Dear Doctor at the walk-in clinic.
You clearly do not have children.
We would do nothing but hold down a squirming boy aiming drops at his eyes all day long if we tried to do this.
In all truthfulness, Cameron is being a total trooper on this. He does take forever between drops to let me near him again, eyes squished shut, fingers pressing the bridge of his nose in an effort to keep from rubbing. It stings, that’s for sure. He’s not crying, wailing, or refusing. It just takes forever.
And no. We’re not managing to follow the doctor’s directions. I’m not even sure why I’m bothering. Do people actually go blind or die from viral pink eye when they don’t take preventative antibiotics?
