PINKEYE!!

Yes, Leif just called from the Dr. office. (Thank you, to Dr. Benda and his staff for staying late so we could see you!!) Eliana has pinkeye. Apparently, it's not a good idea to rub your runny nose up into your eye. Turns out that's how infections are born.

Poor girl.

It doesn't seem to be slowing her down any, though, which I suppose is good. Or bad, depending on what sort of respite I thought I was going to get by having a sick daughter. Guess she won't be sleeping this one off....

oh that's no good. breast milk or colloidal silver will clear it up super fast! :)

Yow! She's a trouper. Hope you don't get it. What is colloidal silver? Your first commenter suggested it, and I don't know what it is. Hum, something to ponder.

Oh the joys of having little ones. My are all grown and gone, but I sure remember. Blessings from Costa Rica

Sounds like we just potentially missed getting it!!!
Hopefully it will clear quickly.

you can google colloidal silver to find out more info, but essentially it's a liquid that has super teeny tiny silver particles (the right kind should be clear like water). silver is known to heal many things, pink eye and colds are what we use it for. you can usually find it at a health food store. if the kids are facing a bad cold i'll simply put the reccomended dose in their drinking water... i've personally noticed it helps them heal faster and the pink eye clears up within a day or two. if you decide to try it, do research on the different brands available, some have particles that are too big and that's the stuff that isn't safe to use. we use "silva solution" by TriMedica.
