lucky so far. Not exactly a fun outing for a Friday, right?

  3. I can not believe that we've only been to the ER once in 8 years. It was when Grayson broke his collar bone AND Gavin broke his toe while we were out of town! ha!

    glad he's okay! :)


  4. At least he's never had to go in an ambulance . . . or a helicopter . . . for nothing! :) Glad he's OK!! He's now tied with Sammy at 3 ER visits.

  5. Man oh man, those boys sure give us a run for our money!! Many times, we waited like, 4-6 hours in the ER waiting room, only for them to start feeling better... giving us a "do we leave, or do we stay just in case this ___fill-in-the-blank___ issue comes back tomorrow..." decision to make. Lovely!
