This is how my poor little bugga's eyelid looked when she woke up yesterday morning. She is just like me when she gets bit by May flies. The poor thing could barely see out of that eye. I tried to get her to put an ice pack on it (per instructions on WebMD) but she didn't like it. So, I gave her some Benadryl and Acetaminophen.
She started to feel better and of course her ADD/ADHD kicked in. She was bored so after much fussing and whining about me not being able to play with her (she thinks I sit around all day while she is at school and not running around the house frantically trying to complete chores, run errands, make phone calls, order stuff online, fill out forms and what not) she wanted to make a stuffy out of felt. So she told me what shape she wanted and I drew it, cut it and she sewed it.
Here she is this morning looking and feeling better. Still itchy and sore (she got bit on Monday!) so I gave her Benadryl and Acetaminophen. Of course she had to take her kitty to show off at school ; ) I just taught her how to sew this past year and she has become quite good at it.
Am I the only one who feels like they just want to put their sickly, accident prone kid in a bubble? She is always sick and/or injured. I feel so bad for her that she always has something painful or uncomfortable going on with her.
