Eyes Wide Shut

Will woke up Tuesday morning with his eyes sealed shut with infection. I was volunteering at the polls, so Brigham handled it. Will explained the situation to me, though. "My eyes is shut. We washed them off. We took a shower."
Despite the ($55 prescription) eye drops, Will continued to battle the infection. He was pretty calm about waking up with eyes sealed shut, and as you can see, he looked pretty cute, too. He would simply suggest, blindly, that we take a shower.
Andrew took all these photos post-shower. Will was at least pretty cheerful about the whole thing.

Maybe it is easier to look on the bright side when you are basically blind.

That happened to me before when I was younger and I am sure I was not pleasant to be around. You are lucky to have an easy going, cute little guy!

That is amazing! What a sweet kid! My twins would have been freaking out and then they would have really come across as Helen and Harry Keller!

Poor baby Will! He even looks cheerful through his haze of infection.

Andrew took great photos. They are great friends.

I can't believe he has been such a good sport! I hope he is better--it's just sad to see.

First, I love the new blog layout. it is darling. Poor poor Will. All of my kids have had that at some time or another but not that bad! My kids hated the drops...I should say poor mom but at least Will looks like a good sport.
