Yesterday Rachel woke up with a nasty cough. She was supposed to start pre-school but I decided we should probably keep our germs to ourselves. That would have been a nice first day--"Hello, this is Rachel, take these germs home and spread them amongst yourselves!" She seemed fine in the morning just the cough. Then she woke up from her nap with a pretty high fever and really gooey eyes. So I called the doctor and the got her in at 7:15 last night.
She has a bit of pink eye, but luckily nothing else. So we left with a prescription for some eye drops and instructions to put drops in four times a day. Last night I got her to sit still long enough to put one drop in and that was enough for her. Sobbing ensued. "I don't want drops in my eyes!" That's pretty much what I've heard for the last day. So far we've successfully put two doses in today but they are always accompanied by much crying so I'm not even sure the medicine is getting in.
I can't even bribe the poor little girl to let me do it. She still has a fever and bad cough so she's extra emotional too. She doesn't want anything that she normally would give in for. I feel for the girl, I really do but she's got to give in sometime! Any one have any ideas on how to get a big three year old to like--or at least endure--eye drops?
