Pink eye.

So 2 of my kids have pink eye. The weird thing is they were fine over the weekend and going to bed Sunday night. We'll Monday Hailee woke up and one of her eyes were swollen and both were red and gunked up. I cleaned them and they looked fine so I sent her to school. She came home and they still looked fine but it was weird one minute they looked normal the next they were red. Well this morning I got her up to get ready for school but her eyes were worse and she couldn't open them. Then my 4yr old started freaking out and couldn't open her eyes either. Oh the joys.

I tried getting them into their pediatrician's for an appt but the office supposedly was too booked so we went to immediate care.

I just hope my 2yr old doesn't get it...Although I doubt I'll be so lucky.

No neither of them have allergies.. :/ Piper is the one with allergies and she is (so far) ok.

bummer!!! Any chance you ate nursing or have pumped milk? I have always heard breast milk helps pinkeye. Weird I know but I know several people who say it works!
