Friday Morning when I went to get Linden up his eye was red and swollen. I had a mini heart attack and quickly ran all the things that could had happened to him in my head...Did he hit his head on something?....Is it allergies?....Did something bite him??? I figured I would watch him and see how he acted. By lunch it had went down alot but after nap it was bad again! It was actually worse then it was that morning! I quickly called the Dr.s office and told them what was going on. Our Pedi called back and said to get to the office as soon as we could, that she would wait on us. That kinda worried me, but I knew he was acting fine, so I stayed calm and just got there. Once we got there she took one look and said.. "Oh yep, Its a bite!" Luckily, there was no infection and she said that it would just run its course. She looked at his eye (which he HATED!!!) really good and said that his eye looked fine and that as long as it didn't get infected, besides looking bad, it would be ok. As of today, its all better. Its still a little puffy, but most of the swelling is gone and you can actually see where the bite is.
Here are picture's from Friday Morning...
Also note that he got a hair cut! That's a whole different story and a whole different Mini Heart attack! I guess if your not use to his hair, you couldn't tell. It looks fine and it all worked out, but when it happened...oh I was so worried! Eric said he wanted to "trim" it, I said are you sure you can do it? He said yeah! So after bath he went to "trim" it, and somehow an INCH of hair was cut! I wanted to cry! I just knew it would be to short, but it actually looks great! I'm happy with it, and no one can say he has a mullet anymore!
