PINK EYE~CONJUNCTIVITIS~Whatever you call it!

OK~ Blaine wakes up this morning- eye stuck shut and oozing.........YUCK!!!!  Great news, the Broers household has an 18 year old with pink eye!  Who would have ever imagined with a 14 year old and 18 year old boy in the house we would be dealing with this.  I remember the days when they were little, "Mrs. Broers, this is the nurse at Hoover Elementary, one of your boys is in the office.  He has pink eye and needs to go home."  Well, here we are many moons later..........A visit to the eye Dr., who provided him with excellent service, one miserable young adult, and a Mom praying she does NOT get it!  I did contract this yucky stuff when I was in my 20's.  I remember saying that I did not wish it on my worst enemy!  Well, let's see what fun we can have tomorrow at the Broers household.  After All, It's All, In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. Yuck - Pink eye is no fun! My own kids have had it plenty of times. And I chuckled at the reference to Hoover Elementary! It's my alma mater! Woohoo!

  3. I remember having pink eye when in my youth. I know this sounds crazy but my mom would tell me to use a milk and bread eye bath! You would just soak the bread in warm milk and place on the eye for a few. You know, I really think it helped!!
