On Thursday, while I was in the cafeteria fighting off various stealth linux attacks, E was home mowing the neighbor’s lawn. While trimming, the string on the weed eater kicked a rock up directly into his eye. One look when I got home, and I could see the rip in the eye membrane.
Luckily, the ophthalmologist feels like it is a very long but shallow scratch. He put him on eye drop antibiotics which seem to sting something fierce, and will see him back to confirm healing.
But we got lucky this time. I guess he’ll have to start mowing in the mornings after the kids go to school so that no one can see him with his dorky eyewear.
