On Friday night, Walter managed to poke Nate in the eye. After a terrible night of sleep, a trip to urgent care on Saturday morning told us that he had a tear on his cornea. And a trip to Target's optical center got Nate antibiotic eye drops to prevent infection and a contact lens to act as a barrier between his eye and eyelid. The contact provided lots of relief - a brilliant plan, since eye patches are apparently no longer used. Although, the patch would have been more fun, what with all the pirate jokes I happen to know.
Today, Nate's eye seems to be almost back to normal and the pain mostly gone. I guess he'll have to get back to changing diapers. No more excuses!
