Goopey Eye...About 3 months ago Jackson came home with what doctors call an orbital eye infection. The eyeball itself is unaffected, but the socket or "orbit" of the eye is infected, and this is not a great thing to have. It's not contagious, but it's not good.
I picked Jack up from school yesterday to find that he had a swollen and bruised eye again. I think it's another orbit infection...Ken thinks Jack took a header and it's just swollen. We've decided to keep him home from school until we can get to the bottom of this. If the swelling doesn't go down I'll know it's another infection...
I wonder what causes this. I've looked it up on WebMD.com , but I get no result. I call this "goopey eye". I had something similar as a child, and antibiotics get rid of this, but my question is where and how does it start? We change sheets regularly, keep his clothes clean and make sure he washes his hands often, but still I'm perplexed.
Anything that happens to this child is a result of his surroundings, and we know this, but "goopey eye" or no, school will have to wait a little longer.
Prepare for the bouncing off of the walls again...Good times.
