Yes, I know - seeds and black eyes, the 2 don't really go. Well, I was planning to do a post today about seeds, but yesterday, Jack had a 'little' accident, so I thought I may as well share yesterday's events and I'll do the seeds post tomorrow!
Anyone with a child at school dreads 'that' phonecall, asking you to come and pick your child up. Just as I sat down to catch up on some blogs, the phone rang from the school saying that Jack had fallen over and hit his eye on the corner of a table. Could I come along, have a look at it and if I felt it necessary, take him to the doctor's. Aaaghhh. Off I went, not knowing what to expect.......Poor thing, when I got there, he was half lying on a chair, pale as anything, with a sick bowl. His eye was gradually swelling, and apparently he had dropped off - eek. Even with my limited medical knowledge, you don't want them doing that.
I decided to trot to the doctor's to get an appointment. 3 hours later??!! we got in and the doctor told us there was quite a lot of bleeding underneath the eye and it might be worth a trip to the hospital. Me, being me had to establish on what basis, what did I need to look out for etc etc. The symptons to look for were those of a head injury. We've got some drops to prevent infection and he has to stay off school. Fortunately he seems OK at the moment, and I hope the swelling goes down.
This was all as a result of playing tag and as Jack got tagged he got 'accidentally pushed' - em......
What a drama though! His friend kindly did him a card - how sweet.
