Guess who's got pink eye?

That's right...Braeden!

We first noticed his eyes were a little crusty when he woke up Thursday morning. He's been a little congested for a week now, so we thought it might have to do with that. He hasn't been acting any differently--sleeping well, eating tons, and playing like a madman--so we weren't too concerned. But Friday it was a little worse, and we found out a couple of kids at day care had eye infections including Hudson.

Saturday morning it had gotten worse, so we took him to the pediatrician's office. And his doctor said it was pink eye! She gave us an antibiotic eye drop to use for a week and said it should be better in a couple of days. Now Mat and I are washing our hands every half hour and making every effort not to touch our eyes.

The doctor told us that pink eye often goes hand in hand with ear infections, but she said his ears looked good. So, it could be worse!
