I come in from the cold yesterday, to find my son whimpering with his hand over his right eye, and my wife calling for me. Apparently, he was "petting" the cat, and she decided she didn't like what he was doing, so she lashed out and scratched his eye! Nan took him to the emergency room, and they said he had a corneal abrasion. Poor kid was hurting pretty bad. So now he's home from school today, with Nan doing the Mom thing keeping an eye on him, and administering painkillers as needed. It's supposed to heal pretty quick, though. 3 days or so.
He refuses to wear an eye patch. He could be a little(not really) Governor! Or pirate, I guess. He should take advantage of the situation, right? Come up with a story to impress the chicks. Got in a fight with a rabid Honey Badger or something.
