The little one was in daycare one whole week before he caught his first cold. I'm not really surprised as one day I picked him up and the boy playing next to him had snot just running out of his nose. Anderson's cold was so bad that on Monday he stayed home from school and daycare. When I came home from work he curled up in my lap and fell asleep (heart explosion!!). Then he crawled in bed around 7:00 and went to sleep without any dinner. The next day I noticed his sinuses were so backed up that it was leaking out of his eyes. I know that can happen to kids so I thought nothing of it and took him to daycare. Wednesday morning he woke up and his eyes were glued shut with goop. Lovely. It took a warm washcloth and some prying but we got them open. He seemed to not be feeling as well as he did on Tuesday but nonetheless he went to school and daycare. But I was getting concerned about his eyes. When I picked him up from school to take him to daycare, his eyes were very goopy and he just looked bad. While at work I searched the internet. WebMD told me he was going to go blind and his eyes would fall out. Everywhere else told me he probably had bacterial conjunctivitis. I called the doctor and got him in right away. And you know what? Yep, he had conjunctivitis. I had sent him to school and daycare for two days with a very contagious eye condition. Lovely. So, Thursday he stayed home, we started him on prescription eye drops and by Friday he was good as new.
